The September issue of Air & Space / Smithsonian, featuring the cover story I desperately wanted to call Warp Corps — because it's about a corps of people whom Star Trek has inspired and influenced, you see — is now on sale at the National Air and Space Museum (both locations, on the National Mall and at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Virginia) as well as at Barnes & Noble stores and the digital retailer of your choice. You can read the feature here. Also, I'd love if if you would come buy a copy of the magazine from me for a paltry one-time fee $6.99 at the Museum during its three-day celebration of Star Trek's 50th anniversary. The event kicks off at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 8 — the evening the Original Series episode "The Man Trap" was first broadcast on NBC. 

We expanded Star Trek resident linguist Marc Okrand's contribution to the feature into a thrilling one-take video where you can hear him speak a little Klingon while I struggle with English.

I reported on how the U.S.S. Enterprise studio model used in the Original Series ended up in the Museum for WAMU's Metro Connection in 2013.

Just pretend it says "Warp Corps." It should've said "Warp Corps."
