Christie's Auction House gets Star Trek Props

CowboyNeal posted about 8 years ago | from the bidding-at-warp-eight dept.

circletimessquare writes "A New York Times reporter was granted access to the trove of 40 years of Star Trek props that Christie's, the auction house, is cataloguing for auction in October. 'The stuff of "Star Trek' — uniforms, communicators and other props, including pointy rubber ears — has boldly gone to a place where the intrepid crew never took the Enterprise: the Bronx.' For an opening bid of $1,000 to $1,500, you can own an original tribble. 'It's an Auction, Jim, but Not as We Know It.'"

to buy an original tribble

Actually, having read TFA, it's not, but from one of the sequel series. Despite the impression they try to give, there are hardly any props from TOS. These were all thrown out, stolen, or sold decades ago. They highlight a model of the Enterprise -- but made from a kit for one of the movies. Except for its provenance, the same as thousands hanging from geeks' bedroom ceilings.

Re:as the guy who wrote those words (1)

Xtifr (1323) | about 8 years ago | (#15673942)

Yup, the original tribbles were scattered up and down the west coast, and probably further. And if any survived, they're probably impossible to authenticate today. They were cheaply made and all-too-easy to copy. I had a real one when I was a kid--got it from David Gerrold, the author of the episode. He had a bunch of 'em. A couple of years later, you could buy cheap copies at any SF convention. Which, to a twelve-year-old, were just about as good. And my real one is long since gone (as are my fakes). Not that I could have ever proved the real one was real, even if I'd know how much it would eventually be worth. Back then, none of us had any idea what sort of phenomenon Trek was going to turn into. We just knew what we liked! :)

Watching a documentary like Trekkies [amazon.com] , one gets the impression that much extreme Trek fandom is pathological. I don't know what happened in these people's lives that they have to escape to a fantasy world based on a television series, but they need help. I feel especially sorry for the loved ones of people who spent all their time and money amassing Trek stuff and acting things out while neglecting those around them.

Sure, there are always better ways to spend money than having memorabilia and a piece of history in your house, but if you (or better I :) have disposable income to spend on trivial kinds of stuff like this, its really cool. There are people that have original copies of the Declaration of Independence, Mozart scores, all kinds of stuff that, well, you can't buy at Wal-mart, and frankly few people have one/few of a kind of thing(s) in their posession. Its actually quite cool. In fact, soon after recently watching Saturday Night Fever again, some friends and I were discussing about how cool it would be to have the original dance floor in my house. Well, not soon after that it went up for auction [bbc.co.uk] . I still wish I had it, but didn't have the cash then or now.

Re:Keep it real Christie's (-1, Flamebait)

Anonymous Coward | about 8 years ago | (#15673180)

This has very little to do with the article, but the L.A. Times recently published an article regarding the Toronto Sex Crimes Unit [torontopolice.on.ca] that focused on their fight against child pornography ("Sifting Clues to an Unsmiling Girl" [pqarchiver.com] ). They are the law enforcement organization that photoshopped the victims out of child porn photos in order to get the public's assistance in identifying the backgrounds (it worked). In any case, the article had this amazing claim:

On one wall is a "Star Trek" poster with investigators' faces substituted for the Starship Enterprise crew. But even that alludes to a dark fact of their work: All but one of the offenders they have arrested in the last four years was a hard-core Trekkie.

Wow. All but one in four years. Seemed rather unlikely to me.

So, I called the Child Exploitation Section of the Toronto Sex Crimes Unit and spoke to Det. Ian Lamond, who was familiar with the Times article. He claims they were misquoted, or if that figure was given it was done so jokingly. Of course, even if the figure was given jokingly, shouldn't the Times reporter have clarified something that seems rather odd? Shouldn't her editors have questioned her sources?

Nevertheless, Det. Lamond does confirm that a majority of those arrested show "at least a passing interest in Star Trek, if not a strong interest." They've arrested well over one hundred people over the past four years and they can gauge this interest in Star Trek by the arrestees' "paraphenalia, books, videotapes and DVDs."

Det. Constable Warren Bulmer slips on a Klingon sash and shield they confiscated in a recent raid. "It has something to do with a fantasy world where mutants and monsters have power and where the usual rules don't apply," Bulmer reflects. "But beyond that, I can't really explain it."

I asked Det. Lamond if this wasn't simply a general interest in science fiction and fantasy, such as Star Wars or Harry Potter or similar. Paraphrasing his answer, he said, while there was sometimes other science fiction and fantasy paraphenalia, Star Trek was the most consistent and when he referred to a majority of the arrestees being Star Trek fans, it was Star Trek-specific.

Re:Keep it real Christie's (2, Funny)

G-funk (22712) | about 8 years ago | (#15674096)

Of course. Only a fairly serious nerd would (apparently wrongly) trust in his ability to use his PC for child porn without going to FPMITA prison. And nerds, as a whole, tend to like star trek. Ergo, those with an amount of child porn worth arresting, like star trek.

Slashdot could save us all that effort by 1) having the editors change reg-links with non-reg links or better: 2) simply rejecting reg-linked stories and indicating to people that is the policy.

Yeah, pretty disturbing... Sounds like Ms. Elkes could be a liability to her company if that was an official trip she was on. I'd say sad rather than funny. Tell Ms. Elkes the little books with the pretty pictures in the airport shops for ten dollars are called "phrasebooks" and she ought to buy the "German" one next time she's in Germany. Learning a few words on the plane ride over might win her more friends. Maybe she got stressed because she couldn't find the Klingon one...

Though, her confusion is understandable. I'm not sure if either language has a word for sorry. At least I don't know if Klingon has such a word. German doesn't, Germans have to use the English word pronounced in a germanic way on the rare occasions that they feel an apology is absolutely necessary and unavoidable. Otherwise the German words in place of sorry seem to be "Vorsicht!" or "Tut!".

My guess is that Klingon is equally as friendly...

Nonetheless, there are one or two items I am particularly interested in that are not mentioned. Specifically, the 6 foot and 4 foot long detailed models of the 1701-D built by I.L.M and Greg Jein respectively. Those are the two used in all the close-up, opening sequence and stock shots from ST:TNG. I would also like to see the 1701-D's warp core, if it still exists.

Classic typo from the linked page:

The Phase Pistol used in Enterprise was laser scanned from the original. The resulting replica pieces (made by art asylum) were so well made, the producers for Enterprise decided to use the AA Phase Pistols as props. They were refinished, with quality paints, for filming and effectively, these Phase Pistols became the real props, and as such they are cannon.


So if they laser canned a phaser rifle, would the result be a naval gun emplacement?
