Original Star Trek costumes to feature in police seizure auction

A collection of science fiction memorabilia, including a set of costumes from the original series of Star Trek, is due to go under the hammer at Wilsons Auctions in Northern Ireland this evening.

Star Trek original
The sale will include six costumes from the original series of Star Trek

The lots are being consigned by the police after they were seized from a couple convicted of fraud in 2012.

Aidan Larkin, assets recovery manager at Wilsons, commented:  "We have been informed when the costumes last changed hands in Christie's auctions in New York a few years ago, the couple in question spent $27,000 on these costumes."

"It's rare for such a large, significant collection of these items to become available.

"Normally, at the specialist toy auctions there are one or two items of a certain range - we have complete waves of toys that were produced."

Around 1,000 pieces of science fiction memorabilia will feature in the sale.

We have this piece of Krayt Dragon bone from Star Wars: A New Hope available.
