Great news for trekkies and sci-fi aficionados alike -- the Starship Foundation, a non-profit setting out to recreate the Star Trek Enterprise-D Bridge, which also encompasses a fully-interactive, educational science fiction exhibit, showcasing rare and celebrated props from several different sci-fi films and TV shows, will be exhibiting portions of the reproduced set at this year's comic con.
The foundation will also allow members of the media and celebrities to use chairs, computers, and other props from the bridge for interviews, including a replica of the captains chair famously used by Captain Picard during the seven year run of The Next Generation.
New Starship Foundation CEO Huston Huddleston had the following to say:
“We’re really excited to bring die-hard fans this chance to interact with fully-functioning, life-sized pieces of the Enterprise NCC-1701-D. Everyone working on the Enterprise-D Bridge Restoration is a lifelong Trekkie, so we can’t wait to share the joy and hard work that’s gone into restoring the greatest ship of the Federation Starfleet.”
We definitely can't wait to check it out for ourselves!
