NEW YORK -- Christie's, the final frontier. These are the memorabilia of the "Star Trek" television shows and movies. Their mission -- to fetch the highest prices they can at auction.
Marking the 40th anniversary of the TV series, Christie's will be auctioning off more than 1,000 lots of material taken from the archives of CBS Paramount Television, the auction house announced Thursday.
The items, including costumes, props, model ships and weapons, come from all the "Star Trek" television series and films, Christie's said, adding that the auction is the first to be done officially by CBS Paramount.
Among the memorabilia will be a Starfleet uniform worn by William Shatner's Capt. James T. Kirk in "Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan" with a pre-sale estimate of $7,000 to $9,000, and a Starfleet jumpsuit worn by Patrick Stewart's Capt. Jean-Luc Picard estimated at $8,000 to $12,000.
The auction will be Oct. 5-7 in New York. The collection will be touring around the U.S. and Europe before then.
