star trek - SCI-FIVE! \\//

Oregonians! Trek in the Park is back!

Trek in the Park RETURNS! This summer, we present Space Seed, an episode with one of the most classic and enduring villains to ever cross paths with Kirk and crew in the final frontier, KHAN.

A perfectly preserved, genetically enhanced warrior from the 20th century, Khan, is revived by the crew of the USS Enterprise upon discovering his adrift ship. They deduce Khan was the kind of 20th century leader who could have conquered the Earth in his time. However, not everyone is suspicious of Khan’s intentions, one such person is Lt. Marla McGivers, the ship’s historian. She is so moved by Khan’s glorious ambition, she assists him in hijacking the Enterprise to finish the conquest Khan Noonian Singh started 200 years ago. Will this be the last generation for the crew of the USS Enterprise?

Portland actors are accompanied by live music and effects bring this classic piece of television to life!

WHERE: Woodlawn Park at NE Claremont and NE Oneonta, Portland OR
WHEN: Shows are at 5:00pm Saturdays and Sundays July 10-August 1 (4 weekends! 8 shows total!) Be sure to get there early for a good viewing spot!
WHY: These guys are hardcore GQMFs. They did Amok Time last year, and it was genius. You sit outside in a park and watch Star Trek. I can think of absolutely NO reason not to go. So DO IT.
MORE INFO: Atomic Arts, Facebook event. You can also comment here with any questions and I'll send them on to people with answers. :)


Spend a day in the park, bring a picnic, and BOLDLY GO!

Sequel Gossip

Earlier a couple of videos were post of Orci and Kurtzman talking about the sequel. At the same event was Bryan Burk, the producer. Trekmovie got an interview with him about the next movie and it has me equally excited and apprehensive.

This sounds promising. The constant reference to "making it bigger" has me worried as bigger doesn't necessarily mean better but the ideas they have seem like it might be a good thing. Here's hoping /fingers crossed.
