The Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk, CT, is debuting the new Star Trek today and running it for the next few weeks in true IMAX. We’re reaching out to the most active Star Trek fan sites to invite you to come by if you live in the surrounding area. We know there is plenty of passionate discussion about how the film compares to the long history of the series, but we’d also like to know whether watching it on a full IMAX screen changes the experience in a fundamental way.

Now, you may be asking what Star Trek has to do with an aquarium. We actually play a variety of films in the evenings in our IMAX theater (and you can check out the updated schedule here:, but there’s a particularly close tie-in between Star Trek and the work we do at the aquarium. For instance, many of you have likely noticed that the leadership of the Enterprise closely resembles naval infrastructure, and the parallels between naval exploration and space exploration runs throughout Star Trek history. From Khan’s quoting of Moby Dick to saving the whales in Star Trek VI, this is a thread that runs deep in the Star Trek story world. So, from the influence of C.S. Forester’s Horatio Hornblower on Roddenberry’s creation of Capt. Kirk to the many references to Jacques Cousteau (including not just the parallels to Capt. Picard but The Cousteau yacht itself), there’s no doubt that life on—and in—the water had a great influence on the development of Star Trek.

We feel true IMAX gives a whole new perspective on the Enterprise, and we’d love to know what you think. If you get a chance to stop by our theater and check out the film, drop me a line at to let us know what you think.
