Star Trek fans want Spock's ear!

One of Spock’s ears worn by Leonard Nimoy in the first Star Trek film has come up for auction and is expected to fetch up to £700 ($1100).

It may seem completely illogical, but fans of the smash Sixties television show Star Trek are expected to fork out hundreds of pounds for a single piece of memorabilia from the franchise.

For a false ear worn by key character Mr Spock in the first Star Trek feature film has come up for sale – and is expected to fetch a staggering £700.

The silicone latex auricle with its famous pointed end has been carefully preserved, and now Trekkies – as fans of the hit show are known – are queuing up to buy it.

To quote Spock: “It is curious how often you humans manage to obtain that which you do not want”.

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ’90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.
