It's that time again - the TrekSoc you've all been waiting for...
This is always a controversial showing so be sure to suggest and vote for your favourite films or two-parters!
Good luck to all who have exams and can't make it to our final meeting of term - for the rest of us meet at 7:45 outside St John's as usual :)

Pale skin, sensitive to noise, high caffeine tolerance - finalists and Vulcans have a lot in common! Sadly, or perhaps happily, few Star Trek episodes focus on students taking their terminal exams. Fortunately, however, there are plenty that feature everyone's favourite green-blooded, anatomically-confused race of logicians (who promise that they do in fact have feelings).
Vulcans appear in 401 episodes of Star Trek, so as the Mathematicians/CompSci people will tell you, that's 80200 possible evenings that we could have. While that's not quite "Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations," it's close enough for plenty of excitement. So, get on the Facebook group, nominate an episode featuring your favourite pointy-eared hobgoblin, and come along!
This week we'll be at St John's - as always we'll meet outside the lodge at 7:45.
Over the past 50 years, Star Trek has been a consistent vehicle of social commentary, challenging people's views and presenting new perspectives on old issues. This week we're nominating episodes that have some element of this - it's quite an open theme, so go wild (and no, there's no (reasonable/acceptable) way to spin Spock's Brain as a social commentary). So get on the Facebook Group and vote/ nominate an episode (as always, leave a reason for your nomination in the comments below)!
This week we're back at St John's so we'll meet outside the lodge on St Giles at 19:45 for a 20:00 start.
Best of luck for all of you who have exams!
