Fans will have the chance to become a Starfleet cadet when the interactive exhibit "Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience" opens in Ottawa, Canada, next year.
The exhibit, which will use the "Star Trek" franchise as a springboard to teach visitors about science and technology, will make its world debut at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum in Ottawa on May 20, 2016.
Produced by EMS Entertainment under license by CBS Consumer Products, the first-of-its-kind “Trek Tech” immersive experience will take students from orientation into a rigorous training program involving simulated science, engineering, medical and command courses, through to graduation, and finally to the deck of an active starship. The experience is enriched with the actual science behind the science fiction of "Star Trek" as the participants learn about emerging technologies such as a functional tricorder, NASA’s warp drive theory and the latest experiments with phasers and teleporters.
Ottawa will be the first stop on a multi-city North American tour for the exhibition.
“'Star Trek' has had a profound influence on many technologies we use today, and the show continues to inspire new technology and science,” says Christoph Rahofer, chief executive officer, EMS Entertainment. “With 'Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience,' we will present the history of the future and what is envisioned for the future of science and technology.”
