Happy Captain Picard Day!

June 16, 2011 at 3:08 PM ET

It's stardate 47457.1! In other words, it's June 16, also recognized as Capt. Picard Day by Trekkies.

And though the best captain in the history of the "Star Trek" franchise (in my opinion, anyway) isn't usually thrilled by this annual event, crew members of the USS Enterprise seem to enjoy it. Watch as Cmdr. Riker has a little fun at the captain's expense:

However you choose to celebrate the day -- be it by creating an orange, lumpy-skinned bust of Jean-Luc Picard or rewatching the entire series -- make sure you toast him with the appropriate beverage: tea, Earl Grey, hot.
