Hey folks, does anyone know what happened to the Epsilson 9 filming model from the first Star Trek movie?.Trying to do some research and can’t seem to find a lot of reference. Seem to remember that it was used as a wall decoration in a later Trek movie. Always loved the design and fascinated by the work of Ron Resch who designed that incredible space frame.

Both the six-foot master and panel detail models were used as set decoration in Star Trek III, but after that it seems they just disappeared, so they were likely either trashed in the mid 80s or are crated up in a studio warehouse somewhere uncatalogued.

 
Thomas, thanks for that. It would be a shame to think it was trashed. But on the other hand ,even though it’s out of the public’s eye, we know most of this stuff ends up in someone’s garage or a dusty warehouse somewhere. I do hope it resurfaces. I remember part of the Vger model (the back section) turned up at a auction a few years ago. It was being used as a wall light decoration.

I thought I read it was reused (modified, probably) for the station that gets destroyed by the Nexus early in Generations.

Well, it wasn’t sold in Paramount’s Giant Christie’s liquidation auction, back in 2006.
