Starbase Williamson, the New Name for the Flight Deck at the Christa McAuliffe Space Center. I Like the Name - It Seems So Familiar to Me :) The Imaginarium Theater.

It's all happening at Starbase Williamson.  Six of the greatest ships in the fleet launch from there:  The Magellan, Cassini, Phoenix, Odyssey, Falcon, and Galileo.  The food in the Staff Room is worthy of extending your stay between postings and launchings.  The restrooms are the cleanest in the quadrant. The Promenade is unique in design complete with liquid oozing tiles and multicolored lightning effects - all installed to add to the visual delight of our Starfleet officers as they traverse from docking port to docking port.  And virtually anyone who is anyone currently walks or has walked the decks. 


You'll find Starbase Williamson at the Christa McAuliffe Space Center.  

On a more personal note, I'm pleased and honored to have my name on the part of the Christa McAuliffe Space Center where the magic of imagination comes alive every day for scores of students, teachers, and our patrons who visit us for private parties.  The wonderful logo making the W in Williamson, along with the entire sign itself, was designed by one of the Space Center's own - Mason Perry.  It took several iterations and back and forth emails between Mason, myself, and James Porter before we settled on the sign you see.

The sign has a few "Easter Eggs" only a long time Space Center volunteer and or staff member may know.  You'll notice an "MD" a "DW" an "A.B.S." and a "LH" making parts of the Stabase's locations.  Think for a minute and perhaps the meaning behind the lettering will strike a cord.

If you haven't been to the new Christa McAuliffe Space Center it is time you did.  Come see a star show in the wonderful, state of the art planetarium.  Then descend down the stairs into Starbase Williamson to see the new starship simulators.  If you really want to relive your childhood and teen years, book a private mission.  I'm partial to the Cassini because that's the ship I fly on Saturdays. Jon Parker is the Cassini Set Director. He is bringing back many of the Starship Voyager's old missions from the old Space Center.  The past and the future blend together perfectly at the new Space Center.  

Ad Astra!
