Starship Intrepid
 

Tour Description: You’ve just joined the crew of the Federation starship Intrepid in the 24th century. Pay a visit to its namesake, the legendary aircraft carrier USS Intrepid, and discover how service aboard a starship is like service aboard an aircraft carrier.

Gain new appreciation for their shared legacy of exploration, service and sacrifice—a legacy whose next chapter you and your starship will help to write.

To Boldly Go will be conducted “in-universe,” as if guests are newly commissioned officers who just graduated from the Starfleet Academy and are visiting the Intrepid Museum in the 24th century. Guests are encouraged to come in costume. Though the tour will be conducted in English, native Klingon speakers are welcome.

The tour lasts 60 minutes. It will explore the hangar deck, flight deck and Space Shuttle Pavilion, and involves long periods of walking and standing. Lightweight portable stools are available upon request, and the tour is wheelchair accessible. The tour does not include or require admission to Star Trek: The Starfleet Academy Experience, though we do recommend enjoying the exhibition before your tour.
