Star Trek: The Exhibition Coming to Germany

After its current installation in Valencia, Spain wraps up Star Trek: The Exhibition will continue its tour through Europe and head to Germany. The travelling exhibit of props, costumes and replicas will open in Potsdam near Berlin in May 2011. More details and links below.



Star Trek: The Exhibition a Highlight of Filmpark Anniversary

Filmpark Babelsberg, a theme park dedicated to filmmaking and located on the premises of renowned film production studio Babelsberg, will celebrate its 20th anniversary next year with a special attraction. From May to October 2011, visitors can peek into the future with Star Trek: The Exhibition. The organizers promise an insight into Gene Roddenberrys Star Trek unheard-of in Germany.

Some readers may remember the Star Trek World Tour in Germany, which took place in Düsseldorf in December 1998 and January 1999 and in scale and scope comes closest to the upcoming exposition. Star Trek: The Exhibition will however focus more on exhibits and less on entertainment.

The exhibition unites pieces from all the all five Star Trek television series and 11 Star Trek feature films. Highlights include an original transporter room set, large-scale models of Voyager and the Enterprise NCC-1701, and a replica of the Enterprise-D bridge, where visitors will be able to sit down in Picard’s chair and enjoy the feeling of commanding a starship.

With an exhibition space of 1500 square meters, the Babelsberg installation of Star Trek: The Exhibition will occupy even more room than its current version in Valencia. The added space will be filled by additional items out of Paramount’s collection.

Star Trek: The Exhibition ("Star Trek: Die Ausstellung") will be on display in Filmpark Babelsberg in Potsdam, Germany from May 1st until October 3rd 2011. Additional information about Filmpark Babelberg is available at (in English and German) and more details about Star Trek: The Exhibition in Germany will be provided soon at, where visitors are currently treated to a brief teaser trailer.

coming to the UK?


was going to ask that myself…

…we’ll probably be the last!?

The UK again? Wasn’t this thing there for years?

We had a Star Trek exhibition here in UK in Edinburgh in 1995 well probably not this version of i mind you – see a clip of it here:


I don’t think so?

It all seems a bit slow on the Trek news front again….

Anyone want to start some rumors?

Apparently Stephen Hawking has expressed an interest in directing Trek XII…


I just heard that George Takei has shot dead William Shatner on his doorstep…

Here in Edinburgh. How I envy you. My favorite city in the world. I’m stuck in Shanghai. Trek or no Trek Edinburgh is the greatest.

BTW, Germans love David Haselhoff.


It was in Scotland, we get nothing here in England…

Germany? Those commies.

ha ha ha

almost as good as when Noel Edmonds had shot dead Clive Anderson…

…ahhhh Chris Morris and “Brasseye”…pure genius!

You never know though, George might just do it! He doesn’t seem to want to let go of a lot of little things, does he?
Takei takes the Shat. We predicted here!

Oh god oh god oh god!!!! I’ll probably go there every weekend or so :D O_O



Lol, can you remember a pre-Spaced Simon Pegg in the 2001 special?

#6. Yes. Khan will be in the next Trek Movie. But as a Good Guy trying to Help Kirk stop the Doomsday machine from Gary Seven and Gary Mitchell.

Good for Germany to to get the Exhibition.


He was excellent as ever!

Pegg was almost as funny then as he was in the “Hamilton’s Breaks” episode of I’m Alan Partridge…”have you tried the Ladyboy?”…
I miss Norwich.
I miss England and its top quality comedy.
I miss the pubs.


I also miss real Trek news. Lets be having some Pascale!

Apparently Tom Cruise is going to play a fleet Admiral in Trek XII. Can you believe it!!!!!

Great news for German Trek fans. Just wondering if anybody has any info on the ships specifically the Voyager and Enterprise A models they look to be the restored Star Trek The Experience models. Anybody have any more pics or info on who restored them?

Trek really needs to improve its brand recognition over seas in pretty much every country Star Trek is shown outside the US if it want’s to compete on the global stage next to the likes of Star Wars, Batman and many of the other big franchises.

Bringing things like this over to countries outside of the US is good but a lot more needs to be done.

Ich bein Star Trek!

Star Trek was here in the UK twice, in 1997 and 2001, I know as visited it at the Hancock Museum here in Newcastle with my school in 97′ and then with friends in 01’…epic time! Although does need to return ;)

Will this exhibit ever travel to the US East coast or is that never going to happen? It has been stuck in California forever and now it is in Europe.


“Apparently Tom Cruise is going to be playing a fleet Admiral in Trek XII. Can you believe it!!!!!”

No, I don’t want to believe it. You’re probably joking, but even so, it’s no laughing matter. Man, I hope J.J Abrams DOES NOT CAST TOM CRUISE!!!


I do believe those are the restored models from the Experience.

I heard Trek XII was going to be a musical.
Three words: Klingon Chorus Line.

The Museo de las Ciencias Princeipe Felipe is a badass building, by the way. It would make a great shooting location for Trek…

@12 “commies?”

Thanks for the insult a…hole!

It’s coming to Germany – cool!

#12, 21
You urgently need to brush up your knowledge of Germany – not to mention your mastery of the German language… :)))

Yes!!! Finally!

Although I“m living in Bavaria, at the very south of Germany, I“ll try to make a trip up to Potsdam!

After all, there is a street named after me. LOL – or, to be more precise, it“s called “Mittelstrasse” (eng: Middle-Street”) which is essentially my familyname.

Can`t wait to see all those sets!

Hi Stephan, I was born and grew up in Bavaria – where do you live?

Yes! How many times did I have to gruntingly post something like “Damn! Why isn’t this available in Europe?”
But now the Exhibition is even coming to my country. Great news. I will be there.

Re 12: Actually, the current Merkel administration is almost as conservative as your GOP, though not nearly as much as the Tea Party.

This is great news. See you in Potsdam.

They need to drop by here in BRAZIL, pluize! We had the “Star Wars Expo” in 2008, here in Sao Paulo, now we need the Star Trek one!

re the East Coast, check the Wikipedia article; they will be in Louisville, Kentucky in Jan 2011. at least that’s a bit closer.


#22, we also had the Star Trek Adventure, which lasted for over a year and I think had more less the same exhibits as this current one.

But that was years ago now, so I’d welcome a Trek exhibition in London again, since it’s in Europe anyway.

It’ll never happen in New Zealand.

The closest is Oz, but hey that’s better than a kick in the knackers i s’pose

It’ll never happen in Chicago either. By the time it does, it will be the 24th century.

Come to Dublin !!!!!!!

Finally, working in Potsdam will turn out to be an advantage, after all.

OMG you mean it made it out of California?

Whens it coming to Eire

Italy is waiting for a visit as well…

Why do so few ST events like this come to the Boston area (birthplace of Leonard Nimoy!)?

Hasn’t been much, I hope “The exhibition” does!!!

And Sudamerica????? When????????

#31 (Holger) There was a Star Trek exhibition touring the UK and Germany in the mid-1990s with the German venues being Cologne (1996) and Berlin (1997-1998). Just follow the first link posted by Captain Braxton (#22) for further reference. I still remember this as I visited the exhibitions in both Cologne and Berlin. So this isn’t the first time a Star Trek exhibition is coming to Germany. Oddly, Henning Koonert doesn’t mention this in his article. Either he doesn’t know or he’s simply forgotten.
