- Enter a rookie, and leave a Starfleet Officer
- Set your phasers to fun! Sample props, turn yourself into a hologram, and learn about the fictional gadgets being turned into today's reality
- Take a journey through Starfleet training, just like Spock, Kirk, Picard and all the others would have done. A special wristband charts your progress and gives you a space-themed career choice at the end!
Work it like Kirk as you launch yourself into the Starfleet Academy and undertake the training required to make you a valued member of the Starfleet - just like Kirk, Spock, Picard and the gang. This interactive extravaganza features futuristic gadgets aplenty and takes place on a real-life aircraft carrier. But you'd better get in quick because this is a rare treat for Trekkies in honor of the sci-fi classic's Golden Anniversary. That's 50 whole years of getting beamed up in one place!
Your time on aircraft carrier 'USS Intrepid' will give you the chance to follow in Spock's 26th-century footsteps at Starfleet Academy. You'll enter a cadet, but after experiencing this interactive exploratory exhibit, the Academy will know exactly what future the future holds for you.
Never been into Star Trek? Doesn't matter! Using a tricorder, firing a phaser, and sitting in the captain's chair are all thrilling - even for a non-Trekker. And at the end of your time here you can add 'Graduate of Starfleet Academy' to your CV, then sit back and watch old episodes of The Next Generation as those job offers pour in!
Speaking of jobs, here at the Starfleet Academy you'll try activities in seven different Star Trek fields (including navigation, speaking Klingon, and commanding the bridge). A special wristband charts your progress and at the end you'll get assigned the specialization that best suits your skills.
If this sounds a lot like school, don't worry: it's actually a spacebarrel full of spacefun. From practicing with phasers to diagnosing a Klingon using a tricorder, there's plenty of hands-on activity. Time will fly at warp speed.
Can you even think of a more awesome way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the venerable science-fiction franchise? Of course not. Boldly go. Now, while you still can.

It was pretty cool. But unfortunately, some of the exhibits were broken which meant lines on a day where the venue was not that crowded. There is no heat, so make sure you dress warmly.
It was obvious that a lot of work, effort, and research went into the creation of this exhibit. The interactive features like the transporter were fun. The "data collection" wrist band allowed you to "record" much of your experience and have it sent to you via email. All in all it was a great exhibit. The only downsides were an insufficient number of benches (it takes 2-3 hrs to go through the entire exhibit) and the prices in the gift shop (which are about twice what they should have been). The items offered, however, were nice. They should have had more of a variety of T-shirt designs and sizes. All in all, it was well worth the price of admission and thoroughly enjoyable!
I had a great time. Only one kiosk didn't work but they fixed it right away.
It was a sometimes interactive but always engaging trek (yes, I know) into the world of this wonderful series and its progeny. I would recommend it to any fan of Roddenberry's universe. Highlight: filming a scene where you are in a transporter tube, and the visual shows you, well, being transported. Great special effect.
It was very nice.
I really liked the exhibits but some of them were not working. We were lucky that it was not crowded because if it was, we would have had to wait a long time to use the ones that did work.
Great! As a fan-I loved it. Live long and Prosper!
The purchase of the tickets was easy and fast.
Easy purchase, scanned off the phone. Greta day.
