Commanding 6,000 square feet of space, exhibit areas are reminiscent of familiar locations on board the USS Enterprise, the fictional spacecraft made famous in the series. The setting utilizes the popularity of the star trek television series and motion pictures to emphasize the importance of science and literacy. If that's not enough, Virginia Air & Space Center patrons can also view a film narrated by one of the star trek series most memorable actors, Leonard Nimoy. Destiny in Space will play in the Center's giant-screen Imax Theater® during the exhibition.
