“Years in the making, the creation of STAR TREK THE TOUR has been a voyage of discovery worthy of the show itself,” explained Martin Biallas, CEO of SEE Touring Productions, Inc, which is producing the event. “Over the past 10 years, we secured privileged access to the vaults for the Star Trek TV shows and films, plucked select gems and tirelessly assembled the world’s leading collection of priceless Star Trek sets, ships, props and costumes. Now, we’re bringing Star Trek to life and inviting the public to experience it up-close-and-personal in a way never before possible.”
“The universal appeal of STAR TREK THE TOUR is undeniable,” explained John Scher, President of Metropolitan Talent. “It has something to offer for everyone -- from 8-year-old children to 80-year-old grandparents, we have all grown up with Star Trek and watched it become one of the most beloved and popular series of all time. It has captured our imagination. Now, for the first time, we’re turning fantasy into reality. We’re pulling back the curtain to give the public an exclusive opportunity to step inside the Star Trek world for themselves.”
STAR TREK THE TOUR, under a licensing agreement with CBS Consumer Products, is produced by SEE Touring Productions Inc. and presented by Metropolitan Talent Inc.
