    Jan 7, 2017, 3:54 PM - Gene L ****,s Personal Scripts - Star Trek TOS Arena. #1

    I posted a happy 50th to Star Trek on my facebook wall and I got a message from a facebook friend with the last name of ****. Turns out she is Gene L Coons niece. She and I get to talking and she tells me about her days on set watching the original cast film TOS. Of course I ask her if she has anything from those days and she says, "why yes I do. I have some of his scripts". A few months of discussion and she agrees to sell them to me and provided a letter of authenticity showing a family lineage.

    It it gives me chills knowing I have something in my possession that Gene **** and Gene Roddenberry owned.
    Here is a pic with parts cut out for protection. The Arena, Questor and Shiloh.

    Indeed he was Apollo. Very interesting stories from his Niece about the "other Gene" of Star Trek. She told me that he would keep alien heads from set in his closet that he kept to scare the kids. I begged her to ask the family if anyone has them.
