This morning I have just ordered a copy of the 40th Star Trek Anniversary Auction Catalogue from Christie's. :D
(even the catalogue is not free ... but i reckon this is the only item i can affort to buy, hehe ...) :lol:

2-Volume Catalogue Set: £51.00
Shipping and Handling: £15.00
Total cost: £66.00 (nearly S$200)


Why payment in £ Pounds Sterling?

This pre-ordered catalogues will ship 3-4 weeks prior to the sale. The auction is scheduled on 5-7 Oct 2006 at NY.
