German businessman Martin Netter, who owns the largest collection of Star Trek merchandise in the world, took over the attraction after previous owners, Kuma Exhibitions, closed down in November.

He said: “We have historical merchandise from the 1960s to the 2000s. We now have an even bigger shop with items I have collected over the years.

“We have new props from Voyager and the 2009 reboot movies, as well as models from the original series.

“It was all put on display today and I’m excited because I have not displayed it before.”
