First! God I wish I had the cash for this kinda crap.

2. Sean4000 - December 13, 2007

If I ahd the money I’d buy some of this stuff.

Might see the Star Trek Tour in Seattle, then go to Paul Allen’s sci-fi museum to see THE chair. Don’t own any props but would be nice to someday have something actually used on screen. The thought of cuing up an ep and holding up a hunk of plastic and pointing to the screen and squealing “See? See?” to my guests would be fun. They would probably back away slowly and ask to leave. Trekkers are so misunderstood.

So what size is Uhura’s uni? Not that I could fill it out w/o some serious bra stuffing, but WTF. That’s what tailors are for!

Peace. Live long and prosper.

This auctioning of Star Trek items makes me ill, don’t know why exactly.

6. Reign1701A - December 13, 2007

Yeah I’d rather see all these props preserved for the public exhibition, not in some rich a-hole’s basement. It especially upsets me that both the glorious Enterprise-refit/A model and the Enterprise-D filming models are in some private collection. Really sad, but still, if I had the cash I’d probably buy some stuff anyway.

7. Bart - December 13, 2007

What happened to Picards chair from the Enterprise-D??

8. jon1701 - December 13, 2007

7# ^ I’m pretty sure it was stolen prior to filming on GENERATIONS.

The one featured in that movie was a quickly-put-together mock up.

9. Ves - December 13, 2007

Do you think I’d have a case if I bought the “Working Cardassian tricorder”, then sued the seller once it failed to detect subspace micro-fluctuations and ionic transporter residue?

10. Ali - December 13, 2007

Who is Uhuru?

11. Jupiter1701 - December 13, 2007

Word is the hottest item on the list is Worf’s pimple from Insurrection.

12. Benjamin - December 13, 2007

When I glanced at the title I could have swore it said “Picard’s Hair on auction.”

Which would have been a very short auction.

13. CmdrR - December 13, 2007

Vulcanista in Uhura’s mini?
Get the crash cart! Charging… CLEAR! zzzzZZZZZattt!

there, I’m better…

14. Joshua Reid - December 13, 2007

new “uniform” pics at JFX… I think they are decoys myself, but who knows???

Its a shame that in addition to Uhuru’s uniform, they aren’t auctioning items of Kurk, Spawk, Mack Koy, Skatty, Soolou, and Checkhoff.

16. bill hiro - December 13, 2007

Re: #14, they’re not as horrible as I feared and could conceivably be something pre-TOS, but TOS it ain’t.

17. DavidM - December 13, 2007

“Uhuru”

I guess we know who wrote the credits for Star Trek VI now. :)

18. Jon - December 13, 2007

I agree with some of the posters here…auctioning this material is a disgrace and a big swipe at the true fans. The auction from awhile back that Paramount conducted “for the fans” (yeah, right) was such a blatant cash-grab that it made me quite ill…I might have felt better if Paramount had just been honest and said that they wanted the money…

I guess it points towards the darker side of capitalism (which I generally agree is the best system we have), but this material really belongs in a musuem for all to see, not in some rich fans basement for only a select few to ever enjoy…

All true fans should band together and refuse to buy this stuff…but I’m sure that that will never happen… :(

19. Joshua Reid - December 13, 2007

#16 from some of the reports, these might just be Dress Uniforms, i have conflicting stories from different sites. They certainly look like dress uniforms.

20. J C - December 13, 2007

Watch the value of these props and uniforms plummet.

21. Noleuser - December 13, 2007

I really think it’s wrong to auction off certain Trek props. The fact that the Ent 1701-D, DS9, and Voyager belong to someone is distressing. They should be kept some place where all Trek fans can see them, like The Star Trek Experience in Vegas.

22. CmdrR - December 13, 2007

9 Ves – Do you think I’d have a case if I bought the “Working Cardassian tricorder”, then sued the seller once it failed to detect subspace micro-fluctuations and ionic transporter residue?

Only if you retain the services of Samuel T. Gogley.

Maybe Vulcanista would be kind enough to post a picture of her own beautiful face so we could photoshop it onto Uhura’s uniform……now THERE would be a nice screensaver!!

C’mon Vulcanista……..be a sport!! :)

25. The Vulcanista - December 13, 2007

Harry,

Only if I could arrange a photo shoot with Mr. Nimoy. He can make *anyone* look good!

Hmmm…wouldn’t that be sumpin’!

Peace. Live long and prosper.

26. Harry Ballz - December 13, 2007

Nimoy is good at photographing nudes…..so yes….that’s even better!

He’ll shoot you in the nude, post it on this site and then we’ll simply superimpose Uhura’s uniform over your naked body……no, really…..we will……..I promise…………..well, maybe after 6 or 7 hours!! :)

27. The Vulcanista - December 13, 2007

Harry,

LOL, and eww!!

Peace. Live long and prosper.

#14 those uniforms must be decoys as the insignia is for the Enterprise crew. Since bck in the TOS era each ship and/or starbase had its own design. This does not look like a uniform I can imagine to fit the starship enterprise. But then again urban is McCoy.

29. I AM THX-1138 - December 13, 2007

Vulcanista–

There is a female red Lt. uniform at the Science Fiction Museum that bears a striking resemblance to Uhura’s uni but I can’t for the life of me recall if it was worn by Nichelle Nichols. I would say it was about a size 3.

BTW #3–The Chair looks pretty good for it’s age. It sits right under the Enterprise they used for Trials and Tribble-ations and flanked by Kirk’s and Spock’s tunics from the original series. They also had the Little model of the Enterprise seen outside the K7 station window in The Trouble with Tribbles. See ya’ in C@L.

30. TJ Trek - December 14, 2007

Yes, the chair for GENERATIONS was stolen. I remember hearing that, on some comentary or other.

31. The Vulcanista - December 14, 2007

#29 THX

Size THREE??? YIKES!

NN was way too *healthy* looking to be a size 3. Must have been a sample. Size 3 means you’re either a preteen girl, or you need to eat something besides Tic-Tacs and Diet Sprite at every meal. }:-)

Peace. Live long and prosper.

32. Harry Ballz - December 14, 2007

Some people like a little meat on the bones……..more cushion for the pushin’ and all that! :)

33. I AM THX-1138 - December 15, 2007

They had a LOT of Uhura’s stuff there, but like I said, I just don’t recall seeing her uni. Maybe it was one of the nubile background extras uni’s. It was a bit difficult to get a feel for the size of the thing because there wasn’t much material there.

On another note, they had Ann Frances’ skimpy little outfit from Forbidden Planet on display as well. My goodness, she must have been a tiny little thing! The outfit was still in immaculate shape, BTW.
