Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday. We Americans proudly spend it with family and friends. We eat, drink, catch up on the past year, laugh and treasure the people around us. That is, until Aunt Denise says something really uncomfortable and then Cousin Kyle brings up the election AGAIN and then everyone is yelling while doing dishes with bellies so full we may vomit all over innocent doggy, Max, ruining the previous day’s expensive grooming.

 BBC America knows this and once again will be airing Treksgiving! Beginning on Thanksgiving, the channel will be a non-top Star Trek extravaganza until the wee hours of Sunday morning. There will be a break on Saturday evening, of course, for Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.  The three-day event will show episodes from The Original Series, The Next Generation and Voyager. So when Grandma Rose tells you that she was a pole dancer before pole dancing was even a thing and that’s how she met Grandpa Holt, you can slip into the den where you’ve been sleeping, turn on the television or use your mobile device and lose yourself in Trek. Is there anything better? 

Happy Treksgiving everyone! Watch the fun trailer below! Also, check out our tips and tricks to enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend!
