The Los Angeles Dodgers are celebrating Star Trek Night for the first time Friday night, following up on several years of success with Star Wars Night.

Dodgers/Star Trek fan Pete Szilagyi says he's going to see geeks and sports come together in an unholy matrimony. "I'm curious to see what it's going to look like seeing Klingons cheering on a double play." Szilagyi's passionate about both sports and geek culture, so he's excited to see other fans who embrace both worlds. He's also taking sides: Star Trek over Star Wars, all the way.

What's Pete's geek cred? He grew up loving "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and even read the spinoff novelizations, and now he's watching both the original series and the Next Generation on Blu-Ray.

Star Trek Night is following in the fan-driven footsteps of Star Wars Night: The Star Trek fan packages are all sold out.
