This is the meticulously detailed, full-scale replica of James Tiberius Kirk's captain's chair from the original Star Trek television series. The chair is constructed from the design conceived by Matt Jefferies, the set director and art designer from 1966 to 1969--only 1,701 are being produced. A press of the former yellow alert button (located at the front of the right armrest) produces one of nine original sound samples from the series, including the entirety of the famous prologue: "Space... the final frontier..." spoken by William Shatner. Other samples include "Kirk to Engineering... Mr. Scott, report!," "Position report Spock?" and more. Seven sound effects are produced by activating the former red alert button, including the classic intercom hail, phaser and photon torpedo sounds--even the ambient background bridge noises.

The chair includes various toggle switches, knobs, and buttons from the series that invoked the jettison of pods and activated the main viewscreen. All sounds are produced from a single speaker built into the left armrest. The chair's platform is made of wood surrounding a steel frame. The back and seat are made from leather, braced on either side by two oak arm rests; the chair swivels 360°. Plugs into AC. 41" H x 42" W x 39" D. (75 lbs.)

Yes, I want one. What a great TV chair it would make. Integrate the remote control with the toggles....nice!!

This does remind me of something. Back in 1965 I was in 7th grade at John F. Kennedy Jr. High School in Clearwater, FL. Ther was an art teacher who left the school during the middle of the year to pursue acting. A little while later we heard he was going to be on a Star Trek episode, and he was. He played "Adam" a Pan like character " - you know with the flute thing dancing around. Granted this is such a role reversal for what became a truly well known character actor- mostly know for playingmilitary officers - Charles Napier.

Thanks for bringing back those memories.

How Ironic . . . I just watched an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise last evening and part of the show was featured on the bridge of the original Enterprise (from the 60's) . . . and there was Capt. James Tiberius Kirk's chair! :lol

I'm in S. Texas... It'd be a big upgrade to the recliner my across the street neighbor put out on the street... (hey, I was trying to assemble a watch collection in a difficult economy)

At least I waited 'til dark to go get it. I don't think anybody saw me.
