Star Trek Shuttle Simulator On The Block

This USS Galileo simulator would make a most excellent fortress of nerditude.

According to the seller:

Remember those days, as a child, when you pretended to be a daring captain of a starship? Or when you pretended to be the brave crew? Why pretend? The USS Galileo, from Alpine School District’s Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center in Pleasant Grove, is now up for sale. Those days of pretend are over, a real starship for the taking. The USS Galileo is a space ship simulator, complete with stations, networking, speakers, a main viewscreen, and anything a futuristic starship should have. The Space Education Center built a new Galileo so we must sadly sell our old Galileo.

The reserve price has not yet been stated, but given that the current bid is $1000, there is a good chance that it is set fairly high. If you do want to take this thing home, you will have to get yourself to Utah and bring enough muscle to load it onto your own truck.
