Authentic James T. Kirk Captain's Chair

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.
