   379. William Shatner “Capt. James T. Kirk” ensemble from his controversial death scene in Star Trek VII: Generations.(Paramount, 1994) Original (5) piece ensemble including (1) long sleeve white spandex top with short standing collar with quilted padded cells, also present at sleeve cuffs, with bias cut hem and zipper back closure, retaining studio applied SFX blood from scene, and costumer’s internal label printed, “Star Trek VII” and handwritten, “W.S.”, (1) collarless vest with red wool and black knit spandex panels, square neck, metal and resin communicator pin on left chest, interior lined in black satin, with zipper front closure, and retaining internal costumer’s bias label printed, “Star Trek VII” and handwritten, “David W” and “Bernie”, (1) pair matching black wool pants with black and red stripes down sides, black knit cuffs with elastic stirrups, retaining internal Western Costume bias label typed, “James Doohan”, (1) pair white elastic suspenders with white leather button-on attachments, and (1) pair black suede “shoe lace covers” retaining studio applied velcro patches and remnants of adhesive, and costumer’s paper tags handwritten, “Wm Shatner Shoe Lace Covers – He took sneakers worn”. To this day, “Kirk’s” (Shatner) death remains one of the biggest controversies within the fandom, deemed by many as, “unceremonious”, and, “very poor”. Even Malcolm McDowell who played “Dr. Soren”, the villain who ultimately pulls the trigger on the beloved captain had this to say, “I don’t care whose fault it was.Whoever came up with his death at the end, I thought it was really cheesy. I just think the man, whether you like him or not, should have been given a blazing death. And I, course, would have been happy to have supplied that. Look, I just think it was a missed opportunity for this great, iconic figure that everybody loved or everybody loathed. He was one of those great figures that caused dissension and debate and arguments.” All pieces exhibiting studio distressing, soiling, and production wear. Overall in very good condition. Originally obtained from the set by costumer David Roesler and comes with a LOA. $4,000 - $6,000
