Star Trek Day 2023
CELEBRATE ALL THINGS STAR TREK
This weekend is always a bittersweet occasion as kids are back to school and friends and family gather for one last taste of summer, even though technically there are nearly three weeks left before autumn. But don’t be sad because after the unofficial close of summertime there’s still one more hot date to mark on your calendar: Star Trek Day!
Formally created back in 2020 to salute NBC’s pioneering sci-fi TV series’ first broadcast episode “The Man Trap” on September 8, 1966, “Star Trek” Day is a time of remembrance for creator Gene Roddenberry’s “Wagon Train To The Stars” that presented Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) , Spock (Leonard Nimoy) Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy (DeForest Kelley), Nyota Uhura (Nichelle Nichols) and the intrepid crew as they crisscrossed the galaxy aboard the starship U.S.S. Enterprise.
