Must read

Star Trek Day 2022 has arrived and it’s bringing with it some big news for Star Trek's biggest shows. Alongside revealing the premiere date and a new teaser for the third and final season of Star Trek: Picard, we were also treated to announcements for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Lower Decks, and Star Trek: Prodigy.

To ensure you don't miss any of the big news from Star Trek Day 2022, we've gathered all the details, trailers, and images below.

Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Premiere Date and Teaser Revealed

Paramount+ revealed that the third and final season of Star Trek: Picard will premiere on Thursday, February 16, 2023. This final season will consist of 10 episodes and new episodes will debut each Thursday.

Alongside the premiere date, a brief teaser for Season 3 was shared and it gave us a new glimpse at the returning crew members of Star Trek: The Next Generation, including Gates McFadden's Dr. Beverly Crusher, Jonathan Frakes' Commander William Riker, LeVar Burton's Geordi La Forge, Michael Dorn's Worf, and Marina Sirtis' Deanna Troi.

The teaser also gave fans a first look at the U.S.S. Titan – the starship that will serve our heroes as they venture out on one final mission – and it ended with Commander Seven of Nine using Picard's famous line of "Engage."

We are hoping for big things from Season 3 of Star Trek: Picard, as we were let down with Season 2. In our review, we said it was a "disappointing entry in the legendary captain’s journey, and possibly the worst season of Star Trek ever."

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Season 2 Clip Revealed, Carol Kane to Join the Cast

While fans may have to wait until 2023 for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds to return, Paramount+ helped make that wait a bit easier by revealing a new clip from Season 2 and sharing that Carol Kane will be joining the cast.

This first glimpse of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds' second season features Melissa Navia's Lt. Erica Ortegas getting ready to go on a rare away mission. She was so excited she even got a fancy hat to go with her outfit. She meets up with Anson Mount's Captain Pike, Christina Chong's Lt. La'An Noonien-Singh, Babs Olosukomun's Dr. M'Benga, and Ethan Peck as Science Officer Spock, to discuss what's to come.

As for Kane, the Emmy Award-winning actress will be joining the cast in a recurring role as Pelia.

"Highly educated and intelligent, this engineer suffers no fools," Pelia's official description reads. "Pelia solves problems calmly and brusquely, thanks to her many years of experience."

Kane's impressive career includes such films and TV shows as Hester Street, Taxi, Dog Day Afternoon, Annie Hall, The Princess Bride, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and more.

We gave Star Trek: Strange New World's first season a rare 10/10. In our review, we said that it "recaptures the joy of classic Trek in a way that is both old-school and brand-new.

"Captain Burnham and the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery uncover a mystery that sends them on an epic adventure across the galaxy to find an ancient power whose very existence has been deliberately hidden for centuries," the official description reads. "But there are others on the hunt as well… dangerous foes who are desperate to claim the prize for themselves and will stop at nothing to get it."

While it wasn't shown, Star Trek: Lower Decks will also be taking the crew to Deep Space Nine alongside having them visit Sisko's Creole Kitchen – the New Orleans restaurant that was owned by Captain Benjamin Sisko's father, Joseph.

Star Trek: Prodigy's First Season Will Return in October, First-Look Clip Revealed

The first season of Star Trek: Prodigy, Paramount+'s original animated kids' series, will be returning from its mid-season break on Thursday, October 27. The premiere date announcement was accompanied by a first look clip that features the "U.S.S. Protostar crew and beloved character Murf as he completes his 'metamurfosis.'"

It was also confirmed that Billy Campbell, the actor who starred in Star Trek: The Next Generation as Thadiun Okona, will join the cast of Star Trek: Prodigy in a recurring role. He will be part of a group of recurring actors that include Commander Tysess' Daveed Diggs, Ensign Asencia's Jameela Jamil, Doctor Noum's Jason Alexander, and Captain Chakotay's Robert Beltran.

“From early on in the writers' room, we knew we wanted Captain Thadiun Okona to return and become a questionable guide to our impressionable crew,” said executive producers Kevin and Dan Hageman. “It was so much fun to not only explore where Okona’s outrageous life has taken him in his later years, but to also work with Billy Cambell who effortlessly fell back into the role of Okona like he had never left.”

In the remaining episodes of Star Trek: Prodigy's first season, the crew of the U.S.S. Protostar head towards Starfleet while harboring a "weapon designed to tear the United Federation of Planets apart. To make matters worst, the real Vice Admiral Janeway is on a manhunt for the Protostar, eager to uncover what happened to her missing former First Officer Chakotay. With these two ships on a collision course and destruction on the horizon, the fate of the Alpha Quadrant hangs in the balance."
