Why can't they have some really cool things... like more models etc. Even foam-core mock-ups and ships made in the design process. I guess they belong to the effects people though - Image G wasn't it?

What about more LCARS panels!?!

Its weird seeing "Star Trek Voyager" written in the same font as the TNG title card... they must really like that font over there.

On the plus side, I don't think you'd have to pay overseas shipping.

They have LCARS panels coming out of their ears, but I think all the important ones were sold at Christie's. They do have the occasional foam model, but only the ones they used for camera tests.

Lotsa of extra vinyl letters from the old show is my guess. [Wink]

Some plans of the bridge section of the Enterprise Refit.

Enterprise-E bridge plans + engineering + Data's quarters from Nemesis

It's a shame that whoever buys these doesn't scan them and put them on the internet (or excerpts at least). They'd be invaluable to 3D modelers, among others.

One day, I'll have kids and I will build them a treehouse version of the TWOK bridge.

Ok, nobody bites on that one? Fine, I´ll do it, Jason, I´m sorry to be the one to tell you, but your kids will grow up to love Star Wars and Jar-Jar Binks...

It's just as well- they'd likely be killed doing the old "bridge dance" in a treehouse- probably rock it right outta the tree pretending to take a torpedo hit or something.

No child of mine will ever like Jar Jar- hell, it's likely that I'll have them going off to school on rainy days in their little Sith cloaks with the hoodies...

Speaking of bridges, this week they're auctioning an Excelsior bridge concept model from the production of TSfS.

Complete with Pac-Man control panel and an interesting looking space station image. Could that be a Spacedock concept design, or something from a different production?

I've never seen this anywhere before- including the auction.
Looks home-made and represents nothing- not even worth saving on my computer.

And, for some reason, it is receiving a transmission from the Big Giant Head?

Well, as to the bridge, not all to dissimilar to the way they made the TOS-bridge way back.

I'd forgotten about these auctions for a while... hard to believe they're still going on.

Anyway, this week they have wreckage of a nacelle from a Galaxy class ship used in DS9.

A large scale model of a DS9 pylon used in WotW. They had the other sections some time ago that were much better, as they included the actual weapons pods.

And a kinda chintzy mug with "CAPT" on it. An uninspired b'day present from Riker maybe? [Wink]

Wow. Those federation nacelles are hollow? this backs up my theory of pixies in the nacelles making the ship move with magic and happy thoughts.
Not worth anythng- five minutes with an old ERTL model could produce better.

That DS9 pylon is kinda intresting- does not look like they used that for anything onscreen though.

And as to the mug:

A prop ceramic mug and saucer believed to have been acquired for scenes of Star Trek VIII: First Contact.

And I believe it's a novelty from The star Trek Experience.
I defy anyone to get a screengrab of that mug in FC.
