Star Trek shuttlecraft sold at auction.

Jun 29, 2012

A shuttlecraft that was used in the original "Star Trek" TV series in the late 1960s and acquired by an Ohio collector sold at auction Thursday for just over 70-thousand dollars after a last-minute bidding war. An Akron-area collector had the partially restore Galileo shuttlecraft for several years
before putting it up for auction online. Auctioneer Brooks Ames says the selling price rose as three late bidders fought to claim the shuttlecraft.  Ames believes the buyer plans to restore it and possibly display it in a museum.
