Star Trek

Star Trek is set in the future when interstellar travel is commonplace. The United Star Ship (USS) Enterprise is on a five year mission to explore space and make contact with new life forms. The crew are a mixture consisting mainly of people from Earth as well as other planets. Politically, the future Earth is part of the United Federation of Planets. Interstellar travel is accomplished by the use of warp drive which sends the ship at faster than light speed. The ship never lands on planets. It goes into orbit and crew members beam down to the surface using a transporter. The weapons are called phasers and the recording instruments are called tricorders.
