Car Trek: The California Automobile Museum’s Star Trek Auto-versary
September 17, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Set your course for the California Automobile Museum as we welcome all lifeforms to Car Trek. In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek, the Museum will welcome all trekkies for a family-fun mission adventure featuring some of the cars that have appeared in past episodes and movies. Come in your favorite character costume (all phasers must be set to stun) and receive a $1 off admission!
The Museum will be transformed into a Starship of sorts complete with a BORG station, Starfleet officers, Kingon warriors and even a Fleet Bar. Visitors will enjoy a family-fun mission adventure featuring some of the cars that have appeared in past episodes and movies. Some examples of the special vehicles on display include the following:
- 1975 Blue Chevy Pickup that was featured in one of the most iconic Star Trek films, Star Trek IV “The Voyage Home”
- 1953 Bel Air which hit Deep Space 9 Captain Benjamin Sisko in a vision he was having;
- 1969 Chevy Camaro, Voyager Lieutenant Tom Paris spent time working on this amazing car in a holoprogram called “Grease Monkey” which allowed Tom to tinker with 20th century cars;
- From the Original Series a Volkswagen Beetle was recreated on planet Ekos.
Participate in a Great Tribble-Hunt. Or you can bring your smart-communicators and take our intergallactic trivia test – find out if you are a Ensign, Captain, Commander or a Red Shirt. Visit our Front Street Fleet Bar for out-of-this-world snacks and beverages. Peek inside our own space vehicle, the Star Streak or take a picture with our Jupiter 7.
Watch episodes of the 1970s animated Star Trek series or play Star Trek Jeopardy with members of Sacramento’s Starfleet Chapter, U.S.S. Independence. There will be lots of opportunities for photos and fun – So let’s boldly go and celebrate!
