Paramount+ is bringing their “Star Trek‘s 10 Forward: The Experience” to San Diego Comic-Con this July.

Fans will be able to step foot into this immersive experience (at 340 Fifth Ave), to experience Starfleet’s favorite watering hole for themselves. The event will give attendees a chance to experience tasty food, intergalactic drinks, photo ops, and interactive activations. There will also be exclusive merch available at the official 10 Forward Canteen Store, featuring exclusive Star Trek merchandise and some new custom products never sold before.

Tickets are $60 for a general admission (which includes admission, two cocktails, food, and access to the store and photo op), or $125 for a VIP Chef’s Table, which includes everything the general admission ticket does plus entry to reserved seating, an elevated food experience, bespoke tasting flight, and a curated gift bag of swag.

The event will be open daily Thursday, July 21 – Sunday, July 24 at the con, during the folowing hours:

Thursday, July 21 1:30pm – 9:30pm
Friday, July 22: 1:30pm – 9:30pm
Saturday, July 23: 9:30pm – 11:30pm
Sunday, July 24: 11:30am-7:30pm
Considering Saturday is evening only, could something else be happening there in the day, perhaps with cast? We’ll have to stay tuned to find out.

I really wanted to do this when it was in L.A. a few months ago.

Here's the link for the San Diego event, in case you want to check it out for yourself--

Looks like there is food included - is there a menu available from past events or this one?

The L.A. event had a different L.A.-based restaurant host each night, so there were different menus.
I haven't seen anything yet for the SD event.

it doesn't seem as tho VIP tix are avalible ..... question is it due to the details not being worked out yet OR they're sold out?

If anyone is wondering, this is the location for a place called Happy Does Bar.

https://www.yelp.com/biz/happy-does-bar-san-diego

Menu Here. I'm sure they will have specific Star Trek related food, but if not, here is what you could expect.

https://www.happydoesbar.com/food

Never been here personally, but this was the location of the Strip Club (A cook your own steak place I had been to a few times). I'm not ready to commit yet for something like this, but it does look like Sat night is pretty much bought except for really late night.

Saturday isn’t bought out; it’s not happening during the day on Saturday.  According to the listed hours of operation, it starts at 9:30pm Saturday.  Probably studio stuff during that day.

I really want to go, but sure I'm ready to commit to $120 (two peeps). I've been burned by these type of experiences before. For example, years ago I went to a Taste of Thrones event that had a pre-set meal of dishes from Westeros, and photo ops with the Iron Throne. It was fun, but I don't know if it was completely worth it, and it was cheaper than this Star Trek experience.

Also, I really want to know the difference between "elevated food service" and regular. Like, more food? Better food? More alcohol?

Purchased Thurs 5:30 for all four of us. Woohoo! I'm pretty excited because even if it's not a stellar event it's something I know I could only do at SDCC which makes it pretty cool right there. I mean it's Star Trek how could that be bad? hahahaha

Post by: Transmute Jun on June 16, 2022, 05:11:26 PM
It sounds to me like it's something like the Westworld experience they had that year. Honestly, I'd rather have a fee and then be able to reserve something like this, than wait hours in line and be denied (which is what happened with us for Westworld).

That was a more individualized experience with a narrative.  Kind of like how the Mr. Robot offsite was as well.  This is basically a Star Trek themed restaurant.  Here's a video I found of it on youtube when it happened in LA.  I made it a spoiler in case someone wants to be surprised.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Thanks for sharing that! Wonder if it will be similar in San Diego or if they will do some extra special things since it's during SDCC.

My guess is that it will be at least slightly more elaborate since it's an SDCC experience. The LA event only cost $25 and the SDCC one is $60 (even factoring in the current inflation situation, that's a pretty significant price increase for there not to be some more depth to the experience), and also according to Parks and Cons' write-up on the LA event, different food trucks were brought in each day to provide food for that event, whereas the SDCC event seems like it will have more of a set (and likely Star Trek themed?) menu. I'm certainly hoping the SDCC one will be more immersive *fingers crossed*

Went back and forth a bit but decided to go for it and got tickets for Thursday 1:30pm. I LOVED it when it was in LA and my dad is a huge Star Trek fan from way back so I'm excited to get to take him. I just hope it's as good as in LA (or better, with that price hike  ::) ) and that they still have mocktails. My dad is obviously over 21 but he's sober so I don't want him to be stuck with plain Earth water.

Ah, right. The price difference. :) Hopefully that means a better experience and some tasty food!

LOL! Thanks for pointing this out. I just assumed when I saw only the late times, the earlier ones were sold out. Seems weird that it starts that late that day.

Thanks for posting this. After watching the video I gotta admit, I'm a little underwhelmed. Maybe as a solo person, I might need something more, but if I were with a group of friends, this would probably appeal to me more. But on the video,

Also, FYI for anyone wondering, the experience requires you to be fully vaccinated. No testing as a sub or exceptions.

It would be awesome if they made it like the Bladerunner 2049 offsite.  It's one of my favorite offsites ever.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPaE2kyQvG0

But from the description and what the LA one was like, I think it more likely to be like this if it's more immersive.

These are examples of what I meant when I said that offsites like this used to be free.

The FAQ document says this:

Will food and beverage be available on site for purchase?

Both food and alcoholic / non-alcoholic beverages will be included as part of the guest ticket price. Purchase price includes 2 complimentary cocktail tickets, after which guests may continue enjoying the bar on a cash-basis.

So it sounds like there are non-alcoholic options?

Feels like with an upcoming recession, inflation, labor issues and general uncertainty in the air due to Covid, events like these may be absent for the foreseeable future. On one hand, both were really cool. On the other, I recall the waits for both seemed pretty long.

The wait for Bladerunner wasn't so bad, a couple of hours.  The line was much shorter late at night.  Unlike most offsites that close at 5 or 6pm, they stayed open until around midnight.  I walked by late one night and the line was super short.  If I didn't have to catch a Trolley I would have done it again.

The Taco Bell line was super long.  I didn't get in until the second time I stood in line.  The first time it was taking so long that I hopped out since I had a shift later that day.  I didn't think I would make it in time.  I went back the next day and toughed it out.  If I remember right it was about 4 hours.  They too had a late night option.  After the food ran out, they let people in to look around and have a photo OP.  I heard from other people that was easy to do.

I'm holding out hope that there will be real purpose made comic-con offsites.  So far, including this one, they are existing pop-up tours adding a stop in San Diego for comic-con.  The company that runs a lot of the offsites at comic-con has said that the demand for their services is high this year.

The more and more I learn about what the LA experience was, the less and less I think SD will be much different.  Even with the food trucks in LA it was still promoted as Star Trek themed food.  The advertisement and description for the SD one looks exactly the same as the LA one with one exception.  I don't think LA had a VIP tier.  The price difference could simply be because its comic-com.  Prices get jacked up for that including storefronts and restaurants that get rented out.  The cost of doing business is high around comic-con so I think they had to raise the price accordingly.

I think it would be one thing if it was 10 Forward on the Enterprise.  It's not.  It's 10 Forward from Picard.  Which is a 21st century bar.

Okay, so I went to the LA one and loved it enough to go back and take my dad this time. I'll answer a couple things that keep coming up based on the LA experience ONLY:

LA cost $25, which included 2 alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks and food from whatever food truck was there that night. My friend and I didn't read closely and didn't realize food was included until we got there. We'd already eaten, so we just had drinks. You could buy more drinks after you used up your 2 pre-purchased ones through the app (we wanted to try them all so we bought 1 extra to share).

The bar was completely themed out. It's the Picard bar but there were tons of clever little throwbacks to other series and characters. I thought it was really well done and immersive; YMMV of course.

The ticket also meant your seat/table was reserved for the 90-minute slot, which meant no hovering around looking for a place to sit, and you could leave the table without worrying someone would sweep in and swipe your seat.

There was no swag at LA, just several photo ops and actors wandering around you could interact with. They weren't specific characters from the show, just aliens who happened to be hanging out in this bar, which I personally enjoyed. There was a small merch booth in one corner where you could buy shirts, posters, glassware, and a cocktail book. You could also buy the Chateau Picard wines and spirits, but they couldn't deliver them onsite; you were essentially buying a voucher for the website. I bought a shirt and it's really soft and thin and fitted, exactly how I like my t-shirts.

If you like immersive as opposed to being hit over the head with branding and storylines, this is for you. If not, not. I do hope the SDCC experience is just a little upgraded since the price is more than double (swag would be great), but for me, a meal and two alcoholic drinks for $60 (which includes tax and there was nowhere to tip) isn't that out of line. I also live in LA, so again, YMMV.

People saying 60 is pricey is interesting to me being an east coaster, cocktails here are like 15-20 bucks.  So that right there gets you to 40.  But *shrug* it is what it is.

I think it's less a bar experience and more just "sit here for 90 min and soak up the vibes"...if this was a more immersive, like, actually walking into a bar to hang out and such, then maybe...but maybe I hate being on a schedule for something like this either...


(or I might be hangry :D )

Yeah, I was a little bummed to have to schedule it - and before the panel schedule even comes out - but the tradeoff is that instead of waiting in a multi-hour line to 'walk into a bar' (because SDCC). Plus I'm taking my 70 year old dad who's been into Trek forever and whose knees can't really handle endless lines anymore. So for me it's worth it but I get that it wouldn't be for everyone.

Was the included food any good?  And was it an actual meal or more appetizers/snacks?

Post by: semigeekgirl on June 29, 2022, 10:51:00 PM
@nightshade The food seemed to be entree-sized from what I could see around us, but as I said we didn't eat. Also, the food was from a different LA based food truck every night, so it will probably be totally different in San Diego.

The Star Trek Experience was great.  It's a shame they shut it down.  I didn't have time to hang out at the restaurant but I was able to do the experience once on the way to the airport after finishing floor duty at a trade show.  Really the only thing I remember about it was the bridge.  That was awesome.  I wish we had more time to look around there but it was a narrative so the show had to go on.

I saw a documentary about it.  It was first envisioned to be a much bigger thing.  What ended up being built was scaled down.  I think it was before it's time.  I think it could have been done successfully today.  Like the Star Wars and Harry Potter ones.

Dang it! I waited too long to commit to a time! Wondering if they'll have a stand-by line for walk ins?!

Not sure why that’s surprising — every reservation for the Mooby’s food pop up is also taken.

I figured the cost would slow down the signups... guess not!

Certainly, this sets a precedent for future events.

I wouldn’t describe the $30 for a Jay and Silent Bob themed fast food meal as a bargain!  :-)

It did.  If this had been free like offsites have been in the past, it would have sold out in minutes.

yeah,  not spending money is going to limit what folks can do this con.

Maybe I should start a thread for ' Off-sites, what to do that's free' LOL

I'd say things costing money is actually a good thing not a bad.  In years past people would RSVP for everything and figure it out after.  So you'd have events that could have easily fit more dedicated fans but because they weren't fast enough they didn't get tickets.  Now you have to actually ponder your moves.  Seems okay to me.

I hear the thought process. The only caveat is the number of times I've paid for an event & not gone due to wanting to do something else. LOL

I also like paying for the event and reserving my time. So I don't have to wait in line for hours to get in. That's worth something too.

Yeah, I don't hate this either. I'm sure plenty of events with free RSVPs that fill up in the past end up having a ton of no-shows (I am guilty of this).

yeah it's nice to know I'm getting in and don't need to camp out three hours and maybe not get in.  I remember lining up for the Amazon parties and just took forever and there was like no cover.

That's true.  When people have to pay, even $5, they tend to only do it if they are serious.  Some events explicitly say that's why they charge a small token fee.  But on the other side of the coin, it filters out the fans who can't even afford $5 let alone $60.  Comic-con has always had a moat.  It's just not that it's hard to buy badges, it's expensive.  Offsites have been the way for people who can't afford it to still be able to participate.

As for signing up for everything and figuring it out later, that's why there's a standby line.  The spot won't be wasted.  There's always someone willing to take your spot.

Free offsites have also had reserved times so that you wouldn't have to wait in line.  Well at least not as long of a line.  Unless the operators want to be very draconian, there's always a little line whether there's reserved times or not.

I got the VIP pass … glad I did! I was hungry after humping around the con all day and the food was wonderful.

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20220723/7d6593bf4c019c2531b857b0c8c82a35.jpg)

On the spicy side but delicious.

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20220723/18aa0216d0bd046594144c841d7967d9.jpg)

There were only a few VIP tables, three or four.

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20220723/25120e2e910a242930be9451e957ba19.jpg)

Definitely would do this or something similar again.

The non VIP was terrible. Should have just stood in line for the outdoor/standby one. There was no guaranteed seating, the food was tray passed so you had to chase it down, and the bar line took over 30 minutes. I didn't even have time to use both drink tickets. Plus whatever the "beam me up" thing was (I didn't have time to do it) took up the entire stage space at the front and really killed the immersive theme vibe. I took my dad and I barely even got to hang out with him bc we'd lose our seats if we got up at the same time.

It would have been fine as a free/cheap activation but for $60 it was absolutely my biggest disappointment of the entire con.

VIP was a billion percent worth it.  The paramount rep came by gave us extra drink tickets, we had so much food I wound up sharing with my non VIP friends.  I got a gift box/bag at the end that had a screen used tribble in it, a t shirt, some little souveiner glasses, and a spock book.  We also got to line cut so we got in first and were able to go do all the photo ops real quick before it got busy.  Got a cariacature too.
