    I managed about 90% of each of the first few tiers, then dropped off gradually to about 50% of the last one.
    Good to see so many FASA references (especially the highly obscure Grey Orion one), and of course any John M Ford reference is always extremely welcome.
    My only suggested addition would be Baton Rouge, or any other starship class name from the original Spaceflight Chronology.

    Wait. The novels rate below "The Orville"? Which isn't even Star Trek?

    I cry foul! :)

    I've never really gotten any deeper than Level 2: TOS (including movies I-VI), the TOS technical manuals, and a handful of TOS-inspired novels and short fiction anthologies.

    Oh, and I've seen Pike's hat.

    It's from "The Conscience of the King", and directly contradicted by Spock in "The Immunity Syndrome":

    "Vulcan has not been conquered within its collective memory. The memory goes back so far that no Vulcan can conceive of a conqueror."
    It's Cetus (as in "whale") Project, not Cestus.

    "Naked Valeris on the Bridge"?!? I know I never saw that. Because like the eye-scream in "Stardust City Rag" (PIC), it's not something I could un-see, no matter how hard I tried.

    As to whether Talosians are hermaphrodites, well, if that's the case, then they could all go <obscenity> themselves.

    Here Come the Brides is Trek canon. I'll fight any heretic who says otherwise. ;)

    I'm not sure what this is supposed to mean. The actress appeared in provocative roles both before and after Star Trek VI (Porky's, Sex in the City), so we have a very good idea of what content to expect if those pictures ever existed or came to the surface.

    Sahaj was created by Leah Charifson (writing as Leslye Lilker), and appeared in the late-70's fanzine series Idic. He's Spock's son by a Vulcan ambassador, age about 10 when Madam Ambassador dies and Spock receives custody of the little hellion. He mostly lives with Sarek and Amanda while Daddy works. The series is currently being continued and is available on-line.

    The bluest sky you’ve ever seen, in Seattle.

    It's not what's being referred to in the picture, but there were at least two porn parodies of Star Trek that I know of: Sex Trek, and Sex Trek: The Next Penetration (I am not making this up!), both out in the 1990s. Sex Trek was fairly unmemorable as a porno -- I actually fast-forwarded through most of the naughty bits! -- but had some pretty funny lines.

    "DR. McJOY": He's dead, Jim.
    CREWMAN: No I'm not!
    "QUIRK": Dammit, man, when the doctor says you're dead, you're dead!

    I'm sure Barbara Hambly appreciates your confidence, "SantaEddie74."

    And lest you think Here Come the Brides is too outlandish, you might want to read up on the history of the real life Seattle. Particularly Bill Speidel's Sons of the Profits and Doc Maynard.

    Lots more than just two. There are dozens of professionally produced pornographic Star Trek films, including the award-winning Sex Trek franchise written and directed by Marc Cushman and the This Ain't Star Trek franchise from Hustler Video, which has some of the highest production quality of pornographic films on the market. Here's an article that briefly covers the franchises.

    But that doesn't even cover the greatest Star Trek "porn" "parody" of all - 2011's Star Trek: The Next Generation - A XXX Parody. It's not a parody. It barely counts as porn (although, yes, there are many sex scenes that don't effect the plot), but at its core, it is a truly high budget Star Trek fan film that tells a story set within TNG (early in the sixth season) with attention to detail, paying heed to continuity, and amazing performances by a couple of the actors (Xander Corvus's Data is the best I've ever seen). Another amazing detail is that Captain Picard isn't played by a porn actor. He's played by a Patrick Stewart impersonator, with his one porn scene performed by a body double. Here's a review of the film.

    I'd like to suggest two additions, both from the world of fanfic:

    Night of the Twin Moons, or NTM, Jean Lorrah's Sarak/Amanda fanfic universe from the 70s, named for the first novel. In early fandom, Lorrah's work was considered the definitive interpretation of Sarek, Amanda, and their relationship. Elements from the NTM-verse crop up in Lorrah's TOS pro novels, The Vulcan Academy Murders and The IDIC Epidemic.

    Talking Stick/Circle, a sweeping Voyager AU series written by Peg Robinson and Joe Little Otter (aka Macedon), starting in late Season Two and mostly written while the series was on the air. Voyager where actions have realistic consequences, people are multifaceted and richly human, and the stakes are high. Published on-line (and still available), and very popular in its day.
