Event Preview: Star Trek Convention & Where No Man Has Gone Before
August 2013 in Seattle will be the perfect place for Star Trek fans. On the 24th and 25th a Star Trek convention is being held at the Seatac Hilton where fans can participate in the usual events; costume parade, music video contest, and a karaoke cocktail party. William Shatner, the original Captain Kirk, will be there signing autographs for $80. This is a link to the details.
To make the month even more Star Trek-static, the week before the Star Trek Convention Seattle Experimental Theater performs Star Trek improvised Where No Man Has Gone Before shows on the 16th and 17th. A lovely coincidence, I think. This improv group has a talented cast and no doubt will bring the show to life.
If you still aren’t convinced, this is a nice example of a fanvid showing where those Spock-Kirk rumors came from, accompanied by Placebo’s version of “Running Up That Hill.” That excellent Kate Bush song is worth checking out anyway.
