Have you thought of making it yourself.

Your right most things are hard to find esp when you are dealing with penny pushers, but some things can be reproduced you just have to specify to your liking. There is such thing as craftsman in this day and age.

I had a leather jacket made esp for me, I met a guy who owned a jacket store and I told him how come I can never find a perfectly well tailored jacket and he told me he could make it.* When I heard this I was ecstatic and I brought in a few pictures and he took in a few measurements and Voila ('vuala').

Never let me slip, cause if I slip, then I'm slippin.

We have a market here wanting such things. Why aren't the craftsmen coming here? "If you make it, we will buy it" is true in the fan community. Trek fans but things from Spock potatohead to thousand dollar paintings of fake space craft.

Why aren't the furniture builders, glass smiths, and such proposing these things to the franchise? Or why isn't the franchise seeking them out for such things? The producers are failing to supply the goods we consumers demand.
