This coming Friday August 3, the Los Angeles Dodgers are holding their first ever Star Trek Night at Dodger Stadium.  First off there be a giveaway of some really boss, limited edition Star Trek themed Dodgers t-shirts, that, when worn in the right circles, will make you cooler than an Andorian porn star.  But the highlight of the night will be the appearance of Capt. James T. Kirk himself, Sir William Shatner, arguably the finest actor of any generation, who will be on hand to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.

No word on whether or not The Shat will be entertaining the crowd with his rendition of The Star Spangled Banner, or better yet, Elton John’s Rocket Man.  I think that would be too much for even the most die hard “Trekkers” in attendance that night, what with their pointy Spock ears, replica Starfleet uniforms, and complete lack of social skills.

From the Dodgers Official Website…

Always wanted to be a member of the Starfleet Academy? Well now you can join fellow “Trekkers” for the inaugural Star Trek Night at Dodger Stadium when the Dodgers face the Chicago Cubs at 7:10pm on August 3. This ticket package includes a seat in the Coca-Cola All-You-Can-Eat-Pavilion and a limited edition Dodger and Star Trek themed t-shirt. You certainly won’t want to be “beamed up” once you are here. You’ll certainly won’t want to be “beamed up” once you are here. LIVE LONG AND PROSPER!

Star Trek legend William Shatner will be at Dodger Stadium for pre-game festivities and to throw the first pitch!

And here a shot of the aforementioned t-shirts, that will wow the chicks next time you’re at a Star Trek convention…

Set phasers to fabulous.
