One Last Thing Before We Go: Say It Ain’t So Scotty

A Proof of Nerd ID by Ryan Dixon

Devastating News

Dear friends,

It is my sad duty to inform you that on September 1, 2008, STAR TREK: THE EXPERIENCE at the Las Vegas Hilton closed its doors forever.

I know that for the many of you who enjoyed experiencing “Klingon Encounter” and “Borg Invasion 4D” while drinking a “Borg Sphere” or a “Warp Core Breach,” this news will come as a shock. And for those who never
got the chance to experience what was perhaps the greatest immersive interactive entertainment experience of its time, my heart goes out to you.

It’s hard to put into words the loss that I (and am sure, you) feel right now. But, as they say, life goes on and STAR TREK: THE EXPERIENCE will live forever in our memories.

All the best,


Farewell, Sweet Friend, Farewell

Note from the Editor: This is an actual email that Ryan sent around to all of his friends. When I asked if I could post it on Fierce and Nerdy, he wrote, “ Yes, that’s fine. It will probably help people deal with the loss.”
