Melbourne is 1 of 6 Star Trek Day AR portal locations

Head over to Federation Square to feel like a Starfleet officer.

Melbourne is one of six Star Trek Day augmented reality (AR) portal locations, Paramount has recently confirmed.

Called “Star Trek Augmented Reality Delta Portals,” six cities across the globe will offer up a bit of Star Trek mixed-reality goodness.

Star Trek Day will also be celebrated with a one-of-a-kind opportunity for fans around the world with the debut of in-person Star Trek Augmented Reality Delta Portals,” Paramount said in a press release.

“Each location will have three Star Trek Deltas, each seven feet tall and featuring QR codes that, when scanned on Instagram, transform the objects into mixed-reality portals that bring the user into the world of Star Trek,” it continued. “Each augmented reality experience will be based on a current Star Trek series, featuring fully 3D alien planets, classic starships and iconic characters as they interact with both the virtual and physical worlds.”

Melbourne’s portal will be in the heart of the city, located within Federation Square.

The full list of portal locations is as follows:

  • Los Angeles, USA: The Grove (7-8 September)
  • New York, USA: Hudson Yards (7-8 September)
  • Chicago, USA: Water Tower Place (7-8 September)
  • London, UK: Science Museum (7-8 September)
