There's this place called Crystal City near ThinkGeek headquarters, and they run a summer outdoor film festival. Instead of showing Jaws or the latest kid-safe Jim Carrey flick, this year they've chosen a theme near and dear to our little geeky hearts: all the Star Trek films, start to finish, every Monday through August 16th!
This Monday, June 7, is the first of the series (Star Trek: The Motion Picture, 1979) and a few of us will be out there, ninja-style, but the main event will be the next Monday, and we hope our VA/DC/MD pals can come:
Monday, June 14, sunset
Crystal City, Virginia
Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan (1982)
Storm (of Paul and Storm, of course) is planning on coming out, and we have a few friends from NASA Goddard who are likewise down with Khan.
Hope you can make it out, too, 'cause the first 5 people to find us will have $25 gift certificates thrown at them, and we've heard talk of some Star Trek-themed costumes, so maybe we'll bring some other prize items as well. We'll see what we can unearth from the Tribble pile.
If the weather ruins the night and we have to postpone our away mission, we'll pick another night. Don't want any red shirts to die unnecessarily! Oh, wait.
