NEW STAR TREK MOVIE MARRED BY THEFT
The cast and crew of the latest STAR TREK movie found their greatest challenge wasn't battling aliens - it was keeping the set safe from thieves.
After a break during filming, the cast and crew of the fourth STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION movie, which has just wrapped production, returned to find a gaping hole on the ENTERPRISE's bridge. They soon discovered the captain's chair was missing.
It marked the third time that someone had made off with the command post of CAPTAIN JEAN-LUC PICARD - played by PATRICK STEWART - since 1994.
Set decorators scrambled to build new Naugahyde chair at a cost of $15,000 (£10,714), and sources say that a Trekkie memorabilia collector may pay up to 10 times that amount for it.
TOM CUNNEFF of America's PEOPLE magazine says, "The studio suspects an inside job, but they've yet to catch the culprits."
