Rare Star Trek Memorabilia Part Of Big July Pop Culture Auction + Galileo Sells For $60,000 June 29, 2012

by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: Memorabilia,Trek Franchise , trackback

There are a couple of news updates from the world of Star Trek memorabilia and auctions. First up Profiles In History auction house is holding a massive auction in July which includes dozens of lots of rare (and pricey) Star Trek items. We also have an exclusive update on the original Galileo Shuttle from Star Trek, which sold at auction yesterday for $60,000.

 

Star Trek Part Of Massive Pop Culture Collection Auction

In July Profiles in History (the company featured on the Syfy series Hollywood Treasure) will be putting a massive private collection of TV and movie memorabilia up for action. The Dreier collection contains almost 400 lots of unique pieces of mostly genre movie and TV merchandise, which have been collected over the decades by billionaire home builder Chad Dreier. The collection includes rare items from the original Superman: The Movie, Batman, Star Wars, Willy Wonka, Battlestar Galactica, Indiana Jones, and more.

The most prominent item is probably the Captain’s Chair from the USS Enterprise E (which is estimated to sell for $60,000-$80,000). There are other interesting props and set elements including the Enterprise D dedication plaque ($2,000-$3,000) or a Geordi VISOR ($3,000-$5,000) from Generations, the gold original USS Enterprise display ship from First Contact ($2,000-$3,000), And for ‘bargain hunters’ there is a collection of isolinear chips from Nemesis ($1,000-$1,500) or a Cardassian PADD ($400-$600)

Galileo Auction Update – Sold to Restoration Group For $60,000

Yesterday the auction for Star Trek’s original Shuttle Galileo (see previous article) wrapped up and there was a bit of active bidding in the last half hour which took the price from $20,000 to a final winning bid of $60,000 (not including the buyer’s premium). TrekMovie has confirmed that the winners were Alec Peters and Adam Schneider of the Galileo Restoration.

As previously reported Galileo Restoration are dedicated to the idea of sharing restoring the shuttle to its original look and sharing it with the fans by touring it around to conventions and events as well as eventually finding a permanent home for it at a museum. Peters tells TrekMovie that they are very excited about winning and are already assembling a plan and team to return the shuttle to Starfleet readiness. We will do an update article when there are more details.


SOLD! for $60,000  to Galileo Restoration team who plan to fix it up and share it with the fans

If the guy who bought the Galileo for $60K is married and is not a milllionare, can you imagine his wife’s reaction when he pulls into their driveway with this atttached to his pickup truck! LOL :-))

2. CoolPT - June 29, 2012

Glad to see the Galileo find a good home. Can’t wait to see the restoration!!

3. Jeremiah - June 29, 2012

I thought the Enterprise E chair was stolen from the Nemesis set?

4. Emperor Mike of the Empire - June 29, 2012

Nice to see the Galilio sold to people who actually care.

5. Vultan - June 29, 2012

Choose wisely.
Bid on the Grail.

6. Tanner Waterbury - June 29, 2012

The Gallileo was apparently won by a restoration place, so its in REALLY good hands.

7. Lore - June 29, 2012

The question is, who allowed it get in this condition in the first place. I smell a Court Marshall.

8. Lt. Bailey - June 29, 2012

Nice to see that some dedicated fans got this to restore as we know it will be done right & correct. I hope that it gets a chance to travel around the country but that could be a tremendous undertaking (and expense) to do so. But what a great TOS prop to have and get your picture taken with!

9. Andy Patterson - June 29, 2012

Dude’s got some cool stuff.

10. The ste - June 29, 2012

I want that chair

11. Craiger - June 29, 2012

I wonder if that would seem to nerdy having the Enterprise E Captain’s chair as your TV watching chair? LOL.

12. Battle-scarred Sciatica - June 29, 2012

@1

ROFLMFAO!

“Hi honey, I’m home!”

13. Jon - June 29, 2012

I’m sure glad that the guys who won the G7 auction are committed to sharing when it does get restored.

My general gut reaction to these types of auctions is pretty viscerally negative. I really resent the fact that most of the folks who pick up these historical pieces just sequester them in their respective collections that the vast majority of the world will never, ever get to see again.

Stuff like this should be in a museum, not in some rich collector’s basement…

So sad, but I guess that that is one of the down-sides to capitalism. I’ll still take this system over any others, though…

14. Mudd - June 29, 2012

Alec Peters is a stand up guy and a major Trekkie! He and the restoration team will definitely do us right. Personally, I would have just build a new one for what the cost it will be to restore her…,.. And as for who let her get in that condition in the first place?? Do we really need to answer that Question???

15. Tom - June 29, 2012

Maybe Paul Allen would like to display it at his Sci Fi Museum in Seattle?

16. porthoses bitch - June 29, 2012

The cross belongs in a mueseum ! My favorite all time movie scene the hat goes on rivers head and the head comes up and its harrison ford….sorry got swept away in the rivers of nostalgia. The people at Profiles in History are a class act… andd their show is addicting. (For the recordits available on netflix.

17. THX-1138 - June 29, 2012

I watched the episode of Hollywood Treasures where they looked at some of this guys collection. Totally impressive.

And I don’t have any particular problem with someone who has money legitimately buying an object at auction and keeping it in their own house to enjoy. After all, it’s their money and their stuff. Nobody has the right to tell them what to do with it. If you want expensive items then make more money. If I were to complain too much about it I would just sound envious. It’s nice that some folks are generous enough to display publicly their cool stuff but it isn’t anyone’s divine right to get to see it.

18. Dr. Image - June 29, 2012

I thought the G7 HAD been scrapped! (??)
I had seen it at the old Lagrange Con in Cleveland years ago, but the recent aerial photos show it missing- I didn’t know it had gotten saved.
Awesome, if true.

19. BRF - June 29, 2012

The Enterprise D dedication plaque is the piece to have. That would look good discreetly placed on the wall of any home. Geeky, yet tasteful!

20. Chingatchkook - June 29, 2012

That chair would look gooooooood in my living room..

21. kmart - June 29, 2012

CBS should buy the E-e chair and have it installed in the living room of THE BIG BANG THEORY. Would be in keeping with that brilliant bit when they had what was supposed to be the Rod Taylor TIME MACHINE. And it would replace that end of the sofa Sheldon is so set on sitting on.

(only just discovered this series in reruns last month, so apologize if I sound too over-the-moon about it.)

22. Holo J - June 29, 2012

Glad to hear the Galileo has ended up with the Galileo Restoration guys. Can’t wait to see what it looks like when its fully restored.

23. Obsidian - June 29, 2012

The shuttle will be a cool thing to see when it’s done. Hopefully a documentary of the restoration will be filmed as well.

And! It could be placed in the shuttle bay of a brand new full size mock-up of the Enterprise! I’ve been wishing this for years. It could be a hotel, casino, restaurants, etc. All completely outfitted on the inside identical to tech specs. Crew quarters would be hotel rooms. Guests can roam the ship as they please. Functioning doors and turbolifts! Yeah!

24. CmdrR - June 29, 2012

While this is cool, I still dream of a day when you can order a very fine prop for under $100. Sorry, but they’re plastic and a few lightbulbs. Come one…
The TMP wrist communicator looks like it’s been through a lot.
Don’t get me wrong, if I had Zuckerburg bucks, I’d be all over these auctions. Unfortunately, my bathrobe and flipflops failed to make me rich.

25. Jon - June 29, 2012

You may have missed my point…I certainly agree that a person who has the money has every right to pick up these goodies and do whatever he or she feels like with them…that’s what capitalism and the freedoms it brings about for the masses is all about (and what so many of our so-called intellectuals seem to not quite grasp anymore, particularly when those “in charge” start telling us all how to eat, what to drive, etc., etc., but that’s another topic :) ).

I’m just merely stating the reality that I have very sad feelings :( when I read about these auctions knowing that most of the props will not see the light of day anymore once they are auctioned off to the highest bidder.

For perspective, I collect classic arcade/video games (the full-sized, coin-operated variety) from the early 1980s. I keep them all in my garage and play them at my leisure (and fix them…they break down a lot, but that’s part of the fun). And thank goodness I have a very understanding wife ;) …

But I and some fellow collectors in my area got together many years ago and decided that we should share these treasures with everyone so we now put on a show every year (our 16th show will be at the end of July if anyone is interested (http://www.caextreme.org)) wherein we all put in the significant effort to truck all of our games to a single location and let anyone and everyone play them for a weekend of old-style video arcade madness. We do charge an admission fee to cover the costs (truck rentals, convention hall rental, electricity, etc.), but really we just do it to share with everyone as in the end, we certainly don’t make any significant amount of $$$ :).

I can only hope that more folks like Paul Allen emerge who will put these true pieces of history on a public display sometime in the future…

26. Bob Tompkins - June 29, 2012

Has the 7 of 9 catsuit been laundered?

27. Dee - lvs moon' surface - June 29, 2012

I like the Geordi visor and all the Star Trek costumes……

28. Sebastian S. - June 29, 2012

Saw some of these on the show (Hollywood Treasures). Amazing collection. And I’m glad the Galileo found a loving home. Wonder how the restoration will go. I also wonder what will remain of the original when so much of it has been replaced? Is that old wood used to make the frame still in good enough condition to support a rebuilding effort, I wonder?

It’d be interesting if someone just builds a full brand new 1:1 scale Galileo shuttlecraft with a full interior (of course, the interior scale wouldn’t match the exterior as they were different set in TOS). Maybe the Phase II or Star Trek: Continues people could rent it out. It would be expensive, and probably not practical, but we ST fans have never been known for over-pragmatism….

Thought the nemesis chair was robbed too….

30. Irishtrekkie - June 29, 2012

@ 29

funny i heard that too, but maybe it was this chair that was stolen

http://movies.trekcore.com/gallery/albums/bonus_nem/behindthescenes/nemesis_commandchair.jpg

if your wondering what that is, it was from a scene that did not make it into the movie

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6b8jsrDl89M&feature=related

but even as i type this i am sure that chair ended up on star trek ent.
so yea weird

31. Irishtrekkie - June 29, 2012

@29
so anyway this is listed in imdb in the trivia section from the movie.

”Midway during shooting, the captain’s chair from the bridge set disappeared, apparently stolen. While the film crew scrambled to find a way to work around the problem, the Star Trek: Enterprise cast and crew shooting in the soundstages next door decided to have a little fun at their franchise-mate’s expense: Scott Bakula visited Patrick Stewart’s trailer to present him with a makeshift wooden “replacement” chair with the letters K-A-P-T-I-N painted on it. ”

so what they made another red chair ? and is this the one being sold ?.
someone needs to ask the owner of this collection to confirm where he
got the chair , cause it could very well be stolen.

And if so would it not still belong to Paramount ?.

32. Beamer - June 29, 2012

The Galieo Restoration Team was actually funded by other fans’ donations. If the team hadn’t won they would of returned all the money. Clearly stated on their site.

33. Chasco - June 30, 2012

#1 Right, so wives (and by definition women in general) can’t possibly be Star Trek fans?

Maybe once the ‘Galileo’ has been restored, they can have a grand opening and invite Chris Doohan to do the honours. After all, he used to play in it!

34. crazydaystrom - June 30, 2012

A bit of a typo on the pricing of Chekov’s jacket I believe.

35. Niall Johnson - June 30, 2012

@13, I tend to feel the same way, however I wonder are these things better off in the care of a fan who really loves the pieces, or being in a warehouse packed away somewhere? Also, museums, particularly entertainment museums are very difficult to keep afloat.

36. oby - June 30, 2012

It would be very cool if J.J. Abrams worked Matt Jefferies original shuttle design into the upcoming Trek movie.

37. Ruue - June 30, 2012

I want that Chair so badly!
One of the greatest captain chairs of Star Trek plus knowing Sir Patrick used it

38. Elias Javalis - June 30, 2012

I love TNG, but…6000$ for a spandex uniform, thats just plain crazy!

39. CmdrR - June 30, 2012

26. Bob Tompkins – June 29, 2012
Has the 7 of 9 catsuit been laundered?

Are you hoping it has… or that it hasn’t?

40. Red Dead Ryan - June 30, 2012

#39.

LOL!

41. Nelson - June 30, 2012

So was the Doug Drexler and Mike Okuda effort to get funding to buy the shuttlecraft a separate effort from the winning team of Alec Peters?

I was hoping the Drexler team might win, but seeing what Peters has been up to, it seems a good thing.

42. Spacecraft Guy - June 30, 2012

I have to agree with Jon, post #13.

I think that the Lucasfilm approach of keeping everything that they posibly can in their archives and control how it is exhibited is the best way to go.

Keeping acess to the originals available and reasonably priced to all will keep interest in the respective franchises alive longer than going with the whomever has the deepest pockets approach. If you have the money to spend to show the world that you are the biggest and mst devoted fan of whatever you are a fan of, you should be able to buy an exact replica (and spend as much money as you want) on the exact measurements of the original in the property owners’ archive.

The Christie’s Star Trek auction may have been the smartest financial move for Paramount to make, but a huge PR mistake. It’s understood that Star Trek exists because it generates money for Paramount. But despite the protestations that they wanted to get the models and props into the hands of fans that will love them and take care of them, the message they sent loud and clear was that your loyalty over the years means nothing, show us the money.

The model of the Enterprise E didn’t go to a loyal fan who would take care of it, wound up in some rich guy’s garage who put it up for auction on E-Bay. If you were a member of the Lucasfilm Fan Club, they would send you a cell from one of their animated series for free. It may have been a cell of a foreground plant or a background cloud, but you got something screen used. They understood that making the effort would pay off in he long run.

Perfect example is the Holltywood Trasures episode featuring the guy who owned the Don Post C-3PO replica but could’t bear to part with it. Seems to me that segement was done to answer criticism that the show was getting about it being an hour long infomercial for the super rich fan.

Once you start segregating the fan bas into the haves and the haves not so much, the inevitable result is that the more affluent get catered to and everyone else gets priced out. It’s already happened to just about all professional sports. Its in the process of happening with Star Trek. The Star Trek Exhibit at the National Air and Space Museum in 1992 was probably the last time that we were all just Trek fans and not segregated by the contents of our wallets.

The other very real downside is that the items get bought by some show producer who whill try to wring some profit out of them without much regard about acutally taking vare of them. The Star Trek:The Experience exhibits are notorious for the treatment of the models they have on display that were bought at the Christie’s auction – their treatment and display of the 3 foot Enterprise D model when I sawit in San Jose was absolutely disgraceful.

43. Shilliam Watner (Click for Trek Ships Poster) - June 30, 2012

That chair is mine. In my dreams. I couldn’t even afford Garret Wang’s used Voyager Kleenex. Not that I would want that, because I wouldn’t.

44. Shilliam Watner (Click for Trek Ships Poster) - June 30, 2012

I saw the Seven of Nine catsuit at a local museum display of sci-fi costumes. The mannequin wearing the suit was not as, um, statuesque, as Jeri Ryan. It had lost its magic ;-)

45. Harry Ballz - June 30, 2012

43. Shilliam Watner

“Garret Wang’s used Voyager Kleenex. Not that I would want that, because I wouldn’t”

Hey, Garret Wang’s Kleenex is nothing to sneeze at!!

46. Anthony Thompson - June 30, 2012

6/29/12: The original release date for the sequel. Please note, Bill Peters. : D

47. Shilliam Watner (Click for Trek Ships Poster) - July 1, 2012

45. Harry Ballz – :-)

Have you be scarce lately, Harry? Or have we just been frequenting these areas at different times? It seems I haven’t seen as much of you lately.

48. Harry Ballz - July 1, 2012

47.

What can I say?

Lately, I’ve been busier than a hooker at Charlie Sheen’s house!

49. Anthony Thompson - July 1, 2012

48.

I’d been thinking the same thing. You are missed, Harry! Hope your schedule eases up a bit soon!

50. Shilliam Watner (Click for Trek Ships Poster) - July 1, 2012

Harry – contrary to popular belief, hookers don’t really have to do that much at Charlie Sheen’s house. He quickly passes out, leaving them to hang around and deplete his drugs, booze and food. It’s like a vacation for hookers.

51. Holo J - July 1, 2012

23. Obsidian

Love the Hotel idea :)

52. Symar - July 2, 2012

Can you imagine… Having the chair and playing Bridge Commander on a home theater display with the voice recognition enabled?

53. AJ - July 2, 2012

If I bid for “Headless Superman,” and Chewbacca’s head at the same time, do I get a discount?

How about the licensing?

54. Razorgeist - July 2, 2012

Im gonna buy the 7 of 9 uniform for my girlfriend.

55. Alec Peters - July 2, 2012

Alec Peters here. Yes, Adam Schneider and I won the Galileo. As anyone who follows my blog knows, archiving Star Trek screen used props & costumes is what i love doing. I help with the CBS Star Trek archive, preserving their collection.

Doug Drexler, Mike Okuda, John Eaves and Daren Dochterman have all joined our team to help in the restoration. Of course the actual restoration work will be done by professionals in wood, metal and fiberglass work.

More information as it becomes available at http://www.galileorestoration.com.

Thanks!

Alec

56. Harry Ballz - July 2, 2012

54.

Don’t forget to blow her up first!

57. Jimtibkirk - July 2, 2012

13 … Paul Allen will probably win most of it (the chair for sure) and put it on display here. So no worries.

http://www.empmuseum.org/index.asp

58. T'Cal - July 2, 2012

Diamond Select sold Kirk’s chair for about $2700. So why hasn’t there been a replica of the 1701D’s chair or that of the 1701A, B, E, Defiant, Voyager, or NX-01? I’d likely opt for the D as would a great deal of people, I suppose.

59. Sebastian S. - July 2, 2012

# 55

Good luck with it, Alec! ;-)

60. T'Cal - July 2, 2012

For those who followed Trek in the 90′s, when there was a ton of Trek stuff available from Playmates to Franklin Mint, I had always wished that someone like FM would make a set of Enterprise ships all the same scale along with a display for them, all sold separately, every two months or so like they did with the collector plates, etc. I always imagined the display to be somewhat large so that it could hold a sailing ship, an aircraft carrier, a space shuttle, and all of the starships from the NX-01 to the 1701E. The shape would be oval with a a 3D protrusion of a section of the sea at the bottom for the sea ships, a spot to hang the shuttle on top of a 747 in the blue sky, and then slots to attach the starships in orbit in the black of space. I had always hoped that someone would do something similar for the various Starfleet phasers – all at 1:1 scale from Archer’s phase pistol, to Pikes laser, to TOS’s classic pistol, to all of the movie phasers, to all of TNG’s models. For a completist like me, it would be heaven!

61. Admiral_Bumblebee - July 3, 2012

What is the purpose of a hole in the back of a chair???

62. Enterprisingguy - July 3, 2012

61. Admiral_Bumblebee – July 3, 2012

“What is the purpose of a hole in the back of a chair???”

————————–

The logical assumption would be it’s for ventilation. But I would imagine it would also be useful for ambitious, dagger wielding bridge officers looking to secure a promotion in the Mirror Universe! :)

63. AJ - July 3, 2012

55:

It would look great in black with flame racing stripes and Jersey plates.

;-)

Just keep us abreast of the restoration, Alec. Nice to know she’s in good hands.

And learn what a ‘fart can’ is,’ Chicks dig it.

64. Aaron - July 3, 2012

Wow… Slow news week. Why do I have a deep seeded feeling that this is the calm before the storm?

65. Captain Cannon - July 3, 2012

Anyone heard of a teaser for the new movie coming out anytime soon??

66. Kelly - July 3, 2012

Hi All

I was just going through the results of the christies auction and the enterprise e captains chair was sold already in that auction

http://www.christies.com/lotfinder/lot/enterprise-e-captains-chair-4779587-details.aspx?from=salesummary&intObjectID=4779587&sid=857f29d8-f1a3-4fbc-8c7a-65f194530186

Hope someone can explain this unless this auction coming up is a replica of the one sold alreay

67. Aaron - July 3, 2012

#66 I have been involved in the film industry for a while and many times they will create multiple of all the props and significant set pieces. Its just a general rule of thumb in the industry to have a backup incase you need it. Also different films often create new ones for the individual film… So Nemesis and First Contact may have two seperate chairs but they would be almost identical in appearance.

68. Steve - July 3, 2012

@42, when did the Enterprise E go on ebay? That is my favorite of all of the ships (followed closely by the A). How much did it go for? Do we know who has it now?

69. Krik Semaj - July 3, 2012

I love Trek, but I wouldn’t waste my money on this stuff. I do however cherish my 1967 Carl Yastremski autographed baseball. Got it when I was 7 Now that’s a collectors item.

70. denny cranium - July 4, 2012

Galileo is in good hands,
Alec Peters is a stand up guy. I met him at the phase 2 shoot last month.
He did a great acting job in a scene he did (lucky guy)
And he bought lunch for the crew on a number of occasions. No small feat considering how many of us were there.
Gallileo is going to be restored properly and everyone is going to get a chance to see it.
Well done Alec

71. Alec Peters - July 4, 2012

Thanks denny.

Phase II is awesome and so many good people there. And yes, the acting bit was a blast. Thanks to James Cawley for allowing me to reprise the role of Garth of Izar.

The Galileo will be well taken care of. Big plans are already under way. John Eaves and daren Dochterman have both reached out to me to contribute to our effort.

Alec

72. tom - July 4, 2012

64, no insult intended, but we’re almost a year before the release before the movie. This isn’t the calm before the storm. Furthermore, this is just entertainment, so the word “storm” is a bit too strong.

More likely than not, the producers of this website are getting a bit disengaged.

73. Aaron - July 4, 2012

72. tom, Wow someone is a bit snippy. And jus because you say no offense intended it still doesn’t give you cart blanch. Even on the internet.

74. Hat Rick - July 4, 2012

Happy Federation Day, everybody!

(I mean, July 4th. ;-) )

75. Tom - July 4, 2012

73…..Aaron, with all due respect, I simply disagreed. I didn’t issue any insults.

76. AJ - July 4, 2012

tom:

When there is no news, there is no news. The site mods can do ‘retro-reviews’ during slow periods, or some such, but they’ve already done them.

It’s true there is a general opinion that the current news blackout is not a good thing. When JJ’s first film came out, by this point we were awash in spy-photos and plot rumors, as well as a live talk with JJ and crew from the Bridge set on the last day of filming. Today, we’ve barely a pot to piss in.

When the marketing begins, I am sure it will be a full-force effort, and we’ll all be feeling the Trek-love. Until then, we’ll hope Aaron can secure a 747 for the Galileo’s trip around Manhattan Island.

77. Tom - July 4, 2012

AJ, I agree that there’s quite often no news, and that might indeed be the case now. To be honest, I cringe when I see forced headlines. Like silly treatments of Star Trek mothers whenever Mother’s Day comes around. And “Happy First Contact Day.”

In fact, I’ll retract my statement that the producers of this site are being a bit disengaged right now. I’ve noticed in the past that they don’t post anything new even when there ARE things happen. Right now, though, that’s probably not the case.

Hey, whatever works for the site and the community that has formed around it. I just wonder how much money a site like this pulls in monthly. Kudos to the developers and owners for being as devoted as they have been throughout the years. I hope they make decent money as a return on their money, sweat and energy investment.

78. denny cranium - July 4, 2012

It was cool to be at the studio when we heard Alec had won the Galileo.
Plans were started right away to restore her.
I can’t wait to see the finished product.

79. Daoud - July 4, 2012

Tom, AJ: May the fourth be with you.

80. tom - July 4, 2012

Daoud, it’s all good. Thanks.

Well, it is The Fourth of July. Happy Independence Day! I didn’t see any mention of The Omega Glory, so I am mentioning it. Ok, so Kirk quoted the Constitution, not the Declaration. But “Freedom” is a Yang worship word.

Happy Birthday Yangs!

85. Azrael - July 4, 2012

I hope some of you guys out there got to see some fireworks today, unlike those of us in the Black Hills of South Dakota where there are absolutely no fireworks allowed this year due to massive fire danger thanks to this craptacular heat wave. *sigh* Happy birthday USA!

it’s been a week since the last post on this site.

Stuff like this should be in a museum, not in some rich collector’s basement…”

This should be especially true of any items from Indiana ‘This belongs in a museum’ Jones.

90. Anthony Thompson - July 5, 2012

One week since the last update. What gives?

91. Daoud - July 5, 2012

There’s always trektoday.com, trekbbs.com, trekpulse.com, trekweb.com and startrek.com
.
Everyone here is on trekvacation.com perhaps?

92. AJ - July 5, 2012

The fireworks over NYC last night were incredible.

93. Daoud - July 5, 2012

Yes, NYC’s were certainly better than San Diego’s! :)

94. TrekMadeMeWonder - July 5, 2012

91

Yes, but still checking TrekMovie for Trek updates daily.

95. Hat Rick - July 5, 2012

Even a webmaster deserves a break, every once in a blue Luna City. Er, Lake Armstrong.

I mean, blue Moon.

;-)

96. T'Cal - July 5, 2012

When I see this cool Trek stuff go up for auction, I long for the days when Star Trek: The Experience was in its hey day. It’ll be four years since it was closed, a very dark day indeed. I can’t believe Paramount has failed to selecte a site and apparently has no plan to. DISAPPOINTED!

Well, the Mets just won!

99. Phil - July 5, 2012

It usually takes about a week of no updates for people to start bemoaning the demise of Trekmovie…..then a new post comes along.

The Dodgers are winning, at the moment.

100. enzo schifo - July 5, 2012

Well it definately sounds like something crawled up Tom’s ass and died. Man I wonder wat nmade him so cranky. Probably had to work and couldn’t see the fireworks last night. Oh well too bad. For a man who says he doesn’t issue insults, he sure did insult quite a bit of people, weather or not it was intended. Too bad he didn’t have loving enough parents to teach him that if he doesn’t have anything nice to say he shouldn’t say anything at all!

101. Anthony Thompson - July 5, 2012

President Obama is going to beat that waffling fatcat Mormon Romneycare guy from Massachusetts!

102. Captain CHIP of the Federation Starship USS Crescendo NCC 4816 - July 5, 2012

The Los Angeles Kings are going to repeat as Stanley Cup Champions! Of course they will have a tough opponent to get through in the Minnesota Wild next season!

103. Harry Ballz - July 5, 2012

Anthony, is this your way of “testing the water” to see if a certain other Anthony is around?

104. Anthony Thompson - July 5, 2012

103.

You hit the nail on the head, Harry. : D

105. Azrael - July 5, 2012

Someone is around, I made a comment about Anthony’s no politics rule and it got deleted, why I do not know.

106. Azrael - July 5, 2012

And now I see it has reappeared, sorry then @105 if you were just testing.

107. Jim Nightshade - July 6, 2012

108. Daoud - July 6, 2012

Star Trek: Silent Running
.
I think we’ve got the title, eh? AP’s testing it out for the Boborci. ;)

109. tom - July 6, 2012

100 (ENZO):

Wow, seriously, what you posted was far more offensive than anything I said in my 3 posts (72, 75, 77)…

Seriously, break it down for me. What horrible thing did I say. Please provide a direct quote.

Then compare it to what you just said about me.

110. Danpaine - July 6, 2012

#109 – yeah, please. That should be fun for everyone to read. I’m sure we’d all care about that.

111. denny cranium - July 6, 2012

After restoration of the Galileo my understanding is it will make the convention circuit for all to see.
Alec is not going to squirrel away the Galileo (although he could -its his)

112. Just Sayin' - July 6, 2012

Tired of looking at that blasted chair and reading the ridiculous, childish comments people leave for each other. You people who want to argue and leave offensive comments need to find some other place to go and get off of trekmovie.com. Why don’t you go share a slurpee and talk about it…really.

113. Lostrod - July 6, 2012

110:

Probably not. Such is life. Given that this site hasn’t updated anything new in awhile, I suppose we’ll have to force a “fun” topic into discussion.

Khan — or NOT Khan?

Yeah, that’s much better.

115. Ernst Queller - July 6, 2012

That damned Anthony is AWOL again!! What’s the point of having a website if you don’t keep it updated? Uuuurrrrrggghhh!!!!!

If he’s out on vacation, why doesn’t he have that Spockboy or toy collector dude maintain the site? It that Kayla chick?

I mean….WTF??!!

116. Ernst Queller - July 6, 2012

*Or that Kayla chick….

117. Kara - giver of pain and delight - July 6, 2012

I wish he’d at least leave a message if he was planning to go away. I’m sure plenty of site regulars would be happy to submit guest articles, the TOS reviews never got finished so that’s a starting point.

On the other hand something unexpected might have come up. We have to remember Anthony does have a life outside of Trek!

118. Whalien - July 6, 2012

Nah, with him, it’s outta site, outta mind!

Give us peons a heads-up? Pffft!!! Don’t hold your breath!! That’ll happen about as quickly as he stops supporting Barack Insane Obama and allows fairness in political discussion here…HAHAHA!!! Which is the same as saying it’ll never happen.

119. Azrael - July 6, 2012

@118. Anthony does to allow fairness in political discussion. It is completely fair to tell all sides to take political discussion elsewhere.

120. Azrael - July 6, 2012

Sorry meant 119.

121. Robert Bernardo - July 8, 2012

Great news that the Galileo Restoration team won!

I downloaded the photos of the E-E that were tagged with the E-Bay listing, that was in August 2008. Don’t remember what the model went for, anyone here know?

123. Spacecraft Guy #2 - July 12, 2012

I bought the E-E from the guy in the garage. And its now relit, mounted, and well displayed. Sometime progress wins.

124. Spacecraft Guy - July 13, 2012

#123 Spacecraft Guy #2

Good to hear that the model is being well taken care of!

How are you displaying it ?

125. Spacecraft Guy #2 - July 15, 2012

Its 11 feet long – carefully. Mounted, relit, @ my place.
Can’t send a pic on this site, though.
