Captain Jean-Luc Picard also kept a fossil ammonite on display in his ready room aboard the USS Enterprise-E. (Star Trek: First Contact)

This fossil was auctioned off in Christie's 40 Years of Star Trek: The Collection auction. The auction information suggested that it wasn't an ammonite after all, but rather a representative of a long-dead civilization of intelligent mollusks. [1]
