A pivotal point in Terra Nova mythology occurs when the brilliant-but-duplicitous young physicist Lucas Taylor (Ashley Zuckerman) develops a way to communicate and transport between Terra Nova and the past­. Of course, he hopes this capability will lead to the demise of the compound – and his father, Nathaniel Taylor (Stephen Lang). It also leads to some of the most intense moments of the series. It’s not often that fans of a television show have an opportunity to own one of its inventions, but VIP Fan Auctions has received the device built by the Terra Nova props department and known simply as Lucas Taylor’s “portal contraption” (above) – and it’s now available to the winning bidder. Click here for photos and more details – and place your bid today. But please, do not use the device to go back in time and manipulate the bidding.
