‘Star Trek’ Exhibit’s 5-Year Mission Ends at Skirball Cultural Center

Space may be the last frontier, but the Skirball Cultural Center is the final stop on this exhibit’s journey.

“Star Trek” fans can beam themselves into the middle of a pop-culture and sci-fi phenomenon on October 7th, when “Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds,” opens at the Los Angeles Institute.

“It explores all the worlds and characters of ‘Star Trek’,” said Laura Mart, managing curator of the Skirball exhibition. “As a Star Trek fan you get to see these amazing artworks and fun TV costumes up close, I really love it,” she said.

The exhibit is made up of over 100 artifacts, set pieces, costumes, props, scripts and videos that span the more than 50-year history of the Gene Roddenberry TV show and all of its other TV and movie spin-offs. It was originally launched to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the series, which aired between 1966–1969.

It was put together by the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle, where the exhibition first ran from May 2016 to May 2018, before traveling to other locations. The Skirball Center will be the final stop of the exhibition.

“Thereafter, the costumes and props will go back to their owners because most of them are on loan to us from private collectors,” said Brooks Peck, Museum of Pop Culture senior curator of the exhibition.

The original series featured Captain James T. Kirk and his crew, who went to space on a five-year mission, “to explore strange new worlds, to seek new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where there are no humans.” Gone. Before.” It spanned seven television series, 13 films, novels, comics and games.

There are lots of cool things to see throughout the history of the franchise, but the goal of the exhibit goes much deeper than just showcasing memorabilia. The installation explores the show’s themes of optimism, equality and humanity, and its continuing impact on modern culture and technology.
