1994 Star Trek VII: Generations Original Movie Prop - U.S.S. Enterprise-D Commissioning Plaque
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $1,185
Original U.S.S. Enterprise-D commissioning plaque used in the 1994 film Star Trek VII: Generations. This piece comes with the special provenance of having once resided in the fabled Drier Collection, where it sat alongside numerous iconic pieces of Hollywood history. The plaque appeared as Lot 217 in Profiles in History's July 28, 2012, sale of the Drier Collection (Part 1), where it realized a final sale price of $5,842. It has been consigned directly by the original purchaser. The plaque is accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from William K. Dolan, a Paramount Pictures employee who worked on many of the Star Trek films. In part: "To Whom It May Concern: I have been employed in the motion picture industry for many years. I was employed at Paramount Pictures for many of those years and worked on five of the Star Trek feature motions pictures. I was in the Art Department as Set Decoration Lead Person. I was directly involved during the making of these Star Trek motion pictures. The following item originated from me and is the real and actual prop used in the production." According the original auction description, this plaque was made by the Franklin Mint and features a sterling silver Starfleet insignia at the top of the plaque. The description further added that plaque was attached to the bulkhead of the bridge set by means of the Velcro strips on the reverse and that it was removed nightly because such items had a tendency to "disappear" if left unattended on the set. The plaque is mounted in a wooden frame and measures 13.5 x 11 inches. Near Mint condition.
