God no!

Star Trek: the Experience is closing.

Yes, its a bad economy. Yes, the franchise is dead. Yes, it was never cool to begin with. But the Experience was awesome. Bill and I went two years ago and it was one of the best weekends I've ever had. We went on the rides five times. We bought communicators and rank pins. We got drunk on blue beer. We talked to Klingons. We got hit on by women. Yes, there was a place where Trekkies could actually be hit on by women. Married men.

And now it's gone. No one will be able to be beamed up anymore. No one will get to see Shatner's uniform. No one will ever get to take pictures like this:

It's a crime.

Thats to bad. I'm a recent convert on the classic star trek. Been watching the early Shatner stuff and loving it.

I wonder where all that memorabilia will go when they close it?
