Spock's $7k jacket could prosper at auction

A collection of memorabilia from 2009's successful Star Trek movie will boldy go under the hammer

Just days after Hollywood Comedian Ben Stiller revealed that he is a collector of Star Trek memorabilia at this week's Academy Awards, auction house Julien's has unveiled some of the items appearing in its early-Summer Star Trek auction.

 Mr Spock's Parka jacket, estimated at $5k-7k

The sale will focus entirely on props and memorabilia from the JJ Abrams-directed film, released to considerable success last year.

Even though the memorabilia is all new, the auction will still offer collectors a chance to own a costume worn on the cinema screen by one of science fiction's most iconic characters.

The Spock "Prime" Parka,sported by actor Leonard Nimoy as his legendary character Mr Spock - or Ambassador Spock, as he is now known - will auction with an estimate of $5,000-7,500.

Nimoy's cameo appearance features the character marooned on the desolate planet Delta Vega.

Also featured in the sale are eight one-of-a-kind artist customised USS Enterprise models.

Built by Quantum Mechanix, the reproductions of Captain James T Kirk's famous spaceship have been painted by artists from around the world and will be sold for charity.
