William Shatner is going to be at that Star Trek set tour in Ticonderoga

Star Trek set tour Ticonderoga captains chair

The Star Trek Original Series Set Tour in Ticonderoga will be hosting William Shatner for a series of events December 7 and 8. There are tickets available for all sorts of photo and autograph sessions, as well as Q&A.

It's part of "Christmas with the Captains" series of events. The original Kirk will be joined by Anson Mount, who's playing Captain Christopher Pike in the upcoming season of the Star Trek: Discovery. (insert explainer about Captain Pike and different Star Trek timelines and... yeah, set phasers to nerd)

It looks like Shatner and Mount will be appearing both separately and together.

And what of this "Star Trek Original Series Set Tour"? Blurbage:

When the STAR TREK television series was canceled in 1969, the original sets were dismantled and largely destroyed, only a few small items of the actual sets remain today, and those that have survived are in private collections. Trek superfan James Cawley began the process of rebuilding the sets just as they would have been seen 50 years ago when the series was being filmed, a 14 year journey has culminated in the most accurate rebuild of the original sets, and is now open and welcoming STAR TREK fans from all over the world!

The set is open for tours. Adult tickets are $22.50.

Ticonderoga is about an hour and 45 minutes north of Albany.

Mr. Cawley's set is the real deal. I've been there twice and can tell you that it is an amazing experience. You feel like you're on the show. The guides strike the perfect balance of letting you take it all in, and giving you the behind-the-scenes info.

Geeky enough for a trekkie yet fun and lighthearted enough for a casual fan. Watch his home made episodes on the tubes of you and you can see the set in action.

The set is definitely very cool. They have the TNG set under construction.

Set a course for Ticonderoga and "make it so"! It is worth the "trek".
