Standing on the Bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise [VIDEO]

Enterprise D and Bird of Prey

There's nothing quite like it. It was August 2008, just two weeks before the closing of the Star Trek Experience in Las Vegas, NV and there I was standing on the bridge of the starship Enterprise. It's an incredible feeling for a life-long Star Trek fan. Now this was the bridge of the Galaxy Class starship Enterprise NCC-1701-D as featured on Star Trek: The Next Generation, not the original bridge from the original series, but it was no less exciting at the time. 21 years after we first saw Captain Picard command from it, relaunching Star Trek back on television, there I was standing on what seemed to be an exact replica of the television set.

I attended last year for the New Media Expo 2008 in Las Vegas, NV and found it enlightening to be around like-minded individuals working in new media.

Are You Experienced?

As I write this, the Star Trek Experience is set to close forever in just over a week from now. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to experience the Star Trek Experience just prior to it's closing.
