The Starfleet Museum was a museum with several facilities that housed starships important to the history of Starfleet.

History and specifics[]

22nd century[]

In the late 22nd century, the first Starfleet Museum building was established on Memory Alpha. It opened to the public on reference stardate 1/21. (ST reference: Spaceflight Chronology, FASA RPG module: The Romulan War)

FASA stated that it was finished on reference stardate 1/06, whereas Spaceflight Chronology provided the date of 1/21.

After 2161, the decommissioned Enterprise NX-01 was given to the museum. (ENT episode: "These Are the Voyages...")

Museum ships often hadtheir interiors available for visitation. Deflector shields, weapons and warp drive systems were removed from orbiting vessels. Their positions were managed from the ground via tractor beams.

Several surviving Earth Starfleet ships from the Romulan War were transferred to the museum's holdings within ten years of its opening. Among them was a famous Juggernaut-class battlecruiser prototype, though that ship was not open to the public. (FASA RPG module: Old Soldiers Never Die)

23rd century[]

Added to museum holdings was a 2264 photo taken of the first meeting of Christopher Pike and James T. Kirk. (TOS reference: The Autobiography of James T. Kirk)

The 2260s bridge module of the Constitution-class USS Enterprise was also among its holdings. (TNG novel: Crossover)

In 2273 of the Phase II continuity, James T. Kirk took V'Ger's Ilia probe to Starfleet's Archives Building in San Francisco and showed it NASA records to prove that Voyager 2 originated from Earth. (Phase II episode: "In Thy Image")

In 2284, on reference stardate 2/2107.13, Orion pirates stole the USS Juggernaut from the museum in hopes of overhauling it for piracy. (FASA RPG modules: Old Soldiers Never Die, Star Trek IV Sourcebook Update)

In 2293, a terrorist group of humans calling itself 1992 stole the USS Yorktown from the museum and attempted to travel back in time to erase the events of the Eugenics Wars. The group, along with the Yorktown, disappeared. (ST reference: Federation: The First 150 Years)

24th century[]

In the 2360s, a Constitution-class starship was located at the museum. (TNG episode: "Relics")

Captain Jean-Luc Picard encountered a Type-1 phaser from the 23rd century, that he believed he would be able to find in this museum in 2370. (TNG novel: Requiem)

Starbase 122 also featured part of the Starfleet Museum. The USS Enterprise-A was on display there in 2369. (TNG comic: "Old Debts")

By the early 2370s, the Museum of Starfleet History was located just northeast of Starfleet Academy's Administration Center and north of the graduate dormitories. (Last Unicorn RPG module: Starfleet Academy)

Every starship that bore the name USS Enterprise (or a replica) was also stationed and placed at the museum, honoring the famous Federation starships. (ENT episode: "These Are the Voyages...")

The Daedalus-class USS Discovery was housed at the Starfleet Museum in San Francisco and was a walk-through exhibit in 2374. (DS9 - Millennium novel: The War of the Prophets)

The Starfleet Museum had a facility on Epsilon Sigma V, which also boasted a great gift shop. The Planet Killer was one of many large exhibits at this "Trophy World" in 2380. (TNG novel: Before Dishonor)

By 2399, artifacts from the USS Enterprise-D were among the holdings at the Starfleet Archive Museum in San Francisco. Jean-Luc Picard visited the facility that year. (PIC episode: "Remembrance")
