EMP Museum’s “Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds” examines the sci-fi franchise’s rich history in fascinating detail. As Seattle Times reviewer Gillian G. Gaar wrote when the show opened in May, it should delight “Star Trek” fans with its wide range of more than 100 items, which includes the costumes of all five “Star Trek” captains; gadgets such as communicators and tricorders; the outfits worn by the genetically engineered villain Khan, in his 1982 and 2013 film incarnations; and plenty of tribbles, the fuzzy creatures that wreaked havoc in “The Trouble with Tribbles” episode. A mock spaceship corridor even features purring tribbles. (For the full review, click here.) The exhibit runs 10 a.m.-5 p.m. through Feb. 17, 2017, at EMP Museum, 325 Fifth Ave. N., Seattle; $5 plus museum admission of $16-$15 (206-770-2702 orempmuseum.org).
