“This technology is so cool; it’s an interactive way for fans to have some fun,” says Kandrix Foong, director of The Calgary Expo, who spent two months planning the concept in partnership with Vulcan Tourism. “It’s just one aspect of the celebration for the 25th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation and the cast reunion activities we have planned during the weekend of April 27-29” at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo, the highlight of which will be a reunion of all nine principal cast members of The Next Generation.
CBS Outdoor has donated a third bus shelter that will be on display at The Calgary Expo from April 27-29. It will be in the Vulcan Tourism (Star Trek Museum) booth area for fans to enjoy for free. Following The Calgary Expo, the transporter and its software will be relocated to Vulcan, Alberta, as a permanent and interactive display just in time for Spock Days in June.
The shelters will be available for beaming now through April 30. Visit www.calgaryexpo.com for details.
