Star Trek: Whatever Happened To The Galileo?

12 July 2012 5:55 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The Galileo shuttlecraft seen in the original Star Trek series recently sold at auction for over $70,000 and is about to undergo a complete restoration. After the series was canceled in 1969, it spent most of its time neglected in various storage yards and hangers. Some tried to restore it in the past but because it was only designed to have a short life span as a TV prop, it’s been an expensive and uphill struggle to keep it maintained. Considering the popularity of Star Trek and the way the model of the Enterprise has been so lovingly preserved, it does seem strange that the same cant be said about the shuttle. You would think that fans of the series would be crying out for it to be placed in a museum but in fact, it’s spent most of it’s time deteriorating under a tarpaulin cover. Here is the story of the neglected shuttlecraft. »
