MoPOP Sets Course For Star Trek: Mission Chicago

The timeline of Star Trek

The Museum of Pop Culture is setting course for the Windy City this week and touching down at Star Trek: Mission Chicago, the ultimate all-ages official Star Trek fan convention put on by ViacomCBS and ReedPop. 

From Friday, April 8 through Sunday, April 10, MoPOP will have an on-site presence at the McCormick Place Convention Center, offering behind-the-scenes coverage of the event on the museum's social media channels, as well as providing an up-close-and-personal look at the official timeline of Star Trek for event goers.

As seen in Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds, the exhibition that ran from 2016-2018 at MoPOP, the timeline features a visual display of how the Star Trek saga plays out across space, time, alternate timelines, and other dimensions. The diagram shows when the different Star Trek series and films take place, along with key events in that future history.
