The group at StarTrek.com has launched an official infographic video A Timeline By means of the Star Trek Universe, Half 1 that features the entire varied TV and Film collection of their inter-connected locations on the timeline.
WATCH: A Timeline By means of the Star Trek Universe, Half I
The Star Trek saga has boldly traveled via house and time all through its over fifty 12 months historical past. Starfleet has visited the distant previous, the far future, and even some alternate timelines. Want some context earlier than you dive deep into Star Trek: Discovery and put together for Star Trek: Picard? We have you coated in Half One in every of our video timeline.
Right here’s a snapshot of the entire timeline:
Fascinating that they name this “Half 1”… Implying that there’s far more to come back.
From a DataViz design perspective, I’m not a fan of timelines that don’t maintain a constant scale. There’s an enormous soar from the Massive Bang 13.eight Billion years in the past to the 12 months 1900, then the size is fairly even with 50-year jumps till the 12 months 2150, after which the size modifications once more, making the 50-year jumps are a lot farther aside.
It seems that that is an evolution of an unique design undertaking collaboration between Rachel Ivanoff and Jordan Twaddle that was on exhibit on the The Museum of Pop-Tradition (MoPOP) in Seattle, Washington in 2016. The brand new video provides Star Trek: Discovery to the timeline, and video snippets from every of the reveals.
Again in 2016, they shared this nice animated GIF of the design evolution from the unique timeline design course of:
I hope they have been concerned within the growth of the brand new timeline video as nicely.
