The new Star Trek theme park experience isn't at a theme park

Pretty soon, NASA won't be sending any more men into space. But that doesn't mean you wont' be able to pay a visit to the final frontier yourself, starting in June.

The new STAR TREK LIVE experience in Florida will give you the chance to follow in the footsteps of James Tiberius Kirk (presumably the most recent incarnation), but you'll have to trek a bit outside the Disney/Universal/Sea World area of Orlando, since the latest Federation adventure is located at Kennedy Space Center. The details:

Audience members join Starfleet Academy only to be unexpectedly whisked into an adventure steeped in the grand tradition of Star Trek. STAR TREK LIVE combines cutting-edge special effects, unmatched audience interaction, cool science and on-screen appearances from Captain Kirk and Spock themselves to create an exhilarating and unforgettable theatrical experience.

Eager to learn from Starfleet's best and brightest, our cadets assemble, anxious to prepare for their first day at the Academy. As we are introduced to the Academy, the Earth itself comes under attack from a renegade Romulan, leaving the fate of the future itself in the hands of our cadets. Our cadets will have to quickly learn the intricacies of living and working in space, modern space travel and the latest in communication and technology as they draw on the achievements of science in the 21st century. It will require all our knowledge, ingenuity, logic and an exploration of science to discover what is happening and how to set things right before it's too late!

Extra Tidbit: At least there's another use for Kennedy now that the space shuttle program is permanently grounded. Sad.
