The Borg arm is cool :D

2. Gummy - September 18, 2009

I’d love to bid on every item here.

3. trekboi - September 18, 2009

wish they had had the bridge sketch when they did “the Art of Star Trek”

4. Anthony Thompson - September 18, 2009

3.

I doubt that bridge sketch was from TOS era. Look at the window / viewscreen. It’s 3-dimensionality and curves are much more in the spirit of TNG. This might have been a concept sketch for Phase 2, TMP or even TNG.

5. Duane - September 18, 2009

I am fairly certain that bridge sketch is from TOS but I can’t remember where I have seen it before. It may have been Starlog around 1978 or 1979, so it could possibly be a Phase II sketch. Anyone know more?

6. Spockish - September 18, 2009

I’ve seen the bridge idea in Star Log also, /it was in 78 just before Christmas I think. Did not buy it, I was spending my money on some Issac Asimov books. Never saw the Issue again.

But the drawing makes the brifge look live it’s for a Sub not a Star Ship. The US Navy even looked into using the final design for Aircraft Carriers or Battle Ships. All because the idea looked so functional and efficient.

Wonder if NASA would use the Starship bridge when they start building Inter Solar System vessels in the last half of the 21st century. But I bet they will still be fixated on Rocket ship designs from the 50’s. It will take a long time for them to make things as big as the Ships in the ASlien Movies. Would they ever dare to build a 2001 Discovery?

7. Rod of Rassilon - September 18, 2009

Those TOS glasses are SO COOL!!

8. Gorn With The Wind - September 18, 2009

I’m still using that early Macintosh computer…

9. The Original Animated Next Generation Deep Space Voyager Enterprise - September 18, 2009

I didn’t know Steve Jobs was a Trekkie period, let alone a big enough one to want to just give the Great Bird one of the first ever Macintosh-es.

10. Andy Patterson - September 18, 2009

Wow. would love to have some of those photos.

11. John Lewis, Jr. - September 18, 2009

If Jolene Blalock came in the jumpsuit, I’d scrounge up 3,000 bucks. :) The crew glasses are really cool.

12. frederick von fronkensteen - September 18, 2009

That sketch looks like it was for TNG more than anything for Phase II, although it probably was for Phase II anyway. Glad it was rejected, whatever it was made for.

And, I would sooo love to get that lot of photos! Wow, what a blog I could have then!

13. Schiefy - September 18, 2009

There are some really great items at that auction from other genre-related movies and shows.

I really like the Gooshie badge from Quantum Leap–never realized or remembered that they had badges! ;)

14. awesome-o - September 18, 2009

the description at the site explains the bridge concept was likely from 1964.

15. Closettrekker - September 18, 2009

$4,000-6,000 for a dress?

My wife would get a spanking for that!!!

16. Porthos X - September 18, 2009

ironically that bridge concept seems to have loosely inspired DS9’S Ops LOL

17. Captain Rickover - September 18, 2009

I can see in this early bridge concept a foreshadowing of Roddenberry’s ideas for the TNG-bridge, Andy Probert designed two decades later (you can see his concepts in the “Star Trek Design”-book). Looks like a litte living room!

18. Captain Rickover - September 18, 2009

# 17
I was meaning LITTLE living room of course. Too fast typing…

19. CmdrR - September 18, 2009

Cool stuff. Wish the price points were a little closer to the reality I live in. Ah well… Hopefully, a good sale here will inspire someone to come up with high quality reproductions.

I could make a joke about all of Jolene’s acting ability still being in her costume… but, that would be mean.

20. Trelane's Mirror - September 18, 2009

#11: Do you know for certain that she didn’t?

Ba dum bum.

21. VZX - September 18, 2009

#20: LOL!

Wow….if only…..

22. The Original Spock's Brain - September 18, 2009

Those estimates seem kind of low.

23. AdamTrek - September 18, 2009

My wife could fit in that Jolene Blalock’s Enterprise Desert Jumpsuit (Lot #645)

Jiggity!

=A=

24. THX-1138 - September 18, 2009

#23

Do you have pictures to prove that? Would you like some?

Sorry, old joke. I’m certain that the mrs. is quite fetching.

25. Michael - September 18, 2009

The photos & glases look cool. The costumes are WAY over priced.
The sketch photo looks neat..too bad it never made it in a Trek sketch book. I’m sure some dude will pull out his platinium AMEX and buy some of it!

26. Steve Pinsent - September 18, 2009

The sketch looks more like the briefing room…. its a big table – chairs around it and one computer console of the side – its very much a round version of what would become the final set for the briefing room

27. Michael - September 18, 2009

That makes sense. If you look at the footage from Cage/WNMHGB, the briefing room is essentially retangular with a drop-down suspended round ceiling piece. So the set used for filming, could be a cost cutting result of this earlier most costy set design concept.

28. jas_montreal - September 18, 2009

rip-off’s !

29. rm10019 - September 18, 2009

#23 Jiggity = Epic Quagmire Fail. Giggity is the accepted spelling and pronunciation.

30. Khan was framed - September 18, 2009

I think i might buy that jumpsuit & see if I can clone her from that Vulcan blood on the leg.

Or just eat the whole thing!

Good lord she’s hot!

Why?!

Why not one more season with a diplomatic visit to the all nude senate on Delta IV!

(Note to cannon nuts: I made that one up, don’t attempt to find it in Memory Alpha)

#20 – Nice one!

31. Captain Dunsel - September 19, 2009

#9 – “I didn’t know Steve Jobs was a Trekkie period, let alone a big enough one to want to just give the Great Bird one of the first ever Macintosh-es.”

Jobs need not have been a fan at all to make such a gift. Much of Apple’s early marketing effort focused on getting Apples into the hands of “influencers”. A Roddenberry endorsement might have been seen as highly desirable, especially back in ’84.

32. richpit - September 19, 2009

I too do not believe that the “bridge sketch” is from the TOS era. It’s definitely way too TNG. It was probably a Phase II / TMP design. I bet it wasn’t even done by Matt Jefferies, as it doesn’t at all look like his style.

Just my 2 cents.

Oh, and I would LOVE to get that Macintosh!

33. Cranston - September 19, 2009

I don’t have any trouble believing this as one of Jeffries’s TOS designs. The curves of the bridge actually look quite consistent with bits of the Enterprise we saw in “The Cage.” The window (note: not yet a viewscreen) looks quite like the window we saw in Pike’s quarters, only bigger.

34. Will_H - September 19, 2009

I remember seeing at least one of those Klingon translator things at Great America down in the bay years ago. I really hope, though, that they’re not going to auction off everything that’s Star Trek. I know its for a good cause and all, but it seems just kinda not right that a bunch of people own those pieces of history and nobody really has access to them. Maybe its just me, though.

35. fubamushu - September 19, 2009

No offense to anyone, but before spouting your beliefs and opinions, why not check out the auction site and read the descriptions for these items?

36. fubamushu - September 19, 2009

Lot # 602

Original Matt Jefferies USS Enterprise bridge concept art for Star Trek
(NBC-TV, 1966-69)

Early color concept sketch of the bridge of the USS Enterprise, accomplished in gouache on a 12 x 16 in. sheet of blue-toned artist’s illustration board, featuring six crewmembers. Created most likely circa Fall of 1964, when the look of the Enterprise and associated sets were being brainstormed. The drawing was discovered years later on the back of an aviation drawing in Matt’s collection, and the front drawing was excised leaving this wonderful concept sketch, which has been matted and framed.

37. Sharon Cline - September 19, 2009

i AM LOOKING FOR A SERIOUS COLLECTOR.MY FRIEND WROTE THE ORIGINAL SHOWS AND LEFT ME WITH MANY,MANY AMAZING THINGS.i WANT TO SELL IT ALL TOGETHER.

38. Spockish - September 19, 2009

Matt Jefferies slipped my mind but he was like the Herman Zimmerman of the 60’s Star Trek and was highly spoke of in the early Star-Log mags. And many of his drawing and designs we not of the inside the box concepts and brillent innovative and functional ideas.

Did he also not do work for Mission Impossible the TV series, and helped talk them into using Mr. Nimoy as a agent. Also the image of Nimoy being smart helped him become a inteligent innovative spy. And Spock is what earned him that image.

To Sharron Cline, back around the opening of JJ’s Star Trek Movie there was a guy from the Denver area that had many star Trek Collection items for sale. Forget his name but think he might be found via Starland Inc. in Denver. He may be able to help you market your collection, at least point you to who can help better. He even had articles here so the staff here may help you find this guy.

39. Van Ness Gate - September 19, 2009

#31. richpit – “the “bridge sketch” is … definitely way too TNG. It was probably a Phase II / TMP design. I bet it wasn’t even done by Matt Jefferies, as it doesn’t at all look like his style”

Actually, that reminds me quite a bit of “Lost In Space”, I have no problem believing this is something that could have been contemplated as futuristic based on the way people thought of space travel prior to Roddenberry.

“Oh, and I would LOVE to get that Macintosh!”

Despite what the auction says, this is NOT the first Mac Plus off the assembly line. In fact that serial number specifically identifies the front half as a mid-1984 Mac, nowhere near the first one of those either. The “Plus upgrade” was a popular and less-expensive option to a new Plus, which Roddenberry likely had performed himself. There are several other incorrect statements that his son intends to certify.

Based on that error, I have to question if there aren’t others though ….

40. Spockish - September 19, 2009

Aditional note to Sharron Cline or others looking for things at TrekMovie, if the search engine here does not find anything (which I do not see why it can not, since it’s the same search engine used. Try Google with this:

Site:Trekmovie.com and the search word, or phrase in quotes

I use it to search for my own postings or topic articles, Ive used it on other sites so I guess the habit stopped me from using the search engine here.

41. AJ - September 19, 2009

I think the auction site should really verify the “Matt Jefferies Bridge drawing” again. It looks more like a TMP rec-room, and that red skin-tight spandex uniform is so not 1964. Buyer beware.

42. William "Blissey" Raymer - September 19, 2009

Uh, the Jolene Blalock “Enterprise” Desert Jumpsuit picture links to the page on the Alice Krige Borg Queen arm from “Endgame.”

43. Chris Rod - September 20, 2009

[looking for help]

DOES ANYONE KNOW
what the ORIGINAL TOS COTHING WAS MADE OF>EXACTLY?

thank you!! i tried the polyester cotton blend.. but it didnt seem like it.

THANK YOU!!

44. Anthony Thompson - September 20, 2009

35.

Don’t believe everything you read. In a newspaper or ESPECIALLY an auction catalog! That auction house (and seller) stands to benefit greatly if it is a TOS concept drawing rather than something much later.

Where is the proof? Is it signed, initialed or dated? No. Is the size, style and material of the drawing comparable to anything else that Jefferies produced at the outset of TOS? I don’t know the answer to that; perhaps someone else here does. Does the design depicted in the drawing make any sense as a *bridge* design (early concept or not)? No.

45. Hat Rick - September 20, 2009

If you guys want to know what the first interplanetary or even interstellar spaceships from NASA, ESA, or some other real-life space agency will probably look like, just look at the International Space Station as a starting point. That’s what the interior will probably be like; maybe a bit cleaner in the beginning. Very functional, lots of exposed conduits, things hanging in the way seeming every which way. Horribly unstarship-like, but that’s the way it’s probably gonna be for a while.

46. Captain Dunsel - September 20, 2009

#43 – “DOES ANYONE KNOW what the ORIGINAL TOS COTHING WAS MADE OF>EXACTLY?”

I don’t know about the daily uniforms, but Wm. Theiss told me in 1973 that the dress uniforms were made of a fabric called “alloskene” (I have NO idea how that is actually spelled). According to Theiss, it was a wool/synthetic blend that had already vanished from the market by the early 70’s.

47. Fubamushu - September 20, 2009

44.

Then you have never looked at Mr. Jefferies’ draft work for Star Trek or other sci-fi work from the 60’s.

Just you or others do not think it “looks right” doesn’t mean the article is not genuine.
