Star Trek Discovery opened the universe of Kirk, Spock and McCoy to a whole new generation of potential Trekkies. And while it was full of little Easter Eggs for existing fans, it was really made for people with no interest in any of the older Star Trek series.

But, if you wanted to get into the wider Star Trek pantheon, where would you start? Do you need to go back to the original series made in the 1960s. Or can you kick things off with one of the other TV shows? Or are the recent movies starring Christopher Pine the place to start?

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

We're five episodes into the latest instalment of the Star Trek television canon. Despite some weirdness about the Klingons appearance and the way they speak, I think Star Trek: Discovery has the potential to be the best Star Trek series put to air. Some, perhaps many, will disagree but after just five episodes, I've seen enough to make me think this could take the franchise into places Gene Roddenberry never went before.

One of the cleverest plot devices used by Gene Roddenberry in Star Trek was the Universal Translator. It solved the problem of how multi-lingual humans could communicate with alien species. Now, an Australian plumber has teamed with IBM to bring the device to reality. (Well, for Earth-bound speakers, at least.)
