#FedFeed – Agencies tip their hats to Star Trek

Welcome to the #FedFeed, a daily collection of federal ephemera gathered from social media and presented for your enjoyment.

In honor of its upcoming 50th Anniversary, federal agencies are recognizing the out-sized influence Star Trek has had on American culture.

NASA is perhaps the most obvious of these.

In this video, a number of NASA employees thank Star Trek for inspiring them to be who they are.

The U.S. Postal Service dedicated a new line of stamps to the show.

And the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, in addition to featuring the studio model of the original Enterprise, is hosting events in honor of the anniversary.
