Earlier in the year CBS announced they were going to sell off assets of the closed-down Star Trek: The Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton. TrekMovie just got details on on a ST:TE warehouse sale set for this Saturday in Las Vegas. Details below on how you can pick up a piece of Star Trek history (including a free gift for TrekMovie readers).
Assets from first ST: The Experience being sold – new experience still being planned
As noted in our first article on this sale, CBS says that they "remain committed to opening a new and exciting Star Trek attraction." Planning on that future is still underway with Neonopolis in Las Vegas. CBS has determined that most of the assets from the first ST: The Experience will not be needed for any future attraction and they will be sold off in a warehouse sale (this weekend) and an auction (this Summer). The sales are being conducted by Propworx, who handled the recent Stargate and Battlestar Galactica sales.
