Are there any Star Trek remnants left at the Las Vegas (formerly Hilton) Hotel?

I was at the Las Vegas Hilton..(now Las Vegas Hotel) 3 years ago, and you could still see the warp core and the dilithium chamber and some of the panels that were part of the Star Trek and space theme... and even the giant "Star Trek: The Experience" sign was still hung on the back of the building. Is there any of that left. I'm going back, but I'll only stay if there are at least some tiny scraps of star trekiness there at all.

Most likely.  Has anyone been there recently.  Is this still there?: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gc7GSg742V4

What happened to TheOldGuard's post?



"After 3 years, everything should be gone by now. They wasted no time in removing the exhibit the day after it closed. In fact, a group of fans helped take down the Enterprise at the entrance to prevent it from just being broken up and discarded like much of the set was. There was talk that the Experience would be moved up to Fremont Street, but the deal never closed."



Anyways...just got back and I'm happy to report there is still a decent amount of trek stuff there!  Of course it's not called "Star Trek" It's called "Space Quest"  But it's clearly the warp core chamber, the dilithium crystal spinning in the matrix, and most of all Quarks Bar inside all the DS9 bulkheads and clearly star trek entryways. There is a DS9 schematic  that still hangs on the wall, and the bathrooms are trek themed as well.  I will post pics of what's still there soon.  (Plus the LVH was $28/night to stay!!!!)  It was the closest to Trek Graceland that I could come.

That was such a perfect venue for Star Trek fans.  It's so sad it has been dismantled.
