A new news article has been published at TrekToday:
Did you know? Star Trek turns 55 this year, and to coincide with the anniversary of Trek first premiering on televisions across the United States,...
It could've been ideal timing to launch "Strange New Worlds" on that day or maybe season 2 of PICARD.
That might've been the plan to shoot for, but pandemic.
Trailer for Star trek Day:
The nostalgia is strong in the trailer. Love it!
I'm a little surprised not to see the animated series title card included at the end, with all the nods that Lower Decks gives it.
Was thinking the exact same thing….!
Just sounds like an excuse to show some new trailers. Probably get so air dates as well.
And that’s a bad thing why?
They did the same thing last year.
They also did something on First Contact Day
Yeah, like... that's a problem? Oh no, we're getting new trailers? XD
They should take a page out of Rick & Morty's book and just release the first full episode of Strange New Worlds for viewers of the livestream. "Here's the first episode guys! See episode 2 in six months or so..."
Don't tell us. Just do it, and have this site scramble to finally put up a new forum and all that.
This is TAS-erasure and I don't like it. Otherwise, I love the trailer though.
I don't get it. Are Jerry Seinfeld and Kathy Kinney going to be involved? I know he's a Superman fan, but I don't recall his connection to Star Trek. Jason Alexander would make more sense.
He's going to be on stage at a seedy bar on Rigel XII saying "Whaaat is the deal with these Klingons? First they're smooth, and then they have ridges. Are they a bag of potato chips? What's next, Cool Ranch Klingons? And what's with the two penises? He's a double-dipper. He dipped, and he dipped again."
But is he still Master of his Quadrant?
Hopefully we'll at least get a ST:SNW trailer/promo on 9/8/21.
This airs 1.30-4am UK time.
The great thing is when my alarm goes off that morning (workday, wah) they'll be a tonne of photos, videos and info to look at!!
I'll be traveling, but hopefully we get trailers to SNW and another trailer to Picard.
I like that they are making Star Trek Day a thing. It's a day worth celebrating, even though I wish there was a way to convince Jolene Blalock to say a few words or bring back Avery Brooks in some capacity. I want to see if Jolene has any new thoughts on Enterprise 20 years after the series started.
Speaking of which, I'm a little surprised they don't have a specific 20 year anniversary panel celebrating Enterprise. I mean Scott Bakula is done with NCIS NO and that was a CBS show. Get the cast together minus Jolene (Or if they do get Jolene, great) and talk some ENT. Maybe even announce news that episodes like Borderland, Cold Station 12, and The Augments or The Forge, Awakening, and Kir'shara will be turned into Made for TV movies and added as extras to the P+ streaming service.
Ooo, it's a Wednesday. New comics AND Star Trek videos (plus the previous nights Supergirl, Stargirl and What If?). Geeky, geeky day.
On a similar note, has anyone heard what the premier date is for the History Channel program called 'The Center Seat'? I've been checking online for weeks, and haven't found any information that's newer than June. It was supposed to have been completed in time to air around the time of the 55th Anniversary.
