*S

*Star Trek

at the entrance




Recently my hubby, a friend, and I went to see the Star Trek exhibition at our local science center. (my friend, generously took us) Now I can tell you that I am no geek girl but I do like some sci-fi. My husband and friend on the other hand...total geek boys!

You would have thought they were tour guides. Seriously! These boys were talking "Trek" as if they had written episodes with Gene Roddenberry.  They spoke about different scenes and characters to whomever would listen. The funny thing is...some people actually did!

Did you know that what we see on TV is actually a model about this size?

I on the other hand just enjoyed reading the history of the show (after all they did have a whole time line written on the walls) and looking at things that were quite familiar to me.

It was really cool to see the different mask and costumes throughout the years and the thinking that went in to them.  It was also fun to sit on a mock up of the Enterprise's command center.

All in all just a fun day. Now that I think about it...maybe I am more of a sci-fi geek girl than I thought. 

 What do you think? Do you like Sci-fi? Tell me about it.

  1. Fascinating. Very well done, except it is the Bridge that Stephen and I are on. Command Center is Galactica.

    Oh and the mask was of Worf.

    Great post over all.

  5. I'm not a sci-fi girl, but I do so love the passion of that culture. I hope this is a traveling exhibit, yes? I'm going to look to see if its coming to Chicago's MSCI. :)
