Star Trek Trek is a 24-hour journey at very high speed through the entire Star Trek saga sequenced in stardate order.
A cult science fiction series that began in the 1960s and continues to this day, Star Trek counts more than 700 episodes totalling over 550 hours of film. The compression performed on this series is reminiscent of two emerging practices, combining them: binge-watching, which consists of watching multiple episodes of a television programme in rapid succession for a long period of time; and speed watching, which is watching a movie at a slightly accelerated speed. But this operation takes an ironic twist as it attempts to compensate for an impossible viewing duration with extreme compression. It does, however, provide a visual experience different from the familiar one, that could suit an artificial or alien eye very well.
