As in… I’d like to charge my purchase of an official Klingon forehead prosthetic:
CBS Paramount Television Studios is cleaning out its vaults for the sale, comprising more than 1,000 lots totalling some 4,000 items, to be held from October 5 to 7 in conjunction with the 40th anniversary of the original “Star Trek” series, Christie’s announced on Thursday.
Fans and collectors will have a chance to acquire “Star Trek” artefacts ranging from models of the “Starship” USS Enterprise to Capt. James Kirk’s uniform or Capt. Jean-Luc Picard’s jump-suit in an auction where Christie’s expects to raise more than $3 million (1.6 million pounds).
Other items to hit the block include props, weapons, prosthetics and set dressings unearthed from five Paramount warehouses.
This is sure to have have the Trek fans wetting their Captain Picard underoos, but it does nothing for me. Now, if they were to have a Doctor Who auction I’d have to sell a kidney or two.
