The Galileo shuttlecraft from the original Star Trek series survived the harsh vacuum of space and alien attacks, at least on a soundstage, but didn't fare so well for the next 45 years stashed on back lots and outside in storage yards. Luckily, a group of dedicated fans took on the project of restoring the crumbling set piece with the help of actual ship builders. The video starts with some clips from Star Trek, and the restoration itself starts at about 5:30. The fully restored Galileo looks fantastic, and is going to be available for anyone to see because the group donated the shuttlecraft to NASA's Visitor Center at the Houston Space Center.error
