Vegas ‘Star Trek’ attraction’s contents auctioned

Here’s a bargain even a Ferengi would love:

A warehouse in Las Vegas today is playing host to an auction of roughly 1,000 items from Star Trek: The Experience, a Vegas attraction that closed in 2008. A reported deal to reopen it last year failed, apparently.

Items on the block include three large spaceship models in need of repair, the USS Enterprise-A, the USS Voyager (pictured, above-left) and a Klingon Bird of Prey, as well as a replica of the Enterprise-D bridge. You can also own your very own Borg alcove — for $800.
