Intrepid Member pre-sale May 4; General Public on-sale May 11

New York, NY (April 28, 2016) – To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will host Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience, an interactive exhibition that immerses visitors in the world of the beloved science fiction franchise. The experience will open to the public on Saturday, July 9 and remain open through October 31, 2016.

Tickets will go on sale for museum members starting May 4 and for the general public on May 11. Tickets will be available to purchase through the Museum’s website and at the Museum’s Welcome Center box office located at 46th Street and 12th Avenue. Entry tickets will be timed and advance purchase is strongly recommended.

“We are thrilled to host The Starfleet Academy Experience and share the fun and educational side of Star Trek with visitors,” said Susan Marenoff-Zausner, president of the Intrepid Museum. “Star Trek is a beloved franchise whose fan base spans generations, and we are excited to be a part of the 50th anniversary celebration.”

“Star Trek has had a profound influence on many technologies we use today, and the show continues to inspire innovation and science,” said Christoph Rahofer, CEO of EMS Entertainment and executive producer of the show. “With Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience, we want to engage our audience with the history of the future.”

Making its U.S. debut at the Intrepid Museum, the exhibition offers visitors the chance to experience life as a Starfleet Academy cadet, as they attend the Academy’s Career Day in the 26th century. After student orientation, cadets will visit nine zones focused on the training center’s specialties: Language, Medical, Navigation, Engineering, Command and Science. Following these interactions, cadets will be assigned a specialty and a demeanor based on their individual training. The Starfleet Academy Experience will be presented in a dedicated 12,000 square foot indoor space specially designed for the experience on Pier 86.

Die-hard Star Trek fans may recognize many of the props and costumes on display from the television show. In addition, there will be plenty of interactive activities and unique technology, including Leap Motion, voice recognition to communicate in Klingon, a Medical Tricorder table with RFID sensors, planet projection mapping, holograms and a target game using Star Trek‘s iconic phasers. The exhibition is produced by EMS Entertainment, the leader in interactive immersive exhibitions, and is under license by CBS Consumer Products.

This year marks the golden anniversary of Star Trek, one of the most internationally beloved science fiction franchises, featuring six television series and 13 feature films. The Intrepid Museum, home to the space shuttle Enterprise, will be the first stop on the U.S. tour for The Starfleet Academy Experience.

The Intrepid Museum will host a number of Star Trek-themed public programs to commemorate the 50th anniversary, including movie nights, themed Operation Slumbers (the Museum’s popular overnight experience), education programs, two Trek-focused summer camp weeks, themed Astronomy Nights and more.

The experience will be open Sundays–Thursdays from 10:00am–8:00pm and Friday–Saturday from 10:00am–9:00pm. Last entry will be one hour prior to closing. All tickets will be timed entry. Tickets will be available for $25 Adults, $18 Children, $23 Seniors and FREE for children 4 and under. Special discounted prices are available for groups of 15 or more.
