18 Mar STAR TREK tours awes Trekkies
The Star Trek tours have given fans from around the world the extraordinary opportunity to step inside the world of Star Trek and become active participants in a franchise that has captured the imaginations of millions. Interactive exhibits included show-based simulators, multimedia attractions, and the world’s largest collection of Star Trek ships, sets, costumes and props from all five TV series and ten films over the last half century.
Throughout 1998 and 1999, Star Trek-The Tour brought the world of Star Trek to Düsseldorf, Germany and Vienna, Austria, as well as Singapore. Due to popular demand, the tour was revitalized and re-launched as Star Trek – The Adventure, touring through 2002–2003 from Singapore to London. In 2008, SEE™ brought Star Trek – World Tour to the United States, traveling to San Francisco, Long Beach, Minneapolis, Chicago and Detroit.
William Shatner, who portrayed Star Trek’s most iconic character, Captain James T. Kirk, was the official Celebrity Ambassador for the tour and made appearances at various times throughout the tour’s multi-city run. Before the run, Mr. Shatner said, “This will truly be an impressive experience for the whole family and I am happy to be associated with it.”
