Taking a Trek: A Guide for Newcomers Wanting to Start Watching Star Trek Pt. 1

Star Trek is without a doubt one of the biggest pop culture icons of all time, with a franchise featuring multiple films and television programs. That said, it's become such a huge beast that it can be daunting to some perhaps leaving them feeling as if they're better off ignoring it all as a result. Fuck that. Star Trek is a beautiful thing that at times featured the best escapes from reality that have ever been created.

But, where the hell do you start is the question at hand so lets just get to it.

I suggest starting off with a handful of episodes from the original show if you can handle the old-school approach. If not, skip ahead to Next Generation. Here is my suggested watch order.
