Do we know if any of the filming miniatures will be at either event in the “museum” exhibit?
I have been on a 2+ year quest to get some high-resolution images of the workbee filming miniature from ST:TMP (specifically the aft greblie details and underside).
I know the exhibition company www.sciencefictionarchives.com own the miniature (they won it at the 2006 Christie’s auction) but the company and owner do no permit tours of the collection nor are willing to display or sell images of the miniature (they think it will degrade the value of the model if others have precise information which might lead to building replicas).
Their company’s enterprise (pun noted) is renting out parts of their collection for events, so was speculating if they might be renting out any of the Star Trek pieces. They also own the USS Reliant miniature from TWOK. It was subsequently remarked as the USS Saratoga NCC-1887 for Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, USS Lantree NCC-1837 (Star Trek : The Next Generation “Unnatural Selection”), the USS Brattain (on the model misspelled as Brittain) (TNG “Night Terrors”), the USS Bozeman (Star Trek: Generations, Star Trek: First Contact), and the USS Saratoga NCC-31911 (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine “Emissary”). They also have various other costume pieces from Trek series and films.
I sent an email the other day to the event’s official website’s email address, but so far have not received a reply.
If the workbee miniature ends up being on display I would be hoping I could cajole or bribe someone in this group going to the event to take high-res photos if they get the chance.
