(written from a Production point of view)
Star Trek: The Exhibition was a European touring exhibition in the mid-1990s, featuring accurate reconstructions of the USS Enterprise bridge, and the USS Enterprise-D transporter, as well as an extensive prop and studio model collection, included in an exhibit for the first time since the Star Trek Smithsonian Exhibit, displays.
The Edinburgh venue, the opening leg of the European tour, attracted 190,000 visitors. In Edinburgh, the original filming models of the four-foot USS Enterprise-D, K't'inga-class and the Negh'Var-class were also part of the exhibit. However they were pulled from the exhibition by visual effect supervisors, Glenn Neufeld and Gary Hutzel, as they were needed for the production of the the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine fourth season two-part episode, "The Way of the Warrior", and were from Edinburgh onward no longer included in the exhibition tour. (Sci-Fi & Fantasy Models, issue 6, pp. 24-26; Cinefantastique, Vol 28 #4/5, 1996, p. 72) The Ambassador-class model was shortly added to the London venue only, not appearing in the later venues and the one and only time this particular model has been on tour before it was auctioned off in 2006.
