This authentic spacesuit was featured prominently in Star Trek I: The Motion Picture when “Spock” (Leonard Nimoy) left the “Enterprise” to conduct a mindmeld with the ‘V'Ger Probe’. Made from brown, orange, and white materials with insets of plastic and metal accents, this costume features an astonishing array of ribbed details at the knees, elbows, and around the chest and waist. Due to time and storage conditions the costume features a degree of wear as some of the orange of the exterior has bled into the white of the interior and internal padding has collected at the ankles and cuffs, yet the costume retains its overall intact appearance. The costume comes complete with a pair of gloves, a collar that Velcro’s into place around the neck and on the shoulders, and a pair of spats that clasp onto the legs of the jumpsuit. The costume also features a molded chest frame for a helmet; the frame features internal foam padding with multiple cutouts, a buckle and belt and lace holes on the side to keep it together; screw holes and screws are evident and both the back and the front feature multi-color painted accents and details. The helmet maintains it’s large fishbowl like faceplate and has internal padding, mounts for attachment to the frame, and an approximate 8.5 X 1.75 inch rectangular hole cut into the upper right hemisphere of the item for an undisclosed reason revealing internal foam. The interior of the gloves are inscribed ‘L. Nimoy’, the chest frame reads ‘Spock’ with a section of the foam missing, and the costume jumpsuit reads ‘Nimoy’ at the upper back. This incredible, once in a lifetime costume is an exceptional artifact from 1979 and its condition is excellent given the materials available at the time. The workmanship still holds up and the style it simply something of an era that would be difficult to duplicate.

Notes from someone


An interesting bit about this costume at the The Star Trek Prop, Costume & Auction Blog: "they had to cut a hole on top of the helmet to be able to drag/manipulate the worm going across the face."
