Want Picard’s chair? ‘Trek’ items for sale

April 11, 2010


— “Star Trek” lovers looking for Enterprise chairs, Starfleet uniforms or a model Klingon Bird of Prey can seek out new life for the dismantled pieces of a closed Las Vegas attraction based on the famous franchise.

Auctioneer Propworx Inc. plans to sell roughly 1,000 items large and small from Star Trek: The Experience at a warehouse sale Saturday in Las Vegas, CEO Alec Peters said.

The attraction, based on the beloved television series and movies, closed in 2008 after a 10-year run.

“Anything like this, you’re sad to see it go, but on the other hand it’s an opportunity for fans to preserve the stuff,” Peters said. “It’s an opportunity for the studio to get it in the hands of people who made it great.

“I think it is bittersweet — we try to make it fun,” Peters said.

Among the items for sale are three large models of spaceships in need of repair or restoration — the U.S.S. Enterprise A, the U.S.S. Voyager and the Bird of Prey — as well as a replica of the Enterprise bridge from “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”
