Building Star Trek (2016)


In this documentary props and other items from the original Star Trek series are tracked down and others are restored for display at various locations throughout the US.


When “Star Trek” first aired in 1966, it expanded the viewers’ imaginations about what was possible in their lifetimes.

Today, many of the space-age technologies displayed on the show, like space shuttles, cell phones, and desktop computers, have already gone from science fiction to science fact.

Other innovations, like warp drive, teleportation, and medical tricorders are actively in development.

Join us as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of “Star Trek” – a show that continues to inform, enrich, and inspire.
