Every year The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences selects a recipient for its prestigious Governors Award. This year the Television Academy honored the Star Trek franchise, which recently celebrated over 50 years of entertaining Sci-Fi fans both on the big screen and television alike. On stage to accept were representatives from each of the series: William Shatner and Walter Koenig from Star Trek: The Original Series, LeVar Burton from The Next Generation, Terry Farrell from Deep Space Nine, Jeri Ryan from Voyager, Linda Park from Enterprise and Sonequa Martin-Green from Discovery. Also on stage was Discovery co-creator, and the man heading up the TV franchise, Alex Kurtzman, along with a Kelpien and a (Discovery– style) Klingon.
The full video of the moving tribute to Star Trek can be found here on the Emmy’s website.
