After taking a week off for the Star Trek con in Vegas, the Summer STAR TREK Simply Spectacular Saturdays at the Royal Theater in West LA picks up again tomorrow with a showing of Star Trek: First Contact on the big screen, along with special guest Brannon Braga. Plus we have updated the schedule for the rest of the series…details below.
Assimilate the best TNG movie with the most prolific Trek writer
Saturday night Laemmle Theaters (in conjunction with Ledjer Film & Theater services and TrekMovie.com) continues the Summer series of Star Trek Saturday midnight movies with the second (and what most consider to be the best) feature film from the Next Generation crew. In Star Trek: First Contact, Captain Picard and crew stand on their own, in a brand new ship, to take on their ultimate adversaries — the Borg. See the Enterprise E and crew hit the big screen Saturday at the Royal Theatre in West L.A.
Star Trek First Contact trailer
As we do with each film, the screening is proceeded with a Q&A session and tonight I will be talking with the Star Trek writer/producer Brannon Braga. Brannon co-wrote First Contact and wrote more Star Trek episodes than any other writer. We will talk about First Contact, and his other work. We will also open it up to the audience for some questions as well.
See Star Trek First Contact in on the big screen with special guest Brannon Braga at the Royal Theater in West LA tonight Saturday August 14th
