Today in addition to being thankful for our friends and family, Trek fans can also give thanks for some recent good news in the world of Star Trek. We finally have movement on the next Star Trek film, which goes into production in two months and has an actual release date: May 17, 2013. We also have recently learned that Star Trek: The Next Generation is going to be released in HD on Blu-ray, starting with a sample pack in early 2012. And of course there are new Trek books, new Trek comics and lots of Trek stuff to keep us occupied. At 45 years old, the Trek franchise is still giving us more.
The future history of Star Trek introduced us to many new holidays, like the Federation’s First Contact Day, the Klingon Day of Honor and the Bajoran Gratitude Festival. Although Thanksgiving is an American holiday, the spirit of giving thanks in appreciation for what we are blessed with is one that fits well with Star Trek. Star Trek has always celebrated different cultures coming together and working for a better future, something that is at the core of Gene Roddenberry’s vision. (Source: TrekMovie)
