This is one of the two outfits, which were worn on screen by Leonard Nimoy in his role as Spock in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989) during his conversation with Kirk at the mountainside in the Yosemite National Park.
It consists of a denim jacket with fluorescent green accents and a square shaped hole created in the front for use around a harness and a purple and black Dickie with matching fabric scraps and gray colored scraps.
For the first scenes, when Kirk (William Shatner) and Spock are talking in a side view, Nimoy stood on a moveable teeter-totter. For the further scenes, the production team installed a pole at the fake rock wall made of fiberglass, attached one end to a body suit Nimoy was wearing under the outfit and moved the pole up and down.
About the Designer
Nilo Rodis-Jamero was the leading artist for the costumes used in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.He worked at ILM in the 1980s. He served as a visual effects art director on The Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Star Trek III: The Search For Spock. He is credited as the designer of the popular Klingon Bird of Prey first seen in Star Trek III. He went on to work as a costume designer for Return of the Jedi and as an art director on Star Trek IV, V and VI. When William Shatner saw the detail that Rodis put into his storyboards for Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, he hired him as a costume designer. He shared those duties with Dodie Shepard.
Usually it is a lot of work, but sometimes you're just lucky and able to find enough small details for a comparison between your item and the one on screen. When I had a look at the back side of Spock's Denim jacket I was more than thrilled about all the recognizable areas of the fabric, which are absolutely unique - just like a human finger print. For a clearly screenmatch you can compare the photo of the jacket (left) with a screencap from the movie below.
Publicity Shot for Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
The padd was featured in Star Trek: Insurrection. The high quality cast resin hand prop has been painted metallic gold with a raised black "screen" and silver tape accents. The image on the "screen" is that of a spatial scan with starship positions and Son'a character letters. On the reverse is a red application featuring similar Son'a character letters. The static prop measures approx. 9 X 6 X .5 inches.
It seems to be that the padd is the one which Gallatin use when he reports to Ru'afo (F. Murray Abraham) and Admiral Dougherty (Anthony Zerbe) because every Son'a Padd has a different red application on the reverse.
If you compare the photo above with the screncap you can see that the red applications are identical.

The Animated Series (or TAS as it is known) holds a lot of nostalgia for me and many others. Although I was already a fan of Trek before I saw it, TAS was really my first extensive introduction to the series, since it was in first-run, while in the early 70's the original series re-runs had not kicked in to the extent they would a few years later, and were harder to find. Although I never had a TAS coloring book, I have found an excellent site by Kail Tescar devoted to the series that has created an entire gallery of such pages! Go here to view them, then print your choices out and let your kids have at it! You can help a little too.
Below are some samples from the site. Sharpen your crayons and have fun!
Bonus: a sexy painting of Lt. Uhura found online for your enjoyment!
Kirk was a real romancer, so, guys, take a cue from him today and learn how to make your lady swoon! If you don't get the same results, tell her to close her eyes and imagine you are the young Captain Kirk.
