“Star Trek’s” original filming model of the USS Enterprise will join the Milestones of Flight exhibit at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum.
Currently displayed at the museum store, the starship will make its move in time for the 50th anniversary of Gene Roddenberry’s “Star Trek,” which premiered on NBC in September 1966. It’s the first time the museum will include science fiction in the exhibit.
The model’s relocation is part of the museum’s extensive two-year renovation funded by Boeing, which recently donated $30 million to upgrade exhibits and education programs. Content for mobile devices and digital screens will also be a key part of the museum’s refresh.
