WHO WE ARE

In 2012, a fan named Huston rescued the Star Trek Enterprise D and Original Series touring Bridge sets from destruction, but there was no museum in the world willing to display them, so he and some of the biggest names in Science Fiction created the Hollywood Sci-Fi Museum WWW.HOLLYWOODSCIFI.ORG which begins touring around the world in 2017, with plans to have a permanent location in 5 years in Los Angeles. Our board members include:

• Ronald D. Moore, (Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek) • Andrew Probert, (Star Trek, Back to the Future) • Catherine "Cady" Coleman, (NASA astronaut) • Doug Drexler, (Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek) • David Gerrold, (Star Trek, Land of the Lost) • Timothy Earls, (Firefly, Iron Man 3) • Dan Madsen, (Founder of Star Wars Celebration) • Dan Curry, (Star Trek) • Greg Nicotero, (The Walking Dead), • Andre Bormanis, (Star Trek) • Ve Neill, (Hunger Games) • John Eaves, (Star Trek) • Adam Schneider, (Galileo Restoration) • Rick Sternbach, (Star Trek)

WHERE NO MUSEUM HAD GONE BEFORE

In 1974, a group of Star Trek life size figures were unveiled at the Movieland Wax Museum in Buena Park California. It was the only time all 7 main characters were created so realistically, and Trekkies from all over the world came to see them.

William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Deforest Kelly, James Doohan, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei and Walter Koenig, were molded, measured, photographed and sculpted from 1973-1981, by the legendary artist Logan Fleming, until their figures were perfect.

END OF AN ERA

In 2005, Movieland Wax Museum went out of business and all the figures were auctioned off separately, including the Star Trek figures and set. Many Trek fans, including families of the actors, bid on the figures, but one man bid higher than anyone else, so that he could keep all the figures together. Over $100,000 was spent and they were displayed once in 2006 at Star Trek Las Vegas convention, and never seen again!

THE FINAL FRONTIER

The owner of the figures knew about our 2017 would tour and asked if our Hollywood Science Fiction Museum would be interested in accepting all the figures and set, displaying them and keeping them together, of course we said yes. This Is a rare, long lost piece of Trek history, and it Is our honor to present them better than they've ever been seen before.

THE RESTORATION and TOUR

We haven't had a "crowd fundraiser" since 2014, and we've been fairly self reliant, but the opportunity to acquire these figures came so quickly, we didn't have time to get the funds through sponsors, so asking fans is our only way. Hair, paint and technical advising and repairs will be made by our board members, including Greg Nicotero's KNB, creator of The Walking Dead and TV and films.

This Star Trek Original Series Enterprise Bridge set and Spock wax figure will be introduced at Wondercon in Anaheim March 31 through April 2 2017, then the set and all figures unveiled later this year in our Hollywood Science Fiction Museum tour, beginning in Los Angeles, then around the world for the next 5 years. The tour is produced by SEE Global Entertainment, who also did the Star Trek Tour in the early 2000's. The tour will help raise money for the museum's permanent home in Los Angeles.

REWARDS

Many of our rewards aren't completed nor are the designs finalized. All will be the highest quality materials AND completely different from any previous Museum or Bridge Restoration items.

THE BUDGET

STRETCH GOAL

All funds over our goal, go directly into our STAR TREK NEXT GENERATION ENTERPRISE D BRIDGE Restoration, which will be presented late 2017, as part of our Hollywood Sci-Fi Museum Tour. In 2013 we raised $68k out of the $250,000 cost to completely restore the set, and it will FINALLY be seen.

LEGAL

The Hollywood Science Fiction Museum is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational foundation. We are not associated, sponsored or endorsed by CBS or Paramount. STAR TREK, THE ENTERPRISE and related logos and designs are owned by CBS Studios Inc. Design of Enterprise Bridge and Star Trek characters © CBS Studios.

Risks and challenges

To obtain these figures and meet the deadline for our Wondercon booth, we need to raise these additional funds immediately, and NOT have it come from the money we already raised for the museum or the Next Generation Bridge.

Like with nearly everything in our Sci-Fi Museum, including our Enterprise D Bridge set, the Oblivion Bubbleship, we were given a "Now or Never" scenario to obtain this set and figures, and we have to make it work, whatever it takes. We don't believe in a no win scenario....
