For those interested in my definitive advice on how to watch Star Trek in order, I am a dedicated fan who has explored the fascinating depths of the franchise.
Prepare yourself for an intergalactic adventure by following us as we progress through the series, episode by episode. So, shall we?
How to Watch the Star Trek Movies In Release Order?
Star Trek is best experienced in its chronological order, as doing so allows you to follow the franchise from its beginnings and explore its universe in the same way that the initial fans did, many years ago.
Even though the shows skip around in time, they nevertheless manage to build upon what came before in the chronology of release, thus this makes sense.
Watching the series in this order, rather than trying to piece together a chronological timeline, should give you a little more full image of Star Trek.
The sequence of Star Trek movies (italicized titles) is set to be released.
- Star Trek: The Original Series (TOS)
- Star Trek: The Animated Series (TAS)
- The first six Star Trek films (The Motion Picture up to Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)
- Star Trek: The Next Generation (TNG)
- Star Trek: Generations
- Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (DS9)
- Star Trek: Voyager (VOY)
- Star Trek films 8-10 (First Contact, Insurrection, Nemesis)
- Star Trek: Enterprise (ENT)
- Star Trek (2009), Star Trek Into Darkness, Star Trek Beyond
- Star Trek: Discovery (DSC)
- Star Trek: Picard (PIC)
- Star Trek: Lower Decks (LOW)
- Star Trek: Prodigy (PRO)
- Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (SNW)
A caveat: some viewers who follow this sequence opt to see Star Trek: The Next Generation first. Some Star Trek fans believe that The Next Generation holds up better than The Original Series and is therefore a better place for newcomers to the franchise to jump in.
To gauge your interest, you may watch the first few episodes of TOS; if William Shatner’s Captain Kirk doesn’t do it for you, then perhaps Patrick Stewart’s Jean-Luc Picard would. You won’t get confused jumping between the two series (though they will intersect significantly in the movie Star Trek: Generations).
How to Watch Star Trek in Chronological Order?
An alternate approach is to watch the various Star Trek series in the order they originally aired, as they all take place at different times in a massive history.
This has both benefits and drawbacks: on the one hand, it lets you kick things off with a current show, which may appeal more to some audiences. On the other hand, you might not get the jokes or references made in the most recent episodes.

Where to Watch the Star Trek Movies?
Star Trek, despite its origins in television, has always had a strong cinematic quality. For this reason, the performance is tailor-made for the cinematic experience. A motion picture is the only place to really appreciate the epic scope of command ships and space warfare.
Films representing the further adventures of the Enterprise crews from The Original Series and The Next Generation can be found on HBO Max, while all of the television series can be found on Paramount+. The Chris Pine-starring remakes, however, are still accessible via Paramount+.
