Fans disappointed that the "Star Trek"-themed section of a Las Vegas hotel closed can now set their sights on a new tribute to Gene Roddenberry's galaxy of space exploration and adventure.
"'Star Trek' will be represented in force at Paramount Park Murcia, to be located at Alhama de Murcia on the Mediterranean coast about 270 miles southeast of Madrid," according to StarTrek.com. "The wide-ranging project will incorporate condos and office buildings, hotels, malls, a casino, a convention center, gardens, nightlife, and dining areas, an exhibition hall/auditorium and a theme park divided into several sections.
Last week, StarTrek.com posted official concept art of the theme park, and it appears to have a strong Starfleet Academy vibe.
"Plaza Futura will be designed to appeal to 'Star Trek' fans," StarTrek.com said. "3D renderings depict a large futuristic square that will include a Starfleet Spain recruiting center, a 3D simulator ride (which allows guests/recruits to experience adventures in outer space), and a Warp Speed Coaster that will reach exciting heights and speeds and include an underground portion (a wormhole, naturally) and several loops."
No word on whether there will be a Klingon section for those wanting to brush up on their combat skills. But we're hoping for at least one bar to replicate The U.S.S. Enterprise's Ten Forward in case we need to bond with our fellow officers.
