It pays to be an exhibitionist!

Where is the ignore button..
I wish them luck!

Actually, it pays to sell an exhibitionist….

Will they finally allow taking pictures?

Harry. How would you know about that.
Oh. Never mind Harry.

No pix?? Are you referring to EMS or STTE? I attended the first showing back in 2008 in San Diego and could take unlimited pix. Even met the Okudas – two of the nicest people I’ve ever met.


Not if you’re Anthony Weiner!


…..and that’s the long and short of it!

This thing keeps changing hands but it will never be as good as the first version that was in Long Beach, was decently priced, had both bridge replicas, and didn’t have all the extra charges to do anything

Just give me the TOS bridge and let me sit in the Captains chair for a minute or two. Then I can die happy.

Hopefully they can pick up the pace of the tour. I remember when it was Star Trek: The Tour; has it stayed The Tour it would have been to Rochester, NY years ago but I’m still waiting.

It is interesting that this EMS is behind the CSI experience in Vegas. Does this mean they would be behind a new ST experience also in Vegas??? One can hope.

Good for STTE, but I’m still waiting for the thing to come to NY as was promised by the original exhibitors. Seeing as it keeps changing hands, I doubt this thing will ever get near NY. It seems to never leave the west coast of the US, and with it changing hands every two or so years, it never will. I won’t be surprised if it ever comes to within driving distance of Long Island.

I’m going to the 1 at Kennedy next weekend, never got to see it in Vegas or anywhere else for that matter.Excited to say the least.Not too far of a drive from Tampa.WOOHHOOO!

all my best
