SPACEDOCK: The Restoration of the Original USS Enterprise

by Conner Flynn

This is a really cool short film from Bill George that shows some of the restoration process of the original USS Enterprise on-screen model from the original Star Trek, which is currently on display at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.

A lot more work went into this model than you might think, and the fact that they so lovingly ve restored it speaks volumes about what this ship means to pop culture. The team spent about 2 years painstakingly researching and restoring every detail to make it as close to as it was when it originally appeared on screen nearly 50 years ago.

The detail paint work was done at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia. God bless the men and women who did all of this fine work.
