Star Trek Las Vegas Archive.

Lot 0094 Details

Description
(Landmark Ent./Paramount Parks, 1992-98) An archive of (70+) blueprints for the Star Trek Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton and concept artwork for the Starship Enterprise Downtown Las Vegas monument by the Landmark Entertainment Group. In 1992, the balance of commerce in Las Vegas had swung heavily from the downtown region to the Las Vegas Strip with its modern hotels, casinos, and tourist attractions. In an effort to bring visitors back downtown, a consortium of hotel and casino owners financed a contest to find the best redevelopment project. Designer, producer, and entrepreneur Gary Goddard thought he had the answer to make downtown Vegas an essential destination once again: build a full-scale model of the Starship Enterprise NCC-1701 from Star Trek. The wild idea found traction with the downtown business community and local politicians, as well as the licensing department at Paramount Studios. For his part, Goddard hired Disney Imagineers to make sure the mammoth fictional spacecraft could actually be built in a structurally sound manner, able to withstand the inhospitable desert climate, and accommodate heavy daily tourist traffic. It initially appeared as if Vegas would actually get its Enterprise, until Goddard, financiers, the Las Vegas mayor, and their studio contacts met with Paramount CEO Stanley Jaffe. Though the studio stood to make millions from licensing and an untold fortune in merchandizing, Jaffe, to the shock and dismay of all, was the sole dissenter. He argued if a movie flopped, it would be forgotten in a few weeks. However, if a project with this degree of permanence failed to come off, it would be a considered a monument to folly (specifically, his). With that, the project was killed. This concept street map, accomplished in marker, ink, watercolor, crayon, and ink stamp on foam core board, offers a glimpse at the surreal cityscape that might have been. The artwork is paired with an archive of (70+) blueprints, diagrams, and schematics from Goddard’s next venture: the Star Trek Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton, which opened in 1998. Comprising plans for Star Trek Base Building, home of the Experience, and the adjoining, similarly themed SpaceQuest casino, this collection of technical material showcases visionary designers boldly going where no one had before and offers a wealth of insight into the construction of the popular attraction. The map measures 27.25”x36” and is in very good condition with some edge wear and minor soiling in the blank margins. The blueprints are staple bound (a few loose pages) and each measures 30.5”x42”. They are in very good condition, exhibiting minor handling and some corner creasing.
