not to be nitpicky with the press release but there was a Star Trek Missions in New York put on by ReedPop a few years ago so not really 'inaugural'

and I quote myself. Only took five years but they made it a traveling show

Still trying to figure out if this is a Traveling Show (like Celebration), always in NY, or a one shot

The reason I think it could be a one shot is because of the the logo and whatnot advertise it as the 50th anniversary, which it is, just that that seems like something you would play up when you only plan on one show

Though I am more inclined to think this could be a traveling show since it is ST: Mission NY, so then another year it will be ST: Mission Texas or ST Mission Chicago...

I'd like to see one of these on the West Coast!

I'm also wondering what this means for Creation Entertainment.

They're making their way to the West Coast. 2016 NY, 2022 Chicago; so 2032 San Diego?
