Our Top Star Trek Objects to Celebrate the Star Trek 50th Anniversary

“Live long and prosper.”

These words have echoed throughout pop culture for almost 50 years. Spock was just one character of a myriad of others in the Star Trek franchise millions have grown to love. At the museum, our love for Star Trek takes shape in our 150 piece collection. We have props aplenty from Star Trek: Into Darkness on display in the Schaefer Planetarium and Space Object Theater, but here we’re celebrating the series’ 50th anniversary (Sept. 8, 1966) by showing you some of the pieces we haven't had a chance to put on display in the gallery...

Parka and gloves worn by Leonard Nimoy in Star Trek (2009)

Perhaps inspired by Prince? Probably not. 

“Bear Trek” Mr. Spock bear from 1991

Live long and cuddle, am I right? 

Colorforms from 1975

Time to brush up on your Trekkie literature

Prop tribble used in the original Star Trek episode “The Trouble with Tribbles."

Tribbles are soft, gentle, reproduce incredibly fast, and eat anything in existence.

Visit Schaefer Planetarium and Space Object Theatre in Beyond Spaceship Earth to see the Star Trek objects we keep on display—including the Starfleet uniform and spacesuit worn by Chris Pine as Captain Kirk in the 2013 film, Star Trek Into Darkness
