This year is Star Trek‘s 50th anniversary. While Star Trek has always been a part of my life (I distinctly remember my mom watching The Next Generation when I was a kid, as well as her favorite of the movies, The Wrath of Khan), it’s never been as much a part as it is now.
My husband is a serious Trekkie. His affinity for Star Trek is like mine for all things Tolkien: he comes by it honestly because he’s a second generation fan. Because of the constant stream of information and thanks to watching all of the shows (yes, even the Animated Series) at least once through, I’ve slowly gone from enjoying it to maybe being a Trekkie myself.
Needless to say, then, that when we found out that there was a symphony coming through to celebrate Star Trek‘s anniversary, we had to round up all of our geeky friends and family and go.
If you like Star Trek even a little and enjoy music, this is definitely the event for you.
It’s spending the earlier part of the year east of the Mississippi and in Canada, then hopping to the West Coast, and finishing in the western interior.
