Some highlights of this very exciting event, which filled the large Pavillion 6 auditorium with spectators and bidders, were the sale of a Star Trek: The Original Series Monitor Graphic for an impressive $14,000 as well as the sale of a Klingon D-7 Battle Cruiser Special Effects model created during the production of Star Trek: TMP for a final bid of $10,000.
