Boldly Going to Southern California

When producers needed a large, academic building to use for establishing exterior shots of the Academy Starfleet Academy, they turned to the Oviatt Library at Cal State Northridge, with its large open green, wide flight of stairs and tall regal columns. Ain’t It Cool News reports that in addition to “futurizing” the library, the producers also placed an Aptera TYP-1 electric car capable of 300 miles per gallon, in the Academy shots for an extended cameo. Now that’s the kind of ride you can imagine Kirk zipping around in in the 23rd century.
