Star Trek 'first ever' Apple Mac worth $1.2k

The first ever Apple Mac Plus computer, which was given to Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry by Apple in January, 1986, is to be sold at auction.

It is estimated to sell for between $800-$1,200.

This price would make it a unmissable on-of-a-kind item for collectors, although it is expected to sell for a lot more than the estimate.

The computer was a milestone in 20th century technology, but should also be of interest to Star Trek fans whose hero inspired its creation.

"This is the personification of life imitating art. Gene Roddenberry's vision inspired countless people to pursue careers in science and aerospace," said Joe Maddalena, president of the auction house selling the Mac.

"This milestone computer, given to Gene by Apple's innovators, is a symbol of this synergy."

The computer comes with its original keyboard and mouse, plus the original external floppy drive, and Apple logo carrying case.
