STAR TREK: THE EXHIBITION To Open In Philly May 16Tickets go on sale April 17th for Star Trek: The Exhibition at The Franklin Institute's Mandell Center in Philadelphia.

The 12,500 square foot interactive exhibition enables visitors to connect with iconic Star Trek moments and characters while celebrating the creative spirit of science fiction that gave rise to many of today's modern marvels. Produced by Premier Exhibitions, Inc. and licensed from CBS Consumer Products, STAR TREK: THE EXHIBITION contains the world's most comprehensive collection of authentic Star Trek ships, costumes and props from over 40 years of Star Trek. The Exhibition will be on display at The Franklin through September 20, 2009.


  • Bridge of the Starship Enterprise D - A detailed recreation of the bridge from the U.S.S. Enterprise as featured in the Star Trek: The Next Generation television series. The bridge set has influenced real-world design, including NASA's mission control room in Houston.
  • Sickbay and Engineering Room - Instantly recognizable to fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation, the Engineering Room was the province of Geordi La Forge, who was responsible for the ship's powerful warp engines. The ship's Sickbay was the setting for many of the show's most important scenes, where Dr. Beverly Crusher served as the ship's Chief Medical Officer. Star Trek's propulsion systems and healing techniques give us insight into today's rocket technologies and medical science.
  • Infinite Diversity Gallery - Star Trek's writers have always been true to creator Gene Roddenberry's vision of a universe without prejudice where men and women of all races work as equals dedicated to one mission. The incredible range of life in the galaxy--as seen through the imaginative eyes of Star Trek's writers and artists--is represented in the Infinite Diversity Gallery. Visitors can examine the award-winning design and craftsmanship in some of Star Trek's most amazing alien creatures, including Klingons, Cardassians, Shapeshifters and the Borg. This gallery examines the breadth of the universe, as well as current scientific programs to better understand it.
  • The History of the Future Gallery - The History of the Future features a timeline of the entire Star Trek saga and places each series and film into its historical perspective from the present-day International Space Station and NASA's return to the Moon through the future voyages of captains Archer, Kirk, Picard, Sisko, and Janeway. (Could this be the History of the Future time line from ST: The Experience?)
  • Simulator Experience - A thrill ride in a Federation shuttle craft honing in on the future's greatest menace--the Borg.
