Star Trek Takes Over London Underground 'Tube Train' Station

 

As part of an advertising promotion by internet giant Amazon, on 15th and 16th January 2020 Piccadilly Circus London Underground (subway / metro) tube station was renamed Picardilly Circus.

 

The promotion was for a new Star Trek series which it will be possible to watch on the Amazon Prime streaming television service.

 

The new series is called Star Trek:Picard - the name is in honour of Jean-Luc Picard who is the central character.

 

This railway station is in a well known part of London which will be recognised by almost everyone who has visited London and this film also includes a couple of street scenes showing the general area, station entrance, iconic double deck red buses and more.

 

This film poses a question: who wants to have their atoms scrambled by a transporter in the hope that they are correctly reassembled afterwards when you can travel on a London Underground Tube Train?

Here in the US it premieres Thurs Jan 23. As I understand it, you can get to it via Prime, but it's not free. You have to subscribe to CBS All Access ($5.99/month I think). 

 

We will definitely be watching it!!

I'm waiting for Orville to resume on Fox.  It's funny, while hitting the Star Trek notes, & exploring some issues without heavy handedness. 

My son, a true Trekkie, did go check it out.
