Star Trek: The Exhibition headed to Kennedy Space Center
TrekMovie has learned that an engagement of Star Trek: The Exhibition, the traveling exhibit of Star Trek sets, costumes, replicas and more, is headed to the Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex, located on the Florida coast about an hour from Orlando. CBS and the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex would not confirm or deny the move, but reliable sources tell TrekMovie the exhibit will open at Kennedy in June for a run through the entire summer. The engagement is said to be based mostly on the Exhibition currently showing at the Louisville Science Center (through May 22nd). This exhibit is anchored by the original Star Trek series replica bridge, but the Florida exhibition is expected to include additions.
An official announcement from the KSC should be coming soon, so stay tuned for more details here at TrekMovie.
