Star Trek: The Exhibition is beaming out of Phoenix a week early, just days ahead of the premiere of the new film in the series.

ste021The exhibit of costumes, props and set replicas from all five Star Trek television series and 10 feature films opened in November at the Arizona Science Center.


The exhibit was set to run through May 10, but now it will close May 3 instead. Star Trek, J.J. Abrams’ addition to the franchise, opens in theaters May 8.

Arizona Science Center public relations specialist Ashley Carter said the decision to close one week early was a mutual agreement between the science center and Premiere Exhibitions, the producer of the event.

“We are bringing in LEGO Castle Adventure right after ‘Star Trek’ and in an effort to ensure that LEGO will be up and running for Memorial Day Weekend, because of move-out and move-in of exhibitions, it was decided to close one week early,” she said.

Carter said the exhibition’s contents are next destined for the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. Another arm of the exhibition, with different sets and features, is visiting the Detroit Science Center.
