At last, O-Week is upon us! The birds are singing, the sun is…actually hiding behind clouds at the moment but perhaps that will improve – and our O-Week stall is up and running! We’re in stall number QD22 (unsurprisingly, located in the quadrangle), feel free to swing by and say hello! We’ll be more than happy to answer questions about our upcoming screenings, the book club or just the general terrible whims of the Shadow Council for this year.
This week, we’ve got a royal welcome back planned with a much-anticipated Tuesday movie outing and a preview of our semester one schedule!
For our first official screening of the year, we’re going to do something we haven’t done in a while – a preview night!
In a break from our usual format, we’ll be starting off at 5 with a bit of a meet and greet session – come along and get to know Spocksoc members new and old!
Then from 6pm, we’ll be showing the pilot episodes for four of the new shows we’re most excited about this year, before finishing up with a new (to us) episode of Star Trek Discovery!
We’ll be watching the following episodes (in roughly this order):
– The Orville, “Old Wounds” (Season 1 Episode 1)
– The Gifted, “eXposed” (Season 1 Episode 1)
– Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, “The Hood Maker” (Season 1 Episode 1)
– Altered Carbon, “Out of the Past” (Season 1 Episode 1)
– Star Trek Discovery, “Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum” (Season 1 Episode 8)
If you’ve been a member for a while but haven’t managed to make it to an event, this is a great opportunity to get a feel for the kind of things we do (ie, watch ungodly amounts of television) and the kind of people we are (ie, friendly!)
