To boldly go…to the home of fish ‘n’ chips, donkey rides and garish neon lights.

Star Trek is heading to Blackpool this year as the property celebrates its 50th anniversary with a major exhibition for fans and tourists.

Under license by CBS Consumer Products, Star Trek: The Exhibition will be held on Blackpool’s famous Golden Mile from Thursday, June 30th and will open daily throughout the year.

The exhibition promises to take audiences on a journey through the 50-year history of Star trek, with original props, costumes and scripts that have never previously ben seen in Europe.

Fans will also get the chance to step aboard a recreation of the iconic bridge from The Original series.

Billed as the UK’s biggest family resort, Blackpool’s Golden Mile attracts around 13 million visitors each year, all of whom will be able to bring the exhibition to life via a new augmented reality app that allows visitors to appear transported.

From Friday, September 2nd, Blackpool’s famed illuminations will showcase a new light feature on the golden Mile, celebrating Star Trek.

Paul Gregg, Apollo resorts Blackpool Ltd promoter, said: “After many months of negotiation, Apollo is delighted to bring a unique concept to Blackpool.

“This is the first time a major holiday destination anywhere in the world has celebrated a movie franchise or entertainment brand enjoying a 50 year history.

Star Trek will meet all expectations of a Blackpool visitor with an exclusive exhibition which boasts many never seen before items. A section of the world famous illuminations will feature the much-loved captains of Star Trek.

“More exciting activity within the resort is yet to be announced.”
