The definitive source for information on collecting screen-used Star Trek props and costumes

Star Trek The Internet's premier source for information on collecting Star Trek props and costumes, as well as coverage of all major Star Trek auctions from the famous 2006 Christie's Star Trek auction, through the It's A Wrap Star Trek auctions on eBay and the Propworx Star Trek auctions. Star Trek Props is the best source for information of collecting original, screen-used props & costumes.

Nimbus III Rifle

The Golden Closet has a Star Trek V Nimbus III Rifle up on their site.  We don't see these very often, but they are around.

The Golden Closet contacted me about promoting it, which I am happy to do, but I did tell them I thought it was priced high.  They were very nice when I told them this and say they will talk to the consignor.

Now I think this is a $ 1,200 prop.  Why?  Well...

1)  The prop isn't rare, we have seen them before.

2)  It was not used by a principle character

3)  It's just not very attractive.  It isn't a "cool" prop like a Phaser or disruptor.

That being said, some people (like Aaron Carlson!) love Star Trek V and so this would be a cool addition to their Star Trek V collection.
