“This is the Trek equivalent of the Marvel universe right now, where the story happening in the Marvel movies all connect up, and also spill over and connect up with the TV shows like Agents of SHIELD or Agent Carter or Daredevil. It’s all woven together, events happening simultaneously in lots of different forms (like the events at the end of Captain America 2: Winter Soldier spilling over into the end of season 1 of Agents of SHIELD. You see?) It’s just like that, but for Star Trek.”

Panelteer Peter writes about the expansive Star Trek universe in novels over at our sister site, Book Riot.
