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. As a Trekkie myself, I was excited to find out that the foundation is coming to Comic-Con with a booth and panel to show off their progress and talk about the process. Get the details in their press release after the break, and look out for more from us about this at the convention.

NEW STARSHIP FOUNDATION BRINGS the bridge of enterprise-d to comic-con international: san diego

(Non-profit foundation will exhibit portions of its full-scale reproduction of the “Star Trek: The Next Generation” set at the annual comic book & popular arts convention)

LOS ANGELES (June 24, 2013) – New Starship Foundation will unveil the latest additions to its “Star Trek Enterprise-D Bridge Restoration & Sci-Fi Museum” at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2013. The exhibit will be the Foundation’s largest display of the set, which is a full-scale recreation of the interior of the USS Enterprise from the television series, Star Trek: The Next Generation (http://www.newstarship.com).

New Starship Foundation’s exhibit, which appears at the San Diego Convention Center Located at Booth 3921, from July 17-21, 2013, provides Trekkies with their first opportunity to see the organization’s fully-restored Captain’s chair from Enterprise-D. The Foundation will grant special access to members of the media and celebrities wishing to use chairs, computers and other props from the bridge set for interviews, on-camera segments and photo opportunities. This latest prop is a Paramount built replica chair famously used by Patrick Stewart, who played Captain Jean-Luc Picard, commanding officer of the USS Enterprise-D, during the entire seven-season run of the show. Picard’s chair joins an already robust collection of restored Paramount props from Star Trek: TNG, including chairs & computers used by Commander William Riker and counselor Deanna Troi (played by Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis, respectively). Fans of the series will be able to photograph themselves sitting in all three chairs, as well as interacting with several parts of the Enterprise-D bridge set. “We’re really excited to bring die-hard fans this chance to interact with fully-functioning, life-sized pieces of the Enterprise NCC-1701-D,” says New Starship Foundation CEO Huston Huddleston. “Everyone working on the Enterprise-D Bridge Restoration is a lifelong Trekkie, so we can’t wait to share the joy and hard work that’s gone into restoring the greatest ship of the Federation Starfleet.”

On Saturday, July 20, New Starship Foundation will host a panel featuring several members of the Star Trek universe. Taking place at 5:30 p.m. in San Diego Convention Center Room 26AB, the panel will discuss all things Star Trek, as well as the New Starship Foundation’s plans to take the Enterprise­-D Bridge Restoration on tour to several cities across the United States and internationally. The group will also reveal details regarding the Foundation’s plan to create a permanent Hollywood Sci-Fi Museum. Among the list of confirmed panelists are screenwriter & novelist David Gerrold; author Larry Nemecek and makeup artist, illustrator & visual effects artist Doug Drexler. Several surprise guests will also join the panel, making it an unforgettable experience for all Trekkies in attendance.
