Star Trek auction at SciFi Museum

Put on your Vulcan ears and get ready to go where no auction house has gone before.


CHRISTIE’S IMAGES LTD. 2006

For the Starfleet commander who has (almost) everything.

More than 1,000 props, costumes, models and set pieces from 40 years of Star Trek will be auctioned off by Christie’s in October — at least those that Paul Allen doesn’t already own.

A preview of the goods will be held Sept. 8-10 at Allen’s Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame in Seattle. The three-day celebration includes appearances by Star Trek cast members Nichelle Nichols (Lietenant Uhura), George Takei (Sulu) and Walter Koenig (Chekov) and others.

Other speakers are real science luminaries: Martin Cooper, inventor of the first portable cell phone; Marc Raymond, director of Deep Space 1 at Jet Propulsion Laboratories, and Seth Shostak, senior astronomer at the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute.

Want a tribble? No trouble

Some of the top Star Trek items to be auctioned include original models of the Starship Enterprise and costumes worn by William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and Patrick Stewart. Nothing screams intergalactic heat louder than a form-fitting gold polyester top with that trademark arrowhead logo.

Star Trek’s official 40th anniversary is Sept. 8. Don’t expect Microsoft Research to get a lot of work done that day.
