TNG Movie Marathon

After a lot of talk at the recent meetup, it has been confirmed this meetup will be a TNG Movie Marathon, and we will squeeze a showing of Forbidden Planet in as well.  I will attempt to follow a schedule so that people may plan their day according to their desires to see what films they choose. I expect that in between shows we will socialize and perhaps watch some bonus features and such. Feel free to stay the whole day or fit whatever works best for you, come late, leave early, whatever best fits your day. If you can a $5 donation will be appreciated to offset costs of renting the facility, but do NOT let that keep you from coming if this is a hardship.

11:00a - Meetup Starts,  social time.

11:30p - Star Trek: First Contact(1996)- one of my personal favorites, The crew of the Enterprise-E pursues the Borg back in time as they threaten to prevent first contact between Humans and Vulcans, thus destroying the Federation before its founding. 

2 :00p- Star Trek: Insurrection(1998)- The crew of the Enterprise aids a rebellion on the Baku homeworld against Picard’s superior officer, Admiral Dougherty, who wants to relocate the Baku to gain possession of the medicinal cosmic radiation that floods their planet.

5:30- Forbidden Planet (1956) -A starship crew goes to investigate the silence of a planet's colony only to find two survivors and a deadly secret that one of them has. This classic film was a strong inspiration leading to Roddenberry's creation of Star Trek.

7:30 Star Trek: Nemesis(2002)- Captain Picard confronts the villainous new Reman leader Shinzon, a younger genetic clone of himself who kidnaps Picard to replenish his own DNA and uses an earlier prototype of Data to spy on the Enterprise while plotting to destroy Earth.

    I'll be there for Forbidden Planet and, if things go as planned, I'll have a quinoa salad with me (if not, it's really potluck ;) ). Looking forward to seeing you!

    • Daniel D.

      nom nom nom! Popcorn. B-)

      April 12, 2014

    • Jennifer D.

      Oh, May. We owe you a snickers bar ... there was a half eaten snickers left over in the plastic bag that had the popcorn in it :-/

    Thank you to everyone who joined us yesterday. We had a blast. We need to do these more often. Thank you to everyone who chipped in and help us cover costs for the Rec Room. Seeing the ISS last night was the cherry on the sundae :-)

    I want to thank everyone that attended today, we had an excellent day! Meet several new people, watched alot of Trek, were able to pay for the rental of the room, and scored a copy of Gravity. Thanks to everyone for such a fine day. If you left early, I have to say you missed perhaps the most special ending. Laura has a tracking app for the ISS, and within minutes of finishing Nemesis, we were outside in the parking lot looking for the ISS, and using her tracking app, and Jen's keen eye, we actually watched it cross the skyline. So amazing! Thanks to Chris for Gravity, and thanks to all who came, enjoyed our company and donated, we will certainly be able to hold an event here again later this year. Until next time, Keep Trekkin'!

    Guess you'll have to put me down in the "Not Cool" column.
    Daniel, how about I bring my locally-famous chili w/fixins and corn bread muffins? Yah?
    And "Nemesis"? Really? At least it has Tom Hardy.
    And ***YAAAAY*** to Daniel & Jen for hosting this mighty fine soiree!! THANK YOU!!

  • Ilana L.

    Always have a good time watching Trek with my people! I am sorry I had to leave early. Can't wait for the next one.

  • susanith

    I so wished that I could have come! Hope you all have fun!

    April 13, 2014

  • Chris R.

    Instead of Forbidden Planet, would anybody be interested in watching Gravity? I don't mean to throw things off, just a question.

    1 · April 13, 2014

  • Justin "Gnarly" B.

    Sounds like fun, but Oregon City is a bit out of my reach. And yeah, what is up with Generations not making the cut?

    April 13, 2014

  • Chad P.

    Do I dare ask why Generations is not on the schedule?

    April 12, 2014

    • Rebecca

      We are flexible. Whichever works better for everyone.

      April 12, 2014

    • Chad P.

      You should keep the schedule the same so as not to mess with the equilibrium :-)

      1 · April 12, 2014

  • Daniel D.

    I will stick to the basic schedule at this point, we can always change it a bit depending on who wants to see what when they are there. Most likely we will fit Generations into the 5:30 slot, unless the people early in the day want to see it then. This schedule is tentative and could change with the wind. I hope everyone comes as they can and we will have a great day regardless, I mean how wrong can you go with Next Gen?

    • Nawder J.

      St is always great, sorta like any ol arnold flick, right? :P

      1 · April 12, 2014

  • Nawder J.

    I hope to make it, first bio exam coming up and I must get an A. And Id rather come for a bit than not at all.

    1 · April 12, 2014

    • Daniel D.

      hope you can make it for whatever amount of time you can fit in, I say cram like mad tonight! B-)

      April 12, 2014

  • Daniel D.

    With this event less then a week away, I would like to remind people to bring something to share for eating and yourselves of course, and if you are not going to be able to make this event, please take yourself off the list because we are closing in on a full event and want to make sure everyone has the chance to sign up. Please in this thread let us know what you plan to bring so I know what needs we have to fill in. There are of course pizza delivery options as well so if you think you may want to be part of that, please bring cash to join in there.

    April 6, 2014

    • Murrianna

      I will bring apples and the iced tea machine with supplies.

      2 · April 8, 2014

    • Daniel D.

      very cool!

      April 12, 2014

  • Ilana L.

    I will bring a big shrimp cocktail ring and plates, plastic- ware, napkins and cups.

    2 · April 8, 2014

  • Daniel D.

    I plan to make some BBQ beans and corn bread. I will also provide some soda pop.

    April 12, 2014

  • Daniel D.

    I was expecting to have Forbidden Planet brought by another member who is not able to attend, so I will probably change the 5:30 Movie to something else, the question is should I bump all the movies up and start with Generations? Or should I just fill it in with something else Sci-Fi in my collection? Or move Nemesis into the time slot and end it a bit earlier? These are all viable choices, unless of course someone else out there wants to bring Forbidden Planet with them. Please Respond with your ideas. Thx!

    April 12, 2014

    • Daniel D.

      I could also slip in one of the recent Trek flicks in that spot.

      April 12, 2014

  • Rebecca

    Dave and I will bring shrimp dip with veggies and chips. We have to leave at 3 to pick up my son at the train station though.

    2 · April 11, 2014

    • Daniel D.

      glad to hear you are joining us for a couple of the early ones. B-)

      April 11, 2014

  • Murrianna

    I wasn't at the last marathon at the clubhouse. Is there a frig? Oven? Or do we plan on bringing things that can be served as is and left out all day?

    I'll presume there are chairs available so no BYOC.

    Thanks.

    1 · April 3, 2014

    • Daniel D.

      There is a fridge and an oven, so if you want to heat anything up or keep it cold, we are well covered, just bring whatever utensils you may need.

      1 · April 4, 2014

  • May

    nice job Daniel!

    April 1, 2014

  • Lisa D.

    Is that a "like" for chili or for not being cool?? ;-). Daniel looves my chili.

    March 20, 2014

  • Richard V.

    This sounds like a fantastic way to waste a day. Looking forward to hanging out with some cool people.

    1 · March 11, 2014

    • Daniel D.

      there's no promise about "cool" people being there, but some nice geeky ones should be there.

      1 · March 11, 2014

  • LauraH

    I going to try to make this, but I know I'll be there later rather than earlier. I'll probably get there between 4pm-6pm. I'm looking forward to seeing you then! :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
