STAR Trek fans, better known as "Trekkies", should make their way to the National Science Centre in Kuala Lumpur for Star Trek: The Exhibition.
This exhibition, to be held till March, features the largest collection of Star Trek paraphernalia and information and Kuala Lumpur is the exhibition's first Asian destination after Vancouver, Canada.
It features costumes, museum pieces and props from the Star Trek television series and the 11 feature films.
Trekkies and those new to Star Trek will have a chance to explore the show's characters, props and all things science fiction.
Around the world, Star Trek has become a sub-culture for many, with Trekkies gathering to role-play in their favourite characters.
One of the main attractions is the opportunity to sit in the legendary captain's chair on the command bridge of the USS Enterprise.
Visitors can also pose in front of a seven-metre replica of the spaceship, enjoy one-of-a-kind displays, check out the interactive kiosk and enjoy photo opportunities.
National Science Centre director, Prof Dr Irmawati Ramli said that she was honoured to host the best that the Star Trek franchise had to offer.
"I am sure that this exhibition will be a success," she said.
EMS Group chairman Datuk Jared Lim said the exhibition can be used to inspire the younger generation and pique their interest in science.
He added that the basic appeal of Star Trek is its voyage in a multiracial universe where different being try to co-exist.
"It draws a close parallel to Earth where people are also struggling to co-exist peacefully," he said.
EMS Asia Pacific Pte Ltd managing director Greg Suzuki anticipates a total of 200,000 visitors to the exhibition.
"This exhibition allows fans and visitors to explore and experience the world of Star Trek beyond the movie and television screens, up-close and in person, in true Star Trek fashion," said Suzuki.
EMS Entertainment is an entertainment exhibitor which had successfully produced exhibitions like Dinosaurs -- Live!, CSI: The Experience and Barbie: The Dreamhouse Experience.
After Kuala Lumpur, the exhibition will make its way to Taiwan where it will be on show in two cities until February 2014.
The exhibition is from 9am to 5pm daily except on Fridays.
The entrance fee is RM20 per adult and RM10 per child. For school children who come in groups, the fee is RM5 per student with a minimum requirement of 20 students and they must be in school uniform and accompanied by a teacher.
