Favourite picks from Prop Store's live auction of Star Trek movie costumes and props...

On December 2 our friends at Prop Store will be joining with Paramount Pictures to auction off original costumes, props and memorabilia from the rebooted Star Trek movie universe. In 2009 J.J. Abrams breathed new life into the long-running and beloved sci-fi franchise and now it's your chance to own screen-used items from Star Trek and 2013's Star Trek: Into Darkness. Here's a selection of some cool picks from the upcoming live-auction that caught my collector's eye.

Iowa police uniform from Star Trek

Star Trek Iowa police badge
Star Trek Iowa cop boots
Star Trek Iowa police uniform back
Michael Kaplan was Costume Designer on the rebooted movies and I don't know why, but there's something about this futuristic Iowa State police uniform used by the cop who chases a young 'Kirk' at the start of the 2009 movie that makes me smile.

This cool law enforcement costume has an estimated sale price of $1,000 to $1,500.

Mr. Spock's Enterprise Sciences uniform
from Star Trek: Into Darkness
Mr Spock Starfleet uniform Star Trek Into Darkness
Star Trek Into Darkness Spock Starfleet insignia
Star Trek Into Darkness phaser prop
Star Trek Into Darkness Starfleet communicator prop
Spock Starfleet costume back Star Trek Into Darkness
Michael Kaplan was Costume Designer on both movies and I love how he integrated the Starfleet insignia pattern into the very fabric of the Starfleet costumes, like with this blue Enterprise Science Officer uniform worn by 'Mr. Spock'.

This costume from Star Trek: Into Darkness stunt costume for Spock comes with phaser, belt and communicator and is estimated to sell for between $8,000 to $12,000

Alien Nibiran costumes from Star Trek: Into Darkness

I also loved how the rebooted films and cast explored new, never-before-seen worlds and alien races, like the primitive Nibiran species featured at the start of Star Trek: Into Darkness.

I always thought this alien look was created with body makeup, but as you can see they're actually costumes. In this auction there are several different examples of these, expected to sell at auction for between $600 to $800 and some come with accessories like spears and wrist-mounted dart guns.

Klingon guard uniform from Star Trek: Into Darkness

And speaking of alien races and it wouldn't be Star Trek without fan-favourites the Klingons, although the warrior race and their wardrobe was totally reimagined for these rebooted films.

This Kronos Klingon guard uniform from Star Trek: Into Darknesss comes with a disruptor rifle, helmet, gloves and boots and is expected to go for $5,000 to $7,000.

Light-up Starfleet Phaser prop from Star Trek: Into Darkness

And speaking of iconic elements of any Star Trek universe and phasers are an essential part of Starfleet equipment.

This little high-tech gem from Star Trek: Into Darkness actually has LED panels that light up and could set you back around $3,000 to $5,000 if you're interested. Set phasers to stunning.

If you have someone special in your life who's a fan of Star Trek, just imagine how excited they'd be if they received an authentic piece of movie history from their favourite franchise this gift-giving season.

The Star Trek live auction is the first to be hosted at Prop Store's new facility in Valencia, L.A. County and will take place on stardate Saturday, December 2, 2017 at 11am and you can visit the Prop Store website to peruse the auction items and register to bid online.

What will you beam up this holiday season?
