This may be the first time we’ve ever tipped our hats to Subspace Communique, but here goes — the Los Angeles Dodgers are hoping to follow in the footsteps of successful ‘Star Wars Days’ in San Francisco and Tampa with their inaugural ‘Star Trek Day’ on August 3rd. If you go, you get two special gifts: a Spock shirsey and the chance to watch an 81-year old spaceship captain throw out the first pitch.
This ticket package includes a seat in the Coca-Cola All-You-Can-Eat-Pavilion and a limited edition Dodger and Star Trek themed t-shirt. You certainly won’t want to be “beamed up” once you are here. You’ll certainly won’t want to be “beamed up” once you are here. LIVE LONG AND PROSPER!
Star Trek legend William Shatner will be at Dodger Stadium for pre-game festivities and to throw the first pitch!
I was hoping they’d wheel out Captain Pike and let him push the ball to home plate with his brainwave chair. I was also hoping they’d get my favorite captain (Ben Sisko) to throw out the first pitch, but we all know he reps the Giants.
If you live in the area (or are enough of a Trekker, literally) and make it out to the game, snap as many photos as you can of dudes in pointy ears and Clayton Kershaw jerseys, send them over to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll share them with the world. Just don’t wear red to the game, it won’t end well for you.
