HOUSTON (AP) -- The Star Trek shuttlecraft Galileo is landing in Houston to be displayed not far from NASA’s Mission Control, which may have been able to help Mr. Spock all those years ago.

The Galileo is the shuttlecraft that crash-landed on a hostile planet in the 1967 episode “The Galileo Seven.”

The Houston Chronicle reports the bit of Trekkie memorabilia was purchased by collector Adam Schneider for $61,000.

Schneider restored the rusted prop to its previous glory. It will be displayed in the visitor center of Space Center Houston alongside real NASA spacecrafts.

Schneider says the trailer-sized shuttle will arrive in Houston in late July.

Space Center Houston spokesman Jack Moore says the Galileo will be installed by the end of the year
