    I'm looking for a bathroom sink faucet that I saw on First Contact that just looks cool as hell.

    The scene is at the beginning of the movie where Picard is dreaming about the Borg and he goes to wash his face and when he looks in the mirror, this Borg implant comes out of his face.

    The faucet is silver and the water comes out of it like a waterfall. It's hard to explain. If you watch that scene and pay attention when Picard pours water in his hands before splashing his face, you'll see what I'm talking about.

    I looks cool and I'm wondering if anyone has seen anything like it on sale or if it was just a prop for the movie.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hmmm... I can't help but wonder if Star Trek has lost its core fan base... [​IMG]

    If you do a search at Kohler.com it appears that they have a whole line of fixtures with differnt handles that have the Flume Spout including tub faucets.

    ...all of which are ridiculously expensive. Over 800 bucks for a FAUCET? Yeesh.

    I did a search on ebay. Much more reasonable prices (around $200).

    Thanks again guys.

    I was at Home Depot recently, and they had an end cap display with the waterfall type of faucet. You might check there. Not cheap, though!

    I think the first time I saw the "waterfall" faucet was in the movie Sleeping with the Enemy with Julia Roberts. Very cool, but like Buzz said, I can envision the water stains being a hassle.
