Sub-Space Communication Intercepted: Star Trek Held Over

Kirk Confirms Film at IMAX through August 9th

Star Trek

Chattanooga, Tenn. (July 23, 2009) - The following communication was intercepted today on a sub-space frequency:

Spock: “Captain, I am detecting readings that Star Trek: The IMAX Experience was scheduled to end its run at the Tennessee Aquarium IMAX Theater on July 30th. That would be ill-logical.”

Kirk: “Scottie – Check the projector’s dilithium crystals. How are they holding up?”

Scottie: “Aye Captain. They seem to be holdin’ up just fine. I’d say the film could run at warp speed on the giant, six-story screen through at least August 9th.”

Kirk: “Well then. Spock, I think you’ll find it most reassuring that Star Trek: The IMAX Experience WILL continue showing at the Tennessee Aquarium IMAX Theater through August 9th.”

Dr. McCoy: “You see Spock, anytime you’re worried about film listings you can log onto the Aquarium’s website: . You could even tap into your human side and become an Aquarium Facebook Fan. That would be the logical move for anyone who wants to stay up to date on Aquarium events and IMAX movies.”

Spock: “You didn’t have to resort to insults Doctor McCoy. I will update our records to show Star Trek: The IMAX Experience playing through August 9th.”

Kirk: “And…let’s….not…forget. ‘Under the Sea 3D’ and ‘African Adventure 3D’ are also showing. Kirk out.”
