    I am in the same situation but I think I can help you. I know a whole bunch about Star Wars because Star Wars is awesome but I don't know as much about Star Trek. I did watch the Star Trek and Star Trek into darkness so that's a little helpful, but Star Trek is basically a trouble making captain(Captain Kirk) get chosen to pilot a famous ship(The Enterprise) and he tries to live up to his father with the help of Spock while also trying to save the universe from certain destruction with a new enemy each time. So this is kind of like Star Wars in someway depending on your view. It might help to watch 2009's Star Trek movie with Chris Pine and 2013's Star Trek into Darkness that might help you. I hope that helped :D

    This is what I started with: The main story of Star Trek is about a crew aboard a star ship called USS Enterprise. Like a police force the travel through the galaxy, scanning for criminals.

    Space, the final frontier. A ship known as the Enterprise is tasked with exploring uncharted space territory. Also, if he's wearin' red he's already dead!

    I need something like how I have my Star Wars paragraph started: The story of Star Wars is based around a power that holds the galaxy together and gives life to the living; this power is called the Force. Some people are gifted with the power of the Force. But these people became divided, Jedi and Sith. The Jedi only use their power to help the weak and lame. They believe that all life has meaning. The Sith are known for being masters of deception, they feed on anger, revenge, and rage to gain more power. They believe that only the strong should live and the week should worship the strong or die.

    Okay I gotchuuuuuuuuuuuuu. The Alliance is a force of seemingly good, however good could be defined. They protect innocent planets and keep a seemingly peace in the universe. Meanwhile the Klingon is a race of warriors bred from birth to kill all who are considered inferior and strongly believe in the survival of the fittest

    Star Trek is about various different crews aboard different Starships exploring the galaxy and carrying out missions. They aren't apart of the "Alliance" they're apart of the "Federation" fully known as the "Federation of Planets".

    There are multiple different Star Trek franchises: Star Trek (The Original Series) - Which I've seen a handful of episodes. Star Trek: The Next Generation - Which I've completely seen. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - Which I've nearly completed. Star Trek: Voyager - Which I haven't seen yet. and Star Trek: Enterprise - The latest franchise. Then the remake movies which don't really count as a Star Trek show franchise.

    I believe the Federation are called the 'Alliance' here and there, but they are commonly referred to as the Federation.

    Wait... hold on, the Federation are a multi-racial group of people that work for the humans, so yeah you're probably right about them referring to themselves as the 'Alliance'.

    I've always referred to them as the Alliance, guess we'll mark it up as a matter of preference. also, I'd go with a more recent one.

    There's two type of crew. It's the red's, then there's other colors. I'm kidding of course. From what I can recall no not really. They have nicknames for each other but that's about it.

    No, the "name" that they would reference themselves as would be like, "The crew of the Starship Enterprise" if anything.

    Their mission is to explore where no man has gone before, just like back when we built ships to sail across the sea, we traveled to various locations, to explore where no man has gone before. So... that's really it.

    That's never completely covered. Sadly, it's really left up to the view to fully guess what it is trying to accomplish but in the front it's basically to travel the universe and keep the peace. Anyways I've gotta go eat so I'll be right back to help.

    That generally is their mission on why they send Starships out, to explore and gain more territory. Again I agree with @tbl

    The huge thing about Star Trek is that it just focuses on various crews, it doesn't take the huge account of the overall Federation. Most of the franchises focus on Starship crews exploring the galaxy and doing various things, except for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager, Voyager is the story about the crew trying to return back to Earth after they got transported far away, in Deep Space Nine it focuses on a Space Station.

    Ok so this is what I have so far: "The main story of Star Trek is about a crew and there many adventures aboard a star ship called USS Enterprise. The crew is a part of alliance Federation of planets. The Federation is a force of seemingly good, however good could be defined. They protect innocent planets and keep a seemingly peace in the universe.

    If you want information of the Federation itself you'll on get very little and it's pretty brow raising at how little is actually known about the supposed peace keepers. One of the Star Trek movies dives a little more into it showing that the Alliance is willing to do almost anything to preserve peace because the end outweighs the mean of reaching it.

    Hmmm, although it seems nice, there are errors, for instance: "about a crew and *their* many adventures aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise, which is a Starship to explore the galaxy in search of new life and civilizations." Also, "The crew is *apart* of an alliance of races, they are apart of the Federation, a multi-racial space force that's destined to explore the galaxy." I would remove "The Federation is a force of seemingly good, however good could be defined." In continuation, "They have made alliances with many races in which they help to protect, along with races that have not yet reached the point of being able to defend themselves against others that may be willing to destroy them, The Federation tries to maintain peace throughout their quadrant to the best of their ability while continuing to explore the galaxy." However, the Klingons are only enemies of the Federation back during the time of Captain Kirk, from the point of Captain Picard onwards, the Klingons were allied to the Federation. In addition, Klingons aren't simply born just to be warriors and fight, that's like the Jem'Hadar which are solely bred to fight for the Founders, this is all mentioned and introduced through Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Anyhow, the Klingons are a race of warriors, who fight with what they consider 'honor' the only Klingon that really has true honor and keeps it is 'Commander Worf' who serves apart of the Federation, he appears in The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine. Although the Klingons do have honor, not all of them are really honorable. Anyhow, that's a bit more of additional explanation.
