After being delayed due to financial issues and a change in ownership, Star Trek The Exhibition is on the move to San Diego, California.
As reported by aerospacemuseum.org, Star Trek The Exhibition is due to open in San Diego on the 21st of June at the San Diego Air & Space Museum located in Balboa Park.
Highlights from the exhibition features recreations of original sets from Star Trek: The Next Generation, two full-motion flight simulators to take fans "through the galaxy", interactive episodes where fans can "star" with the original cast and have a DVD made of the experience, and a full-sized bridge from the original series Enterprise, where fans can have their photos taken and superimposed with an image of the original cast including Spock, Dr. McCoy and Scotty.
According to an article at TrekMovie.com, Star Trek The Exhibition is "more compact". Because of this, it will be traveling to more cities, as it is expected that two shows can be run simultaneously.
Star Trek The Exhibition will be staying in each city for a longer time. It is expected that Star Trek The Exhibition will remain in San Diego throughout the rest of the year.
Ticket prices for the event will also be lower than they had been when it appeared in Long Beach, with discounts available for students, military members, senior citizens and museum members.
