Now this is my all time favorite piece of memorabilia housed at the Vulcan tourism Centre. Click on the photo for a full size version as Spock's ears perk up after he's had a drink of Heineken! I so wanted a copy of that, but alas, it was a one of a kind.
Next time, we see the giant Enterprise, the welcome plaques on it's base and the really fun walls.

As you can see, the walls are covered with collectibles. I'm not sure if any of it is for sale, but the main lobby of the centre sells all sorts of Star Trek themed gifts. My daughter bought herself a Tribble and for the following two days as we drove home every once in a while I'd hear a smack and the Tribble making a giggling sound.
I really liked this black and white of the some of original crew. I think it was a puzzle, but I can't be sure.
My next post will be about Spock, and the unique item I found in a curio cabinet in Vulcan.

This is the view from the back and I am growing more convinced that it was the original tourist info centre. The little green alien looking out the back is somewhat comical and confusing. I don't recall little green aliens (other than the green lady Kirk makes happy with) in Star Trek.
Next post we'll see more of the amazing inside of the Vulcan Tourism Centre.

Captain Krok will appear once you are aboard your starship to give you other instructions.

Capitalizing on this coincidence, the town has built a Star Trek-themed tourist station (the Tourism and Trek Station), which provides tourist information, displays Star Trek memorabilia, and where visitors may participate in The Vulcan Space Adventure virtual reality game. Nearby, a replica of the starship Enterprise from Star Trek V has been mounted on a pedestal which includes writing from Trek alien languages like Klingon. The town has also created space-themed murals and signs, and hosts an annual community-wide Star Trek convention known as VulCON: Spock Days/Galaxyfest.
