FedCon 27 | Vortrag | Star Trek Set-Tour / Academy

If you ever wanted to experience what it would be like to visit the set of Star Trek: The Original Series, now is your chance.

The sets have been re-created exactly as they were laid at Desilu during the original run of TOS. Visitors can step onto the soundstage and be transported directly back to 1966. Additionally, beginning later this month, visitors will enjoy guided tours, photo opportunities and an immersive experience into the world of the classic television series.

James Cawley started creating the sets in 1997 after receiving a copy of the original set blueprints from TOS costume designer William Ware Theiss. He then spent 15 years researching, crafting and refining his set replicas alongside other dedicated fans and craftspeople, including Trek alumni and fellow fans prop fabricator Ed Miarecki and concept designer and SFX supervisor Daren R. Dochterman.

Pouring over stills and frame captures from TOS and sourcing vintage materials and antiques, Cawley ensured that even the smallest details were accurately and lovingly reproduced. This spanned from an array of props to set decorations. The result is a stunning achievement offering the most complete and accurate reproduction of the original TOS standing sets.

In this talk, we will be showing you pictures of the Tour and discussing the new project to let fans appear in their own episode of Star Trek with the “Star Trek Academy”.

Duration: 60 min  -  The Lecture will be held in: english
