It says Cargo Service and Space Systems. Don't know what it is from though. I'm just guessing it's from the cargo-ship episode with Travis' family??

Half of me is mortified that they're selling all these models(I'm not so bothered about boring things like the chair that crewman #6 sat on in "Spock's Brain"), the other half of me wishes they were selling more, such as the Wolf 359 ships, or more of the DS9 kitbashes. For many of these models these small pictures are the clearest shots we've ever seen of them.

The Drayan Shuttle was barely more than a blur in the episode, but here we get a nice crisp photo of it. And who knows, more photos might come from the auction itself in NY next month. I don't know much about how auctions work, but presumably they have each item on display as they go under the hammer so people can see clearly what they're buying?

The London display was a single room, and the pictures I took show pretty much everything that was interesting in there. Hopefully the NY display will offer more. And hopefully a Trek fan with a camera will be around to take pics.

They just rearanged the parts and added a different central section for Mrs.Caretaker's station. $2000 gets you all the bits, so you can mix and match.

I was surprised by that as well. I think we already knew they had more than one, but not three. And the Pakled ship is a seperate lot. I always thought that had been converted to become one of the Bajoran transports, but it looks unchanged from its Palked appearence in the photo.

They're selling the E-A.... F**K

It's official; Paramount has no sense of history. That model is without a doubt the finest example of modelmaking ever created. You could bring the camera an inch from the surface and it looked good.

Please, whoever buys it, cherish her. Hell, wait until the 50th Anniversary and sell it back to Paramount for 100 grand... that appears to be the way the accountants who run the studio operate. Myopic little shits.

No lie, people - I'm actually upset. My favorite starship.

I'm sad that all the "hero" ships are being sold.
Like stated earlier, they should be in a museum. Maybe in the Smithsonian along with the TOS Enterprise. I'm really disappointed that DS9 and the Ent-A will be sold, they were some beautifully detailed models. Wish we could chip in and by one, at least.

It's just a disgrace!

How can they sell the actual filming models? It's not like they need storage space is it?

Or is it just intended as a big f**k-you to all the average fans - and by average I mean all of us who can't afford to "rescue" say the E-A by buying it for the 20-odd grand?

Uh, the three triangle ships are completely separate designs, not variants of a common hull. There's no way Paramount could have filmed all three using just one model.

The "black" one is the good old "Ensign Ro" vessel (which used to be Kivas Fajo's ship and the Husnock vessel at earlier points of her career), while the "brown" one is a custom design for DS9 and first appears in "Past Prologue" AFAIK. The Pakled one has always stayed the same, save for paint jobs or being filmed upside down - in DS9, she was a Rigelian vessel in "Vortex".

(Why does the third link go to Horgah'n statues? Was there some third model that got its lot number changed or what?)

I quoted the wrong link in Mirror Amisov's post, is all.

They're not selling these to spite fans. That's just silly. They're selling them to get money.

I'm in the process of archiving all the pics so we'll still have a record of them after the auction is over. Obviously the ship pics will be put on loads of sites anyway, but it's important to keep even the pics of the less interesting objects.

Maybe one of us should contact them, say he's interested in acquiring some of those models but likes to have some better, higher-res photos first. For possibly throwing ten-thousands of dollars at them you can expect a little service, can't you? [Wink]

Whomever is closest to New York... they better take a lot of photos. I missed the exhibit here in Los Angeles already thanks to work. Fukcers!

Problem is, it's been free to get into the auction houses, but from what I read on the christie's website, it'll cost $25 to get into the NY viewing. And that's if you don't buy the catalogue, which is an absurd price(50 here in the UK). I wonder if anyone will go to that expense. Bloody well hope so. [Wink]

I would, but my long weekend ends the day before the auction starts. [Frown]

I think I may have missed out on an opportunity. I looked at the site, then asked my wife if I could have a thousand dollars. Later, when I was shutting my PC down just before we went to bed, she said she wanted to have a look at the website. Who knows, maybe I could have persuaded her to fund my acquisition of a phaser rifle. . .
