"The Fleet Museum. Every legendary starship. This is their final resting place. The old space dock."

The Fleet Museum, also called the Starfleet Museum or Starship History Museum, was a museum operated by Starfleet, originally under United Earth and later the Federation. It preserved and restored museum ships and related artifacts for public display. (ENT: "First Flight"; TNG: "Relics")


The Fleet Museum was founded before the 2140s. The Enterprise NX-01 was placed in the museum, in refit configuration, following its decommissioning in 2161. (ENT: "These Are the Voyages..."; PIC: "The Bounty")

Prior to 2369, Jean-Luc Picard had visited a 2260s-era configured Constitution-class, the USS New Jersey, at the Museum. (TNG: "Relics"; PIC: "The Bounty")

Brad Boimler and Beckett Mariner once visited the museum, where they toured the NX-01 and learned about its construction. Mariner was more enthusiastic about the experience than she would later admit. (SNW: "Those Old Scientists")

By the 25th century, the museum was housed in Earth's former Spacedock One and located over Athan Prime. In 2401, it was under the stewardship of Commodore Geordi La Forge when it was visited by the USS Titan-A. After failing to get La Forge's help with disguising the Titan's transponder code, Jack Crusher and Sidney La Forge stole the cloaking device from the HMS Bounty, triggering alarms that drew Starfleet to the station. La Forge and his daughter Alandra chose to join the Titan's crew, helping to properly install the cloak. (PIC: "The Bounty")

During Frontier Day, La Forge revealed that he had rebuilt the USS Enterprise-D over the course of twenty years and it was once again a functional starship, albeit not yet fully restored. With the Borg having taken over Starfleet, La Forge led the Enterprise's old command crew to the museum to press the ship back into service. (PIC: "Võx")

In 2402, restoration on the Enterprise-D was completed and it was put in a display berth in the museum. (PIC: "The Last Generation")

Fleet Museum-Athan Prime

Appearing in the end credits of PIC Season 3

In the first draft script of "Relics", the Fleet Museum was said to be "at Memory Alpha." This placing of the museum was omitted from the installment by the time the final draft of the script was issued. [1]

Originally, the Starfleet Museum was to have been depicted in the anti-time future portrayed in Star Trek: The Next Generation series finale "All Good Things...". It was visited by Jean-Luc Picard, Data, and Geordi La Forge. Among its collection of ships, the museum contained the USS Enterprise-D, which the visiting threesome intended to commandeer in order to go on a mission Picard felt they needed to undertake. The group was given a guided tour of the facility by a tour guide who didn't know who they were. Just as the three visitors were about to leave, Admiral Riker and a team of security officers entered the museum, though the group ultimately departed on their mission anyway.
