Star Trek Day Beams In This September
Red Alert. Shields up! Celebrate September 8th with the cast, crew, and creative minds from all corners of the Star Trek Universe. Star Trek Day is warping in!
Get ready to return to the Neutral Zone because Star Trek Day is returning in 2021. Last year’s live-streamed event was the home of the biggest reveals from the Star Trek Universe, and this year is no different. Paramount has confirmed that the event will see new exclusive panels for Star Trek: Prodigy, the new animated series; the new season of Star Trek: Discovery; and even Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. The all-new series featuring Captain Christopher Pike and the crew of the starship Enterprise.
STRANGE NEW WORLDS
Strange New Worlds was a glaring omission from last year’s event, and fans were left frustrated by the overall lack of content. But thankfully, this year, stars Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn, and Ethan Peck will finally peel back the curtain and give us our first look at the new adventures of the U.S.S. Enterprise. What’s more, Paramount also dropped the first logo for the hotly-anticipated new series which you can see below:
But that is just the tip of the iceberg. Hosts Wil Wheaton and Mica Burton will guide us through over two hours of free live-streamed panels and programming that will reunite iconic cast members and creative minds from 10 Star Trek television series. Together, they will gather to celebrate 55 years of Star Trek. But don’t take our word for it. Check out the event’s schedule below:
Star Trek: Prodigy, with series voice cast including Brett Gray and Dee Bradley Baker, along with executive producers Kevin and Dan Hageman and co-executive producer/director, Ben Hibon.
Star Trek: Discovery, with series stars Wilson Cruz, Blu del Barrio, and Ian Alexander, and co-showrunner and executive producer Michelle Paradise.
New Series: Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, with series stars Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn, and Ethan Peck, who will be joined by co-showrunners and executive producers Akiva Goldsman and Henry Alonso Myers.
Star Trek: Lower Decks, with voice cast members Noël Wells and Eugene Cordero alongside series creator, showrunner, and executive producer Mike McMahan.
Star Trek: Picard, with series stars Patrick Stewart and Jeri Ryan, co-showrunner and executive producer Akiva Goldsman, and a special live performance from Isa Briones, singing “Blue Skies,” which was featured in the Picard season one finale.
Roddenberry Legacy Panel, featuring a conversation with Gene Roddenberry’s son and CEO of Roddenberry Entertainment, Rod Roddenberry, alongside Gates McFadden (Star Trek: The Next Generation), LeVar Burton (Star Trek: The Next Generation), and George Takei (Star Trek: The Original Series), as they discuss the Star Trek creator’s indelible impact on science fiction and culture.
The legacy moments will feature the following iconic Star Trek cast members:
Cirroc Lofton from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Anthony Montgomery from Star Trek: Enterprise
Garrett Wang from Star Trek: Voyager
George Takei from Star Trek: The Original Series
LeVar Burton from Star Trek: The Next Generation
And if that isn’t enough to have you reaching from your phaser, Paramount also dropped the breathtaking new poster. Check it out:
TREKKING GOOD FUN
What an awesome lineup. And I cannot wait to get my first look at Strange New Worlds. But with Picard, Lower Decks; Discovery, and Prodigy so heavily featured, Star Trek fans can look forward to a relative feast of content this September. And that is an exciting prospect.
Star Trek Day gets underway on September 8th. We’ll be on hand to cover the event and will bring you the big reveals as they emerge. You’ll never miss a thing with Future Of The Force.
