Facebook Boldly Goes With New Like Options to Celebrate #StarTrek50

If you’re a fan of Star Trek, you’ve probably made celebration plans in one way or another. But Facebook just gave you a few more.

Fans who have shown fandom toward Star Trek or science fiction will receive a slight modification to their “Like” options. A set of Star Trek options will appear instead of the typical emojis. According to Lindsey Shepard, Facebook Messenger’s marketing lead, the company brainstormed plans to celebrate the franchise’s anniversary for some time, eventually settling on the custom emojis.

Facebook’s new like options feature a starry Like, a Vulcan Salute for Love, Captain Kirk for Haha, Spock for Wow, Gordi for Sad, and Klingon for Angry.

Star Trek fans will also receive a custom greeting on Facebook today and have the option to customize their profile picture with a special Star Trek border.
