I’m wondering if we know anything about the case the “FAAAAKE!” optolythic data rod was stored in during the episode “In the Pale Moonlight.” I have a replica of the rod and think recreating the case would be a cool way to display it. It doesn’t appear to be a difficult build but I’m hoping to find some higher resolution images, dimensions, really any info at all to help make it screen accurate. I haven’t seen the prop come up for auction but could’ve missed it. Any help would be appreciated!
Here are some screenshots:
The best look we get:
This one, with the case in the Romulan’s hand, might help in determining dimensions:
Finally, he’s a look at the interior of the case. There appear to be copper “bookends” on each side of the foam(?) cutout for the rod.
The screenshots provide enough info to build a decent replica, but as this forum prides itself on screen accuracy (as do I), I felt it would be the best place to reach out for some crowd-sourced info.
