Some Star Trek The Experience Assets To Be SoldPosted by T'Bonz - 09/02/10 at 02:02 pm
According to TrekMovie.com, fans wanting a piece of Star Trek: The Experience will be able at a future date to purchase some of the items formerly featured at the Trek-themed attraction formerly at the Las Vegas Hilton.
Star Trek: The Experience has been closed for more than a year now and while plans are still in progress to open a new attraction in downtown Las Vegas at the Neonopolis development, CBS has decided that not all of the items used in the Las Vegas Hilton attraction and stored in a warehouse when the attraction closed will be needed for the Neonopolis location.
The Star Trek: The Experience relocation to Neonopolis is still in the cards, although progress is slower than expected due to the downturn in the economy. While no date has been set yet, a possibility would be 2012, when Star Trek XII is expected to be released.
CBS released a statement reaffirming their commitment to the attraction. “We continue to work with our partners at Neonopolis regarding the development of a new Star Trek: The Experience in Las Vegas. In the interim, there are elements from the original Star Trek: The Experience that we know will not be utilized in any new attraction and plan to make those items available to the many wonderful fans of Star Trek: The Experience either by sale or auction in the near future. The final dates and details of such sales are in progress and we hope to announce more very soon.”
Further details will be announced as they become available.
