Recently the Tech Museum announced it was extended its engagement of Star Trek: The Exhibition, and today they have announced a contest where a lucky couple will get a Star Trek wedding packing to get married on the bridge of the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701, no A, B, C, or D). Details below.
Get married in the 23rd century
from press release
The Tech Museum is hosting a contest to select a lucky couple to get married – or renew their vows – on the U.S.S. Enterprise bridge from the original series in STAR TREK®: THE EXHIBITION.
Couples across the galaxy are eligible to win the ultimate wedding package, which includes exclusive use to the bridge during the ceremony; a private museum room for a reception; two-night¹s stay at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, and a two-tier, Star Trek-themed wedding cake from Bijan Bakery & Café.
To enter, couples simply submit a photo along with a few short paragraphs on why they should be picked to say "I do" or renew their vows on the bridge. Deadline for entries is February 3rd, with the winning couple receiving the highest tally of worldwide votes cast on our Facebook page from February 4th 10th.
The Tech Museum will announce the winning couple just before Valentine¹s Day. The celestial ceremony will take place sometime in March or early April. And in true Star Trek form, expect the couple and their wedding guests to appear in various Star Trek ensembles to make the wedding a truly interstellar event!
For complete package details on how to enter and contest rules, please visit the Tech Museum Facebook Page (and look for the CONTESTS tab at the top of the page).
The 2009 Star Trek Exhibition Wedding
The San Jose Tech Museum contest is similar to one held by the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, when they hosted one of the touring Star Trek: The Exhibition engagements, that one centered around a recreation of the bridge of the USS Enterprise D. The lucky couple of Trek fans Brad Siegel and Kate Erwin had a futuristic wedding to remember. You can see video clips of that at cinemacake.com
