This week at SpockSoc: Eureka, the second half of season four. As with the Warehouse 13 screening earlier in the session, I don’t quite have enough episodes to make a full screening, so I’ll be filling the remaining time by showing one of Colin Ferguson’s Q&A sessions from last year’s Warehouse In Eureka event run by The Hub Productions.
Eureka takes place in a high tech fictional community of the same name, located in the U.S. state of Oregon and inhabited entirely by brilliant scientists working on new scientific advances. The town is operated by a corporation called Global Dynamics (GD), that is overseen by the United States Department of Defense. The town’s existence and location are closely guarded secrets.
U.S. Marshal Jack Carter stumbles upon Eureka while transporting a fugitive prisoner (his own rebellious teenage daughter Zoe) back to her mother’s home in Los Angeles. When a faulty experiment cripples the sheriff of Eureka, Carter finds himself quickly chosen to fill the vacancy. Despite not being a genius like most members of the town, Jack Carter demonstrates a remarkable ability to connect to others, keen and practical insights, and a dedication to preserving the safety of Eureka.
Same SpockTime, same SpockPlace. Friday 5pm in ChemSci M18.
On a different note, SpockSoc has decided not to organise a trip for the midnight premiere of Avengers. If anyone’s interested, though, the Randwick Ritz is selling tickets for $13 – the premiere is at 12:01am on Anzac Day, so you’ve got the whole day to recover from staying up all night. SpockSoc will be going to a regular screening the week after.
