    Nicely done. I saw the Voyager ride on my Vegas 2006 trip. It had you aboard an evac ship and there was feedback built into the seats. There was a bit on the ride were the shuttle was caught by a borg cube and they used the feedback to simulate a loss of atmosphere (a big, sharp gust of pressure) as that part had the hull ripped open by a tractor beam. The effect switch that made it look like you were now looking through a hole rather than a viewscreen was pretty good.

    I never got to eat at Quark's, though the tour guide on the backstage tour also worked there and run through it a bit. It happened to be the 40th anniversary of the Franchise at the same point and they'd not long ago added the Enterprise stuff into the exhibit. I've still got my Spock Beanie Baby and stuffed Tribble from the gift shop!

    Great article Silek! I unfortunately did not get to experience The Experience as this all took place before I was done with grade school and I didn't hear about its existence growing up in isolated Maine Tongue Out. lol. If this were created today, I'd drive/fly to wherever now, but oh well. Glad you got to take part in it Smile.

    It really was a well done event. I wish I had been to the Borg part like Petrarch. i really do regret not going once it had opened.

    Well you probably imagined it'd be around for a lot longer than it was. I would have loved the Borg part Borg.

    I went to Vegas not long after the experience opened and I loved it. Unfortunately I never got a chance to go back before it closed so I never was able to experience the Borg update.

    I had the pleasure to ride both rides multiple times before the closing. It was one of the most remarkable experiences I've ever had. Never have I ever felt more close to the Star Trek universe. The Borg in 4D I'll never forget, especially when the Borg chase you down a corridor as you watch the other guest scream in fear.

    Was extremely sad to see the Experience close. I had hoped (and still do) that it may return in some form in the future.
