    William Shatner "Capt. Kirk" spacesuit from Star Trek: The Original Series, episode, "The Tholian Web". William Shatner "Capt. Kirk" spacesuit from Star Trek: The Original Series, episode, "The Tholian Web". Vintage silver spacesuit costume made from silver lame worn by William Shatner as "Captain James T. Kirk" in Star Trek: The Original Series. On all but one occasion, episodes of the original Star Trek series involved the "Away Team" travelling to "Class-M" planets where the atmosphere was hospitable and the air was surprisingly breathable. Spacesuits were unnecessary under these circumstances. In the 9th episode of the 3rd season, "The Tholian Web", spacesuits were used for the first and only time and worn by Capt. Kirk, Spock, McCoy and Chekov. Constructed of silver lame, the 1-piece jumpsuit with front zipper closure features elastic stirrups on pant hems and fabric loops on sleeves. A series of (4) colorful metallic fabric-wrapped tubes span the length of the suit and travel down both arms. Lower portion of the tubes end in carved rigid foam, metallic wrapped caps with some ornamentation. A white velcro belt bisects the midriff of the jumpsuit acting as a utility belt to attach a phaser. Internal marking in the collar is handwritten, "Shatner" in black marker pen. Helmet and gloves are not included. The suit remains in production-used good condition with some signs of age. Metallic fabric is intact, but loose on some portions of tubing. A striking display piece and an incredibly rare and historic Kirk costume. The DeForest Kelley "McCoy" spacesuit from this episode sold at the Christie's Star Trek sale for an astounding $144,000. Provenance: Paramount Costume Collection, Christie's East, December 12, 1990, lot 112.
