Yesterday we dropped into the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. And if you’re a Trekkie you’re in for a pleasant surprise.
The museum has the actual model used in the original Star Trek TV show: NCC-1701.
Gifted to the Smithsonian by Paramount Pictures here are the dimensions of the “studio model”:
- 3.3 feet in length
- the main saucer is 5 feet in diameter
- NCC-1701 stands 2 feet 8 inches in height
- the engine pods are 6 feet long
- the secondary hull is 4 feet 7 inches long
- weight: 200 lbs
