During the Houston Symphonys Music of Star Trek & More Sci-Fi, Attendees dressed as their favorite characters can participate in the symphonys costume contest, according to press materials. Ah, yeah. Geeks, dont fail us now. Hearing a full orchestra play soundtrack selections from Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise would be even better sitting next to some dude holding up the Vulcan salute and wearing a tight, pastel sweater with a homemade logo on the left breast. But dont be surprised if you see HAL 9000 or Count Baltar in the crowd as well the show also includes tunes from 2001: A Space Odyssey and Battlestar Galactica. Cmon, Trekkies, dont be shy you only live long and prosper once. 7:30 p.m. 615 Louisiana. For information, call 713-224-7575 or visit www.houstonsymphony.org. $25 to $95.
