More Images From Premiere Of Star Trek Live June 14, 2010

by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: ST: Live , trackback

Last week we had a first look at an image from Star Trek Live, the new Trek-inspired live educational show which premiered at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida (with a traveling version also opening at the San Diego Fair). Today we have four new images from the weekend opening of the event. Check them out below.  


Star Trek Live

Here are four new images from Star Trek Live.

Under Attack

Eager to learn from Starfleet’s best and brightest, cadets assemble, anxious to prepare for their first day at the Academy. As they are introduced to the Academy, the Earth comes under attack from a renegade Romulan, leaving the fate of the future in the hands of cadets. STAR TREK LIVE™, a new interactive stage show based on the popular science-fiction franchise, is now showing at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. (click to enlarge)

A live Star Trek experience is surely pretty cool. Nice idea to tie into the new film, btw.


2. Imrahil - June 14, 2010

Wow, embarrassingly silly. Even as a kid I wouldn’t have wanted to sit through this.

3. John Gill - June 14, 2010

Nice, but Commander Christopher needs to roll his friggin’ sleeves down…

4. Surlaw The Mai - June 14, 2010

That Vulcan dude looks horrible…

…wait… what? A woman? Huh?

5. LL - June 14, 2010

I saw the show at the SD Fair…it was mediocre…good for little kids.. not for die hard fans…mixed Next Generation with Enterprise with scenes from the Star Trek 2009 movie.


Separately, at the “Home and Hobby Section” of the San Diego County Fair–someone there is displaying Star Trek collectibles there and won first prize.

6. Polly - June 14, 2010

I usually don’t have strong opinions like this, but I have to say:

It looks like crap!

7. MoPea - June 14, 2010

Why go with the “Enterprise” era uniform? That’s crap. Even people who know nothing about Star Trek will identify with the TOS era uniforms.

8. Anthony Pascale - June 14, 2010

Wow, so very sad

I think some people need to get some perspective. This is an educational show to teach kids about science that uses Star Trek as a hook. This isn’t a Broadway show for god’s sake.

9. agentm31 - June 14, 2010

I guess renegade Romulans are all that’s left as far as villains go in the star trek universe

10. Thorny - June 14, 2010

Sean Christopher? As in Sean Jeffrey Christopher who led, or will lead, the first Earth-Saturn Expedition? Maybe his great grandson?

11. rm10019 - June 14, 2010

#8 Anthony, a big Amen to that.

12. Paul Fitz - June 14, 2010

I would love to bring my nieces and nephews to this, Remember when there was educational fun like this was commonplace?
Well it has been a while, i’m glad to see Trek being used in a productive way and I think Gene Roddenberry would appreciate his creation being used in this way, to educate and interact with future scientists and explorers.

13. TJ Trek - June 14, 2010

MY take is, if they are going to do this, they should really go full speed. I don’t neccesarily mean with a huge story line or a huge cast of good actors, but…. make it an hour long, and actually go full speed with the science. It sounds like they are sticking to kids stuff. Not a huge problem, but beef it up for the big boys…you know. Talk a bit about space science in a little depth. Talk about how a star works, how life as we know it works. etc.

14. MarkT - June 14, 2010

Has everyone forgotten about plain old fun and learning? I would have eaten this up at a certain age and I think that’s the idea behind it.

Lighten up folks.

15. Gabriel Bell - June 14, 2010

8. So predictable. You’ve done an awesome job of trying to keep these threads as the most sane Trek “boards” anywhere. And they are. But being the most sane place to comment on Trek issues is like being the most trustworthy Vorta in the Gamma quadrant.

16. Capttravis - June 14, 2010

THIS IS A DISASTER! Actually a disaster was when, in the early ’90s, a troupe of actors (half of which were deaf) came to my middle school and performed a TOS/TNG crossover play where Kirk ends up on the bridge of the 1701-D. All I really remember is a deaf Kirk stumbling around a cardboard bridge set screaming ‘Spock, Bones, where are you!’ in that strange monotone. I’m not even sure what we were supposed to be learning…

17. Will_H - June 15, 2010

What’s up with those uniforms? One looks like its from the time-ship Relativity from VOY and the others from ENT.

18. Captain Conrad - June 15, 2010

I hope there is Trek memorabilia on display

19. Bren - June 15, 2010

17 – I think that’s the idea.

Voula has come from the same future as Captain Braxton to warn Christopher about a rogue Romulan altering the timeline.

One would assume (and hope) that she’s referring to Nero. It would at least be concievable that the Ent uniform (though I hate to count Ent as part of continuity) would still be around in Robau’s time.

If the story is well enough thought out, they could be the people responsible for at least one flavour of the Prime universe still existing. They could still teach some decent science in that context.

I don’t hold out much hope for this to be a significant contribution to Star Trek canon, though.

A Science show for kids, with a Star Trek hook, is GREAT! I’d have absolutely loved it at a certain age. I do hope they don’t dumb it down too much though. I’d have hated that at the same certain age.

I do hope they’re expanding the universe, rather than simply using it in a suprisingly knowledgeable way, as they appear to be doing.

16: Um, wow… I almost want to see that. You have to applaud them for the effort and the stones to pull it off.

20. CAPT KRUNCH - June 15, 2010

Im headed for Dollywood in July!…and I agree Anthony #8….get a grip people…this is sooooo why others think us TREKKERS are such freaks..geeks…whatever….stop it!!!

21. khaaan, the weasel - June 15, 2010

OH. MY. GOODNESS… This looks cheesy beyond compare…

22. Adrick - June 15, 2010

“I saw the show at the SD Fair…it was mediocre…good for little kids.. not for die hard fans…mixed Next Generation with Enterprise with scenes from the Star Trek 2009 movie.”

If something that combines elements from TNG and Enterprise with Star Trek ’09 is *not* something that would interest die-hard fans…then I find it hard to see what would…as a die hard fan, that’s exactly the sort of thing that would interest me, lol.

I think the implication of using Sean Christopher as a character is to connect present-day NASA with Star Trek’s universe, which I think is actually pretty clever. I’d be willing to guess that this is supposed to be the astronaut son of John Christopher, mentioned by name in “Tomorrow is Yesterday”. I’d imagine that the “time” of the live show is supposed to be either now or in the near future. Can anyone who has seen the show comment?

Yeah, it’s probably cheesy…but so are jumpsuits and color-coded uniforms and miniskirts and Trek fan film Kirks with Elvis hair…just because it’s cheesy doesn’t mean it’s a bad idea.

23. Buzz Cagney - June 15, 2010

Looks toe-curlingly bad to me.

24. DeShon Steinblatt - June 17, 2010

Science has no place in Star Trek!

25. Pat D - July 15, 2010

Saw this on Tuesday and I LOVED it. Both cast members were FANTASTIC.

26. HANNAH - October 24, 2010
