Star Trek The Experience Warehouse Sale This Saturday In Las Vegas April 5, 2010

by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: Conventions/Events/Attractions,Merchandise , trackback

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.

When:     Saturday April 10th, 10 am – 3 pm

This summer CBS will conduct a Star Trek: The Experience auction during the Las Vegas Creation Star Trek Convention in August.

Look for an update on the auction in the future.

1. That One Guy - April 5, 2010

Curses…. if only I had the money to buy a Borg alcove….

2. Kayla Iacovino - April 5, 2010

Want want want want!

3. Nemesis was Awesome - April 5, 2010

I need a Borg alcove, I am really in need of regeneration!

4. MagicDan - April 5, 2010

Holy crap! I AM GOING TO BE IN VEGAS ON THE 10th!!!!!!!

Planned it a month ago and didn’t even know this was going to happen.

Wow. I am spinning in my chair right now! PAYDAY is this Friday!

Can it get any better?

Dibs on the chair!

Maybe I should buy a Bat’leth first, might need it ……..

5. Anonymous Coward - April 5, 2010

Well, I guess it’s a safe bet that the new Experience will be nothing like the Hilton installation.
I don’t think that a hall of plexiglass, white plastic, and bar-code scanners where the back-stage crew shines lights in your face will really compare…

If I had the money to buy one of those hydraulic shuttles, I’d probably already have place to put it…

6. Gary - April 5, 2010

I was married on the bridge back in 2006. Very sad. I will miss it.

7. Vernon Wilmer - April 5, 2010

And so there goes all of our stuff, scattered to the winds. Even my regeneration alcove. Closure.

Anyway, check out this stuff back in its hayday in my documentary series about the Experience: http://vernonwilmervideo.blip.tv/

8. Vernon Wilmer - April 5, 2010

P.S. – Ironic you can make out Suzie Plakson’s Klingon face in that wall panel photo above… she MC’d our closing day.

9. Paul Walker - April 5, 2010

10. Justin Toney - April 5, 2010

So does this mean that the Experience is gone forever?

11. Paul Walker - April 5, 2010

Re: 10 ……

NO the Experience is NOT Gone forever. if you re read the story Anythony mentioned that CBS has confirmed that there will be a NEW Star Trek Experience someday…

12. Jim Nightshade - April 5, 2010

Hey Vernon-hope u n April n everyone get to get your costumes back–let us know how it goes–im outta work no money to even go to vegas much less bid-would luv one of the quarks chairs at the bar that were really on the ds9 show-oh well good luck to all at the auction-also luved yer series vernon n also was great for sheri n i to meet u and april that one evening a couple weeks before u closed when april intoduced u as the experience historian–also a pic of me is in the experience 360 program under quarks bar and dedicated patrons-im far right by the ice machine borg elevator-was waiting for april to finish working n sheri musta been away playing slots at that moment haha–look forward to more of yer series-jeff n sheri–

13. Viking - April 5, 2010

Crap. At those prices, I’d be wheeling out a pallet o’ goodies on a forklift, but Vegas on such short notice is a 9.5 on the G.U. (Geographically Unreachable) Scale. I’m sure something will pop up on eBay, though.

14. Vernon Wilmer - April 5, 2010

Thanks Jeff – doing the series is my pleasure. It’s going to be a sad occasion to see our stuff being sold, and I still don’t know if Paramount will bother getting us our uniforms back but we’ll see. As far as I’m concerned, I have everything I wanted to take away from the Experience, infact I came away with the most precious asset it ever had.

15. Vernon Wilmer - April 5, 2010

P.S.

Hey kids – check out my friend Bryan’s virtual tour of the Experience at startrek360.com

…and of course my Experience documentary series at http://vernonwilmervideo.blip.tv/

16. jsilva1364@aol.com - April 5, 2010

hey i am in that virtual tour see my comment above haha-well thanx vernon i am dling part 3 as we speak and i have part 1 n 2 on my ps3 hd and will add 3 to it-cant wait to watch it vernon-thanx again bud..

17. AJ - April 5, 2010

I find news like this depressing. Yes, I want a Borg alcove, but I want it to be somewhere where it generates interest in the series, rather than in my basement.

Star Trek seems to be the only franchise still burying its dead while it’s more successful than ever.

18. ryanhuyton - April 5, 2010

What we really need is a Star Trek museum. Where people can go to see the props, sets, costumes and models. A bit too late for that idea though, since the majority of stuff is in private collections.

19. Dave - April 5, 2010

it’s a shame that someone (e.g. Paramount | CBS) can’t combine the Star Trek Experience PLUS the Star Trek exhibition (travelling around the country)—Combine it into 1 BIG Museum/Rides/Attraction and have it permanently housed at Paramount in Hollywood or somewhere in San Francisco or somewhere in Vegas….or at Universal Studios or some other major theme park or at the Sci-Fi museum in Seattle..

(and maybe throw in a few extra things-exhibits, etc.)–and have a big/worldwide Star Trek convention held there yearly (not a Creation Convention–which over the last decade have done a poor job of running the Star Trek fandom–time for some new blood)

Thoughts ?

20. Vardonir - April 6, 2010

@ # 18 and # 19.
Exactly! With a Star Trek museum or something, at least anyone can some see the history of Trek. Especially those who were never around to see it (i.e., too young to watch the older series/never saw the show in production, or never able to go to conventions, or both, which is my case). Also, it’ll be easier to find.
I believe there’s a Star Wars museum somewhere, but I remember that it was not open to the public. Why can’t ‘Trek have an equivalent?

On topic:
I want one of those Borg alcoves. Okay, maybe 4. :D

21. scifib5st - April 6, 2010

Wait a minute, I’m going to be in Vegas this weekend… I planed it a month ago also. I was’nt planning on driving back… time to buy that Transporter and wire it up to the “Flux capacitor” to get the stuff home!

22. Woulfe - April 6, 2010

About the selling off of “The Experience” and what to expect in the future.

1. TNG is no longer relevant thanks to the new movie, deal with it.
2. Les Moonves is eating crow thanks to Star Trek’s success.
( He hates Sci-Fi with a passion & Star Trek most of all. )
3. If there is a new Experience on the way you can bet it’ll be TOS centric.
4. CBS has to be careful as throwing money around on this is a huge deal.
5. Folks still don’t understand just how Trek is split up ‘tween CBS / Para.

That last one is the most true, even I don’t know where the split is at.

23. RM10019 - April 6, 2010

Vernon, great to have a chance to thank you again for you work in making the Experience what it was, and your great documentary.

24. Tammy - April 6, 2010

My brother was married there in 2002. He loved this picture that was being sold there and regrets not purchasing it. It was a futuristic view of NYC Star Trek theme and it cost about $3000. I have tried to find it online or even a poster of it and find nothing. Does anyone know what I am talking about or where to find it?

25. Randy H. - April 6, 2010

#24 — Are you talking about a “Borgified” New York City? I saw that there for purchase a few years back. I was a concept painting for “First Contact” that was not used in the actual production.

26. Tammy - April 6, 2010

Thanks Randy, yes, I believe its the same. It was a gorgeous picture and almost breathtaking to see the twin towers. I have googled it to find nothing. I would love to surprise him for a birthday in finding it but I just cant find it. if anyone knows the name, I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

27. Evan J. Malik - April 6, 2010

#24 Hi! Always loved the painting myself. It’s called “New Borg City” . If the below link works this is a place that sells various sizes of them:

http://search.cartserver.com/search/search.cgi?topofpage=%23top&cartid=a-7265&category=All&maxhits=20&keywords=new+borg+city&go=GO!

If you Google New Borg City you will see other results as well. I don’t know if they will have it this weekend, but I’m going to be there to check things out! :)

#14 Thanks again for your great series! Loved your appearance on The Ugly Couch show! :)

28. Tammy - April 6, 2010

OMG!!! Thanks Evan!! That is awesome. He is going to be shocked that I found it. Its been 4 years since we have seen and it will be a nice surprise for him. Thanks for all your help Evan and Randy. I am sorry to see that it wont be at Hilton next time we visit. Much success on the sale and to all.

29. DS9 IN PRIME TIME - April 6, 2010

Their should have been more advanced warning. This is the first i am hearing about it. And why can we not buy online… i dont have time to fly to vagus

30. WGW - April 6, 2010

Is this an auction or is this a warehouse sale?

31. Nate In Retail - April 6, 2010

There’s still stuff left to auction?
I thought Chad Boutte’s ran-sacking of the place was pretty thorough.

32. Jane - April 6, 2010

DARN IT!!! I’ve never been so mad at myself for being broke at the moment!!!

crap! crap! crap!

33. Nick Cook - April 6, 2010

Damn, wish I could be there to buy a few pieces. :(

Still miss the place. Vegas just wasn’t the same on our last trip.

34. tbk1701 - April 6, 2010

Is the Borg Alcove upside down?

35. Captain Hackett - April 6, 2010

Oh damn. I wish they wait until middle of this July when I will be in Las Vegas. :(

36. Vernon Wilmer - April 6, 2010

LOL NATE!!!

37. D. - April 6, 2010

I just want Quarks back. :(

38. John from Cincinnati - April 6, 2010

I heard the new Experience is going to be heavy on the original series.

That is fantastic.

39. Nate In Retail - April 6, 2010

At least I made Vernon laugh. And yes, the alcove is upside down.

40. Luke - April 6, 2010

I’m just so happy that my family and I were able to, um, experience the Experience the one time we ever went to Vegas.

Got a picture of me in Picard’s chiar and everything, very skinny, very young, and very thrilled. My dad got in an argument with a Klingon in the gift shop, we sat at the bar at Quark’s (which was orgasmic, as DS9 is far and away my favorite series), and we questioned a Ferengi on the Rules of Acquisition. Impressively, he knew every random one we mentioned. They had a well trained and selected cast.

Thanks to all involved for making it a fullfilling journey. Makes me wish there could be an entire Star Trek theme park.

41. Jim Nightshade - April 6, 2010

I remember the Borg NYC painting as well. It was awesome….Whatever Paramount/CBX do with the NEW ST the Experience I hope they realize that what made the old Experience was the dedicated employees and actors and crew members who worked there like Vernon, Quarksbartender, April et al—Sadly they are one of a kind unique and now scattered to the winds–I will always and 4ever remember how wonderful they all were….and hope the new crew they get will be even half as dedicated and talented as they were…..and also hope any of the old crew available and wanting to be hired does get hired….if it ever comes to pass….I salute you all marvelous crew—and I have watched the last day video in my TNG Bluray collection many times, seeing the love you all shared, with tears in my eyes each time I watch…and I hope for a rebirth of the experience rising Phoenix like out of the ashes….
If the new one is more jj and tos centril I will miss Quarks and all the TNG touches the Experience had….and still think there is plenty of relevence to that era….mho

42. LT. BAILEY - April 6, 2010

Vernon, we should get together with Gerry & Francine, buy some more fixtures for Quarks 1.5 to really dress it up since Gerry has the grand piece of all time. I hope you do get you Borg costume back, same goes for April, Mark, Tom, etc. I still cannot thank you all for making STTE what is was at the Hilton and it is my fondest wish that you can help contribute in creating the next gen of STTE at Neonopolis. The Mild Meld will be on me!

43. Vernon Wilmer - April 6, 2010

Thanks Jim Nightshade, and I agree with everything you said about the eventual new Experience.
And yes Lt. Bailey, Gerry’s on it, but no Borg gets their costumes back because they were all destroyed after the closing. CBS deemed them health hazzardous, and believe me they were after 5 years!
As for the rest, I have no idea what the new STTE will be themed like, but whatever it is it will be a new home for us to all gather in – that’s the important thing. We, the crew & the fans, made that place what it was – it won’t matter what the new one looks like. And there are many of us including myself who intend to go back to work there if they’ll have us.

44. Justin Toney - April 6, 2010

I think it will do the fans justice if they 1) Recreate the Klingon Encounter Ride

2) During the simulator ride, they shoot a photo torpedo directly at the Hilton and blow it up.

45. Oktoberfest - April 6, 2010

@18 That was the Hilton STE. Lots of props from TV and film, and a completely immersive experience. My annual pilgrimage during Spring Break was MLB Spring Training in Phoenix, then a short drive to Vegas for some Trek fun. Now I can’t watch a baseball game without missing STE. Quark’s Bar was a riot.

46. FSL - April 6, 2010

Thanks for the loving videos, Mr Wilmer. Loved the experience. Only been there twice. But the actors really made it what it is. Hope the new experience will be up soon, and you guys will be back in the future.

47. Jim Nightshade - April 6, 2010

Ok lt bailey where is quarks 1.5? I almost went to vegas last week but got sick at last minute–iz there a place u meet? spacequest casino?

48. Vernon Wilmer - April 7, 2010

Spacequest is the usual meeting place these days for everyone involved with STTE, but Quark’s 1.5 is unfortunately for most, an undisclosed private residence where only a priveledged few can go and bask under an actual Quark’s lighted sign… ahhh…..

49. Zminus10 - April 7, 2010

Although I enjoyed visiting STTE, having it located in Las Vegas never felt quite right to me. In my opinion, I feel that the new Star Trek attraction should reside at one of the theme parks in California or Florida.

Also, the fact that their selling off the older props most likely indicates that they’re moving forward with an updated, fresher design for the new location.

50. Al Hartman - April 7, 2010

There ought to be one in Atlantic City for us east Coast folk.

CBS/Paramount is leaving a lot of money on the table having only one location.

51. Edwardo - April 7, 2010

I’m glad I got to go to STTE twice (once when operated by Paramount Parks, and once under Cedar Fair). It was definitely an experience. Had 2 great bar tenders at Quarks, total geeks. I miss it, and even though I do hope a new one comes, I’m sure it’ll be quite different. But at least I got to experience the original, and twice.

55. Vernon Wilmer - April 7, 2010

Nice pix Edwardo!

Here ya go Dubb: http://www.toywiz.com/startrekenergydrink.html

56. Dave "Kalel" MacLean - April 7, 2010

Shame they are not having a way some people could take part or get something online. Not everyone is able to drop everything at a drop of a hat to go there. Back in 2002 when Nemesis came at theatres my friend and I won a trip there and had a good time despite they not having any special events over the weekend. Would like to get a few more things.

57. Lt. Bailey - April 7, 2010

# 55 Vernon,

I bought a can of that Romulan Ale energy drink for Gerry as the same time we came over with the six packs of the Romulan Ale that was sold at STTE. While I have yet to try it, perhaps I might get some more to say I did try. I am sad to say that Bev Mo does not have any more of the R.A in the cases for sale. Other wise I would have bought more to give you some botles to fill up the cardboard 6 pack carrier I gave you.

Didn’t Quarks make a drink that had some kind of energy drink? I seem to recall that from the menu or maybe I am fuzzy from all of the Mind Melds drinks.

58. Justin Toney - April 7, 2010

Does anyone know if you can still purchase a bottle of Romulan Ale or Klingon Blood Wine?

59. Propworx-Shelley - April 8, 2010

Hey guys… Shelley from Propworx here! This is a warehouse sale in preview for our Auction at the Creation show in August. These items are all marked for SALE not auction.

Don’t worry, there will be items available at our live auction in August. The auction will also be online so EVERYONE will have a chance to bid! TOS, all the movies, all the series, everything! We will keep you updated on our website and of course, through Anthony at TrekMovie!

http://www.propworx.com

Now where did my mug of Romulan Ale go?

60. Craig Paup - April 9, 2010

“…infact I came away with the most precious asset it ever had.”

Wow!!! You got the big Enterprise-D??!!!!!

62. jon j - June 3, 2010

you could tell that the star trek experience was hittin its due date, I watched vernon wilmers behind the scenes( excellent job vernon!!!!) and just some of the gear they were using was ancient!! like that REAR PROJECTION TV that was being used near the borg waiting area with the fans!! made me laugh out loud! It took up soooo much room, and in 2008 it should have easily been replaced with a plasma or l.c.d, but alas i imagine it just wasnt in the b udget anymore!! Th e heart of that attraction truley was thet actors and staff!!! I wish i was there to have seen it…i didnt even know it was there!!!

jon j

63. Quint Magos - July 19, 2010

Once you start selling off the family silver you’ve got a problem there…but fortunately most of this stuff is made of plastic anyway, and hence needs recycling quick.
