Ultimate Trek: Star Trek's Greatest Moments, Phaser 2 (TOS Style) - Non-functioning Hero

original movie prop weapon

Do you remember the 'Ultimate Trek' docu-parody starring Jason Alexander? It was produced in 1999 for television distribution by UPN in 2000 and stars Jason Alexander (of Seinfeld fame and a guest star on VOY). It is now only available on VHS. In this . . . silly project, Jason plays Kirk. There is also a Spock and McCoy. (Full details available on IMDB.com) The employees over at HMS Creative Studios were asked to make a landing party set (phaser, communicator, and tricorder) for each of the three principle actors. This was not terribly difficult since the same people had made the same props for the Star Trek:DS9 eoisode 'Trials and Tribble-ations'. Now, the three P2's that were made were form the same T&T DS9 molds but the detailing was a little different - black handles and velcro for wear (hero P2's with a mid-grade twist). The prop makers did not sell the props to the production but loaned them (smart, huh?) - except, when returned they had been wrapped directly in bubble wrap and mottled the paint on the P1's. Now, since the 1960's, there have only been 6 p2's commissioned by Paramount and used on screen - the three in T&T for DS9 and the 3 for Ultimate Trek. All 6 were made by the folks over at HMS. The P2's that were used in the Star Trek:Enterprise episode 'In A Mirror, Darkly', Part 2, were studio re-dressed Art Asylum phaser toys. This is not a 60's vintage phaser, but as close as I will likely get. Also, the story is that this is the best conditioned survivor of the bubble-wrap debacle.
