Hackaday is hosting a meetup at the most unlikely place possible: Veridian III, the site of the battle between the Duras sisters and the Enterprise, the crash site of NCC-1701-D, and the final resting place of Admiral James Tiberius Kirk.
We’ll be visiting Veridian III at the Valley of Fire State Park on Wednesday, August 3rd, starting at 1pm. It’s about an hour north of Vegas. As you would expect, hats, sunscreen, good shoes, and a supply of water that could be categorized as “survivalist” are a good idea. Hackaday will be at the visitor center at 1PM, and after a half hour or so, the entire meetup will drive a few miles north to cooler looking rocks.
This meetup is hosted by @Benchoff.

Coincidently, there's a Star Trek convention happening the same week! http://www.startrek.com/upcoming_events
We'll also be discussing how Star Trek: Voyager led directly to the presidency of Barack Obama. (It did, for real)
