BEVERLY HILLS — Everyone got to sit in the captain’s chair!

That’s the report from Jennifer Cole, who took many photos when the USS Angeles explored “Star Trek: Discovery — Fight for the Future,” an exhibit at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills.

Gloria Rodriguez, Jeremy Kranz and Kathy Carder joined Jennifer on the June 15 mission.

The exhibit featured everything from USS Discovery uniforms to other costumes and the Red Angel’s suit, which, as fans know, does more than fly. The Red Angel played a crucial part for the series, which concluded its second season on CBS All Access, a streaming service.

Also on display are props, makeup prosthetics and concept art.

“Fight for the Future” impressed Jennifer.

“Wow, that was a fun event! It’s not as big as other ‘Star Trek’ exhibits, but it does include a captain’s chair!” Jennifer told Angels Flight, the USS Angeles newsletter. “Everyone got a moment in the ‘center seat’!”

The free exhibit runs through July 7 at the Paley Center, 465 N. Beverly Drive, at South Santa Monica Boulevard in Beverly Hills. For more information, go to www.paleycenter.org.

More photos and details will appear in the September edition of Angels Flight. To receive the publication, click on “Join us” above.
