Come See Star Trek On Opening Night With Us (Silicon Valley)

Update: Tickets now available

The original Star Trek series was my first foray into science fiction, and I have fond memories of watching those original episodes with my dad as a kid. So I’m about as excited as a person can be about the new Star Trek movie coming out this Thursday. And I want to share that excitement with 600 or so of my closest friends.

We’re hosting a Star Trek screening in Silicon Valley on opening night, this Thursday May 7. Our big goal is to get through this without getting any litigation threats, but we’ll see. Want to come? More details soon, but here are the basics: the screening will be held on Thursday at 7 pm at the Redwood City Century 20 theater. We’ll be charging a couple of dollars to reduce no shows, but otherwise the event is on us.

We’ll also be organizing a meeting at a local bar/venue (hopefully with live music, but we’ll see). If you’re interested in sponsoring the event or the drinks afterwards, email Asad at TechCrunch and he’ll give you the details. We’re hoping to find someone who’ll buy everyone popcorn or a drink afterwards at the bar.

See you Thursday! And if you can’t make it, don’t worry. I’ll live stream the whole thing on Qik.

Update: Here’s season 1, episode 1 of the original Star Trek:
