Star Trek Original Series Captain's Chair Replica


Star Trek Original Series Captain's Chair Replica

Star Trek Original Series Captain's Chair Replica

:
  • You have the conn of the USS Enterprise.
  • Captain James Tiberius Kirk's command chair!
  • Full-size reproduction from the Star Trek: The Original Series TV show.
  • Built by Steve Horch of HMS Creative Productions for Roddenberry.
  • Handcrafted to the exact standards of the original!
  • Made in the USA.
Here's your chance to own the most iconic and well-known piece of furniture in television history! This authentic recreation of Captain Kirk's command chair will turn any room of your home or office into the bridge of the USS Enterprise. Just sitting in this handcrafted and set-accurate replica will make you want to give an order to fire phasers or raise shields. It's sure to be the most talked about piece of furniture in your home or office for many years to come!

Back in the 1960s, the command chair was constructed by placing plywood around an obscure piece of Dutch office furniture and then adding wiring, lights, and switches. While the builders of the original set piece are no longer with us, that original command chair was found in the early 1990s and used as reference to construct an exact replica to be used for the sixth season Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Relics" for a holodeck recreation of the bridge of the original Enterprise. It would again appear nearly 15 years later in a mirror universe episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Now, the same builder of this command chair replica for Star Trek, Steve Horch, recreates it once again for you. Based on countless photographic references of the original set piece, Steve and his company, HMS Creative Productions, builds a command chair virtually identical in appearance to what was seen on the original Star Trek. The chair measures approximately 40-inches tall x 38-inches wide x 40-inches long. The base measures about 35-inches wide x 42-inches long. Additional space will be needed for the swiveling chair to move freely. The chair assembly itself is 38-inches wide, but its corners may stick out beyond the base when it's being rotated. Authentic reproductions of all the switches and lights, plus the communications speaker, add intricate detail. This chair is comprised of hard woods and a formica finish. The chair features one included sound-- the hailing frequency or "Swain" sound. All the lights are high-brightness LEDs to aid in the reduction of the amount of heat that an original 1960s incandescent lighting system would produce, and all the indicators are colored transparent plastic castings based on the shapes seen as part of the original chair. All electronics are wired to an AC adaptor with a power cord coming out of the chair platform base for plugging into any 110V outlet.

If you're sitting in the chair, the buttons on the left-hand side activate LEDs which light up the translucent fixtures within the controls. The eight switches all move and operate a single circuit that can be controlled by any of the switches.

On the right-hand side, each white plunge button activates independent LEDs that light up the translucent "gum drop" fixtures separately. The last white button in the row will activate the intercom, where the familiar "swain sound" sound effect can be heard (loudly). There is also a white LED feature within the intercom speaker that lights up upon activation. The red Data Card is removable and comes with two replacement orange and yellow cards. Finally, the chair has a "spring-back" function where if you rotate the chair from right to left, it will slowly return to its centered position.

The center seat is made using plywood, with solid laminated walnut arms crafted as the originals were. The only difference from the original is Steve's decision to laminate a Formica sheet in the correct color to finish the surface, rather than painting it as the original was finished, since the Formica will not wear as much when one is using the chair. In other words, your command chair will be more scuff-resistant than Captain Kirk's!

The finished product is built to be sturdy and hold up to 250-300 pounds. It's a quality piece of furniture that if kept indoors, will last for a very long time. Each chair is meticulously crafted by hand, requiring 6 to 8 weeks of total labor. The finished piece is truly stunning and sure to be the most talked about piece of furniture in your home or office for many years to come. This chair is made by the same prop studio that created them for the Smithsonian, as well as Star Trek: The Experience and Star Trek: The Tour. It's a true 1:1 scale replica!

Please allow 6-8 weeks for production and delivery.
