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.
Star Trek: The Exhibition has been crisscrossing the country for the last couple of years and this weekend it's beaming down to the St. Louis Science Center in St. Louis, Missouri. The exhibition includes a full-size replica of the Enterprise-D bridge, the transporter from J.J. Abrams's 2009 film Star Trek, a replica captain's chair from The Original Series, plus tons of props & costumes form the 45 years of Star Trek.

From it's original incarnation, Star Trek: The Tour, Star Trek: The Exhibition has been all over the U.S. in the 2 years. From Hollywood to Philadelphia and several points in-between, Trek fans have been able to see and enjoy artifacts from all of the series and feature films.

Here's an idea, a Warp 11 / No Kill I battle of the bands to launch the exhibition. Nothing says Trek and Sacramento like a drunken Mugato or hard drinkin' Lincoln. We would make a special trip to see that.
