Here's an interesting piece about the Smithsonian restoring the original USS Enterprise. Longtime ILM veteran John Goodson is an advisor on the project along with numerous other Trek veterans like the Okudas, Rick Sternbach, and Andy Probert.

Ooh, that's cool! Now all they need is a life-sized model to hang in the Air & Space Museum! :D

Well at one you could say they did, since the Enterprise Space Shuttle was housed the Dulles facility of the Air and Space Museum ;-)
