Elliott Halpern, executive producer of “Building Star Trek”

“Building Star Trek” is a two-hour special premiering Sunday night, September 4 at 7:00 central on the Smithsonian Channel.  The special will look at Star Trek’s far-reaching influence on science and technology.  We discussed what innovations we’ll see featured in the special, the work being done by the Smithsonian to restore the original 11-foot model of the Enterprise, and why Star Trek continues to influence generations of new scientists.
