Hundreds of Star Trek fans were on hand at Space Center Houston for the unveiling of the Galileo spaceship exhibit.
Fans well remember seeing the ship in episodes of the original Star Trek show.
The Galileo that fans saw Wednesday (7/21) was a mock up.
But to one fan, the ship she saw was more than just a prop. Star Trek fan Megan Martin said the show inspired people to pursue careers in science.
Also at the unveiling was actress Tracy Scoggins, who played a Cardassian science officer on Star Trek. Scoggins is from nearby Galveston.
Scoggins was among a dozen or so actors from iconic science fiction shows who posed for photographs in front of the Galileo prop.
