    As per TrekMovie, CBS had a prop exhibit at the annual Licensing Expo in Las Vegas this week.

    Of interest, a TNG-style desktop monitor with a static graphic featuring a ship list, including previously unknown ships.

    According to Ex Astris Scientia who have an article about this type of monitors, the only possible use of this particular prop would be in Generations, albeit the front side of the prop is never clearly seen.

    Alternatively, this could be a replica or a prop purpose-made for exhibitions.

    Does anyone know whether this prop was seen onscreen, or not?

    Wow, new ship's names after twenty-plus years... The starships USS Don Quixote, Pillsbury, High Seas, Cantebury Belle, and Sol?

    Yes, I'm wondering how authentic the prop is though, I don't know if it's been used in actual production.

    By the way, the USS Sol is a Franz Josef ship.

    Quality of the prop is quite poor, I wouldn't bet on it being screen.used. And even if it was, the display graphic doesn't look authentic with those colors. I bet real money that this wasn't done by anyone from the Trek art department. Maybe a prop from the Las Vegas Exhibition or any other licensed event?
