Science Fiction TV Dinner - Star Trek: The Next Generation
Thu, September 8, 2016, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM MST
September 8, 2016 is the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek universe. Celebrate with us by taking a journey to the final frontier, where Captain Picard and his stouthearted crew encounter mystical artifacts and grapple with whether Data has an artistic imagination.
The seventh season episode "Masks" quietly raises fascinating questions about crew dynamics and psychological well-being on long spacefaring missions. How can humans and AIs alike retain their sanity and rationality after years of voyaging?
Join us for a screening and conversation with Garth Johnson, curator of ceramics at the ASU Art Museum, and Dr. Kerri Salamanca, a psychologist at the Phoenix VA Medical Center.
We'll have free dinner available for the first 150 guests.
Parking: Parking can be challenging on ASU's Tempe campus. We recommend that you use the Metro Light Rail to travel to the event, disembarking at the University Drive and Rural Road station. You can also use the Valley Metro bus system. If you'd like to explore options for visitor parking on campus, please visit the ASU Parking and Transit website.
Seating: Seating is first come, first served, and your RSVP does not guarantee a seat. So please arrive early, or at least on time!
