Martin's Motivation: It is not about the money - it is the matter that counts and my mission in life to preserve the future of Star Trek's past
When PARAMOUNT Pictures completed the STAR TREK movies and series, all kind of requisites, costumes and accessories were stored, disposed and in the worst case even scrapped. In 2005 the warehouses of the film studios were packed, so they decided to liquidate the inventory and to sell out everything. Paramount appointed Christie's Auction House in New York to run an event where props from 40 years of Star Trek history would be auctioned off to fans.
Martin Netter took advantage of this one and only moment and bought almost the complete Archive having the idea of furnishing a "complete starship" and keeping it preserved for the fandom.
