I can have my own Gorn head? Sweet! A memorabilia company is auctioning off tons of Star Trek original props, scripts, costumes, etc. You can finally own Capt. Pike's chair (which my dentist also has, I think), memos that made jerk sci-fi authors very angry, the big seat itself and, of course, Frank Gorshin's pants.

Neat stuff, though a bit jarring when I got to the end and the listing concluded with Jimi Hendrix's army medical reports. Perhaps I'll combine those with a Dr. McCoy tunic...

What I really want is Captain Pike's beeping roller thingy.

This weekend some friends and I heard about this and we were wondering why it didn't go straight to the Smithsonian Institution. I guess everybody's out for a buck these days.

Do I detect a not-overly-subtle Harlan Ellison reference in your post, ice?

Does Harlan Ellison call people cocksucker?

Probably. Probably calls people a lot worse, too.

Probably, he called one of guys from the EFF a motherfucker in an open debate not so long ago.

Everytime I see something like this I wonder about the set designers and craftsmen who built this junk. "40 grand for that damn lucite chair, shit I should have kept it for myself!"

skallas: I'm guessing what you're referring to is this.

Sounds like an average day at Metafilter...

(sorry for the digression.)
