Did Sulu just whiz by? Lieutenant Uhura? Jean-Luc Picard??? On Friday, February 1, prepare to skate with local versions of Enterprise personnel, as well as a few inspired by the Star Wars franchise, Dr. Who, and NASA, and a whole bunch of folks wearing glow-in-the-dark antennas. At the Buhr Park Outdoor Ice Arena, the first Friday of each winter month is designated Funky Frosty Friday, where skaters wear costumes; prizes are given for the best ones. February’s theme is sci-fi, with an appropriately futuristic soundtrack. The rink is big, and you may be sharing it with anywhere from 30 to more than 100 people. If you don’t have your own skates, you can rent them, and while there aren’t any vendors selling refreshments, the heated lobby has vending machines. Costumes aren’t required. Then again, when you have the chance to wear Princess Leia buns AND skates at the same time, why resist the Force?

From 7:15pm to 8:45 pm. Admission $5 to $7. 2751 Packard Rd. 734-794-6234. www.a2gov.org
