Syfy Memorial Day Weekend Star Trek Movie Marathon + Watch Fans Hold Their Own “Trekathon” May 27, 2011by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: Feature Films (TMP-NEM),Star Trek (2009 film) , trackback
Have you ever considered watching all of the Star Trek movies in one extended marathon viewing session? This weekend you can do just that watching Syfy (almost) with a marathon of nine Star Trek films. Detailed schedule below plus we have a fun time-lapsed video of a grooup of fans who just held their own "Trekathon."
Video: Fans Hold Their Own “Trekathon”
Last weekend a group of friends in Los Angeles sat down to watch all eleven Star Trek feature films in a row, grading each along the way. Watch the time lapse video here:
The Trekathon was organized by Athena Stamos and her boyfriend Brad Hansen. The idea actually came about after they and their friends did a marathon of all 25 James Bond movies earlier in the year (you can watch that on YouTube). Both Stamos and Hansen are contributors to CommanderBond.net. Stamos tells TrekMovie that as big Trek fans, Star Trek was the natural choice for their next marathon.
Syfy’s Memorial Day Weekend Star Trek Movie Marathon
Syfy can help you do your own “Trekathon” as they kicks off summer with a Star Trek movie marathon. Over the weekend of May 28-30th Syfy will air all the original series movies and all the TNG movies except Insurrection. There are also a couple of TNG episodes thrown in. Here is the full schedule. You can fill in the gap by renting the remaining two Star Trek films and remember the 2009 Star Trek film is available on Netflix streaming.
