Time is running out! Our sci-fi adventure closes May 28

Get ready to activate your transporter and beam straight to Liberty Science Center to begin an out-of-this-world adventure: Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience*.

In this interactive, immersive exhibition based on one of the world’s most popular sci-fi series, you’ll step into the shoes of a newly minted cadet in the 26th century. As you travel through nine different zones, you’ll receive the necessary science, engineering, medical, and command training to navigate your way from orientation through graduation.

Both Trekkies and non-Trekkies will be engaged by the science behind the science fiction. Learn how Star Trek paved the way for many of today’s cutting-edge technologies—such as a functional tricorder, NASA’s warp drive theory, and experiments involving phasers and teleporters—and even get a glimpse into the future of Star Trek science.

Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience will be at LSC through May 28, 2018.

*Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience is a superpremium exhibition for which there is an additional admission fee. Ask about the Star Trek Premium Pass or Star Trek Combination Pass at the Box Office, or get details here.
