This summer, visitors to Kennedy Space Center will be able to participate in Star Trek Live, a new stage show.
Star Trek Live melds special effects, space technology and audience interaction in a half-hour production from CBS Consumer Products and Mad Science Productions.
Star Trek Live will be appearing at Kennedy Space Center beginning June 11.
Star Trek Live will allow audience members to “join Starfleet Academy” where they will be catapulted into an adventure featuring special effects, science, audience interaction and on-screen appearances from Captain Kirk and Spock themselves, with clips from the 2009 Star Trek XI film enhancing the experience.
The audience member “cadets” will prepare for their first day at Starfleet Academy, but their introduction is rudely interrupted by an attack from a Romulan renegade. It’s up to the cadets to adapt to living and working in space, and to figure out what has happened and how to fix it as the future of the Federation will be in their hands.
There will be five performances scheduled daily at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, the cost of which is included in the KSC regular admission price.
