The exhibit is set up like a future Career Day with tours rotating attendees around the various ship-based specialties: Language, Medical, Navigation, Engineering, Command and Science. At the end of the tour, attendees are sorted into their own Starfleet house (thankfully, nobody will end up a red shirt). The exhibit simulates the tricorders, phasers and other iconic Star Trek tech with RFID sensors, planet projection mapping, holograms, and other modern gadgetry.
New York is the first stop on the Starfleet Academy Experience's tour. During its stay, the Intrepid Museum will hold themed events like movie nights, two Trek-focused summer camp weeks, Astronomy nights, and Operation Slumber overnights.
