The sim is packed with Star Trek trivia and memorabilia from almost every season of Star Trek with heavy influences based on the original series, The Next Generation and Voyager.

The sim is based on the Vulcan Museum and  Town of Wakrubaya
After the destruction of their home world, a small group of Vulcans relocated to New Eridani (named for the star Epsilon Eridani or the star 40 Eridani, around which Vulcan is said to have orbited. The town and nearby residential areas provide a home for Vulcans and other species to live in logic and harmony, while providing an opportunity to educate visitors about Vulcan society and culture.

Roddenberry Dive Team
The Charles "Trip" Tucker III Memorial Scuba Tour (Trip was an avid scuba diver). See Capt Picard to pick up your free scuba gear. Beam over to the raft to see a movie courtesy of the Roddenberry Dive Team. Founded by Eugene "Rod" Roddenberry the son of Gene Roddenberry and Majel Barrett Roddenberry, RDT combines the philosophy of Star Trek with exploration and protection of Earth's oceans.
Dry Dock-Occasionally used as a very cool space for parties.

Being an intermediate trekkie myself, I was amazed at how much information and trek related activities the sim contained - I for one can highly recommend a visit to this entertaining location.... do not delay ... beam there today !
