In 2008 I visited The Star Trek Experience at The Las Vegas Hilton.It was awesome.The Experience consisted of two walk through rides(one was Borg themed)and a shuttlecraft 3D ride at the end of each ride.You actually were on the Enterprise being beamed aboard(which was really cool,lots of magic tricks)and running through hallways and a very bumpy turbo lift ride to the Bridge because the Enterprise was under attack...AAAAAAH!! :)
The Experience also included a Star Trek museum with authentic costumes and props from various Star Trek T.V shows and films.
The entrance to The Experience had HUGE lit Star Trek ships hanging from the ceiling.They even had Mr.Spocks torpedo coffin in one of the hallways.It wasn't enclosed in glass or anything.You could literally touch it.
I took a behind the scenes tour.Gretchen,our tour guide explained that they had to tether the torpedo shut(yes,it opened)because fans would climb in it and jump out and scare approaching guests.
I returned later that year to find the ride had closed.I took a few pics of the dismantling of the Huge models in the lobby.It was a great ride.
I had my picture taken on the Bridge used for photo ops.Gretchen explained that many of the components of the photo op Bridge were "hand me down" components from the studio after filming use.
Hope you enjoy.

 

These Borg were animatronic...my flash interferred with how spooky and lit up they were.They observed you as you stood in line for the ride :)

The Changeling.One of my fav TOS episodes.

After the ride had closed :(

De Man himself and yours truly after a show he was on tour with...it was an awesome show too :)

Walter Koenig and yours truly at the Calgary Expo 2013.

This was pretty cool. This Borg chamber was actually screen used.Paramount donated it to the ride for photo ops :)
