Need more George Takei? Boldly go to the The Final Frontier with the Cincinnati Pops, conductor John Morris Russell and narrator and sci-fi legend Takei as they perform epic scores from Star Wars and Star Trek along with intergalactic orchestral masterpieces like Holst’s The Planets and Strauss’ Also sprach Zarathustra (from 2001: A Space Odyssey).

Cincinnati Observatory astronomer Dean Regas will also be on hand projecting large-scale images from NASA onto the big screen while the Pops plays.

Stick around after the performances for a stargazing lesson.

8 p.m. Friday-Saturday; 2 p.m. Sunday. $25-$103. Music Hall, 1241 Elm St., Downtown, cincinnatipops.org.
