If It Actually Gets Built, The Star Trek Theme Resort Will Be the Ultimate Geek Hotel
Sorry Vegas, in a few years, no one will be holding their Star Trek conventions in your town anymore. No, instead they will beam themselves to the new Star Trek Theme Resort being built in Jordan.
Hotels Mag reports that construction on the $1.5 billion theme park and resort will start early next year and when it's completed in 2014 will include four hotels. Four! Details are scant on what else the project, known as the Red Sea Astrarium, will include but there is mention of a Star Trek-themed "space-flight adventure."
Also King Abdullah II is apparently a Trekkie, having made a cameo appearance on “Star Trek: Voyager” in 1995. Ahh...so that's what it's going to take to get our idea for the Battlestar Gallatica adults-only resort off the ground.
Well, we'll still keep our fingers crossed (or open Spock-style?) that the Star Trek resort actually gets built.
