Smithsonian Display[edit | edit source]

Based in part on a suggestion by Gene Roddenberry, an early, pre-publication, version of these deck plans were donated to the Smithsonian Institution by Franz Joseph in April of 1974. They were displayed along with the 14-foot original model of the USS Enterprise in the Smithsonian's Air and Space Museum later that summer. Mounted behind Plexiglas on a wall underneath the ship, visitors to the "Life in the Universe" display were encouraged to fill out a form indicating whether they would want to see these and similar works published (a publishing deal not having yet been worked out.)

Background[edit | edit source]

While these plans might now be considered non-canonical, they were used as a source and reference for the first three Star Trek movies. Excerpts from them were used as on screen displays in Star Trek: The Motion Picture when V'Ger was reading the Enterprise's on-board database.
