Star Trek: a history through the stars – a fun infographic

May 20th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Sometime we see something and feel the need to share… this is one of those times.

J.J Abrams has offered his second Star Trek instalment and the 12th cinematic addition in a long loved sci-fi franchise. Star Trek: Into Darkness has received critical acclaim in its first couple of weeks on the silver screen, and has taken £8.4 milllion in the first six days alone. Not only has it shot up to the top of the UK box office chart, but the film has also reignited Trekkie fever.

To celebrate, online casino website has created an infographic to share the strangest and most interesting facts from the franchise’s past. So set your phasers to the appropriate adjustment and prepare to be stunned.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
