This isn't really work related, but since it's a similar industry I'll post about it.
My nerdy friend Ardork wanted to go see the Star Trek the Exhibition, so we decided to go.
Here is the entrance. They took a section of the Air and Space Museum in Balboa Park, San Diego.
Unfortunately, this was all I can take for pictures and whatnot.
The "Star Trek Simulators" cost extra, aside from the $24 admission.
This is the $5 ride. We rode it but I didn't really understand the difference between this and the Star Tours ride. And I thought "Resistance is futile" was a line from Star Wars, but I guess I was wrong.
This is the $8 ride, and it had nothing to do with Star Trek.
Some comments left at the museum comment book.
Inside the Exhibition you can take several official pictures inside the spaceship(?) or a beaming thing. So here is what we took:
Blurred to protect nerd privacy.
We bought two 8x10's that came with a decent picture frame + digital data, which equaled $42 total. Which wasn't bad when split up among seven people. By the way, those poses are suggested by the staff.
Anyway, I went to this Exhibition without EVER watching one Star Trek episode. I didn't even know that Mr. Spock and Professor Xavier (as I know him) were in different seasons.
I guess it was a good place to learn about Star Trek. Now I can go watch the movie with ease.
