Star Trek : The Experience Moving To Oscar Goodman's Big Mouth
From the R-J:
"It would be ironic," [Mayor Oscar] Goodman said of the potential for landing Star Trek, which attracted millions of visitors during a 10-year run at the Las Vegas Hilton. "Perhaps the most successful place downtown could be Neonopolis, even though it has been an albatross around my neck all these years."
Neonopolis' honcho Rohit Joshi was taken by surprise by Mr. Goodgin's loose-lippidness:
"You kind of shocked me," Joshi said when asked about the potential move. "I don't know how to respond to that."
He continued: "We are in very serious negotiations. We think it would be a fantastic addition to downtown."
Let's hope that Vespajet gets a piece of the action...
Relatedly, the great Dr. Dave Schwartz has posted yet another space shaking epic, which compares the current past and future states of the Las Vegas Strip with the different flavors of Star Trekkery. There's lots to love here... and here's my fave Shatnerism contained within:
Let me rephrase that: I don't...KNOW what all this MEANS.
