Buttons on Captain Kirk's chair
The buttons on Captain Kirk's chair were made by putting colored marbles into the holes and then shining flashlights up through them. When Star Trek: The Exhibition first opened in California, three guards had to stay with the chair because visitors were using screwdrivers to pry out the marbles.
