INTREPID SEA, AIR & SPACE MUSEUM TO OPEN TEMPORARY EXHIBIT DISPLAY OF THE PROP SHUTTLECRAFT GALILEO FROM

STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES

***

 

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum today announced the upcoming display of its temporary exhibit, the fully restored prop Shuttlecraft Galileo, the shuttlecraft that carried the crew of starship USS Enterprise to other planets in Star Trek: The Original Series (1967–1969).  The exhibit is located in the Museum’s Space Shuttle Pavilion alongside the space shuttle Enterprise, and will open to the public on Friday, May 13 at the Museum’s free AstroCafe event.

 

This life-size prop debuted in the episode “The Galileo Seven” in 1967. Galileo, commanded by Mr. Spock, crash-lands on a hostile planet. The fictional Galileo did not survive the episode, but the model lived on, appearing in six other episodes.

 

Galileo will be on display at the Intrepid Museum through December 5, 2016. It is on loan from Space Center Houston, and is a gift of Adam and Leslie Schneider.
