An auction of original props, costumes and decoration pieces from the 2009 Star Trek movie and 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness has been set for early December. Paramount Pictures is working with Prop Store who will be holding a live auction on Saturday, December 2nd with over 400 lots from J.J. Abrams first two Star Trek ‘Kelvin timeline’ movies.

‘Beyond’ not part of auction
According to a press release, the lots “are all authentic pieces used in the making of the current series of Star Trek films, and have been in storage with the studio since production [on Into Darkness] ended in 2012.” No items used for the most recent production (2016’s Star Trek Beyond) are being made available for auction.
Brandon Alinger, Prop Store COO, commented on the upcoming auction: “Prop Store is thrilled to be working with Paramount on the official auction for Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness. The 2009 film was a brilliant reboot of the series and both it and Star Trek Into Darkness are highly regarded by fans, including all of us at Prop Store. We expect to see strong interest in all of the auction content, but especially items like the Enterprise costumes, Starfleet props, and Klingon-related lots—the majority of which have never been available to the public before. It’s a good time to be a Star Trek fan.”
