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. Find out more below, plus see how some fans are celebrating Picard Day 2011.
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."
