Enterprise d reconstruction project
New Starship Enterprise Bridge Restoration is nonprofit foundation created to completely restore one of the Paramount created Enterprise-D Bridge sets from Star Trek: The Next Generation, so it can be displayed to the public and turned into an Interactive Museum attraction.
The ORIGINAL TV Set was destroyed for the film Star Trek: Generations, and this duplicate set was created in 1997 by Paramount, under the supervision of Herman Zimmerman and Michael Okuda.
A group of the original Star Trek designers, artists, cast and crew including Ronald D. Moore, Naren Shankar, Doug Drexler, Andrew Probert, Herman Zimmerman, Rick Sternbach, David Gerrold, Brent Spiner and Larry Nemecek,are helping us update our set to the 21st Century technology with WORKING INTERACTIVE Touch Screen LCARS COMPUTERS. It will be the equivalent of the world’s largest, totally interactive educational video game.
By 2014, it will be opened to the public for Weddings, Meetings, Movie Showings, Fund Raising, Tours, Fan Films and more. Our Kickstarter and Indiegogo raised over $84,000, every dime of which goes directly into the restoration.
The Foundation is in the process of applying for federal and California State tax exempt status. All donations made to the Foundation prior to receiving the requested federal and State determination letters should be deductible by the donor, provided that tax-exempt status is eventually attained. Please contact the Foundation for further information to determine whether your donation will be deductible for tax purposes.
Here’s a few videos explaining the idea.
