February Meeting— Star Wars vs. Star Trek

Posted on Jan 21, 2016

R2D2 and C3POStarship EnterprisePlease join us Thursday, February 4, 2016 for a Debate of Galactic Importance. Which pop culture franchise is the most worthy of preservation? Museum professionals with irrefutable expertise on their subjects will duel with words and images to prove that their pop culture franchise is the most worthy of long-term preservation. Or maybe just the most awesome. So which one will you support? A film and related artifacts from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, or those whose continuing mission is. . . to boldly go where no man has gone before?
