248 896 STAR TREK: GENERATIONS PATRICK STEWART PROTOTYPE COSTUME A Captain Jean-Luc Picard duty uniform style costume designed for Patrick Stewart for use in Star Trek: Generations (Paramount, 1994), though this particular design ultimately was not used. This costume is similar to the duty uniform style of costume worn at the start of the seventh feature-length Star Trek film and the first starring the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation (Paramount Television, 1987-1994) following the end of that successful series run. With the film, the crew of the Enterprise transitions from wearing the familiar overall style of duty uniform seem in the television series to the style seen in use in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine series. At the start, at least some of the crew has the TNG television-era style, with black shoulders and color below designating their particular branch of service, Picard’s red indicating command and helm. By the end of the film, most of the crew is seen wearing the DS9 style of jumpsuit uniform that is all black, with the color designation on the shoulders. This prototype costume illustrates one possible direction in which production might have gone with a change for the big- screen outing. It appears to have gone fairly far into the process, as the costume tag inside the tunic reads “STAR TREK VII, PATRICK STEWART.” More, the officially licensed action figure produced by Playmates for the release of the film shows the Captain Picard action figure wearing this same style of costume. An interesting and rare look into the costume design process for this important chapter of Star Trek history, as the feature films transitioned from the TOS (The Original Series) cast to the TNG cast. $4,000-6,000 895 STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK INTERGALACTIC PASSPORT An original “Intergalactic Passport” used for granting visitors access to the sets and stages in England at Elstree Studios during the production of The Empire Strikes Back (Lucasfilm, 1980). Purportedly an idea from Producer Gary Kurtz, these were created as a fun souvenir for visitors to the set to have a piece of memorabilia to memorialize their visit to the film set. It is believed that about 450 were produced and about 200 numbered passports were used and given out during the production; the example here is not numbered and does not appear to have been used for the purpose of granting access, as there are no “passport stamps” in the pages. The versions that were used have a unique number on the front of the passport and actual stamps inside, based on which set or stage the individual was being granted access. The piece is made of thick covers with pages inside featuring iconography and location names from Star Wars lore. 6 by 4 inches $500-700
