The stars ofStar Trek: The Next Generationgathered via Zoom for a special occasion: co-star Marina Sirtis' birthday. Sirtis, who played Troi in the CBS series, and Jonathan Frakes, who played Riker, posted photos of the online reunion with their former co-stars Patrick Stewart (Captain Picard), Brent Spiner (Data), LeVar Burton (Geordie), Michael Dorn (Worf), Gates McFadden (Dr. Crusher), and Wil Wheaton (Wesley).

Following the CDC's recommendation for social distancing to help alleviate the spread of the coronavirus, the gang assembled online to celebrate Sirtis, making every Trekkie's day in the process. "I have the best friends in the world. Considering everything, this was the best birthday present. #TNGRules," Sirtis tweeted.

Sirtis, Frakes, and Spiner recently reprised their roles in the Next Generation spin-off Star Trek: Picard, which stars Stewart and is now streaming on CBS All Access. With the series already renewed for Season 2, we're holding out hope that additional OG castmembers, like Burton's Geordie or Dorn's Worf, will drop by to see their old friend next season.

For now, enjoy this sweet photo of the gang together and imagine what their rendition of "Happy Birthday" must have sounded like.
