Yep, Leslie's final "fuck you" to his dear friend Rick Berman.
Yay, yet another person under the mistaken impression that Moonves hates Star Trek. He hates shows that are expensive to produce and only have a minimal viewing audience. If Star Trek was cheap to make and had the same audience that all those reality shows have, he'd green-light a new Trek show tomorrow.

It is wrong. Especially when you have a built in fanbase of collectors.
How is it wrong to get rid of a set from a cancelled show? Friends was a hugely popular show, and yet they didn't scavenge the sets to sell things to the fans.

"Paramount is planning something huge and keeping us out of the loop"

Which is exactly what happened. Ah, foreshadowing...

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.
Thank you for the confirmation, sir, regrettable though the details must be. The Defiant was marvelous to see again on Enterprise--such a beautifully detailed recreation.

We always enjoy you dropping by.

If you take a tour of the Warner Brothers Studio, they take you to the coffee shop set... it's been rebuilt just off the prop building. They take all the tours there... you can even take a picture of yourself sitting on the couch.

But it's not for sale, right?
