Star Trek Day has become a hallowed event for Trek fans, especially over the past few years. This year is no exception, presenting us with tantalizing information on upcoming seasons of Trek, including season 3 of Star Trek: Picard, season 2 of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, season 5 of Star Trek: Discovery, the remainder of Star Trek: Lower Decks season 3, and the second half of season 1 of Star Trek: Prodigy!


In this episode of Positively Trek, hosts Dan and Barry (along with Bruce Gibson) break down all of the information from this year’s Star Trek Day livestream event. We also welcome Barry as the new co-host of the show and deep-dive into his fandom and what brings him to Positively Trek!
