Enterprise sells for 1/2 million dollars

David Pescovitz: A 78-inch-long model of the Starship Enterprise-D,
featured in the title sequence of Star Trek: The Next Generation and
used in other episodes, sold for $576,000 today at Christie's "40
Years of Star Trek" auction. The estimate on it was $25,000 - $35,000.
From the Associated Press:

Other top sellers on Saturday's action included a replica of Capt.
James T. Kirk's command chair from the bridge of the Enterprise-A on
the original "Star Trek" series.

The painted wood chair was only a re-creation for a 1996 episode of
"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" that mixed action from that newer series
with old footage, but it still sold for $62,400.
