Star Trek: The Exhibition Now In Vancouver Canada Until Sept 3rd

If you’re anywhere near Vancouver you still have time to go see Star Trek: The Exhibition at the Pacific Nation Exhibition. It continues its run through September 3rd and has tons of goodies to see. 

The exhibit makes it first-ever Canadian stop at the Pacific National Exhibition, which continues until Sept. 3. There are 46 years of Star Trek history on display, including sets from the series, filming models, props, costumes and more from all five series and 11 feature films.

Tony Doblin, director of operations for the travelling exhibit, said there are more than 300 pieces of memorabilia, including Captain Kirk’s chair from the original series.

There’s a 10-foot replica of the Enterprise ship, prop weapons, phasers and an array of uniforms.

“All these amazing things that back then, in the ‘60s, were so totally so far ahead of their times. If you look at the original communicator, it’s the original Motorola flip phone,” Doblin said. “It’s an incredible exhibition.”

PNE describes the exhibit:

2012 marks the return of the PNE Feature Pavilion showcasing the new Star Trek Exhibit brought in by EMS Exhibits from Vienna Austria. This expansive exhibit has a footprint of almost 20,000 square feet. This Pavilion harkens back to the days when the PNE was known for its incredible walk through exhibits. The Star Trek Exhibit will take you through the bridge of the Starship Enterprise and feature a display of original costumes, masks and ship models. You will see firsthand the imagination, artistry, technology and meticulous craftsmanship that have made Star Trek the most enduring science fiction franchise in history. There will be multiple photo opportunities including Captain Kirk’s Chair, the Transporter Room or a picture with your favourite character in front of a green screen (photos available for purchase). The Exhibit will also feature a Star Trek store with all types of memorabilia to begin or add to your collection.
