Join Paramount+ and fans from around the world for a global live-streamed Star Trek Day celebration on Thursday, Sept. 8 at 12 PM PT / 3 PM ET.

Live from the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, Star Trek Day will feature back-to-back, in-person conversations with cast members from the Star Trek Universe, along with exciting announcements and reveals throughout. The live-streamed celebration and additional information on Star Trek Day programming and initiatives can be found at StarTrek.com/Day. Full details will go live the week of Aug. 22.

On Sept. 8, 1966, Star Trek debuted for the first time on television with "The Man Trap," the pilot episode of Star Trek: The Original Series. On that day, Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry introduced audiences to a world that championed diversity, inclusion, acceptance, and hope. Fifty-six years later, Paramount+ honors this important day and the franchise’s enduring legacy with the service’s third annual Star Trek Day celebration, providing fans with a memorable way to enjoy and celebrate all things Star Trek.

Fans worldwide will be able to live-stream the Star Trek Day celebration for free at StarTrek.com/Day and on YouTube (Paramount+ and Star Trek Official pages), FacebookTwitter, and TikTok. It will also be available to stream for free in the U.S. only on Paramount+’s Twitch page.
