From its humble beginnings on US television in the 1960s, Star Trek has spawned a veritable industry of film and TV output over the past six decades. After the original Star Trek TV series finished, it was followed up by a number of spin-off Television series, plus a total of 13 movies (to date). The Star Trek brand is alive and well in this, its landmark 50th anniversary year, as demonstrated by the popularity of the latest movie Star Trek Beyond, and the prospect of a new Star Trek TV series in 2017.

The following pages showcase a selection of fantastic Star Trek memorabilia which will be coming up for auction in September, ranging from a couple of vintage pieces from the original 1966 show, to pieces from three of the movies and the Voyager, Enterprise and Deep Space 9 TV series. Hopefully, there will be something to suit every taste!
