Star Trek conventions can trace their roots back to 1972, when the first "all Trek" convention was held in New York, separate from the longstanding science fiction conventions which focused more on literary SF works. These conventions continued for decades and some still take place worldwide today, including Shore Leave in Maryland and KisMet in the United Kingdom.

Fan-fiction has long been a major part of Star Trek fandom, and within Star Trek fandom a great deal of controversy has long surrounded the idea of Kirk/Spock "slash" fan fiction, which proposes that the two characters had a romantic or sexual relationship. Indeed, Kirk/Spock is credited as the first official "media slash couple" by many fan historians (the term "slash" coming from the "/" mark used between their names, to indicate fiction that imagined them as lovers whereas "Kirk & Spock" would indicate friendship-only).

Based primarily on a space station, the series focused on issues of politics and religion in the Trek universe and allowed for the development of more continuing storylines - and complex recurring characters.

There was considerable controversy in the science fiction fan community when Deep Space Nine first aired - only weeks before J. Michael Straczynski's Babylon 5. Straczynski claimed that he had shown Paramount ideas for a scifi show set on a space station several years previously and that they had used some of his ideas without credit on DS9. This only added fuel between the fans who preferred one series over the other and engaged in endless on-line debates about the two. Did you have an opinion on this controversy?

34. Star Trek Enterprise: Gone Too Soon? - Should the series have been given a longer run?

Star Trek: Enterprise became the first Trek series since the original to be cancelled by its airing network, instead of being finished by the show's producers. UPN cited low ratings and there was the sense that perhaps Star Trek, as a franchise, was dying. Do you agree? Or do you think it was unfair that Enterprise wasn't allowed to "complete" its full airing "mission"?

For many years, there was a "rule" in Star Trek fandom that the even-numbered Trek films were good, and the odd-numbered Trek films were bad. Whether or not you agreed with this rule, there has to be one Trek film you think is the worst of the batch. Which one is it?

Which was your LEAST favorite of the Star Trek films to date?

Was Star Trek: Enterprise cancelled too soon?

38. The Star Trek "Re-Boot": Good Idea or Not?

The 2009 Star Trek film was much anticipated by some Star Trek fans as a chance to revitalize and renew "the franchise" for a new generation. Other fans wanted well enough left alone - and perhaps seen the Trek films instead focus on the characters from Deep Space Nine, Voyager or the other Trek spin-off series. What did you think of the "new" Star Trek?

Are you a fan of the Star Trek "Re-Boot" films (2009's "Star Trek" and the upcoming "Star Trek Into Darkness")?

It's time for Kirk vs. Kirk, Spock vs. Spock, etc...which version of these classic characters do you prefer?
