Federation Plaza has been created in collaboration with CBS Consumer Products. Surrounding the park's former film museum, the futuristic Star Trek set brings the Starfleet Academy to life and also includes a shop. “Visitors enter the all-generation Star Trek universe to become Starfleet cadets,” explains Movie Park Germany general manager Thorsten Backhaus. “Our guests are then sent on a mission to save the entire crew of the USS Enterprise before the Borg can assimilate them.” Backhaus reveals that Movie Park chose to licence the

The Star Trek franchise and this rollercoaster are the perfect combination.”
