Star Trek about to invade Hyde Park

LONDON—Watch out for Klingons on the starboard bow — The Starship Enterprise is landing in London's Hyde Park. Fans of the cult science fiction saga will be in seventh heaven with the opening of the biggest Star Trek exhibition ever staged, says Martin Biallas, the brains behind "Star Trek: The Adventure."

You can pose for a photo with Captain Kirk, battle the Borgs from the bridge of the Starship Enterprise, ride in a simulator and have yourself superimposed on to a souvenir video clip.

The exhibition, to be launched in London on Dec. 18, will go round the world from Europe to the United States and Australia "on a five-year mission to seek out new audiences, to boldly go where Star Trek has never gone before," Biallas says.

Biallas, head of Hollywood-based Special Entertainment Events, spent nine months persuading U.K. authorities that historic Hyde Park was the perfect launching pad for Star Trek.

"This is one of the biggest interactive events on earth," the flamboyant entrepreneur said at the site.

After five television series and 10 movies, Star Trek shows no signs of running out of steam.

"This exhibition will go five years, maybe 10," Biallas said. "Great Britain has 400,000 organized members in the Star Trek fan clubs. "

"It is the biggest event staged in Hyde Park since the Great Exhibition in 1851. Also, over 2,000 journalists from all over the world will be here to celebrate the opening of the 10th film, Nemesis."

Devoted "Trekkie" fans will be his harshest critics. "I always use the example of Captain Kirk's toilet. We have to build so it is so accurate ... If the lid is not the way the Trekkies know it, they'll say it is not real."
