The nearly three and a half metre long model of the USS Enterprise, used during the production of the original “Star Trek” television show, that has been suspended from the roof of the gift shop in the Smithsonian Institution for almost the last fourteen years, is to be restored.
San Francisco based illustrator and concept artist Nick Acosta has created a series of images depicting scenes from the orginal “Star Trek” television show, that, by the way, first went to air forty-eight years ago, in widescreen format. This I could get into I think…
