SCI FI Wire confirmed today that a contract has been signed with CBS/Paramount to reopen the Star Trek The Experience exhibit in Las Vegas on May 8--starting with at least a new restaurant and retail shop—to coincide with the opening of J.J. Abram's Star Trek movie...Las Vegas city public information officer Jace Radke confirmed to SCI FI Wire that Star Trek The Experience... will move downtown to the Neonopolis Center.
The exhibition will get a face lift and new features, bringing it up to date with the post-Abram's Star Trek universe. The current plans don't seem to have the rides from the old exhibition. But Quark's Restaurant and Bar, the Museum of the Future, and the shop will all definitely reopen.
And If the exhibition gets enough attention "it's expected" that they'll eventually rebuild the rides. So - as a small way of apologizing for that Dorkdom crack - consider this your official pointy-eared reminder that Southwest Airlines has been expanding their routes and dropping hints about possible meal service. So now you can boldly go etc etc.
