23 Weeks of New Trek | Lower Decks ST Day Panel

The 23 Weeks of Star Trek dropped a fun present in our laps with the first coordinated, multimedia observance of STAR TREK DAY! 

September 8th has always been Star Trek's birthday, but this year was different. Twenty four straight hours of Star Trek love, in what I hope is only a taste of future Star Trek Days to come.

Rock like Spock with your own Vulcan Earbuds!

There was a lot to enjoy starting with a marathon of curated episodes from every show. Midday brought us live panels celebrating every Star Trek series (almost, sorry TAS). 

There were exclusive memorabilia drops, and trailers for Lower Decks & Discovery Season three

There was even a Star Trek Day Pub Quiz to end the event with a fun trivia game. Really, it was one of the single best days ever to be a Star Trek fan.

But, if there were some sort of media content award for "Most Fun" it would have to go to the team for STAR TREK: Lower Decks! They really went above and beyond. 

Lower decks creator Mike McMahan and his cast took to the screens for their panel and brought their unrestrained love for each other and their show with them. 

Here's a tip - find someone that loves you as much as that cast loves their show, and you'll be happy all your life.

They brought with them a trailer for the back half of season one that (if you don't mind spoilers) is just amazing.

And as if that wasn't enough, Titmouse, Inc - the company that produces the animation for Lower Decks - even provided a fun, small coloring book specifically for Star Trek Day (which you can find here)

If you missed it, don't worry. 

All the panels, trailers, and bonus content from Star Trek Day can be found at Star Trek Dot Com, and at the CBS All Access YouTube channel. 

I definitely recommend watching the Lower Decks panel and mid-season trailer. They're both too much fun!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a coloring book to tend to. Au revoir.
