Klingon Costume (Prop Store)

The auction is being organised by film and TV memorabilia company Prop Store alongside Paramount Pictures with fans and collectors being given the opportunity to bid in person, online or via telephone.

Brandon Alinger, Prop Store COO, said: “We expect to see strong interest in all of the auction content, but especially items like the Enterprise costumes, Starfleet props, and Klingon-related lots — the majority of which have never been available to the public before.

“It’s a good time to be a Star Trek fan.”
