That pac-man jacket is wild. I just don’t think I could pull it off…

2. Capttravis - June 17, 2010

That was a really cool tour of things from your childhood, Rod. Thank you!

3. DS9 IN PRIME TIME - June 17, 2010

That was a great video.

4. Gary - June 17, 2010

$500 for a catalog is absurd! Where do they come off charging such a ridiculous price?

5. Mikey1091 - June 17, 2010

Why is there never one of these in, New York, or for that matter, say, the EAST COAST?

6. Brian - June 17, 2010

The price is $50, not $500.

7. Polly - June 17, 2010

man, what I would do for one of those uniforms……

8. RM10019 - June 17, 2010

#5 …. are you kidding me? There was the BIGGEST TREK AUCTION EVER here in NY at Christies!!?!?!?! Where were you?

9. Anthony Pascale - June 17, 2010

typo: that’s $50 for catalog

10. Zebonka - June 17, 2010

In a way, most of this stuff seems way too priceless – the kind of stuff that I’d never consider selling if it were from my family history. I mean it’s for charity, so I hope it goes well, but in another way I almost hope that most of this stuff stays where it is. I’m overly sentimental though.

11. Lt. Bailey - June 17, 2010

I bought the catalog a month ago just to have it. I highly doubt I will bid on anything. The catalog is nicely done and worth it to me.

I was sorry I passed up the chance to buy the Christies catalog of ST items when I was I at the CON in Las Vegas back in 2006. Ther was some one offering a Christies catalog about 9 or 10 months ago for $1000+ on Ebay…. I don’t think it sold.

12. JHarris - June 17, 2010

It’d be cool if they had a copy of the “God Thing” script. For those who don’t know “The God Thing” was Roddenberry’s first attempt at a Star Trek Movie wayyy back in 1975 or so.

13. CmdrR - June 17, 2010

Nicely done, Rod.

So, Shatner’s hog bucks go to horses. What are the other charities?

14. MC1 Doug - June 17, 2010

I think the fact that these items are all being sold to benefit charity is the Roddenberry way through and through.

Beautiful tour… this is your life, Rod…

15. Gorn Captain - June 17, 2010

That was neat to see.

I wonder if the three foot Enterprise model from TOS that used to grace Gene’s desk will ever be found?

16. Gabriel Bell - June 17, 2010

5. Seriously? And I don’t say this to be mean (and frankly I’m not being mean), but that comment is just so ignorant. Does it matter at all to you be accurate or truthful in your statements or did you just decide to write about how you apparently perceive the world?

Or maybe the jokes on me and you were being sarcastic. I really wish that were the case.

17. The Real Kobyiashi Maru - June 17, 2010

Maybe i’m not informed… or just ignorant… but is Rod gay??

18. virgin vulcan basement nerd - June 17, 2010

17. OMG… With all due respect, sir:

NOYB for one thing, and STFU for another. IMO.

Live long and prosper. \\//,

19. TJ Trek - June 17, 2010

I’d be down on this 100% if it weren’t for the fact that none of this money is going to benefit Rod personally. I’m just glad this guy isn’t useing this and star trek to make a bunch of money. Hands off to him, for allowing the money to go to charity

20. Will_H - June 17, 2010

10-

I think they’ve already sold too much, even if it’s for charity. To me the Christies auction sold too many things that were key pieces of history. A uniform or prop here or there is ok to me, but when you get to things like the original ship models and these pieces of Roddenberry history, just seems too much to me. And 17, does it matter?

21. Jim Nightshade - June 17, 2010

Its nice to see trek appearances n items in vegas at a location other than the las vegas hilton–since they closed down the experience its bout time some other locations profited from a trek connection-planet hollywood used to be the aladdin-great hotel n mall—and with the ph connection to movies tv n hollywood its appropiate also–

22. Jorg Sacul - June 18, 2010

#15… It is hidden in someone’s closet, I’m sure. I wish I had a copy of the picture I saw once, it was baby/toddler Rod, straddling that model!

23. orion - June 18, 2010

Wish it was during the week of the Vegas Trek con…

24. Victor Hugo - June 18, 2010

These things belong in a museum.

Besides, selling your family´s personal belongings, for so many years, seems a little…scavenger like.

Honestly, this is quite creepy.

25. Gorn Captain - June 18, 2010

What part of “it’s for charity” did you not get?

And speaking from personal experience, it’s impossible to keep everything your parents owned. I’m sure Rod is keeping some items.

26. Enterprisingguy - June 20, 2010

I share your experience #25. My wife’s parent’s estate went to auction last year. We kept a few keepsakes that were special to her. But the rest was sold. There’s no way we could incorporate a life time of accumulated belongings into our own home.

The funny thing is, seeing all of their belongings being scattered to the four corners felt even more final than when they passed. Now the home and all they treasured were gone as well. It must have been hard for Rod to see the family furniture, with all those memories attached, sitting in the middle of an auction house. Doing what he did for charity was a class act!
