STAR TREK REPLICAS UP FOR AUCTION
Star Trek lovers looking for Enterprise chairs, Starfleet uniforms or a model Klingon Bird of Prey can seek out the dismantled pieces of a closed Las Vegas attraction based on the famous franchise.
Auctioneer Propworx Inc. plans to sell roughly 1,000 items large and small from Star Trek: The Experience at a warehouse sale today in Las Vegas, CEO Alec Peters said.
The attraction, based on the television series and movies, closed in 2008 after a 10-year run.
Among the items for sale are three large models of spaceships in need of repair or restoration — the USS Enterprise A, the USS Voyager and the Bird of Prey — as well as a replica of the Enterprise bridge from "Star Trek: The Next Generation."

CELEBS DONATE TO MISSISSIPPI GAY PROM
Green Day, former 'N Sync member Lance Bass and celebrity chef Cat Cora are among those helping pay for a gay-friendly prom in Mississippi next month.
Organizers say the event is open to everyone but geared toward gay students.
The American Humanist Association also will contribute $20,000 to the May 8 event in Tupelo.
The annual prom is organized by the Mississippi Safe Schools Coalition. This year's event has drawn attention because of Constance McMillen, a high school senior who challenged her school district's ban on same-sex dates at proms.
