Living starships. Super-soldiers. Sentient plants. Intergalactic empires. Wormholes. Animatronic puppets. Join us for a Science Fiction TV Dinner with Farscape, a contemporary science fiction classic from Jim Henson Productions.
We’ll be screening the episode “Throne for a Loss” from the series’ first season. Following the screening, Center for Science and the Imagination Director Ed Finn will moderate a conversation with Elizabeth Bear, a Hugo, Locus and John W. Campbell Award-winning science fiction and fantasy author, and Brad Allenby, President’s Professor of Sustainable Engineering and Lincoln Professor of Engineering and Ethics at ASU. The conversation will explore the scientific, technological, artistic and cultural dimensions of Farscape, and consider the relationship between science fiction and the cultures of science and technology. RSVP Now!
This Science Fiction TV Dinner is part of the Arizona Science Center’s monthly Adults’ Night Out series, which provides free access to the Science Center and a number of activities from 5:30 – 9:00 pm. During online registration, guests can pre-order a box dinner for the Farscape screening for $6. Other snacks and beverages will be available for purchase on the night of the event.
