Jeri Ryan and other Star Trek stars share emotional message to fans in video 1

The Star Trek franchise continues to be a source of hope and inspiration amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a new video released by CBS All Access on Wednesday, cast members of Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard come together to share an inspiring message with fans all over the world.

Featuring Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine), Sonequa Martin-Green (Michael Burnham), Jonathan Frakes (William T. Riker), Brent Spiner (Data), Michelle Hurd (Raffi Musiker), Marina Sirtis (Deanna Trois), Wilson Cruz (Hugh Culber), Isa Briones (Dahj/Soji), and Jonathan Del Arco (Hugh), the video is a reminder that no one is really alone during this crisis.

“This is a tough time for everybody. Times like this can seem overwhelming. These are stressful times. But I want you to know, that you are not alone. We’re all connected,” the franchise stars say jointly in the 42-second clip. “We can still laugh and smile and share moments. It’s just a reminder of the compassion that we always have to have. Let’s keep being there for each other. Because we’re in this together. And we will live long and prosper.”

Trekkies from different parts of the globe appreciate the message, as several of them have already taken to Twitter to express their gratitude.

A release date for Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 has yet to be announced, but fans may have to wait a little bit longer for the next chapter of the series as extra precautions are being taken during the pandemic. Though Season 3 had already wrapped principal photography last February, its post-production is still ongoing. And because the show’s editing and visual effects crew are now working from home, delivering the finished product may take longer than the usual.

Meanwhile, work on Star Trek: Picard Season 2 had also started before the onset of the pandemic. However, given the current situation, it’s likely that it will also face some kind of delay. No release date for the show’s sophomore run has been announced yet, but it’s expected to arrive on CBS All Access sometime in 2021.
