Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds at the Skirball

Exhibition runs through February 20, 2022

The Skirball Cultural Center presents the schedule of public programs for Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds, giving long-time fans as well as those who are new to Star Trek the opportunity to further their knowledge about the beloved franchise and its connections to our world. 

The in-person and online programs include film and episode screenings as well as online educational classes and discussions.

Organized by the Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP), Seattle, under license by ViacomCBS Consumer Products, the Los Angeles debut presentation of Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds showcases Star Trek’s enduring impact on culture, art, and technology over the past half century. The exhibition also explores how Star Trek broke boundaries with its daring vision of cooperation and inclusion, mirroring the Skirball’s commitment to welcome people of all communities and generations to participate in cultural experiences that celebrate discovery and hope. 

Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds opened at the Skirball on October 7, 2021, and runs through February 20, 2022. On view will be an array of rare artifacts, set pieces, and props from the television series, spinoffs, and films—many of which have never been on display in LA. Highlights include Captain Kirk’s command chair; the navigation console from the original Star Trek series; costumes worn by Leonard Nimoy, Nichelle Nichols, and Patrick Stewart (Spock, Lt. Uhura, and Captain Picard, respectively); and filming models of the U.S.S. Enterprise and U.S.S. Excelsior.
