Star Trek the Tour Beams Down

I saw as part of the four installment big news blog post on Ensign Wesley Crusher’s (aka Wil Wheaton’s) blog that Star Trek the Tour will be making the rounds in the United States beginning in California next week.  The list of cities, and details of the experience are available on the official Star Trek website here.

From the looks of it online, it will be a lot like the Star Trek Exposition in London, except a thousand times cooler.  Now, don’t think I’m playa hatin’ on Star Wars.  My first love in SF is the fantastic space opera, Star Wars.  However, Star Trek the Tour appears to be much more thought out and executed than the Star Wars Exposition.

See you there (in my Darth Vader costume)!
