The Starship Enterprise touches down in London’s Hyde Park next month with an interactive Star Trek exhibition that hopes to attract 10 000 visitors a day.
Stellar phenomena include the Bridge Experience, a three-storey replica of Quark’s Bar from Deep Space Nine, flight simulators and a cinema showing famous episodes. Long time Star Trek production designer Herman Zimmerman is curating the show, which features behind-the-scenes insights into how the environments and special effects are created.
Real Trekkies can even be beamed up in Scotty’s Transporter. Makes a change from jogging and feeding the ducks for park-lifers.
All together now, ‘Star Trekkin’ across the Serpentine, boldly going forward, our dogs not far behind.’
