Hi, Everyone.

The Axanar / Paramount / CBS debacle has claimed another fan production.  Star Trek: New Voyages - Phase II is calling it quits.

However, all is not lost for James Cawley who started New Voyages back in 2003.  Apparently he has negotiated a deal with CBS to allow his very-accurate filming sets to continue on where they are in Ticonderoga, NY as a commercial tourist attraction starting July 30th.  I'm sure CBS will get a cut of whatever money is generated.  Although I personally never much enjoyed New Voyages, Cawley's dedication, love, and care for Star Trek was always very obvious.  Check out http://startrektour.com for more details.

Now with this development, it really creates a perfect storm for a 2016 Summer Star Trek 50th anniversary trip to the New York area:

  • Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum (600 Independence Ave SW, Washington, DC 20560) - https://airandspace.si.edu - restored 11-foot Enterprise filming miniature.
  • Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum (Pier 86, W 46th St & 12th Ave, New York, NY 10036) - http://www.intrepidmuseum.org/Startrek.aspx - fan-restored full-size shuttlecraft Galileo mock-up with the NASA Space Shuttle Enterprise right next to it!
  • James Cawley's Star Trek Set Tour (Ticonderoga, NY - more details to come) - http://startrektour.com - tour the bridge, sick bay, engineering, briefing room, transporter room, and the corridors.  Props will be displayed as well.

As Romulan Ambassador Nanclus said in Star Trek VI..."There will never be a better time."

"They've done studies, you know.  60% of the time, it works every time."

I visited the Star Trek Set Tour in Ticonderoga, NY, and let me just say....it was incredible!  It REALLY felt like you were on the ship!  They even had the background sound effects playing during the tour.  WELL worth the effort to see this thing, and I will be returning soon.

Here are some pictures I took.....
