Star Trek

Yesterday we dropped into┬áthe 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
