Star Trek: The Exhibition Coming to Germany

After its current installation in Valencia, Spain wraps up Star Trek: The Exhibition will continue its tour through Europe and head to Germany. The travelling exhibit of props, costumes and replicas will open in Potsdam near Berlin in May 2011. More details and links below.


 

 

Star Trek: The Exhibition a Highlight of Filmpark Anniversary

Filmpark Babelsberg, a theme park dedicated to filmmaking and located on the premises of renowned film production studio Babelsberg, will celebrate its 20th anniversary next year with a special attraction. From May to October 2011, visitors can peek into the future with Star Trek: The Exhibition. The organizers promise an insight into Gene Roddenberrys Star Trek unheard-of in Germany.

Some readers may remember the Star Trek World Tour in Germany, which took place in Düsseldorf in December 1998 and January 1999 and in scale and scope comes closest to the upcoming exposition. Star Trek: The Exhibition will however focus more on exhibits and less on entertainment.

The exhibition unites pieces from all the all five Star Trek television series and 11 Star Trek feature films. Highlights include an original transporter room set, large-scale models of Voyager and the Enterprise NCC-1701, and a replica of the Enterprise-D bridge, where visitors will be able to sit down in Picard’s chair and enjoy the feeling of commanding a starship.

With an exhibition space of 1500 square meters, the Babelsberg installation of Star Trek: The Exhibition will occupy even more room than its current version in Valencia. The added space will be filled by additional items out of Paramount’s collection.

Star Trek: The Exhibition ("Star Trek: Die Ausstellung") will be on display in Filmpark Babelsberg in Potsdam, Germany from May 1st until October 3rd 2011. Additional information about Filmpark Babelberg is available at Filmpark-Babelsberg.de (in English and German) and more details about Star Trek: The Exhibition in Germany will be provided soon at www.dieausstellung.info, where visitors are currently treated to a brief teaser trailer.

Anyone want to start some rumors?

almost as good as when Noel Edmonds had shot dead Clive Anderson…

…ahhhh Chris Morris and “Brasseye”…pure genius!

You never know though, George might just do it! He doesn’t seem to want to let go of a lot of little things, does he?
Takei takes the Shat. We predicted here!

He was excellent as ever!

Pegg was almost as funny then as he was in the “Hamilton’s Breaks” episode of I’m Alan Partridge…”have you tried the Ladyboy?”…
I miss Norwich.
I miss England and its top quality comedy.
I miss the pubs.

A-Ha!

I also miss real Trek news. Lets be having some Pascale!

Apparently Tom Cruise is going to play a fleet Admiral in Trek XII. Can you believe it!!!!!

December 13, 2010 4:11 pm

Great news for German Trek fans. Just wondering if anybody has any info on the ships specifically the Voyager and Enterprise A models they look to be the restored Star Trek The Experience models. Anybody have any more pics or info on who restored them?

Trek really needs to improve its brand recognition over seas in pretty much every country Star Trek is shown outside the US if it want’s to compete on the global stage next to the likes of Star Wars, Batman and many of the other big franchises.

Bringing things like this over to countries outside of the US is good but a lot more needs to be done.

Will this exhibit ever travel to the US East coast or is that never going to happen? It has been stuck in California forever and now it is in Europe.

“Apparently Tom Cruise is going to be playing a fleet Admiral in Trek XII. Can you believe it!!!!!”

No, I don’t want to believe it. You’re probably joking, but even so, it’s no laughing matter. Man, I hope J.J Abrams DOES NOT CAST TOM CRUISE!!!

I do believe those are the restored models from the Experience.

The Museo de las Ciencias Princeipe Felipe is a badass building, by the way. It would make a great shooting location for Trek…

You urgently need to brush up your knowledge of Germany – not to mention your mastery of the German language… :)))

December 14, 2010 3:11 am

Yes!!! Finally!

Although I“m living in Bavaria, at the very south of Germany, I“ll try to make a trip up to Potsdam!

After all, there is a street named after me. LOL – or, to be more precise, it“s called “Mittelstrasse” (eng: Middle-Street”) which is essentially my familyname.

Can`t wait to see all those sets!

Hi Stephan, I was born and grew up in Bavaria – where do you live?

Yes! How many times did I have to gruntingly post something like “Damn! Why isn’t this available in Europe?”
But now the Exhibition is even coming to my country. Great news. I will be there.

Re 12: Actually, the current Merkel administration is almost as conservative as your GOP, though not nearly as much as the Tea Party.

re the East Coast, check the Wikipedia article; they will be in Louisville, Kentucky in Jan 2011. at least that’s a bit closer.

UK?

December 14, 2010 10:59 am

#22, we also had the Star Trek Adventure, which lasted for over a year and I think had more less the same exhibits as this current one.

http://memory-alpha.org/wiki/Star_Trek:_The_Adventure

But that was years ago now, so I’d welcome a Trek exhibition in London again, since it’s in Europe anyway.

It’ll never happen in New Zealand.

#31 (Holger) There was a Star Trek exhibition touring the UK and Germany in the mid-1990s with the German venues being Cologne (1996) and Berlin (1997-1998). Just follow the first link posted by Captain Braxton (#22) for further reference. I still remember this as I visited the exhibitions in both Cologne and Berlin. So this isn’t the first time a Star Trek exhibition is coming to Germany. Oddly, Henning Koonert doesn’t mention this in his article. Either he doesn’t know or he’s simply forgotten.
