Trekkies will have the perfect place to enjoy a little fun in the sun, come 2014, when a 1.5 billion dollar Star Trek-themed resort is scheduled to open in the Middle Eastern kingdom of Jordan.

Jordan’s King Abdullah II, a Star Trek fan who once appeared in episode of ‘Star Trek: Voyager,’ is reportedly the driving force behind bringing the resort to his country, and will be footing some of the bill for the construction costs.

“At its core, Star Trek is about bringing worlds together and about a profound hope for the future,” said Liz Kalodner, General Manager of CBS Consumer Products, which licensed ‘Star Trek’ out to the property’s developers . “We are proud to bring such a unique, interactive Star Trek property to this part of the world to be a part of Jordan’s future.”
