Star Trek Expanded Universe's point of view (POV) is that of a character inside the fictional Star Trek universe. Articles about individuals, starships, planet, etc should be written as if they existed.
- The USS Starship was a Federation vessel from the 23rd century. (Star Trek: Fan Fiction)
- The USS Starship is a Federation vessel from Star Trek: Fan Fiction
Given that Star Trek spans from the distant past to the far future in most cases articles should be written in past tense. Try to view yourself as a historian looking back at this events at the end of time.
Real world articlesEdit
Articles about the Star Trek franchise and production (eg. fan fiction, fan films, fan comics, actors, etc.), which are not part of the Star Trek universe are referred to as real world articles since they exist in the "real world".
In terms of tense use whichever is the most appropriate;
- DeForest Kelley was an American born actor well known for his role as Leonard "Bones" McCoy...
