Those Star Trek fans living in the Bay area will be pleased to hear that Star Trek: The Exhibition will arrive there this fall.
On October 23, Star Trek: The Exhibition will open at the Tech Museum in San Jose, California, and run through at least Christmas. The run “could go beyond that if things go well,” said Elizabeth Williams, senior director of marketing at The Tech.
Star Trek: The Exhibition will take up more than fifteen thousand square feet, and will be larger than those seen in other cities, such as Detroit. “Once again, we’ve successfully endeavored to bring our visitors an exhibition that everyone on the planet, and even strange new worlds, can relate to, learn from and enjoy,” said Tech President Peter Freiss. “Housing the exhibition at the Tech Museum is perfectly logical.”
The exhibit will include: an authentic replica of the bridge from the USS Enterprise NCC-1701 (original series,) actual shooting model of a Borg cube, full-motion flight simulator, costumes and props, such as a tricorder, phaser and communicator, from all five Star Trek television shows as well as from the eleven movies, including Star Trek XI.
“Many of the comments they got in Detroit about the show were about why the new film wasn’t part of the exhibit and why it wasn’t part of the historical timeline in the exhibit,” said Elizabeth Williams, explaining that the exhibit has been updated and will include Star Trek XI.
