What happened to the Defiant set?

Did they scrap it, or do you think they still have it at Paramount studios?

Re: What happened to the Defiant set?

I have no idea, but it's more than likely scrapped or sold - there was a big Trek clearout a while back...

Wasn't the helm/nav console on loan from the New Voyages/Phase II fan series?

Re: What happened to the Defiant set?

This german collector bought a huge amount of material in the big sale a few years back. He has a classic bridge set in his collection - unfortunately his website does not say where it's from.

Not really, because keeping sets in storage costs money and with no future shows or movies planned that would use those sets, there truly was no sense in paying to keep them. It's standard procedure when a TV series ends.

Usually sets are demolished immediately after production ends. That's not just for Trek, but for TV shows in general.

Re: What happened to the Defiant set?

It is wrong. Especially when you have a built in fanbase of collectors.

John Eaves seems to agree with you:

Re: What happened to the Defiant set?

I have a question. Why is this discussion taking place in the Enterprise forum?


The Defiant was on DS9.

Re: What happened to the Defiant set?

The set was struck and actually left OUTSIDE, exposed to the elements during a rainy winter. I didn't see the effects of the rain myself, but was told it was a sad sight.

I was given a copy of the blueprints by folks in the production; the blueprints are what really matter for recreating that particular incarnation of the TOS set.
