With the great popularity of Star Trek:Wrath of Khan run by Larry at the Dryden, I thought I would set up one of my favorite science fiction movies for an event.

Galaxy Quest stars Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman. The story is about the actors of a cult TV science fiction show (like Star Trek) who attend fan conventions and try to profit off their fading glory (Think Tim Allen as William Shatner). But then the actors are called to fulfill their roles to actually save a race of aliens who worship their show and see the Galaxy Quest actors as their saviors. Amazingly funny and touching.

After, we could go to Starry Nites for some coffee, desserts and talk of how Shatner would truly fill this role if he had time off between Priceline commercials. ; ).
