    Voyager is the end of the Trek timeline right? Janeway shook things up at the end by destroying the Borg pipeline to the alpha quadrant, and she returned with advanced weapons and ship sheilding. A new series from there on should be interesting.

    technically the end of the timeline was Spock trying to save Romulus. Plus there's an entire non-canon extension of Trek history in which the Alpha Quadrant is decimated by a massive Borg attack and the Federation, Ferengi, Cardassians, Klingons and "good" Romulans line up against a union of "bad" Romulans, Tzenkethi, Breen, Gorns, and Tholians.
    "Occam" is the name of the alien race that will enslave us all eventually. And they've got razors for hands. I don't know if that's true but it seems like the simplest answer."

    Technically, the movie "Nemesis" is the end of the Trek timeline.

    I used TNG as shorthand because TNG/DS9/VOY (including the movies) are pretty much all at the same "time". TOS and "Enterprise" were in distinct timeframes.

    There's 14 years between the beginning of TNG and the end of Voyager, and (supposedly) only about 10 years between "Discovery" and TOS, so there is that...

    There is no "end" to the Trek timeline, because of the introduction of time travel. The "reboot" movies are all an alternate time-line, for example. You can be sure there are a multitude of alternate timelines due to the temporal cold war. Plus scriptwriters.

    In fact, "Parallels", from TNG, explicitly introduces us to the notion that there are already a near *infinite* number of parallel "timelines" going on - so Trek can do about anything it wants. Very handy for a TV show.

    Ok 10-4 on the timeline, I was just thinking of the tv franchise and not including the later TNG movies which I see overlapping in various ways.
