The original Star Trek series premiered in 1966. This year celebrates its 55th anniversary and the long-running franchise is holding a very special event! While the original series only lasted for three seasons, the show has had several spinoffs including TV shows, movies, and books. It still has a very dedicated fan base.

Cast members from the series will come together for a live stream event. The event will be hosted by Wil Wheaton, who appeared on Star Trek: The Next Generation. He will be joined by the daughter of LeVar Burton, who was also on the series, Mica Burton. There will also be a live orchestra performance composed by Jeff Russo, who does music for the current Star Trek series.
