Happy Captain Picard Day

Like First Contact Day (April 5) and Anniversary Day (September 8), today is a special Star Trek holiday. In future history June 16th will be celebrated on the USS Enterprise(s) commanded by Captain Jean Luc Picard. How are you celebrating Picard Day 2012.


Captain Picard Day

The day celebrating Captain Picard was first seen in the 7th season Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Pegasus" (see video below). And apparently 47457.1 translates to June 16th, 2370, making today "Captain Picard Day."

How are you celebrating Picard Day?

#1. Capt. Crunch “I will celebrate by shaving my head”

An action that, with each passing year, takes on less significance! :>)

A Frasier quote! Well played, sir.

Watching ‘The Chase’ in recognition. Happy Captain Picard Day!

June 16, 2012 3:22 pm


Why wouldn’t you watch The Pegasus?

June 16, 2012 3:50 pm

I think I’ll hit my stash of Aldebaran whiskey, and throw on a few minutes of ‘All Good Things.’ I want to hear Q call Picard “You obtuse piece of flotsam!” again for old time’s sake.

@ 9. Harry Ballz

lol, I forgot to place an “I” at the start.

June 16, 2012 5:59 pm

Happy Captain Picard Day, everyone!

Well, Romulus, all I can say to that is, “an i for an i”.

Oh, and don’t forget to cross your “t’s”!

I don’t celebrate Captain Picard Day. I’m Orthodox.

@ 12, because The Pegasus is hardly a Picard-centric episode. And I wanted to watch The Chase.

June 17, 2012 6:49 am

Dude. Captain Picard Day is my BIRTHDAY. The day I figured that out, I literally squealed for a full minute.

James, with it being the day of your DELIVERANCE, small wonder that you would “squeal like a pig!”.

June 17, 2012 10:46 am

Joyeux anniversaire, le capitaine Picard!


June 17, 2012 11:29 pm

Must say that comments thus far are very funny! I, for one, celebrated by barking out some orders, fetching dill weed for the breakfast cook, and quoting Moby Dick.

I got actually married that day :D

June 16th is my birthday as well.
