Re: star trek collector challange.

im a collector of rare odds and ends and I just want to know if what the seller says is true.Ive looked everywhere on the internet including every blueprint list and everywhere else I can think of and haven't found one shred of info.Ive seen that all blueprints ive seen are made of paper and this one seems to be like fibre glass or something with gold etching or something.

Re: star trek collector challange.

I don't know specifically what that is, but it appears to be a collection of views from David Kimble's Star Trek: The Motion Picture blueprints. I have the original packet of 14 sheets which are similarly credited to Kimble & Probert. Kimble also famously produced the cutaway poster of the refit 1701. The "Released" date of 7912.7 also corresponds to the movie release date of December 7th, 1979. (I know this because my birthday is December 7th!)

I don't know enough about collectibles to know if what the seller is claiming is true. It looks like the print was produced in 1992, not exactly a milestone year for Star Trek. 1991 would have been ST's 25th anniversary and also the year ST: VI came out, so the poster wouldn't have been produced to commemorate anything specifically.

Hope this helps, however little.

Those Look like the Chrome Art TMP Blueprints that use to be sold at conventions and speciality stores.

I have a set placarded but they sold other versions also

Re: star trek collector challange.

Thank you very much for your time and effort.I can't find any info on them at all so im assuming it could be a rare item.Im hoping for some more definitive info before I make a purchase.Any idea what its worth?People on this site don't seem to know much about it.Thats got to count for something id think,meaning it could be a rare item.Thanks

Captain Jeff - the reason you can't post an avatar is the same for why you can't post pictures. You need to have 100 posts before you can do either. It is a spam deterrent. Once you hit 100 posts,you should be good to go.

BTW, welcome aboard!
