The 24' long three-quarters scale exterior filming set of the Galileo Shuttlecraft, built in 1966 for the production of Star Trek: The Original Series and seen in the memorable 1st season episode "The Galileo Seven" (first airdate: January 5, 1967) will be sold at auction on June 28, 2012. The shuttlecraft set is heavily distressed and in need of extensive restoration; yet it remains a historic piece of TOS memorabilia.
