Star Trek was a popular American science fiction television series of the 1960s, featuring among other characters, Spock, Captain Kirk and Doctor McCoy. A Time Lord, Marnal, going by the human alias Marnal Gate, also sold a script to Star Trek, but unhappy with the changes made, he saw to it that he was not credited for it. (PROSE: The Gallifrey Chronicles)

Star Trek later spawned a long-standing entertainment franchise that included motion pictures and additional TV series lasting into the 21st century. There were many avid fans who were thrilled by the debuts of movies based on the series beginning in the late 1970s. (PROSE: Return of the Living Dad)

Izzy Sinclair, a companion of the Eighth Doctor, watched Star Trek to vicariously escape her unhappy home life. (COMIC: Oblivion) She frequently watched Star Trek: The Next Generation on VHS. (AUDIO: Izzy's Story) Her comment upon entering the TARDIS for the first time was to say, "Not exactly the Starship Enterprise, is it?" (COMIC: Endgame) Her affinity for Star Trek — as well as her use of it to escape her home life — was something she shared with Destrii. Indeed, when the two first met, they bonded over Sulu's dialogue from the episode, Spock's Brain. (COMIC: Ophidius)

The Star Trek franchise faded out of public consciousness within a few centuries. 26th century native Bernice Summerfield thought The Next Generation was a documentary when she first saw it. (PROSE: The Left-Handed Hummingbird) 51st century native Jack Harkness was unfamiliar with the name "Spock". (TV: The Empty Child / The Doctor Dances)

"Spock's Brain" was an episode of Star Trek that both Izzy Sinclair and Destrii had seen. Destrii even went so far as to call it her "favourite".

(COMIC: Ophidius)
