‘Star Trek’ Fans Vie For Ultimate Nerd Wedding

DETROIT (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Trekkers are vying for the chance to give their soul mate the ultimate display of their geeky affection.

This past Saturday (Feb. 14) the Detroit Science Center kicked off the grand opening of their latest exhibit, Star Trek: The Exhibition, by holding a kooky contest that made trekkers’ hearts skip a beat.

Fans who proposed at the exhibit’s opening were entered to win a Star Trek wedding ceremony aboard the USS Enterprise, complete with a full trekkie wedding reception with all the dorky bells and whistles, including a Star Trek- themed cake and honeymoon suite.

Lovebirds had their pictures taken, and visitors to the center’s website will now vote on who deserves the nerdy nuptials until a winner is chosen on March 16.

According to spokesperson Kelly Fulford, the trekker who wins the wacky wedding should truly be out of this world.

She says, “It’ll probably help their chances if they’re wearing a costume in their picture.”
