To ensure the utmost accuracy, Factory Entertainment's Star Trek: The Next Generation Ressikan Flute 1:1 Scale Prop Replica is produced directly from surviving resources in the CBS archives. It's milled from solid brass alloy, hand painted to suggest a vintage finish, and completed with a wound cord tassel decoration. The beautiful flute features sound and measures about 10 1/2-inches long x 3/4-inch in diameter. The 12 1/2-inch long x 3 1/2-inch wide x 3 1/4-inch tall storage box is cast from polyresin and lined with EPS foam. This superb prop replica is a numbered limited edition that includes a certificate of authenticity booklet. It requires 2x "AAA" batteries, not included. The serious Star Trek
collector does not want to miss out on this incredible item.
Like the prop, the flute does not play. However, Factory Entertainment understands that the melody we want to hear is intrinsically linked to the prop and as such, it should be included in some way. This presented significant technical and licensing challenges, so the solution was a concealed audio feature in the storage box. When activated, it plays digital audio taken directly from the original soundtrack of the episode!
The Ressikan flute appeared in several episodes, and as is normal for productions, some small modifications where made to it over the course of time. This replica is designed to capture them all in single blended execution.
