|Star Trek Spears in Blackwater Draw Museum|
A Star Trek fan, George Agogino wrote Desilu Studios in Hollywood if they would donate the spears used in a January 1967 episode titled “The Galileo Seven” for display at the newly built Blackwater Draw Museum. In this episode, Folsom-like spear points were being thrown by cavemen-like creatures at Spock and his crew after they had crash-land on a hostile planet.
Robert H. Justman, Associate Producer of Star Trek wrote back saying that they would donate two of the 15-foot spears at the cost of shipping. The spears are displayed periodically at the Blackwater Draw Museum between Portales and Clovis, New Mexico, under the direction of the Paleo-Indian Institute at Eastern New Mexico University. Dr. George Agogino was the founding director of the Paleo-Indian Institute at Eastern New Mexico University.
