The Star Trek Exhibition was a retrospective of Paramount Pictures' original television series, curated by the National Air and Space Museum at the Smithsonian Institution. The exhibition featured original costumes, models, assorted props, photographs, and other memorabilia from the series (1, p. 8). The Museum's textile conservators loaned their expertise to the handling of costumes and accessories of the exhibition's approximately 35 figures (1, p. 23).
In conjunction with the exhibition, the Hayden Planetarium's Sky Theater presented a show created by the Museum of Science and Industry in Portland, Oregon: Orion Rendezvous: A Star Trek & Voyage of Discovery, which, featuring the voice of LaVar Burton as Commander Geordi LaForge, transformed the Theater into a Federation Starship and used a new laser graphics system. The sky show closed on June 13, 1994 (1, p. 8).
