Let's All Wish Sir Patrick Stewart a Happy Captain Picard Day

Star Trek: The Next Generation (1994) - Captain Picard Day - Captain Pipcard (Patrick Stewart)
Here are some awesome ways to help Sir Patrick Stewart celebrate "Captain Picard Day." According to the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "The Pegasus" Captain Picard Day was an annual event held aboard the USS Enterprise-D for the ship's schoolchildren. Part of the celebration involved a contest where the children would make paintings and models of the captain and he had to choose a first, second and third place winners and four honrable mentions. What makes it funny was that Picard was obviously uncomfortable about the event. Of course, that meant the crew loved it. "I'm a role model" Picard nervously told Admiral Blackwell.

Since 2007, fans have celebrated Captain Picard Day on June 16th every year. The stardate mentioned in the episode, Stardate 47457.1, is roughly equivalent to June 16th. This year we thought it would be fun to have a virtual Captain Picard Day. So, for the next 12 hours make a craft and send a picture to Sir Patrick Stewart himself. He's on Twitter as @SirPatStew on Facebook at Patrick Stewart.

If you're looking for ideas here are some quick and easy ways to celebrate
