The Fleet Museum (or the Starfleet Museum), was a museum on Earth, originally run by the United Earth Starfleet, and later the Federation, in which historic vessels or notable objects were placed on display following their decommissioning.

A.G. Robinson thought the escape pod he used to eject from NX-Alpha "should make a nice addition to the Starfleet Museum." (ENT: "First Flight")

This line of dialogue wasn't in the final draft script of "First Flight".

The legendary NX-class Enterprise was also stored in the museum following its withdrawal from active service in 2161. (ENT: "These Are the Voyages...")

A 2260s-era configured Constitution-class starship was housed there in the 2360s. Jean-Luc Picard had visited this vessel sometime prior to 2369. (TNG: "Relics")

Following the retirement of the Lancelot-class USS Leondegrance, the ship was placed on permanent display in the Fleet Museum. (PIC: "The Star Gazer" commemorative placard)

The USS Stargazer was added to the Fleet Museum after it had been recovered in 2364. (PIC: "The Star Gazer" commemorative plaque)

Following the destruction of the USS Enterprise-D, the crashed saucer was removed from Veridian III and eventually put on display in the Fleet Museum. (PIC: "The Star Gazer" commemorative plaque)

The "Ships of the Line" plaques featured in PIC: "The Star Gazer" were designed by Geoffrey Mandel, with ship artwork and pedestal design by John Eaves. [1]

In an alternate timeline, in which the USS Voyager returned to Earth in the late 2390s, Voyager landed and became a museum, located on the Presidio of San Francisco. (VOY: "Endgame")


Background information

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. [2]

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.
