Well I guess they could put anything in a museum, but at that point it would just be a replica with no real significance in itself.

A big computer with a the original 3D mesh of the ship rendered in real-time (on the uber-computers of the future) where you can zoom right in, look all around and play animations of the phasers firing, the shuttlebay opening, the nacelles and deflector going to warp mode etc.

The dinosaur sculptures they display in museums are just replicas too. And there's a replica of the Wright Flyer on display at the preserved Wright Brothers' workshop in Detroit, with the real Flyer being in the Smithsonian. Plenty of things in museums are replicas. So it's not unprecedented.

Yeah, but wasn't the idea that it's cool that at the Smithsonian is an actual production model of the Enterprise? That's something that will never happen, and I doubt they'd care for a replica of something originally digital.

^All I'm saying is that there's precedent. I was responding to a specific post saying there'd be nothing to display in a museum with all-digital FX. I simply suggested a possible way in which a museum could have something to display if it wanted such a thing. I made no claims about the realistic likelihood of such an event.
