“Beam me up, Scotty.”
The third annual Star Trek Day is set to kick off next month at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, bringing with it a number of major announcements, panels, and unique programming honoring the legendary science-fiction franchise as well as late cast member Nichelle Nichols.
