`Star Trek` memorabilia up for sale
New York: Sci-fi fans can now lay their hands upon Gene Roddenberry`s `Star Trek` memorabilia.
The items will be up for grabs in June.
The Las Vegas auction would feature numerous items that were once used by Roddenberry, the creator of Star Trek.
"My father would be proud that his memorabilia will not only be enjoyed and cherished by Star Trek fans, but that the proceeds will benefit society on a larger scale," the New York Daily News quoted Roddenberry’s son, Rod Roddenberry, as saying.
Among the articles going under the hammer are costumes worn by actress Majel Barrett Roddenberry during Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, a Peabody award for The Big Good-bye, an episode from The Next Generation, as well as a script with notes scribbled on it by Roddenberry.
The dresses are expected to sell for 800 to 1,200 dollars, while the script may fetch more than 2,000dollars.
Other items include a model of the U.S.S. Enterprise-D that was once housed in Roddenberry``s office, one of his IBM computers, and an oak desk.
