On Thursday, November 16, 2000, the Roanoke Times ran an article about our shuttle's participation in a local museum exhibit. "Star Trek: Federation Science" ran for a few months at the Science Museum of Western Virginia, in Center in the Square in downtown Roanoke. Collins members wore Starfleet uniforms and helped explain the exhibit's links between the imaginary science of Star Trek and the real science explorations of today.
When time permits, we plan to reprint the article here. The photograph was graciously provided by the Roanoke Times and was taken by Michael William Banks.
