Since the 1987 launch of Star Trek: The Next Generation with “Encounter at Farpoint,” Star Trek television episodes had been produced for nearly 18 years continuously, coming to an end on this day in history.

After the success of Star Trek: The Next Generation, the follow-up to the hit Star Trek science-fiction series of the 1960s, new Star Trek series followed. These included Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager. The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager all lasted seven seasons.

Star Trek: Enterprise would come to an end in its fourth season with the series finale “These Are The Voyages,” which ends with a direct-tie in to Star Trek: The Next Generation. It was on that date on May 13th, that 25 seasons of Star Trek made since 1987 came to an end.

Although Star Trek would live again just four years later on the big screen, as of the writing of this article, it has been nine years since a Star Trek series has been in production.
