This question already has an answer here:

When looking up tags for Star Trek, I've found the following:






(Newly created by myself.)

One thing I see missing though, as long as we have these sub-category tags, is a tag for questions pertaining to the new timeline created by the 2009 movie. How should we tag this?

A couple ideas:

(For the release of the movie that started it all.)
(For J.J. Abrams.)
(Suggested by @TonyMeyer.)

Absolutely not J.J. Abrams. Assuming there does end up being more than two movies in the rebooted series, naming the tag after the director of the first (and most likely second) movie doesn't really make any sense.

Looking forward, 2009 seems rather obscure as well. In 2015, when the third movie comes out, do people really want to remember what year the first one was?

I don't see much need for any specific tag right now. Remember that tags are all about following distinct sets of questions. Are there really people interested in following questions about the single (at this point, plus pre-production sequel) movie and not any other Trek?

If there is, I would suggest .

  • I may have blundered in my answer somewhat. Are the 4 votes for the "we don't need a tag now" part, the "definitely not JJ/2009" part, or the "star-trek-reboot" part? – Tony Meyer Nov 8 '11 at 7:45

I think since none of the other Star Trek movies have their own tags, we would leave it alone. Also, I doubt there will be confusion as it is the only movie named just Star Trek. All the others have sub titles like The Motion Picture, Nemesis, Wrath of Kahn, etc.

  • I think one reason the other movies don't have their own tags is because each could be tagged for the TV series represented in the movie. In the case of ST2k9, there is no TV series to lump it together with. Also, I think it does create enough of a special case that it and its successors should have their own tag. If we simply leave them under a generic star-trek category, we're essentially saying the other more specific tags are superfluous as well. – Iszi Nov 6 '11 at 2:02

None of the other movie arcs are tagged in a special manner: there is no or tag. If they're about a movie, they should be tagged with the movie name or just tagged . That is, if Star Trek needs to be broken out from general questions, they should all be broken out:

Speculating about a general tag for a possible TV series isn't really appropriate: there's zero evidence that such a TV series is even being considered, much less that we're going to have questions about it. If a new series comes out, we can tag questions about it with the series name, whatever it happens to be.

    I'm not sure I totally agree with (re)tagging all of the questions per each individual movie. The only reason I'm asking about ST2k9 is because I believe its timeline and canon deviates far enough from the rest of the Star Trek universe to warrant a category of its own (which would also include any sequels or TV series made from it). – Iszi Nov 7 '11 at 4:14

    @Iszi None of the other movie arcs are tagged in a special manner: there is no star-trek-tng-movies or star-trek-tos-movies tag. If they're about a movie, they should be tagged with the movie name or just tagged star-trek. Speculating about a general tag for a possible TV series isn't really appropriate: there's zero evidence that such a TV series is even being considered, much less that we're going to have questions about it. If a new series comes out, we can tag questions about it with the series name, whatever it happens to be. – user366 Nov 7 '11 at 6:30
  • If there are movie-specific tags, then I think this is a good set. However, is there really any need to have the movie-specific tags as well as the general star-trek? Are there really (e.g.) fans of STII and STVI who want to avoid questions about ST:TMP and ST:X? – Tony Meyer Nov 8 '11 at 7:48
  • @TonyMeyer This question is working under the premise that people do want to break them out. If we are going to break them out, we don't need to invent a franchise tag for Star Trek (2009): it should just be tagged with the movie name. – user366 Nov 8 '11 at 18:52
