Can you believe it’s been 25 YEARS since Captain Kirk met his in Star Trek Generations on “Veridian III” — aka Nevada’s Valley of Fire? Mark his memorial with Geek Nation Tours on a journey to this amazing natural landscape of Star Trek history in 2019… It has been some time since we offered our “Escape the Convention Adventure” that had fans so excited on the day before Star Trek Las Vegas opens, so it seems only fitting we mark the 25th Anniversary with a return to the “scene of the crime.” To the very spot were James T. Kirk died… and a few other fun, unexpected Trek bonus stops, too.
Geek Nation Tours presents a one-day Trek Adventure to explore Nevada’s Valley of Fire State Park, otherwise known as the final resting place of Captain James T. Kirk from Star Trek: Generations. … The desert buttes scenery is awesome enough on its own, but of course we will see where the movie’s climax was filmed and where Dr. Tolian Soran attempted to destroy Veridian III’s star in order to alter the direction of the Nexus ribbon. We will see where Captains Kirk and Picard thwarted his plans, and where the legendary James T. Kirk was killed and put to rest. A few years back we had a quest to find Picard’s hole (yes we did just say that) and we will continue the search in 2019 and 2020. We will also look for the Enterprise Rock and much more…
As one of the coolest spots in Nevada (well it will be hot AND cool) – Valley of Fire State Park was once the spiritual centre of many Native Americans. We will see Indian petroglyphs and other priceless artifacts plus some of the strangest and most wonderful rock formations in the world.
And you won’t believe what movie prop is still intact there, to provide you the ultimate photo opp stop!
Like the full #LA2Vegas tour offered again next year, our one-day adventure will be guest-led by “Dr. Trek” – Larry Nemecek—the noted Chief Experience Officer of Portal47.net, host of “The Trek Files” podcast from Roddenberry, author of the bestseller Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion and now Star Trek: Stellar Cartography—often called upon for his vast knowledge of the Star Trek universe and its business. He is currently researching Star Trek filming sites, and he will continue his trek with Geek Nation Tours today.
If you were already planning to be in Las Vegas at least a day before the convention formally starts, consider this—or consider making plans to do so
