On July 20th the UK Channel CBS Action (which already shows the original Star Trek) will begin airing reruns of Star Trek: The Next Generation. And to promote this, they have started a quirky campaign featuring regular people showing their inner Trekkie. Check out some of the images below.
CBS Action "Live Boldly. Love Your Fan Side" TNG Campaign
UK cable/satellite channel CBS Action has launched a new campaign to promote Star Trek: The Next Generation which will begin to air nightly (M-F) on July 20th at 8pm. The campaign, by Studio Hansa, is designed to show Star Trek fans showing both their real life selves and their inner Trekkie. Here are a couple of the bus shelter ads from the campaign.

According to Studio Hansa, the effect for the ads was done with fans wearing specially tailored suits. They even have a development blog with behind the scenes pictures and video.
