ST. LOUIS - Dec. 29, 2013 - PRLog -- Rare collection of photographs from some of the earliest Star Trek Conventions taken by official event photographer Jeff Maynard are being sold at auction. Includes cast photos, behind the scenes shots and photographs of the fan costume contests. Also included is a Comic Con guide from 1974 George Clayton Johnson (the co-author of Logan's Run), Ray Bradbury (with a doodle next to his name in the same ink (author of Fahrenheit 451), and Charles Schulz (with drawing of Woodstock).

Back in 1975 Angelique Trouvere attended the Star Trek Convention at the Hotel Commodore in New York City. She was joined by tens of thousands of other Trekkies. This was one of the very first mainstream Star Trek Cons and had major stars in attendance Gene Roddenberry George Takei, Jimmy Doohan, Mason Reese, Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, William Shatner, Authur Saha, Hal Clement, Will Ware Thiess, Robert Lansing, Diane Duane, Mavel Barrett, and David Gerrold.

These conventions were full of fun including the masquerade contest. Many of the Trekkies donned elaborate home made costumes including Angelique Trouvere. The costumes were wild, and often risque.

Jeff Maynard was the official photographer at the event and as such took many public and behind the scene photos of the stars and the attendees. As you can imagine Maynard's lens found the attractive Ms. Trouvere more than once. These photographs taken over the course of several years at various conventions were left to Ms. Trouvere by Maynard before his death.
