Watch

There’s so much to choose from! Where to begin?? The original Star Trek series, which aired in the late 1960s, has since spawned five successor series, twelve movies, a plethora of merchandise, and a multi-billion dollar industry collectively known as the Star Trek franchise.

The franchise is owned by CBS Television Studios, which now owns television properties previously held by Paramount Pictures, the studio that produced Star Trek for many decades; CBS Paramount continues to hold DVD rights to the TV series, and the rights to produce feature films.
