The Dossiers were a section of the 2009 Star Trek movie website (, which have subsequently been lost as the site has been updated to promote the next Star Trek film, Star Trek Into Darkness. They provided brief introductions to the key characters, locations, starships, and institutions of Star Trek, including details about those subjects which at the time were completely new information, and indeed some facts which remain unique to the dossiers. There were sixteen dossiers in total, which also offered the image as a downloadable wallpaper, without the text.
