/selfbonk. I want that Pac Man Spock snow jacket.

2. The TOS Purist aka The Purolator - April 26, 2010

…that’s what the Klingon disruptor rifle looked like in the 2009 movie?!? You can’t be serious…maybe it’s good that we DIDN’T see the Klingons, because that looks like the stupidest, most un-creative gun design in history. Wow…

3. Paul Walker - April 26, 2010

The USS Las Vegas Star Trek Fan Club, Based here in Las Vegas, NV hopes to to be able to take part in this very important Charity Auction. We are anxiously awaiting to hear back from Julian’s Auctions about our possible role in this historice event in Star Trek History

4. Kaylee - April 26, 2010

Who cares about everything else…I WANT THE BIKE!!..lol

5. Jörg - April 26, 2010

Wow, three upcoming Star Trek auctions this year…
I was wondering what had happened to all the Lwaxana Troi outfits because none was sold in the 2 1/2 year It’s A Wrap! sale; now they will finally enter the market.

6. MagicDan - April 26, 2010

@#2.

I don’t know for sure, but I would guess that the gun was used for a long distance shot on the Klingons. Why waste the money and time on something seen from far away? Cheap and easy way to get a movie made.

Total guess though, might be wrong. But seems logical.

7. CmdrR - April 26, 2010

The purple dress Majel wore (and the pic inset) are from the TNG ep “Manhunt.” It was just on.

I’d kill for the model from Gene’s desk.

8. Capt Mike of the Terran Empire - April 26, 2010

If I only had the Money. Some great things there to be bought.

9. Will_H - April 26, 2010

Well at least they’re not going an auctioning off truly important stuff like they did before. I’m still mad that such a huge chunk of Trek’s legacy was sold off. But if individuals want to sell off their own items that’s fine.

10. Jeyl - April 26, 2010

@6: “Cheap and easy way to get a movie made.”

Especially when the sequence is cut for reasons even I could have seen in the first draft. Lots of planning, sets, aliens, klingon make up, wardrobe, lighting, crew, cast. All for a sequence that does nothing. You know? Money well spent.

11. British Naval Dude - April 26, 2010

I seen that too, CmmdR. TNG, not DS9. Picard’s undergarments were on too tight as well.

BND: Awwwwwwk! How comes no lass wants ta’ talks ta’ me in me new Spock 2009 overcoat. Look- tha’ puffy hands arrrrrr like them teethy tentacles from tha’ film “Tremors!” and what lass dunna’ wanna’ tremor?

NATASHA: Who is that dork with that weird hooded jacket with mittens sewn in? It’s like a reversal of those footy pajamas.

SHIRLEY: I don’t know but… but he’s not wearing pants. You think that’s a third sleeve extending out from below? I mean… wow! Supersize me!

NATASHA: You take off the hood and if he doesn’t look like Lt. Barclay, we’ll give him a go!

BND: (hopping on Kirk bike) Evenin’ lasses! Care fur’ a ride? This bike has added suspension just fur’ Kirk’s girth so ye’ two hoppin’ up would be no tribble at all.

SHIRLEY: Where you going, sailor?

BND: Ta’ play wit’ me movie models.

NATASHA: Oooooh! He knows Hollywood starlets! This guy must be hot! Let’s ride, mister!

BND: Awwwwwwk! Grand! Can’ts waits ta’ show them me movie models o’ tha’ Enterprize and Spock’s Squid ship…

SHIRLEY: Oh… my… God! Is he taking us to The Valley?!

BND: Nigh! Kentucky we go!

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr…

12. BiggestTOSfanever - April 26, 2010

To bad I don’t have the money right now, I’d bid on Spock’s coat and one of the artist rendered U.S.S. Enterprise models.

13. Anthony Thompson - April 26, 2010

Surprised that the Walk of Fame plaque is only going for an estimated $150 to $300. One of you Shatner worshippers should go for it! After all, your idol has probably even *touched* it! Wow! ; )

14. Philip Dunlop - April 26, 2010

I like those Cadet uniforms. I think I prefer them to the modernised TOS uniforms. And a chair from the Kelvin would be pretty cool too. Klingon disruptor looks awful. The aesthetic doesn’t really go with the cool masks they wore in the deleted scenes. Just as well we didn’t see them.

15. BringBackTrek - April 26, 2010

I’ve tried very hard to be open-minded and “tolerant” of the “young minds, fresh ideas” but IMHO the back half of the nuEnterprise model looks absolutely horrible in profile. I truly hope she’ll get a major refit (including engineering, of course) before the next movie.

16. Philip Dunlop - April 26, 2010

15 – I agree. The nacelles always look rear-heavy and like they’re not mounted onto the secondary hull properly, like they’re about to break off.

17. Les - April 26, 2010

I hope they get lots of money, since it’s a charity auction. Unfortunately, none of it will be from me seeing as how I’m a poor college student.

18. T'Leba - April 26, 2010

#7 is correct. Majel’s purple dress is from the TNG episode “Manhunt.” Majel wore it in the bar scene of the Dixon Hill holodeck program.

19. Jim Nightshade - April 26, 2010

Yup that episode of tng was just on scifi even tho the channel guide said stargate sg1 shoulda been on-hmm now ghost whisperer but instead its another tng episode-auctions are great but only if u have money sigh ohwell…

20. gir6 - April 26, 2010

No one could rock that jacket like Nimoy. Anybody else would look like a dork. Nimoy makes this look good.

21. Zebonka - April 26, 2010

I could die happy if I had a Rescue 911 Pinball Machine.

22. Iowagirl - April 27, 2010

“One of you Shatner worshippers should go for it! After all, your idol has probably even *touched* it!”

That’s the problem – it’s sacrosanct now, we are not worthy of touching it, only worshipping it from afar…:))

23. Jorg Sacul - April 27, 2010

Not that fans don’t deserve to own a piece of Trek history, but I think a lot of this stuff belongs in a museum for all to enjoy. But yeah, I’d kill a tribble on live TV for that Roddenberry desk model of the Enterprise-D!

24. Eric - April 27, 2010

Surprised Shatner with auction his Walk of Fame plaque.

25. Polly - April 27, 2010

oooh!!! I wanna cadet uniform! At least the jacket!!!

26. Losira - April 27, 2010

Love Luxanna’s dress she and I are the same dress size! Would not need alterations. Wonder if any more Betazoid fashions are in the offering. One charity Precios paws was Majel’s big charity. I wish some proceeds would go to them too.

27. Michael - April 27, 2010

I’d kill for the Lincoln Enterprise stuff…but alas…..in the 23rd century…I have no need for money..and thus can’t bid on it! HA!

28. Robert Gillis - April 27, 2010

I find it a little sad. Wonderful that the sale goes to charity, but it’s so final, both Gene and now Majel dead. I’m sure it’s very hard for Rod to part with these items. but I wish these Roddenberry items would go to the Smithsonian. So sad that things like the Peabody award (only one ST ever won, if I’m not mistaken) ends up in some high bidder’s house instead of on display some public place.. Just a little sad. End of an era and all that.

29. Matthewbriggs_uk - April 27, 2010

What is lincoln enterprise?

30. Neumann - April 27, 2010

I think the Spock Prime coat would be a cool coat to have, but I shouldn’t get it cause I’d WEAR it, and I know Trek fans would take umbridge with the practical use of something like that.

Ah well… maybe some designer will do recreations some day. Hey, I once met a guy selling Chrichton leathers, so why not? (I look good in that vest)…

31. naseweis - April 28, 2010

When I saw Nimoy in that coat I thought he had been eaten by the raven-aliens (TOS book “Dreams of the Raven” http://memory-alpha.org/wiki/Dreams_of_the_Raven ). They eat their victims brain and get the memories and personality of them, voice included. But they look like humanoid birds more or less.

Why does Shatner sell his plaque?

32. dep1701 - April 28, 2010

@ 29 – Lincoln Enterprises was the mail order company that Gene and Majel created while the original series was on the air to make some money on the side from Star Trek related material. They sold things like IDIC pendants, film trims ( some of which were rather valuable as they came from alternate versions of scenes or unused shots ), mimeoed copies of scripts, etc.

@15 and 16 – I’m not the biggest fan of the Nu-Enterprise either – although it HAS grown on me, over time – but in this case I have to defend it. The model in the picture actually does have sagging nacelles. The promo models were all available to view on the official Star Trek movie site, and some of the ships were properly aligned while others were not.

http://www.startrekmovie.com/modelgallery/

QMX probably didn’t put a huge amount of effort into making all of them perfect, as they knew they were going to be repainted ( and in some cases deconstructed or mangled ) by the artists. If you get one of the Target special DVD/Blu-Ray sets with the cool Enterprise disc case, you will see how the nacelles are supposed to line up with the saucer ( I will agree however that the puffy shape of the nacelles does often optically make them look droopy from many angles ).

33. Harry Ballz - April 28, 2010

31 “Why does Shatner sell his plaque?”

He probably misunderstood when his dentist told him he should reduce his plaque build-up!
