Need more Nimoy? Beam yourself to the Eureka Theater
on Sunday, March 15
from 3-9:30 p.m.
for Spock Day
($5). Doors open at 2:30
(yup, they went there) in the lobby and raise a glass and a razor sharp eyebrow to the half-Vulcan legend. At 5 p.m.
prepare to go where, well, many of us have gone before: back to Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
(1982). That's the original Spock and Kirk, for all you kiddies, and it would be illogical not to yell "Khaaaaaan!"
when the moment comes. Then at 7 p.m.
Leonard Nimoy is back as Spock in the 2009 reboot Star Trek
alongside Zachary Quinto as ... um, Spock. It's actually kind of Spocked up.
But wait, why are you showing up early, two hours before the first movie
? Because like a routine scouting mission, anything can happen
. Tribbles or Pon farr-mad Vulcans or Romulans or some radical Trekkie splinter group could take over the projection booth
and do something awesome. Just be there. You are wondering whether to wear the ears — the answer is yes. And the uniform? If not now, when? But maybe not the red shirt if you want to make it to the sequel.
