STAR TREK:  A 5 Year Mission Turns 50

50 years ago, the science fiction series Star Trek first premiered on television, and in the years since has become a world-wide cult phenomenon. In addition to the numerous films, television spin-offs, books, toys, and other properties based on the franchise, it has been noted for its influence on the world outside of science fiction. Join former Star Trek costume/prop builder Cheralyn Lambeth as she discusses the far-reaching appeal and lasting impact the franchise has had on our world, not just in the arts, but in technology and other "real-life" applications as well.

Cheralyn Lambeth is a professional costume, prop, and puppet builder whose work includes feature films (The Muppet Christmas Carol, The Patriot, Leatherheads, The Hunger Games), television shows (Dinosaurs!, Homeland, Outcast), and books (Haunted Theaters of the Carolinas, The Well Dressed Puppet, Creating the Character Costume: Tools, Tips and Talks with Top Costumers and Cosplayers). In addition, she worked for several years with Paramount Production Services, creating Star Trek costumes and props for Paramount properties such as the Star Trek Earth Tour and Star Trek: The Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton.
