Star Trek Fan's Lawsuit Dropped
A Star Trek fan's $7 million (£4.4 million) lawsuit against a New York auction house he accused of selling him "bogus" memorabilia from the TV series has been dropped.

Trekkie Ted Moustakis claimed bosses at Christie's auction house intentionally lied about three items billed as "one of a kind" and used by Commander Data, his favourite character on Star Trek: The Next Generation.

The items included a $6,600 (£4,125) poker visor, an $11,000 (£6,875) poker table, and a $6,000 (£3,750) uniform.

Moustakis claims Brent Spiner, the actor who played Data, told him at a sci-fi convention, "That's not my visor," prompting the New Jersey man to take legal action over the "knockoffs".

The New York Supreme Court's Appellate Division threw out the case on Tuesday, insisting Christie's had never represented the uniform as being "one of a kind" in its auction catalogue.
