No, Star Trek is a TV show and a movie series.
Are you playing games with me ? Or are you unaware of the meaning of "universe", here ?

It seems to me there are two types of fans these days. Fans who simply want escapist fantasy, and those who want, what Isaac Asimov called, "escape into reality."
I'm not sure what the hell Asimov meant, there.

I'm not interested in working out continuity of a fake universe, or keeping track of timelines or anything like that. I'm interested in good stories that examine our own human potential.
Watch documentaries and interact with your fellow men and women, then. Fiction isn't going to tell you much about reality.
