    Star Trek Generations Isolinear Chip Collection

    [​IMG]


    I am very excited to offer a unique collection of rarely seen Isolinear Optical Chips as seen in the feature film Star Trek Generations. The set includes 6 Isolinear Chips (2 unique designs in each of 3 colors) and display rack, all of which were recreated to be as authentic as possible to the screen used designs. Each Isolinear Chip is made from a piece of 1/8” thick laser cut acrylic with copper and gold silkscreened detailing on either side. The display base is a beautiful prop replica itself, and features laser etched ship registry detailing. (Display base is available for the first 15 sets) Also included with each set is a special individually numbered COA Isolinear Chip. Each set is $156.24 (+$6 S&H). Please e-mail me if interested at KertRatz@gmail.com.


    Thanks
    KertRatz

    ***9/4: Did a small run of more stands. Will not be doing more, but for now there are more complete sets available.

    I will contact you to discuss your particular order. In general I cannot always honor such requests. It was important for me to be able to offer the highest quality props at a reasonable cost, and also to be able to ship them out immediately so people don't have to wait. As such, all sets have been prepackaged.

    Another member and a mod on here made me aware that I had overlooked one of the sale rules here on the RPF:

    In my original thread I had the price set at $150 (+$6 S&H) and asked people to send as a gift (or add 4% to cover fees). Since I am not permitted to ask for that on here I have edited my first post to reflect a new price of $156.24. Just wanted to explain the change in price for those of you who may check back and wonder why things changed.


    In other news.... ALL PAID ORDERS HAVE SHIPPED!

    In addition to being able to offer the highest quality props at a reasonable price, it was important for me to be able to turn these around quick so none is waiting.


    Thank you all for your excitement about this project!


    I only have 3 Display Stand Props left!!!

    I just ordered a set of these yesterday and they were shipped immediately. I wanted to get a set before the stands were gone. These are by far the best looking Iso chips I've seen offered.

    Down to the last 2 stands now....

    The display stand was a pain in the butt! Its actually a complex replica in itself, and cost-wise is way more than the chips! You would think that its pretty straightforward...take a block and cut some slots... Its true that the machining of the plastic is common and no big deal, but finding people who were even willing to do the secondary processes was a trick. I didnt realize that the polishing process to get the stands looking crystal clear is a fairly specialized secondary operation using open flames, and nobody wanted to (or really gave enough thought to figure out how to) laser etch the detailing on the front miter cut surface. Thats why I only have a limited number of the stands, at $45 each I didnt think there would be enough interest. Since everyone keeps raving about the stands though I may try to get some more, or possibly offer them separately.

    * Disclaimer - IF its do-able to pull off more stands, I wouldn't have them available until the first week of September anyhow. I am also going to go MIA for a few weeks for my wedding and honeymoon, which is what these are helping to fund (I hope).

    Thanks for all the support. I am currently out of display stands. Exploring the possibility of more, and open to input and feedback to see if its even warranted.

    I received my set yesterday. Jump in while you can! These are better in person than any pic can capture. The base is crystal clear and the graphics on the chips are crisp. Packaging and protection ensured they arrived in perfect condition.

    Thanks Aaron and have fun on the honeymoon!

    I got mine the other day but have yet to set them up. Work is killing me and that box with my name on it is screaming "Open me!"

    By the way, I want those Ten Forward chips. Will you take $10 for the set? :lol

    Ok so completely non-artistic and with absolutely no thought given to lighting, background, exposure and all that good stuff. Unpacked and plopped on my desk.

    Sweetness :D

    Be thankful I at least unwrapped them. If I wanted to be a real pain I could have displayed them still with the protective paper. :lol

    IM BACK! Good and married, had a total blast, and now I'm good and relaxed from the honeymoon too. Actually, thats a lie... I am struggling like hell to get back into "real" life.


    Thanks everyone for the support and great feedback on this project. Due to popular demand I have done another small run of stands, and have 10 more complete sets ready to go. I will not be doing more after this run. Please message me if interested. All sets will ship same day.

    Just a little bump!


    For those of you who might be interested and not yet pulled the trigger, I have 12 sets left, all with display stands! No more runs of the Generations chips, when they are gone they are gone.


    Thanks for all the support!

    Thank you. Down to the last few sets. This project started because I wanted these in my personal collection, but I am glad things worked out the way they did and that you guys are loving these!
