Okay, I know we’ve all seen Star Trek themed home theatre setups before. In fact, we’ve already seen a couple right here. But this one’s different for one very crucial reason–read on.
This replica of the NCC-1701 (original Enterprise for all of you what don’t habla Trekkie) bridge comes with a panoply of speakers and projector and similar hardware, but that’s not what makes this so downright unbelievable.
This replica is laden with ACTUAL STAR TREK PROPS. You see that chair in the middle? Big chair, all by its lonesome? That, if I understand correctly, is the ACTUAL captain’s chair from Star Trek: Enterprise. As in “Scott Bakula’s ass rode that chair for like two, three seasons”. Here’s some more contents from Gary Sekulow’s vast array, some of which you can spot in that pic.
- Several “Star Trek” backlit graphic panels from “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “Star Trek: Voyager”.
- The Ops and Conn consoles from the bridge of Enterprise E from the last three movies (“First Contact,” “Insurrection” and “Nemesis”).
- A computer display panel from the Operation Center from “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”
- Wall panels from “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” which were actually built for the last episode of “Enterprise.”
At this point you can be watching cave drawings with a torch for foreground lighting and it’d still be a sweet home theatre setup by simple virtue of the sheer amount of actual, authentic Trek hardware it’s made up of. It’s downright mindboggling, and in its way, beautiful.
