‘Star Trek’ Day to be Celebrated on September 8th

Awards Radar is no stranger to Star Trek. We have covered the latest Star Trek news and announcements and panels. Plus the franchise has been a frequent topic of conversation on the site and on our The ‘Verse! podcast. They have stayed on top of Star Trek lore old and new, most recently finishing their episode by episode coverage of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. It is no wonder we are so excited to take part in the festivities this September 8th, where using a global livestream, Paramount+ will celebrate their third annual Star Trek Day. Back-to-back conversations with the cast and crew from several Trek television series, live performances, announcements and a special tribute to Nichelle Nichols will be some of the activities that will take place during the event.

The celebration will be streamed live from the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles. A red carpet will take place to officially open the event, featuring co-hosts Jackie Cox and Mary Chieffo interviewing Star Trek cast members from past to present.
