Profiles in History announced Thursday that it will be auctioning the first Mac Plus to roll off the assembly line. Given to Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry by Apple as a gift, the unit has the serial number F4200NUM0001 (see photo below). Profiles in History is a firm that specialized in auctioning Hollywood memorabilia.

The firm said that the auction will include a signed letter of provenance from Rod Roddenberry, Gene Roddenberry's son. The Mac is Lot # 626 in the Featured Auction 37, which is being conducted on October 8-9, 2009. Profiles in History estimated the Mac to go for US$800-$1,200.

For the Trek nerds among us, there are a number of uniforms and props from the Star Trek franchise also being offered in the auction.

I have a Plus about 7 feet to the left of me. I'm not the original owner, but I've had it for close to 10 years. I have quite a few older Macs hanging around - they were really fun to play with. Problem is that the really old models are getting hard to maintain these days.

Haha - my first exposure to a Mac was in college. No Turtle for me... it was MacWrite!

Do you mean Logo? That's a functional programming language that uses turtle graphics.

That was probably it. I was waaaay young when I used it. All I remember doing is drawing lopsided-ass boxes.
