My oldest brother is one of the reasons I love Star Trek as much as I do so when I first heard about the exhibit I knew that's where I was taking him for his birthday. That was months ago and we were both too busy at the time. Well, September snuck up pretty damn quick and we were lucky to make it there for the very last weekend. Technically speaking, pictures weren't "allowed" so I just snuck a few with my camera phone, hence the low quality.
The main attraction of the entire exhibit were the costumes. They had something from just about every ST series and every movie ever made. Classic KHAAAAAAAN of course above, minus Ricardo Montalbán's classic chest. The strangest costume was William Shatner's original Captain Kirk uniform which looked like it had been shrunk in the wash several times over.
My personal favorite however, were the set pieces. They had the arch and table from Main Engineering and the bridge from Star Trek: The Next Generation (my personal favorite series). I had been on a recreation of the Next Gen bridge at the Star Trek Experience in Las Vegas many years ago but you were only in the room for about two minutes and you weren't allowed to touch anything. I just about lost it when I entered the bridge and realized I could explore. The screens in the rear had moving computer read-outs on them and everything. My brother and I giggled at the padlock keeping the turbolift doors shut.
Speaking of pennies....Dabo anyone? There were tons of props being displayed as well and they were probably the most peculiar things to see. Most of them looked really cheap and beat up. Seriously, my toy tricorder looks more realistic. Some of the alien heads on display were impressive though. My favorite was, what I thought from a distance was Data's head from "Time's Arrow," but turned to be B-4. Close enough I guess.
