Stardate 95274.13 through 95293.28

September 03, 2017 – September 09, 2017

Welcome to the tenth edition of GGA Ready Room! Let’s take a look at what Star Trek news we missed last week, shall we? As a reminder: the standard date for the post will be shown in the title but the week being recapped (September 03 through September 09 in this case) will be shown in the main header in Stardate format as calculated by ST:Online – this calculator will be used since there is not a standard format across all the television shows and feature films and it is easily accessible.

With so much having happened last week, look for a supplementary GGA Ready Room later this week with additional tidbits!  (More specifically, a look at the official ST:Discovery countdown that has begun!)
