The newest Star Trek film, “Star Trek into Darkness,” opens Friday and is widely anticipated to be a blockbuster, so get in on the fun this weekend.
Join CLC professors John and Maria Jose Tenuto for a fun and detailed presentation about the classic 1967 Star Trek episode “Space Seed,” which introduced the world to the villain Khan (Ricardo Montalban).
