This year’s Star Trek Day celebrates 55 years of the science fiction franchise. And it hasn’t been 55 years of just one show or movie that results in the celebration. But more so 55 years of multiple TV series, feature films numbering in the double digits and so much more. And, as you’ll hear on this episode of the Comic Years Podcast, not every year has been good for the franchise. Yet it endures and returns regularly, stronger than ever. And currently, we’re in a state of glorious Star Trek content coming at us from every which way. So for this year’s Star Trek Day, I’m joined by Joshua M. Patton and Jessica Kanzler to deep dive into why we love this franchise so much. Join us on this Star Trek Day 2021 podcast. 

How Star Trek Speaks To Each And Every One Of Us

This Star Trek Day 2021 podcast episode begins with us each discussing what about this space drama appeals to each of us. While it’s the hopeful optimism of an idealistic future that drew us all into Star Trek, we stayed for how it continuously reinvented itself over the years. Jessica even discusses how much of her experience with Star Trek: The Next Generation is very much comfort viewing for her. While Joshua discusses how The Original Series is his Trek. 

I go a little deep into why my favourite Star Trek is Deep Space Nine and very much how it was ahead of its time. So much of DS9 also returns in the new invigoration of the franchise in Star Trek: Discovery.
