A Starfleet command officer’s jacket as seen worn by William Shatner as "Admiral James T. Kirk" in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan ( Paramount, 1982 ).

The wool knit maroon jacket features shoulder pads and an asymmetrical front lapel with black and gold piping ( indicating Flag Officer rank ) that closes with snaps and a buckle at the right shoulder, where the silver-tone and gold-tone Admiral star is affixed to a cream-colored strap. There is a cream-colored strap with brass-tone rank pins and bars on the left sleeve, as well as a checkered black and gold band ( indicating Rear Admiral rank ) and an additional Admiral star. The garment has a cream-colored and black interior and includes a black leather belt with brass Starfleet buckle. An original Sotheby’s tag is attached to the interior.

The second installment in the Star Trek film franchise, The Wrath of Khan features Ricardo Montalban in the role of "Khan," a genetically enhanced antagonist who first appeared in the Star Trek: The Original Series episode, "Space Seed" ( Desilu Productions, 1967 ). Shatner can be as seen wearing the jacket at many points throughout the film, first while addressing the purpose of the "Kobayashi Maru" test with Saavik ( Kirstie Alley ) in the opening sequence. He removes the jacket for the away mission midway through the film but then can be seen putting it back on in the transporter room immediately afterwards. He can be as seen wearing it throughout the remainder of the film, with the cream-colored lining exposed during Kirk's emotional final moments with Spock ( Leonard Nimoy ).

Accompanied by Paramount Pictures Letter of Authenticity, signed by director Nicholas Meyer and dated January 30, 1997. The letter from Meyer states: This letter will confirm that the Star Fleet tunic jacket in your possession was worn by William Shatner in the film Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan, which was written and directed by me. I was presented with the jacket at the close of shooting in 1981, and I gave it directly to you."
