Star Trek: TNG "All Good Things" Refit Model Miniature In Propworx May 2015 Auction

Presented below are some detailed photos of a set of filming miniature model pieces that were used to create the third Nacelle and additional components on the refit U.S.S. Enterprise-D starship seen in the Star Trek: TNG series finale episode "All Good Things" (first airdate: May 23, 1994), which are now offered as Lot 1 in the upcoming May 30th, 2015 Propworx Star Trek Auction V on LiveAuctioneers. 

The main item in this thirteen component set is the large third Nacelle section which measures approximately 21" x 10" x 4.5" in size and was centrally mounted atop the Secondary/Engineering Hull of the 6 foot Galaxy Class filming miniature.  It is made of resin that has been reinforced with fiberglass, features its original blue paint scheme with a sophisticated Aztec detailing pattern, and possesses an internal metal armature with attached halogen bulbs throughout to provide self illumination.   All pieces in this Lot remain in fine, screen used condition and come directly from the collection of Star Trek VFX Supervisor Gary Hutzel.
