mamagaea: (Star Trek Party)
TREKKERS REJOICE!

copied from Wil Wheaton's blog [livejournal.com profile] wilwheaton

Last week, I mentioned one of those "so cool I can't talk about it" projects. Today, I can go ahead and reveal what it was: I composed that post about an hour before I put on pointy sideburns and a space suit, brought Lieutenant Commander Wesley Crusher back to life as the Assistant Chief Engineer of the USS Titan.

It's for Star Trek: The Tour, which starts in Long Beach on January 17th, where it's going to live for about a month before it goes on a national tour later this year.

In addition to the encounter thing that I'm in, there are some really cool things for Trekkies on this tour, including full-size recreations of the NCC-1701 and NCC-1701-D bridges (where you can trade some of your gold-pressed latinum for the opportunity to sit in the captain's chair and pose for a picture) corridors you can walk through, and more costumes and props than you could feed a Targ. Sadly, there is no Ten Forward where we can all have a drink on my officer's tab, but there is a killer app that I can't wait to try out: There is this thing where you step into a blue screen environment, and through the magic of teleprompters, multiple camera angles, and creative editing, perform in a mini episode of the original series, where you'll get to act with Kirk and Spock. I'm hoping that I can improvise some dialog with Kirk about his, uh, luxurious maine of carefully-styled hair.


HOLY CRAP! I'm SO THERE! :O SQUEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
