Star Trek The Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton closed its doors in September 2008 and earlier this year much of the attraction was auctioned off by CBS, but one piece remains. The original sign for ST: The Experience is still up at the Hilton, and some former Experience cast members are trying to preserve it. See the local news report below.
Saving the Star Trek: The Experience Sign
While there is still hope that there will be a new Star Trek: The Experience built in Las Vegas sometime in the future, it is very unlikely it would require new signage, begging the question as to what will happen with the original sign that is still up at the Las Vegas Hilton. Former Star Trek: The Experience cast members Vernon Wilmer and April Herbert are trying to save the sign. Here is a video report on their efforts from Las Vegas’ 8 News Now.
TrekMovie will keep an eye on this effort and report any updates.

As for if or when there will be a new Star Trek: The Experience, while CBS has said they are committed to creating a new Star Trek-themed attraction in Las Vegas, so far there is now confirmed plans or dates.
