Star Trek Day was a celebration of all things Star Trek on the shows 54th Anniversary.
It was an event that kept on giving. As well as some information on upcoming shows including Star Trek: Strange New Worlds it also brought back former cast members who gave an insight into what it was like during filming and the formation of the Star Trek family. It was an emotional, nostalgic look back at the franchise we all love.
So, below are links to some of my highlights from Star Trek Day 2020. Let me know your highlights in the comments below.
