Trekkies, it’s time to celebrate! Star Trek Day is perfect for binging Star Trek TV shows and movies and, of course, collecting new merch.
What is Stark Trek Day? It celebrates the debut of Star Trek: The Original Series, which premiered on Sept. 8, 1966. This year’s Star Trek Day will be extra special, as it also marks the 50th anniversary of the animated franchise.
To celebrate, Paramount+ announced a slate of Star Trek Day programming hosted by Star Trek: Lower Decks Commander Jack Ransom and Jerry O’Connell. The special content includes a tribute to 50 years of Star Trek animation, and an exclusive clip of the upcoming season of Star Trek: Lower Decks.

What else is happening for Star Trek Day? Kid Cudi will be collaborating with the franchise on the “Boldy Be” campaign, the rapper announced Friday. The collaboration will include music, gaming and clothing.
“I grew up watching Star Trek with my dad who is single handedly responsible for turning me into a fan,” Cudi said in a statement. “The most important thing to me is to be as authentic as possible. Star Trek’s mission has always been about having a hopeful future and when I was first approached about this project it was the perfect marriage of all the things I believe in – being brave and a hero by doing what’s right and fighting for freedom. I can’t wait to share my love of this incredible franchise with the world.”
