Texas: ‘Star Trek’ ship Galileo arrives in Houston


Trekkies of all stripes gathered in Houston last month for the momentous unveiling of the shuttlecraft that crash-landed on a hostile planet in the 1967 Star Trek episode, “The Galileo Seven.” Adam Schneider paid $61,000 for the battered prop in an auction and spent about a year restoring the fiberglass ship. He flew in from New York to mark the unveiling at Space Center Houston, where it will be permanently displayed not far from NASA’s Mission Control.
