The newly-restored Enterprise model is now in its new berth! Here's the details from the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum:
The Enterprise model, a genuine television star of the 1960s, now rests in the south lobby of Milestones (near the Independence Ave. entrance) in a new, state-of-the-art, climate-controlled case. From the center of the Hall, the restored Enterprise
rests with its camera-ready side on full view. Walk around to the back
to see the less-decorated port or left side, where the wires bring power
to the internal lights and motors.
The model’s internal lighting has been replaced with modern LEDs, which
will come to life at 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, and 3:00 pm local time each
day. An interactive touchscreen attached to the case allows visitors to
learn more about the model, Star Trek, and the Museum’s long interest in imagined spaceflight.
She's a beauty, all right, and now in a true place of honor:
More to come!
