Stardate 5928.5, we had a pool party for Spock’s birthday today, and what do you know, my chair floats. I don’t think we will ever hear Kirk or Picard utter that sentence in the Captain’s log. But if you’re a small adult or have a child that likes science fiction, ThinkGeek has something you’ll definitely want to buy.
For $24.99 (USD), you can get your own inflatable Star Trek captain’s chair. The chair is decorated to look just like the one Kirk used on the bridge as he boldly went around the universe in the original series. The chair measures 27.75″(H) x 29.25″(W) x 18″(D), and will hold a maximum weight of 120 pounds, so normal-sized adults can’t really sit on it – at least not more than once. I wonder if the chair would float upright if you used it as a pool toy.
This would be the perfect chair for your little Star Trek geek while you watch reruns together. Personally, I would rather see an inflatable recreation of Jean-Luc Picard’s chair, but that’s just me.
