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?

I will celebrate by shaving my head

Wouldn’t you agree, Number One?

I’ll be celebrating it with soms tea, earl grey, hot!

#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.

Miss Will Riker

Thank you, Vultan!

I’m glad SOMEBODY got it!

#6 “Miss Will Riker”

What, did Number One get a sex change??

How about we all have a Tea. Earl Grey. Hot!

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


Why wouldn’t you watch The Pegasus?

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.

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”!

Captain Picard Day, Make it So.

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.

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!”.

Joyeux anniversaire, le capitaine Picard!


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.
