    Hi folks,

    I don't come around here as much as I used to (and mostly lurk), but I got a little obsessive this past week or so and made an infographic about Star Trek turning 47 years old this weekend. Seems as significant an anniversary as any. :lol:

    Here it is: http://jaqandre.ws/47Trek

    How come there are 88 episodes list for Star Trek. I thought it was 79 or 80 depending on how you count them?

    That's episodes AND movies, including the reboot movies.

    Seems like those should be separated, especially in the case of TOS. Since the movies and series were pretty much done by entirely different creative teams. :techman:

    I make it 716 episodes and 12 movies. This reflects the original broadcasts - ignoring feature length stories subsequently split into two parts.

    ENT: 97
    TOS: 80
    TAS: 22
    TNG: 176
    DS9: 173
    VOY: 168

    716

    MOV: 12

    728

    The only thing missing is another pie-chart showing the amount of revenue produced for each section of years. Great work.

    That is indeed the total (and the logic) that Memory Alpha uses, but I went with the Wikipedia method - it made the math easier (and more consistent with the way they're usually aired) to consider each series as a collection of identical-length episodes.

    As for including the reboot with TOS...at one point I had Generations split into TOS and TNG segments at 18 and 100 minutes each, but then what about when Kirk & Picard are fighting together at the end, and what about Picard in the DS9 pilot, and Quark on TNG and Voyager, and Riker on Voyager, and...

    Basically I figured if it's Kirk & Spock, it's TOS. When/if there's a lot more reboot stuff at the 74th anniversary I'd probably make it its own category. And it would be far from an authoritative decision anyway. :)

    I agree with your logic about Kirk & Spock, but as characters from certain series appearing in others... I still take that as part of the series the character guest-appears in.

    After all, McCoy was in "Encounter at Farpoint", and that certainly isn't TOS....
