The Phaser prop gun.<br />
<br />
 A super-rare prop gun from the original series of Star Trek has emerged for sale for a staggering £40,000 almost 50 years after it first appeared on screen.<br />
<br />
The fibreglass prop, known as a phaser, is one of only two known to exist from the ground-breaking show which followed the adventures of William Shatner as maverick captain James T. Kirk and his crew on the starship Enterprise.<br />
<br />
Star Trek is now considered one of the greatest television programmes ever made, and original props demand a high price among its legion of fans around the world.<br />
<br />
The prop has been described as "an incredible piece of television history" and is tipped to fetch $60,000 - around £40,000 - when it is auctioned at Propworx in Los Angeles.
