Special Exhibit - Star Trek Bridge Set

LoneStarCon 3 is delighted to host a recreation of the Star Trek bridge (Original Series version!) as a Special Exhibit.

When the original Star Trek series was originally released for sale on video tape in the mid 1980s, Paramount Studios ran a contest for video stores across the country to see who could come up with the most creative promotional idea. The video store in Houston - Audio Video Plus - won that contest with their full size re-creation of a portion of the bridge set.

The re-creation includes the communications panel (the one directly behind the captain), the captain's chair, and the navigation panel. All the lights and screens on both panels are functional, including the two screens above the Communications panel where you generally saw various space images.

The bridge set will be set up in the exhibits hall at LoneStarCon 3. Members will be able to sit in the captain's chair (come on, you know you've always wanted to!) for a photo opportunity during parts of the day when the exhibit is staffed.
