Apple 'Star Trek'?

Hi folks,

Googling around for more info on NeXT Computer to flesh out my new NeXT page
on Binary Dinosaurs turned up something I'd really like to get my paws on
but I'll bet was consigned to the bin straight away - the 'star trek'
project started by Apple to port MacOS across to Intel hardware in the early
90s. So far I've found that a team of engineers succeeded in the port, but
it was canned in 1993 when Apple was moving from 68K to PowerPC processors
and it was found to be faster on a 486.

The same tale reminds me that I'd really like a Be Box too :)
