Please tell us they're going to keep it indoors and not out in the parking lot, because we've seen that movie before.

It's looking absolutely AMAZING! I really think it'll look better than the original ever did, partly because of modern materials but also because of the extra care given with a lot more time allotted. It's still rather incredible how great the original prop turned out given all of the constraints.

I imagine Galileo is pretty closed to being finished by now....it's like the calm before the storm!

Re: Galileo Restoration Update - April / May 2013

There are some pics from somebody's (John Moffett) Flickr stream available at the Trekweb site. Everyone is jam packed inside the building where it was refinished so it's hard to see the entire shuttle but what I see looks great.

Hopefully they will wheel her out in the parking lot where better pics can be taken.

Link deleted...looks like the pics are now private. Well, at least I got a chance to see the restoration...hope to see official pictures soon!
