I was just reading something about Star Trek that said if you put all the different TV series together there are almost 800 episodes. Can anyone who's way into Star Trek verify this?

Seems to me DW is set to reach 800 episodes right about the time of the 50th anniversary.

Star Trek 79 episodes
Star Trek animated 22 episodes
The Next Generation 178 episodes
Deep Space 9 176 episodes
Voyager 172 episodes
Enterprise 98 episodes

Total 725. So, yeah, Who has more. Though of course the last 4 Trek series would have all been 42 minute episodes and the original series has 48 minute episodes, as opposed to Who's 24 ish minutes for most of the it's run

Running down the list on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Doctor_Who_serials I make it 695 episodes of the classic series plus one TV special plus 102 episodes since the series was revived for 798 total. Though I am on a keyboard that occasionally types 7s of its own volition so it might be worth someone double checking that.

Now who wants to calculate which has produced more minutes of television?

Star Trek? Is that the JJ Abrams thing? I liked that one movie. Didn't realize it was a series.

I always wondered this myself actually.

Looks like that question has been answered now.

Star Trek's only 45 though, isn't it, so could catch up in 5 years (I remember the Google).

Next one due out mid May with Benny Cumberbatch as baddie! Can't wait.

While it technically could end up having produced more episodes in 50 years, it seems improbable. Are there any plans to start a new TV programme?

I'm with saladfingers81 I don't see how all that Jedi stuff could work in a TV programme anyway. It's all just kids' stuff, isn't it?

You never know. Of the making of Star Trek spin-offs there seems no end.

We cannot see every DW episode, though, as 106 are still missing, but we can see most of them. There are more Patrick Troughton episodes missing, than there are William Hartnell. Apparently the Robin Hood series that Troughton did in the 50s, is also missing. Shame!

Doesn't that have Dominic West, who played Gloucester killer Fred West on ITV two years ago?

If the next star trek film is like that last then it might break Mr Cumberbatch's US movie career before hardly started.

Do you mean if:[LIST][*] it gets only an 8.0 rating on user rating aggregator IMDB;[*] it gets only a 95% rating on professional review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes; or[*] it makes only US$236m profit?[/LIST]

None of those

If it is a bad film. I remember being really disappointed after the new Star Trek.

I also think a lot of times that it is the movie after a bad one which suffers.
For instance if a certain actor that is very popular is in a bad film. Millions will still flock to see the film- because the don't know it is bad because they haven't seen it yet. The film will make a fortune so the producers make a sequel. It flops because everyone remembers how disappointing the previous one was.

I am sure plenty of people must like the new Star Trek film, and I'm sure their doctors are taking very good care of them right now ( just kidding )
Really though- I can't think of anyone I've talked to that thought it was great.

You really haven't talked to enough people. It was so very far from being a flop in the eyes of the majority viewer-ship. The chances of the second one flopping for that reason are beyond remote. Actually, I'll happily say impossible. BC is in safe hands.

I like Star Trek in general, just thought that movie wasn't very good.Because it is Star Trek loads of people will go see it just because of that, so I imagine it will still be a huge box office success. I'm guessing it wont make as much money as the previous one though.
I hope I like the new one. I'm sure many people will love it, but if it makes a significant amount less profit than the previous film then the movie producers will put those involved (actors/director) down in their estimation for any future films.

This won't affect BC much. Star Trek isn't the start of his movie career

& just remember that it's J. J. Abrams. "Not as much money as the last one" means nothing to this man. But regardless, "significant amount less profit" won't be a thing. It will be flocked to.

Star Trek the movie was a massive success. Aside from a few grumpy fan boys who prefer interminable space politics and sixth form moralizing and toilet book philosophy. They got a bit cross because it was a bit sexy and exciting and things went boom as opposed to 'zzzzzzz'. The next one looks even better.

Also, sorry but ST was a dead franchise for the masses so in fact more people went to see the last one and will see the next one in spite of it being Star Trek.
