To Boldly Go Where Many of Us Have Already Gone Repeatedly

I don't know about Torontoist, but I plan to go to the Science Center tonight, and so should other Toronto Trekkers:

Torontoist, like nearly every other web publication staffed by the appropriately web-savvy, boasts its fair share of geeks. And when we say geeks, we mean geeks—the kind whose browsers dedicate at least one tab to Memory Alpha, while jumping between MSN conversations debating the Wilsonian overtones of James T. Kirk's less-than-subtle foreign galactic policy.
So when the Ontario Science Centre rang us up with an invitation to review J.J. Abram's Star Trek reboot on the biggest screen imaginable—its 180-degree, wrap-around OMNIMAX Dome—we were about as unabashed in our tittering glee as you can imagine. We'd lace every sentence with references to warp drive or teleporters in describing our mad dash to Eglinton and Don Mills—a faint cartoon outline in our wake, our cheeks billowing in the wind—but we'll spare you those, as well as any spoilers for those who have yet to see it. Suffice it to say that the OMNIMAX Star Trek experience, immersing the audience in one of the most brilliant sci-fi re-imaginings since Battlestar Galactica, is hands down the best way to see the movie.

Love how they put down Kirk...
