You are among the guests on the Conpernicus space station. Voyager's Doctor is there as well to analyze which guests have a special strain of DNA resistant to Borg assimilation. Then the Borg attack. Is there a way to escape?
A combination of an interactive 3D movie and a stage performance, Borg Invasion 4D was a Star Trek: Voyager-based attraction, part of the Star Trek: The Experience series of attractions at the Las Vegas Hilton in Paradise, Nevada. Borg Invasion 4D ran from 2004 to 2008. The audience enters a small theater where physically present actors portraying the Star Fleet crew greet them. The story is told through prerecorded 3D film sequences and actors' interaction with them and the audience. The story takes place some time after the end of the ST: Voyager series. The audience takes the roll of guests on a secret space station where Doctor from Voyager works with researches on creating a new DNA strain that will be resistant to the Borg's assimilation techniques. The guests are there to have themselves tested and help the research in case their DNA contains the resistant strain. Then the Borg attack. Actors lead the audience through a couple of hallways as other actors dressed as the Borg ... Written by
Saw it last weekend at the Las Vegas Hilton. It is indeed part of the Star Trek exhibit/experience there. They still have the original experience for those that are wondering.
'4D' starts of with you receiving a briefing at Conpernicus station from a Lt (live in the room with you) and the Doctor (Robert Picardo of Voyager) on the view screen. It seems that you have been identified as probably having a gene that makes you immune to the Borg nanoprobes and Star Fleet wishes to do some research with you. But before that research can start the station is attacked by a Borg cube. While the attack is underway several crewmen rush in and the floor shakes form the phaser blasts. The order is given to evacuate you to a shuttle pod. So you are quickly rushed into a passageway inside the station where before you can reach the shuttle several crewmen are attacked by the BOrg, and you yourself have some close encounters with them.
Eventually you reach the shuttle pod and are orderd to put on protective gogles (3d glasses) and enter the pod, which is a large theater decorated to look like a shuttle with a big view screen and crewmen 'flying' it. The floor will move and you will feel things such as wind and 'nanoprobes' while trying to escape. But eventually all is lost and you are pulled into the Borg cube for assimilation. After some additional 'fun' you are rescued by Capt. Janeway and the Voyager.
The whole encouter takes about 15 minutes and is great fun if you are a fan. Your ticket includes the other experience and of course a visit to Quark's Bar is a must afterwards.
