I guess this is a double bonus for any Mac + Star Trek fans out there. :)

"In 1986, Apple unveiled one of the most popular Macintoshes ever, the Mac Plus. The company gave the first one (serial number #F4200NUM0001) to Star Trek's creator, Gene Roddenberry."

Now that one will definitely be worth $5,000.00 or more, imo with just the serial number alone.

That's cool and everything but I'm confused with the upgraded comments. They're kinda making it sound like it's not a MacPlus and was modded or something during the years, although it's still his which is where the money is.

Offside comment, they actually used Amiga's for the computer animation and fake computer menus on the ship. Even into the next generation where it was still Amiga animation here and there (i think they went Mac on the space ship animation) but menus were still Amiga from what I heard.

Star Trek Voyager and Enterprise used G4 Cubes.

It looks like it needs some de-yellowing (Retr0brite) treatment.
