Fully restored Star Trek Galileo Spaceship to call Space Center Houston home July 31
Space Center Houston will publicly unveil Galileo, the newly restored spaceship prop featured in the 1967 Star Trek episode “The Galileo Seven” after a yearlong restoration project lead by Adam Schnieder, a die-hard Star Trek fan and memorabilia collector. The life-size spaceship will be on permanent display inside Space Center Houston’s Zero-G Diner and will be one of only a few exhibitions in the world where visitors can see iconic sci-fi history that has influenced generations of innovators.
“Science fiction, especially a series like Star Trek, has inspired many astronauts and engineers,” said Richard Allen, president and CEO of Space Center Houston. “This exciting new addition to our collection connects and aligns with our ongoing mission to motivate, stimulate and inspire young minds to consider careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).”
Actors from the Star Trek television series, made possible by Space City Con will be part of the memorable event including original Star Trek cast member Don Marshall who appeared in The Galileo Seven episode as Lt. Boma; Robert Picardo who played The Doctor on Star Trek: Voyager; Galvestonian Tracy Scoggins who portrayed a Cardassian scientist in an episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as well as Monica Colby in the popular 1980s drama Dynasty; Denise Crosby who played Security Chief Tasha Yar in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Gil Gerard, who appeared as a Starfleet Admiral from the new episode Star Trek Phase II and is best known as Captain William Buck Rogers in Buck Rogers in the 25th Century as well as Marshall Teague who played supporting roles in both Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager.
