Galileo: 2012

 The path the old full-sized Galileo shuttlecraft prop has taken since Star Trek finished production back in 1969 is been a convoluted path.  After changing hands a couple of times and remaining mostly in California, it was bought by Ms. Lynne Miller in 1989 and shipped by train to her home in Ohio where some restoration efforts then began.

 To make a long story short, Ms. Miller is now selling the Galileo.  Details are here:

    Ah, me… Sad to see a part of influential television history in such sorry neglect. I hope someone will be able to give this prop a permanent home, and restore her to her former television glory.
