Origin Of Steampunk

The term “Steampunk” may have been coined by science fiction author K. W. Jeter in the spring of 1987 but the actual origins of the genre have remained obscure and a matter of some debate in fandom … until now.

They Boldly Went…To Victorian England

The crew of the Enterprise never could resist a bit of time travel and it’s not surprising that they’d eventually end up in Victorian England or that they’d be the root cause of Steampunk. 😉

We’re just all very lucky that Retronaut unearthed these images of Capt. Kirk and crew by Rabbit Tooth. Otherwise, the true origin of Steampunk would still be lost to history.
