After 40 years as one of the biggest franchises in television and movie history, CBS Paramount Television is opening its archives to the public and letting "Star Trek" fans own a piece of the cult favorite.

On Oct. 5-7, Christie's will auction props, costumes, and set designs from "Star Trek"'s 6 TV series and 10 feature films.

Three-quarters of the collection has been selected, but Christie's is working with CBS to include items that "will appeal to the widest fan base" and make sure every generation of "Star Trek" fans are represented, says Cathy Elkies, director of special collections at Christie's.

The collection to be auctioned will be touring various cities around the globe, starting in Fulda, Germany, and moving on to San Diego, London, Seattle, and Las Vegas before finally landing in New York City.
Here is a sneak peek at some of the items on the block.
