How to Celebrate Star Trek Day

Star Trek Day

 Gene Roddenberry created an optimistic vision of our future, a vision that has inspired countless people over the years. Star Trek Day celebrates that vision. The man who gave us all a glimpse into the amazing possibilities of our future.

History To modern audiences, the original Star Trek series can seem outdated. Even incredibly racist when viewed through a modern lens. But this overlooks the incredible strides that were made during the show’s production and how unthinkable some of its elements were at the time. Consider if you will, Lieutenant Pavel Andreievich Chekov—a Russian crewmember serving on board an American starship. In the days of Cold War-era anti-Communism, this concept was inconceivable. But Gene Roddenberry dreamed of a day when it would be possible.

 There was Lieutenant Uhura, a female officer on the deck of a naval vessel, but also an African-American woman. Her position as fourth in command of the USS Enterprise was not undermined by her position as a glorified telephone operator.

 Star Trek envisions a future where our nationalities no longer matter. Yet each of us can be proud of our heritage. We are all citizens of the same universe, and that is all that matters at the end of the day.

How to Celebrate Star Trek Day

 To celebrate this Day, you could watch the original series. The first episode can be quite spooky, so watch it with care. It’s also worth noting that at this point in the series. Vulcans aren’t known for their lack of emotion, so there’s a shock for those who haven’t seen it before. Put together some themed snacks and pull out your old uniforms; there’s no better way to get into the spirit of Star Trek Day!
