The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. has begun work on preserving the 11-foot (3.4 meters) model craft in an effort to make the ship resemble how it looked in the episode “The Trouble with Tribbles.” That episode was the last known modification to the model during the run of “Star Trek.” The model appeared in all 79 episodes of the original “Star Trek” TV series, which ran from 1966 to 1969.
