    They should make a full Star Trek experience, something where you can play as a Star Trek hero, fighting artificially intelligent robots that look like realistic Star Trek aliens!

    What could go wrong?

    My dad and I traveled there a few times. I had so much fun. One time we tricked my grandfather into going on the main experience ride. He thought he was just looking at an exhibit. He was surprised to say the least when things started happening. The last time we went was shortly before the Borg Invasion opened. Fortunately, I was in the gift shop and overheard someone recruiting people to test out the experience, and my dad and I got to see it early. I still remember eating at Quark's Bar and eating Geordi's Nanite Pizza. I'd love to go back and do it over again.

    I miss it, too.

    Las Vegas holds very little appeal to me ("you can't lose if you don't play"), but I've been there a few times, most notably helping my best friend videotape several figure skating competitions (ISI "Recreational" competitions, not the serious stuff). And being a fellow ST geek, he treated the entire crew to an evening at the "Star Trek Hilton" as I called it.

    I rather enjoyed speaking Klingonaase to the Klingon wait-staff in Quark's. But I didn't go for the live gagh.

    For those who didn't have the chance, or who had forgotten, the Klingon attraction was a pre-show followed by a motion simulator; the Borg attraction was a pre-show followed by a "4D" film, rather in the same vein as Disney's It's Tough to be a Bug.

    I enjoyed the Klingon attraction rather more than the Borg one. Neither Borg nor "4D" shows do much for me (once was more than enough for It's Tough to be a Bug at Walt Disney World; I didn't bother with the Disney's California Adventure version at all).

    Observation: When I was in Las Vegas for one of those skating competitions, held in a hotel with its own ice rink, I walked through the hotel's casino a lot. And I noticed that there were some really wacky slot machine themes (I think I saw a ST slot somewhere). Biggest surprise of all was a "Sea-Monkeys" slot machine. Who would have imagined a slot machine with a brine shrimp theme?

    I would absolutely go and rectify the fact that I never went originally.

    Has anyone been to see Operation Enterprise at Movie Park Germany? THAT seems to me to be the closest thing to Star Trek: The Experience that we have anymore, and IMO it looks even better! :D

    I might pay for a Star Trek version of the Star Wars hotel.

    It’s better to prioritize one’s Star Wars fandom until Disney buys Star Trek. Why waste time reminiscing?
