Provides datasets related to the Star Trek fictional universe and functions for working with the data. The package also provides access to real world datasets based on the televised series and other related licensed media productions. It interfaces with the Star Trek API (STAPI) (< http://stapi.co/>), Memory Alpha (< http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/>), and Memory Beta (< http://memory-beta.wikia.com/>) to retrieve data, metadata and other information relating to Star Trek. It also contains several local datasets covering a variety of topics. The package also provides functions for working with data from other Star Trek-related R data packages containing larger datasets not stored in 'rtrek'.
rtrek package provides datasets related to the Star Trek fictional universe and functions to assist with the data. It interfaces with Wikipedia, STAPI, Memory Alpha and Memory Beta to retrieve data, metadata and other information relating to Star Trek. It also contains local sample datasets covering a variety of topics such as Star Trek universe species data, geopolitical data, and summary datasets resulting from text mining analyses of Star Trek novels. The package also provides functions for working with data from other Star Trek-related R data packages containing larger datasets not stored in
Note: This package is in beta (and not just the quadrant). Breaking changes may occur.

Install the development version of
rtrek from GitHub with:
Use the Star Trek API (STAPI) to obtain information on the whereabouts and whenabouts of the infamous character, Q. Specifically, retrieve data on his appearances and the stardates when he shows up. The first API call does a lightweight, unobtrusive check to see how many pages of potential search results exist for characters in the database. There are a lot of characters. The second call grabs only page two results. The third call uses the universal/unique ID
uid to retrieve data on Q. Think of these three successive uses of
stapi as safe mode, search mode and extraction mode.
