Paramount had quite a lot to share with fans during their Star Trek Day livestream.

They've published a summary on StarTrek.com but we'll take a look at new footage and major news.

Star Trek Day

September 8 is Star Trek Day and there will be a livestreamed special event commencing locally on September 9 at 3 a.m. AEST.

Their schedule covers all of the current TV shows and a tribute to Nichelle Nichols. No mention of the stuck in development hell Star Trek film or other new series previously announced to be in development like Starfleet Academy.

Kirk on Kirk

After saying "Fuck Star Wars. But Not Mark Hamill," and that Gene Roddenberry would be "turning in his grave" at some of the new Star Trek series, William Shatner had kinder words for Paul Wesley who now plays Kirk in Strange New Worlds.

He's young and handsome and thin and rich.

But Not As We Know Him

When Paul Wesley was announced to have joined the season two cast of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, we remarked that the accompanying promotional image didn't have much of a Kirk vibe.

Following his appearance as Kirk in Strange New Worlds' first season finale, Star Trek fan site Red Shirts Always Die echoed our sentiment.

Strange New Fantasy

Despite our reservations following the second episode of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, we returned for a third.

Which sat well with us except for the science.

Star Trek Politics

George Takei and The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine writer Robert Hewitt Wolfe have rejected a Fox claim that:

Star Trek writers take Starship Enterprise where it's never gone before - woke politics

Even our entertainment is awash in bitter partisanship

Strange New Directive

While we were relieved that Strange New Worlds' pilot episode felt like a return to real Star Trek, it may have been short-lived.

The second is an improvement in that Uhura gets over her pilot episode fangirl giddiness but unfortunately we see The Prime Directive retconned and also some weak writing.

Strange New Opening

Paramount have released the opening titles for upcoming new series, Strange New Worlds.

While we haven't been impressed by all of the teasers, the title sequence is nicely done.
