If this clock looks familiar it’s because it’s a sculpture of Star Trek’s Deep Space Nine. It is called the “Starfleet Machine” and it is breathtaking. It was created by Swiss watch designer L’Epée, with microengineering from the lab MB&F.
Forget Frisbee. That is so last century. What you need in a flying disc is a starship. Like the U.S.S. Enterprise. That’s totally doable right? Hell yes. ThinkGeek has this Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise Flying Disc that is totally aerodynamic despite the Enterprise body and those nacelles being attached to the saucer section.
ThinkGeek came prepared for April Fools’ Day this year, with a number of fake items that are silly but not too outrageous that they can’t ever exist. A cynic would say that they’re using the holiday to drive interest up in products that they already plan on making.
Holy Spock! Check out these awesome starship Enterprise necklaces. I’m not a necklace wearing guy, but I want one of these. They just look so cool. Who knew that Star Trek ships looked so good with sparkly things on them?
This officially-licensed Star Trek beer is called Warnog. It is not nearly as strong as Klingon bloodwine, but then again, humans can’t handle that. Still, it does go good with a nice moving plate full of Gagh.
Mirror mirror on the hull, who is the most logical of all? This Spock stained glass mirror is just what you need if you think of yourself as the mirror universe Spock. Just gaze into it and practice your Vulcan meditation while admiring your reflection.
So what else can we geeks spend our dough on? How about this fantastic line of vinyl figures from Funko? These Star Trek original series characters look adorable and you can choose from Spock, Kirk, Andorian, Scotty, an Orion Slave Girl or a Klingon.
An imaginary thinking cap? Pfff. The next time you’re in a quandary, put on this replica of Captain Jean-Luc Picard’s jacket and let the cerebral hero of Star Trek: The Next Generation be your spirit animal.
Your finger will see the entire electromagnetic spectrum with Joel Wagner’s ring. It’s a miniature replica of the VISOR from Star Trek: The Next Generation. The device allowed chief engineer Geordi La Forge to see but in reality rendered actor LeVar Burton practically blind while he was wearing it.
The independent fan film Star Trek: Prelude Axanar launched on Kickstarter this past Saturday to raise funds. The goal was a modest $10,000(USD) and it was a 30-day fundraiser, so they figured the goal would be hit, but they didn’t expect it to happen so quickly.
If you and your dog are trekkies, you may have some silly Star Trek pet items around your place already. A new Trek-inspired pet product has surfaced that looks like Captain Kirk’s seat from the original series.
This year, give your Valentine something special. Like some Valentines Day Costume Tribbles. Don’t feed them, or you will be overrun with the furry little critters. And if your Valentine is a Klingon, find another gift.
