The Gallileo-7 shuttlecraft was a proud vessel, that served the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise well on several episodes of Star Trek — most notably the episode that bears its name. But sadly, this amazing piece of space engineering had fallen into disrepair, until it was finally restored to spaceworthiness.
Volkswagen's new car is cool: fuel-cell powered and plug in ready. VW unveiled the sci-fi sounding "space up! blue" at the Los Angeles Auto Show Nov. 14. But why does it have to look like the boxy shuttlecraft that Mister Spock used to pilot in the 1960s? More proof that Star Trek is best left behind.
