The guys behind the Enterprise-D bridge restoration are now planning on the world’s first dedicated science fiction museum, which will exclusively show the history of sci-fi from movies, TV, art and literature, and also teach real science through science fiction, and have started a Kickstarter campaign to help fund it.
It will be an interactive museum with fully immersive environments and touch screens that will incorporate old and new footage from actors, film makers and NASA astronauts and scientists, and will present both the fact and fiction of sci-fi. This will eventually teach Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) based education in a fun new way to all ages.
Helping to develop the museum is Rhetroactive, the creative design firm that was part of the original team behind Star Trek: The Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton, the Despicable Me and Simpson’s Springfield attractions at Universal Studios, and The Grammy Museum. Other supporters of New Starship Foundation include Paramount, Gersh, Google, Bentley Systems and Entertainment Earth, as well as Star Trek actors Brent Spiner and William Shatner and numerous celebrities who wanted to take a photo in the Enterprise-D Captain’s Chair.
The guy in charge of all this is Huston Huddleston and he has some big time Star Trek related backing in the form of Ronald D. Moore, Rick Sternbach, Larry Nemecek, Doug Drexler, David Gerrold, Andrew Probert and Timothy Earls.
The concept is a grand one, as can be seen from the photo’s below, but if it does get completed in it’s entirety, promises to be an awesome experience.
