James Cawley grew up as an avid Star Trek fan. He began collecting props and costumes from the original series in 1997 and acquired the original TOS Enterprise blueprints from William Ware Theiss when he interned on Star Trek: The Next Generation as a professional costume maker. He then spent 15 years researching, crafting and refining his set replicas alongside other dedicated fans and craftspeople. Pouring over stills and frame captures from TOS and sourcing vintage materials and antiques, Cawley ensured that even the smallest details were accurately and lovingly reproduced.
When not in the 23rd century, Cawley is also an award-winning Elvis Tribute artist. Catch his show at Trekonderoga on Saturday night!
