Join Starfleet Academy at New York’s Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum


Our trip to the museum (video link)

New York’s Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum here in sweltering New York City has a new Star Trek exhibition running through until the end of October: the Starfleet Academy Experience.

As a cadet at the academy, a wide range of interactive exhibits allow you to diagnose injured Klingons in sick bay, set phasers to stun in security, investigate the unknown at the science station, and more. After completing and signing in to each interactive portion with your RFID wristband, all Starfleet cadets must take the Kobayashi Maru test from the bridge of the Enterprise. At the conclusion of your training, the system says which part of Starfleet you’d be best at: are you captain material, or would you be better off as the next Mr. Spock? I learned that I’m not really cut out for security, because phasers are actually hard to aim. Gun-shaped guns turn out to be much easier!
