More exciting Star Trek content coming to Children's Museum of Indianapolis

Did you know today, January 2 is National Science Fiction Day? It’s also one month until Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds opens at The Children’s Museum on Feb. 2!

But that’s not all. Along with the immersive exhibit you’ve already heard so much about, a new multimedia experience will be opening on the SAME day downstairs in our Schaefer Planetarium and Space Object Theater! And there's going to be some amazing Star Trek connections!

George Takei behind the scenes recording The Future is Here—How Sci-fi Becomes Reality for The Children’s Museum


-George Takei will be the voice in the film and immersive sound and light show, The Future is Here—How Sci-fi Becomes Reality!

"From computers and information storage to communicators and video-phones, to the U.S. space program itself, Star Trek and other science fiction works have influenced reality. We hope this new film and multimedia experience inspires a new generation to become the futuristic designers of tomorrow."

Exhibit designer’s rendering of what the exhibit will look like with the escape pod serving as a centerpiece.


-A Kelvin Pod movie prop used in Star Trek: Beyond (2016) will be the new centerpiece of the Space Object Theater, with extraordinary artifacts from a variety of Star Trek movies and films surrounding it—yes, even MORE than what will appear in the exhibit! This is the first time the pod has ever been displayed in public.

Other items on display in the Schaefer Planetarium and Space Object Theater include: 
● The filming model of the planet Excalbia from the original series episode, The Savage Curtain 
● The parka that protects Ambassador Spock (Leonard Nimoy) from the arctic chill on the planet Delta Vega in Star Trek (2009) 
● The suit that allows Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) to space-jump between starships in Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) 
● A uniform worn by Lt. Uhura (Nichelle Nichols) in the original series 
● Books, artwork, and 3D objects that show visions of the future of space travel throughout time

The exhibit Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds, as well as the film featuring the voice-work of George Takei and the multimedia experience premiering in the Schaefer Planetarium and Space Object Theater, all open on Feb. 2! Opening Day festivities will include performances by our friends Five Year Mission, and so much more. 

The multimedia experience in the Schaefer Planetarium and Space Object Theater will remain open well beyond the close date of the Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds exhibit, which closes April 7.

Stay up to date by joining the Facebook Event: facebook.com/events/269056173805734 

● Both the exhibit and multimedia experience are included with museum admission.

Five(ish) Fangirls Episode #209: The Greenie Meanie


You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch
You really are a heel
You're as cuddly as a cactus, you're as charming as an eel, Mr. Grinch
You're a bad banana with a greasy black peel!

Christmas time is here, and this week we take a look at one of the icons of the season, the Grinch. We discuss our personal history with the character, the book, and the adaptations; along with some actual history and tidbits that you might not have known. Plus news, housekeeping and a tangent or two in which we might have made a few requests to the universe :-)
