We lost out on seeing some great Star Trek events
So much happened in the past in Star Trek we didn’t get to see, but then, there were moments in the future we missed out on as well. How many of us would have liked to have seen the Enterprise’s first launch with Captain Kirk at the command? What about Voyager and its crew’s actual arrival on planet Earth? And while it’s understandable that every major event couldn’t be included on a series or in a movie due to time constraints, it would be great to catch a glimpse of some of them. TrekCulture has rounded up ten of those that would have been impactful.
TrekCulture’s top ten list are usually some of the best, and this one, “The 10 Biggest Star Trek Events We Never Got To See” doesn’t disappoint as it highlights major happenings that would have really added to our understanding of each series and have brought a lot more punch to them as well.
Some Star Trek moments could still be shown
Many of us have wished we could have seen the founding of the United Federation of Planets, and like Sean Ferrick says in the video, Star Trek: Enterprise’s final episode, “These are the Voyages,” does not count. At all. Most of us wanted to see the pomp and circumstance, hear Captain Jonathan Archer’s speech, and witness the signing. There’s nothing quite like being present at the beginning of something that would change the world forever.
Ferrick discusses the other events, and while I might differ on whether or not I would have wanted to see them, there is one thing that is true. As much as we have seen of Star Trek in the past 55 years, there’s so much more we haven’t seen. Perhaps these events (and others) are something that Short Treks could cover in the future.
