Those of you in the Detroit area who are jonesing for a bit of Star Trek history may want to mark your calendars for May 11th.

In a press release, the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan invited visitors to “boldly go where no one has gone before…” and enjoy the limited-engagement exhibition “Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds”. The traveling exhibit was originally developed for the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle, Washington, but has since embarked on a US tour, bringing rare artifacts and props from the franchise to museums and community spaces across the country.

Quoting the release: “Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds includes props and artifacts from all six Star Trek television series and many of the films, including a tricorder, communicator and phaser from the original series, a Borg cube, a Klingon disruptor pistol, tribbles and more. Visitors will also see original set pieces including the navigation console and rare costumes including Spock’s tunic worn by Leonard Nimoy, Lt. Uhura’s dress, Khan’s open-chest tunic, Captain Picard’s costume, a Borg costume, the alien Gorn and more.”
