Another big collection of Star Trek memorabilia is going up for auction later this month with dozens of screen-used props, costumes, and models from the TOS era and beyond.
Star Trek history up for sale
Heritage Auctions is holding another auction of Star Trek memorabilia on February 22nd. The Star Trek Hollywood & Entertainment Signature Auction includes a total of 75 lots, primarily from Star Trek: The Original Series, but also a few from the TOS movies and even some from the unmade Phase II series. There are also a handful of items from the TNG era as well. This Star Trek auction is curated from a number of different collectors.
“The items come from numerous collectors and represent the best of the best in terms of condition and significance,” says Heritage Auctions Executive Vice President Joe Maddalena. “They represent decades of collecting and make up a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The tunics alone would be impossible to find in one place, and this is an extraordinarily special auction of which we’re immensely proud.”
Costumes are a focus of the auction, including three screen-used Mirror Universe uniforms from the TOS episode “Mirror, Mirror.” The William Shatner “Captain Kirk” (3) Piece Alternate Universe Ensemble has an opening bid of $30,000, as does the Leonard Nimoy “Spock” (2) Piece Alternate Universe Ensemble. The George Takei “Lt. Sulu” (3) Piece Ensemble has an opening bid of $10,000.
And there are many more TOS Starfleet uniforms, including the tunic worn by Majel Barrett’s Number One in the pilot “The Cage” (opening bid $4000). There is also an original Klingon costume from “The Day of the Dove,” and Subcommander Tal’s from “The Enterprise Incident” (both with opening bids of $3,000).
Among the most recognizable props in this event is the model of the K-7 space station re-created for the Deep Space Nine episode “Trials and Tribble-ations.” Modelmaker Greg Jein had a long history with Trek, dating back to 1979’s The Motion Picture and he received his lone Emmy nomination for “Trials and Tribble-ations.” The opening bid is $20,000.
There are a number of props included in the action including a “Thrall” Weapon from “Gamesters of Triskelion” (opening bid $,3000), Ricardo Montalban “Khan” Signature Left-Hand Glove from Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan (opening bid $2,500), and a Klingon Disruptor Weapon from Star Trek: Phase II (opening bid $2,500).
Also up for auction are a few signed posters, prints, cast photos, and sketches. This includes unit production manager Mel Efros’ on-set production bible from Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. (opening bid $600).
The auction will be held on February 22nd and bidding is now open online. Prices are expected to well exceed opening bid prices for many of these items. Recent auctions have seen items go for many times their minimums, with some items selling for six figures in 2021.
