A little over a week ago, I received an item I purchased via eBay. It was the shipping container used for the United States Navy’s AN/SSQ-47B sonobuoys. Why you may ask? Because it is actually one of the most widely re-purposed real-world object used as a prop and set decoration within the Star Trek universe.
Been a while since I have posted. But been even longer looking for over a year now for the found item that was used to create the conical shaped material container first used in several scenes in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (TWOK).
“Mankind will reach maturity on the day it learns to value diversity—of life and ideas. To be different is not necessarily to be ugly; to have a different idea is not necessarily to be wrong. The worst thing that could happen is for all of us to look and think and act alike.”
