CBS has posted free replays of Tuesday’s Star Trek Day panels featuring Patrick Stewart, Scott Bakula, George Takei and other cast members.
In honor or Star Trek Day on Tuesday September 8, 2020, CBS All Access sponsored live panel discussions featuring Star Trek stars and creators.
Below is the Picard and The Next Generation Panel where Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard), Jonathan Frakes (William T. Riker), and host Wil Wheaton (Wesley Crusher) reunited to reminisce about TNG and discuss the cultural significance of Star Trek. The trio also covers the impact of reuniting for Star Trek: Picard and more.
The original Star Trek premiered on September 8, 1966 and to celebrate its 54th anniversary, CBS All Access held an all-day celebration featuring cast members from the original series and its seven spinoffs.

About Star Trek: Picard (from Wikipedia)
Star Trek: Picard is an American web television series created for CBS All Access by Kirsten Beyer, Akiva Goldsman, Michael Chabon and Alex Kurtzman. It is the eighth series in the Star Trek franchise and centers on the character Jean-Luc Picard. Set at the end of the 24th century, 20 years after the events of Star Trek: Nemesis (2002), the storyline focuses on the impact of the destruction of the android Commander Data, which occurred in the climax of that film, as well as the destruction of the planet Romulus, which occurred in the 2009 film Star Trek.
Patrick Stewart is the executive producer of the series and stars as Picard, reprising his role from Star Trek: The Next Generation as well as other Star Trek media. Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Evan Evagora, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway, and Isa Briones also star. Several actors from previous Star Trek series also reprise their roles, including Brent Spiner, Jeri Ryan, Marina Sirtis, and Jonathan Frakes.
