Another Nerd Lineup

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

We wonder what's going to happen when a large group of Star Trek nerds head to the Embassy Suites LAX for the finale of Enterprise while a large group of Star Wars nerds prepares for the final week before Revenge of the Sith hits theatres across town. Will there be a rip in the space-time continuum? How about a disturbance in the force? Will Star Wars kids don their stormtrooper armor and teleport south and west to battle the trekkies like a sci-fi "West Side Story"?

We can only hope for the latter.

If you love Enterprise, though, you might want to check out this finale viewing party. Eugene Roddenberry will be screening the episode with the fans where he promises to celebrate 40 years of Star Trek. It's happening this Friday from 6 PM to 10 PM and is only $15.

Update: without even knowing about the Enterprise finale party, The Beat calls this friday a nerdpocalypse.
