Celebrations will be held concurrently in the IMAX theaters at our Washington, DC location and Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, VA. The evening will be introduced live in Washington and by simulcast to Chantilly by Margaret Weitekamp, the museum’s curator of social and cultural dimensions of spaceflight; Rod Roddenberry, son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry; and Bjo and John Trimble, two of Star Trek’s founding fans.
