The Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience will begin its North American tour on May 13 in Ottawa, Canada.
During this “Starfleet Academy Experience,” the “Canada Aviation and Space Museum will be transformed into a veritable cadet training ground,” and “cadets” will “experience a career day at the Academy.”
“Recruits, in an immersive environment, can participate in several activities meant to test their potential to train for careers as Medical Officers, Science Officers, Communications specialists, and even Commanders.
“The actual science behind Star Trek‘s science fiction will enhance the experience, as participants learn about a variety of emerging technologies, including a functional tricorder, the latest experiments with phasers and teleporters, and also NASA’s warp drive theory.”
“We are very proud to be developing this wonderful exhibition with our partners EMS and CBS Consumer Products,” said Alex Benay, President and CEO of the Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation. “We are certain it will prove to be a ‘must-see’ for the 2016 summer tourists and locals alike, as well as a wonderful complement to the Canada Aviation and Space Museum‘s existing visitor experiences and offerings on aviation and space travel.”
The Starfleet Academy Experience should take “cadets” about an hour to complete.
Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience will run through September 5, 2016 in Ottawa. It will then move to the Telus Spark Science Center in Calgary, Canada.
