Hyde Park - set to boldly go where no-one 's gone before

  • Comment

A model of the spaceship from Star Trek is set to appear in Hyde Park after Westminster council gave the plans the go-ahead.

The Royal Parks won approval for the spaceship, designed by Triple A Entertainments, which forms the centrepiece for an exhibition, 'The Star Trek Experience'. The 8,255m 2attraction is organised into various areas, each on a different Star Trek theme, and incorporates a restaurant, museum and souvenir shop. There will also be educational facilities for children, focusing on issues such as the Earth and the environment. The 'landing' of the structure is planned to coincide with the premiere of the new Star Trek film, to be held in London in November.

Funds raised from the venture will be used for restoration work within Hyde Park and for community sports developments in Regent's Park.

After a five-month spell in Hyde Park, the 'Star Trek Experience' will travel to Australia, Asia and the Americas.

The plans are awaiting the approval of London mayor Ken Livingstone.
