Propworx will be holding the next installment of their Star Trek Auction series this weekend as part of Creation Entertainment’s Star Trek Las Vegas convention. With interest in Star Trek as keen as ever by both serious collectors as well as first time buyers, and happening in the midst of Creation’s flagship annual event, bidding is expected to be fast and furious this weekend.
“10% of the auction fees generated by the sale will go towards the financing of the upcoming feature film, Axanar, ” said Propworx CEO, Alec Peters. “We’re really excited to be partnered with Creation to bring a live auction of original series props and costumes to the fans.”
Seeing original Trek props and costumes come on the open market was until recently an almost unheard of occurrence, but with the recent films and spate of high quality fan productions circulating has helped coax collectors to put pieces back up on the block. At this Sunday’s auction more than 150 original props, costumes, models, and production materials will be up for bid.
Picking out what items to mention as key depends highly on what speaks to any individual fan. For costume fans there’s a Final Frontier Captain Kirk uniform and Deep Space Nine Klingon warrior uniform, as well as dozens of others from DS9, Next Generation, Voyager, and a range of the films. For those who might like one of the original filming ship models, there’s a rare filming miniature of the Klingon’s signature ship the D7 used in the award winning episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine “Trials & Tribble-ations”.
The auction will be run via LiveAuctioneers.com, and can be attended by people not only at the convention but also by submitting both pre-auction bids and participating during the auction online.
The full catalogue can be seen here.
