Previous Star Trek Movies

The large light-up padd of the Son'a from Star Trek Insurrection, manufactured by Jim Key

Another from Insurrection, this is the wrist tricorder used on the Federation stealth-suits from the beginning of the movie

Originally made for Star Trek Insurrection but not used, this got some screen time in the Voyager episode "Timeless" as the "15 years into the future" wrist flashlight, parts manufactured and modeled by Andrea Davis

The display of the original "Relics" bridge set from the Earth Tour exhibit

A rarely seen prop in The Original Series, this is a hand scanner used mostly for examination of non-humanoid beings such as Vulcans or other alien species. You see this used by Dr. M'Benga in "A Private Little War" on Spock, injured on a landing party mission and left to heal on his own in sickbay, who was then beaten back into conciousness by the doctor. This was also used by Spock on the streets of Manhattan in 1968 when he and Kirk were searching for Gary Seven in "Assignment: Earth" and may have been used in other episodes.

This scanner was machined by Steve Horch and Robert Mannion, and features a rotating color wheel and its own sound effects also created and installed by Steve Horch [Quicktime movie]

The communicator from STAR TREK II The Wrath of Khan, made by Steve Horch and the HMS staff. A [literally] large departure from communicators made before and after this movie, this is an all metal construction with nickel-plated metal parts and "push-to-talk" lights so no one can miss you using it when you're talking to the Enterprise. [Quicktime movie]

The communicator from STAR TREK III The Search for Spock, made by Steve Horch. A slimmed down version of the famous communicator from The Original Series, this prop also appeared with some modifications [the addition of a large light so it would light up the actor's face and the grill] in STAR TREK V The Final Frontier.

This communicator has working LEDs and sound effects, and was made using a polished brass midplate. [Quicktime movie]

Star Trek The Original Series Captain's Chair, made for a charity event at the Paramount Studios lot in June 2007. This chair was built in approx. 8 days and features an all-Formica gray laminate surface, thus avoiding the need to paint the chair. It also features solid walnut chair arms and light-up control panels


Another iconic prop from The Original Series made as a commissioned piece, this is the portable data tape card viewer seen in many episodes, most often used by Captain Kirk.

These were made by Robert Mannion using thin plywood, with a "leatherette" vinyl covering by Michael Moore for that vintage look as found on a lot of cameras and camera equipment from the 1960s. One of these was fitted with a sound circuit by Brian Makepeace to simulate the activation and running sounds this prop made on Star Trek.

The card viewer in action! [Quicktime movie]
