For most of us, Star Trek is not just a TV show or a set of movies. These epic adventure stories are a nerd cult. The story took us to a place where no one has taken before, but yet everybody had dreamed about — Space (check space wallpapers). With epic battleships, legendary characters, and scores of inter-galactic species (not to mention iron-clad principles) Star Trek has been winning our hearts since the mid 60s.
Based on the immense love that we have for this series (and movie), we have collected some of the best HD and 4K Star Trek wallpapers for you.
Let’s get started.
1. Calling the USS Discovery
Talk about Star Trek and the first image that springs to the mind are its legendary ships. These mighty Starfleet vehicles, be it the USS Discovery or the USS Enterprise, were pretty advanced ships that could traverse the vast galaxies in the blink of an eye.
Interestingly, the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) was one of the most celebrated starships of her time.
2. Hello, Starfleet!
Though the Starfleet insignia has changed a lot over the years, the delta shape is one of the most iconic ones that has come to represent the good people of the USS Enterprise.
Which one do you like the most?
3. Tales of Spock and Captain Pike
A burst of colors, a glimpse of space and our all-time favorite Spock and Captain Kirk. What more could one ask for? Now that they are on the same frame, who do you love more? Spock with his Vulcan logic, or Captain Kirk and his humane side?
4. The Vulcan Greeting
Without Spock, would there be a Star Trek? It’s said that the Vulcan greeting was inspired by the Hebrew letter Shin. That’s interesting.
On a completely different note, if you love the bright tone of orange (and you are a Spock fan), you’ll certainly love this image for its simplicity and minimalism.
5. Eliminate the Impossible
Leonard Nimoy, the legend who played Spock (and also the other way around) was to be dropped from the original Star Trek show. The network executives weren’t comfortable with the character’s looks. Imagine if he didn’t play spot. The show surely would have taken a different direction.
Did you know that Spock’s full name is actually S’chn T’gai Spock? Now, you do.
6. Change Is the Essential Process of All Existence
If you love plain and white wallpapers, I am sure you’ll love this image. With the modern stars framed in the shape of the Starfleet’s insignia, this image speaks volumes. And the vivid colors are the cherry on top.
7. The Future
Though the USS Enterprise served valiantly in many epic adventures and battles, this battleship was destroyed over the Genesis Planet in 2285 by Captain Kirk? This epic event happened in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.
8. The United Federation of Planets
Warp Speed or Warp Drive were commonly used expressions to denote the extraordinary faster-than-light speed at which the Starfleet ships could travel. However, there are a few variations to these as well. For instance, Space Warp Generator, Hyperdrive, Lightspeed, Star Drive drive have been used to indicate the nature of this speed.
9. The Trouble with Tribbles
Love wallpapers with a black background? This is the perfect one for the Star Trek fan in you. If you look at it, it has all the important features — the Delta-shaped insignia, the USS Enterprise, and the iconic eyes of the Vulcan science officer.
10. Old School
It never hurts to go back a couple of years and take a deep dive into the show that started this massive Star Trek fandom.
So, here goes a question — who’s better? Zachary Quinto’s Spock or Leonard Nimoy’s Spock? You know where the comments section is (*wink wink*).
11. He’s so … Human
Over the years, many of Spock’s dialogues have been immortalized. The ones such as “Live Long and Prosper” and “Fascinating” may have achieved a cult status. Which of these is your favorite?
Also, did you know that though Spock took pride in being a Vulcan, he is only half Vulcan? His mother is a human named Amanda Grayson.
12. Course Heading, Captain
What’s the best thing you love about the Star Trek reboot? For me, it’s the almost life-like graphics. All you need to do is binge on a couple of the movies, and you’ll be left wishing for a starship for yourself! Yep, it’s that crazy.
13. At Warp Speed
If you have a phone with an AMOLED display, this is one of the best images for the Star Trek fan. The black portion will not help save battery but will help be soothing to your eyes.
Beam Me Up, Scotty!
There can never be enough said about Star Trek – be it the principles or the loyalty among the Starfleet members, or the hair-raising space adventures. The good news is that there have been talks about a sequel hitting the floors soon.
Can’t wait, can we?
