September 17, 2017 – September 23, 2017
Welcome to the twelfth 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 17 through September 23 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.

- Sonequa Martin-Green also enjoyed the
redblue carpet premiere last week and she was joined by ST:TOS‘ Nichelle Nichols!
I call this, "The Legend and the Dreamer." She whispered to me, "Enjoy this time. It's yours now." What a blessing, what a woman. I stand on your shoulders Nichelle Nichols. Thank you for heeding Dr. King's words and getting involved, for letting us see you be competent, strong and authoritative at such a pivotal time. And thank you for all you've contributed, to my life, to this country and to the world. #startrekfamily #letsboldlygo #StarTrekDiscovery #worldpremiere #tonight
