Star Trek: The Exhibition Launches In St. Louis, Missouri This Weekend

Star Trek: The Exhibition has been crisscrossing the country for the last couple of years and this weekend it's beaming down to the St. Louis Science Center in St. Louis, Missouri. The exhibition includes a full-size replica of the Enterprise-D bridge, the transporter from J.J. Abrams's 2009 film Star Trek, a replica captain's chair from The Original Series, plus tons of props & costumes form the 45 years of Star Trek. Jackie Mollet, senior director of theatre, retail and exhibitions for the Science Center told the St. Louis Beacon; "Once you go through the exhibition and read a lot of the educational materials, you can see that the science fiction of 'Star Trek' really inspired today's scientists for breakthroughs in technology."

The exhibit will be at the St. Louis Science Center now through May 28th, 2012 featuring special events on select Friday nights that include a special visit from Star Trek: Voyager's holographic doctor, Robert Picardo on February 3rd. Check out the full details below.
