Is Universal looking into the possibility of building a SciFi themed land themed around Star Trek universe? In a previous update, we too had mentioned that Universal was looking into using Star Trek as a possible theme for whatever attraction might replace the former T2/3D attraction, but according to Disney & More (https://disneyandmore.blogspot.com/2018/05/is-universal-studios-planning-star-trek.html), they could be eying Trek to play a much bigger role instead.
The concept makes sense, as Star Trek is perfectly poised as the other huge popular SciFi series that could act as a serious counter to Disney's push to bring the Star Wars universe to life. What better way than to excite all the Trekkies out there into a frenzy by building an entire Star Trek themed land as part of the next theme park. Just imagine the legions of Trek fans coming out in droves alongside the Potter fans to Universal Orlando.
Disney & More pushes the concept speculation even further by revisiting ancient plans once made for Las Vegas that would have involved building a huge casino themed to look like the starship Enterprise itself docked on the strip. Hmmm.... Disney is planning a Star Wars themed hotel... but what if you could spend the night inside the Enterprise? Temping... so very tempting...
