Star Trek Tour in California

SF Universe – If you’re even mildly into Star Trek, this is one exhibit you won’t want to miss. The traveling Star Trek Tour from Creation is a one-of-a-kind experience that really takes you into the Trek world. Sets, props, motion-simulation rides — this is like visiting a Star Trek Theme Park.Here’s what Creation has to say:

To our fellow Star Trek fans:

We’ve very happy to share the announcement of the upcoming STAR TREK: THE TOUR, a 50,000 square foot traveling interactive exhibit of Star Trek sets, props, models, motion-simulator rides and more from all five Trek series and all ten Trek films. The tour will visit 40 cities around the country, kicking off in Long Beach California on January 18th, 2008.

Creation will be represented with our line of autographed collectibles in the sales boutique and we’ll also be helping to coordinate celebrity appearances along the way. We hope to see a lot of friendly faces of folks that have attended our conventions in the past at the various tour stops.

Past Creation guests have helped to put together the tour including production designer Herman Zimmerman, costume designer Robert Blackman and make-up genius Michael Westmore. Gene’s son Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry provides some narration for the exhibits and Creation’s good friend, the one and only William Shatner, is serving as the official ambassador of the tour.

Highlights of STAR TREK THE TOUR include:

Detailed recreations of original sets from Star Trek: The Next Generation, including Captain Picard’s quarters, Dr. Crusher’s sick bay and the majestic NCC-1701-D Bridge.

An all-new multimedia Encounter Theater, built like a theater in the round with 360 degree video screens. Computer-generated sequences put visitors in the middle of the Star Trek action.

The opportunity for exhibit-goers to sit on a full-size Enterprise bridge from the original TV series and have their photo taken and superimposed with an image of the original cast – including Spock, McCoy and Scotty – to look as if the Enterprise crew is standing right next to them.

The ability for guests to star with the original cast in an episode of their choice and watch themselves interact with Star Trek icons such as Spock and Scotty. Guests can take home a DVD of their cameo to share with family and friends.
