Museum specialists Zabih Sadighian (right) and Larry Berger do the first tests of LED lighting strips hidden inside the Star Trek starship Enterprise studio model. Their goal is to match the color temperature of the LEDs to photographs of the model from 1960s. The system uses flexible RGB LED NeoPixel strips that are adjustable and programmable remotely, allowing us to control the intensity, color temperature, and blink pattern to match original visual effects seen in the series.
