Long before first motion picture ever hit the screen, imaginations everywhere were stimulated by the printed word. From Dickens and Wells to Jordan and Rowling, the power of the printed word is undeniable…


The small screen has been home to Sci-Fi and Fantasy since the days of Captain Video. Today’s audiences have a full library of shows that demonstrate the variety of genre television.


Ever since the days of Metropolis, sci-fi has been a part of cinema. Today’s blockbuster films stimulate the imagination and create new ways to escape the vortex…

Shields up! Red alert! Computer discontinue simulation. Beyond the Vortex Sci-Fi Club of Clarksville, TN will be hosting a Star Trek week in honor of Star Trek: The Next Generation’s 25th Anniversary. On July 21st at Beyond the Vortex at 7:00 p.m., we will have a prequel event where the group will watch the Star Trek: The Next Generation movies at Freedom Deli.


The festivities officially begin on Monday, July 23rd with a lead up to the event at Get Some Coffee at 6:00 p.m. and at 6:30 p.m., we will head over to the Great Escape for the screening of Star Trek: The Next Generation specials, which will start airing at 7:00 p.m. Get Some Coffee is located at 3862 Trenton Rd., Suite C, Clarksville, TN.


The following Saturday, July 28th at Freedom Deli at 8:00 p.m., we will be watching miscellaneous Star Trek episodes and / or movies. Some fan based movies may also be available for the group to watch. Beyond the Vortex looks forward to seeing you during Star Trek: The Next Generation event and for Star Trek week in July!

The second half of the 6th series (we call them seasons here on our side of the Pond) of Doctor Who will begin on August 27th on BBC America. Of course, we’ll be there to catch it at Beyond the Vortex!

We’re planning on a special “Series 6 Part 1″ marathon — probably the week before – Or, at least showing the last couple episodes so everyone can get caught up. After all, we don’t want any of our friends left out in the dust!

Be sure to join us at Freedom Deli every Saturday night at 8:00 for another fun night of sci-fi and fantasy! What will happen next time…

For anyone who shows up at our April 23rd meeting in their favorite sci-fi/fantasy costume, you’ll have a chance to win a gift certificate to Freedom Deli! The festivities start at 7:00 p.m., and we’re celebrating the new season of Doctor Who.

From The Doctor Who News Page:

It is with great sadness that we have to report that the actress Elisabeth Sladen – forever known to us as the Doctor’s best friend, Sarah Jane Smith – has died. The news, which was broken on Twitter earlier today, has since been confirmed via Twitter by Doctor Who Magazine and by BBC News.

Attention all Whovians! Beyond the Vortex will host a Doctor Who Premiere Party on April 23rd at Freedom Deli! We’ll get started just a few minutes before the show’s premiere at 8:00 p.m.! Come join us as we celebrate the beginning of the 6th series of Doctor Who!

Okay, we know, it’s actually the 32nd series… not counting the 1996 movie… Or the 2nd series since Moffat took over. Egad! It’s so confusing!

So come in your British best… stay tuned for more announcements at possible prizes or contests…
