Boldly Go to Upstate New York to Board the USS Enterprise

Until 2260, you can visit the Starship Enterprise only in one place. No, it’s not Ceti Alpha V–or Hollywood. It’s Ticonderoga, New York, in a former supermarket. There, at 112 Montcalm St., a valiant would-be commander named James Cawley has constructed a precise replica of the original starship set used for Star Trek: The Original Series.

“As a character, the Enterprise is every bit as important as Kirk and Spock,” Cawley says. So when his friend, original series costume designer William Ware Theiss, left Cawley the blueprints in his will, he moved at warp factor 9 to recreate it.
