Communication Log- Road Trip to the ST Universe!

How far would you travel to see the new Star Trek the Tour? The ST:Tour is starting in San Francisco, then Minneapolis, Chicago, and then Detroit. The East Coast cities have not been announced yet.

The following is from Small Screen News http://smallscreen.monstersandcritics.com/news/article_1386681.php

"Highlights of STAR TREK THE TOUR include:

* The chance to take a ride through a Star Trek adventure in four full-motion, show-based flight simulators.

* An all-new multimedia Encounter Theater, built like a theater in the round with 360 degree video screens. Computer-generated sequences put visitors in the middle of the Star Trek action.

* The opportunity for exhibit-goers to sit (in Kirk's chair) on a full-size Enterprise bridge from the original TV series and have their photo taken and superimposed with an image of the original cast – including Spock, McCoy and Scotty – to look as if the Enterprise crew is standing right next to them.

* Detailed recreations of original sets from Star Trek: The Next Generation®, including Captain Picard’s quarters, Dr. Crusher’s sick bay and the majestic NCC-1701-D Bridge.

* The ability for guests to star with the original cast in an episode of their choice and watch themselves interact with Star Trek icons such as Spock and Scotty. Guests can take home a DVD of their cameo to share with family and friends. "
