Soon you will be able to boldly go where so many Star Trek fans are dying to go.
Pop culture hotspot EMP Museum is about to open a sci-fi exhibit in honor of “Star Trek’s” grand 50th anniversary.
The exhibit is called Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds and it opens to the public May 21, although members get a special sneak peek starting at 10 p.m. ET on Friday, May 20. This is followed by a soiree entitled the Star Trek: Landing Party, which is later that evening at 7:30 p.m.
We recommend that any red shirt personnel be on their toes at all times.
Social media does offer a glimpse into the various items on display, which will include Captain Kirk’s command chair as well as various costumes from characters on the show.
This gives you the perfect opportunity to regale those nearby with your best William Shatner impersonation.
First, curator Brooks Peck – a pop culture guru – stopped by with Twitch personnel to speak on EMP Museum’s various sci-fi exhibits and the upcoming Star Trek celebration.
Peck offered a ton of details that should have you itching to get to Seattle. The coolest and perhaps nerdiest item has to be Data’s painting of his pet Spot.
Now I am left with a quandary of how to get one of these prints back to the house and on the wall without the wife saying anything.
If obscure Next Generation references aren’t your thing, then you can explore the 5,000-square-foot area for things like the Enterprise and Deep Space Nine miniatures, costumes and other props.
Peck promises about 100 different objects, including both iterations of Khan costumes. Here is some more thanks to social media.
For the lucky folks there on day one, you will get to see Tasha Yar and Data in person. Yes, Brent Spiner and Denice Crosby will be in attendance.
EMP Museum has a habit of rolling out completely awesome displays. Back in February 2015 it welcomed Star Wars fans to its dazzling costume exhibit.
Now it’s Star Trek’s turn to take center stage, and we couldn’t be any more excited.
