Program Description

Event Details

Join Clive Young for his presentation Beam Me Up, which traces the fascinating creation of the best-known science fiction franchise of all-time. This fast-paced, multimedia program explores how creator Gene Roddenberry first envisioned the original TV show as a western in space, and then steadily built a team of legendary actors, brilliant writers and clear-sighted directors who brought the original crew’s story to life across a TV series, animated children’s show and six feature films between 1966 and 1991. Aimed at both beginner and longtime fans, the program follows Star Trek‘s long, tumultuous history and its continuing impact on pop culture around the world.  

Clive Young is a writer and editor for professional audio and sound technology publications and websites, as well as a frequent presenter on pop culture topics at universities, museums, and libraries throughout the U.S.
