For Immediate Release:
Los Angeles, California (For Immediate Release) — In the summer of 2010 at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada you can own a piece of movie history as props and costumes from the Paramount Pictures Motion Picture Star Trek (released May 8, 2009) hit the auction block with Julien's Auctions (juliensauctions.com). The J.J. Abrams directed blockbuster exploded onto the screen to rave reviews and box office success and next summer you can bring home a piece of the adventure.
The Julien's Auctions Summer Sale of entertainment memorabilia, planned for early Summer 2010, will contain 25 props, costumes and set pieces from Star Trek. These items are being auctioned to benefit Children's Defense Fund (childrensdefense.org) and Student Veterans of America (studentveterans.org).
Highlights of the iconic costumes available from Star Trek include wardrobe worn by franchise legend Leonard Nimoy during his pivotal meeting with the young James T. Kirk, Starfleet cadet costumes as worn by Zoe Saldana and Chris Pine, and the insignia badges needed to complete a Star Fleet Uniform ensemble.
True Star Trek Fans can also own the equipment needed to survive in the final frontier. Seat yourself aboard the bridge of the U.S.S. Kelvin in uniform with your Hero Chair and try to avert future and past disasters. Outfit yourself for a fight in a rugged Romulan costume armed with the prop weaponry from Nero's mining ship The Narada. Whether it's a physician's Tricoder or your own phaser, these props will make you feel like you're a part of the action.
As a very special addition to the auction, eight one-of-a-kind artist rendered U.S.S. Enterprise models will also be available. Built by Quantum Mechanix and painted by artists from around the world, these custom-made collector dream items will also be sold to benefit these remarkable charities.

About Star Trek
The greatest adventure of all time begins with “Star Trek,” the incredible story of a young crew's maiden voyage onboard the most advanced starship ever created: the U.S.S. Enterprise. On a journey filled with action, comedy and cosmic peril, the new recruits must find a way to stop an evil being whose mission of vengeance threatens all of mankind.
The fate of the galaxy rests in the hands of bitter rivals. One, James T. Kirk (Chris Pine), is a delinquent, thrill-seeking Iowa farm boy. The other, Spock (Zachary Quinto), was raised in a logic-based society that rejects all emotion. As fiery instinct clashes with calm reason, their unlikely but powerful partnership is the only thing capable of leading their crew through unimaginable danger, boldly going where no one has gone before!
