A loving father made this growth chart for his daughter’s 7th birthday using Sci-Fi characters (plus Frodo) as markers, starting with tribbles and ending with Darth Vader. Should’ve thrown in a Gundam there dad. You never know!
Don’t tell me that you’ve never wanted to drink some Romulan Ale. The drink was made popular by Star Trek, and pretty much anyone who’s seen the movies or the shows has wanted to drink some at some point in time.
Ok, I can’t imagine a better geek gift than this. It’s an officially-licensed Starfleet bathrobe.
Rarely seen on the deck of the Enterprise, these toasty terrycloth robes must have been used by the crew when they had some downtime between missions.
The robes are available in both Captain Kirk Yellow and Commander Spock Blue, and have the appropriate rank/department insignias and armbands for added accuracy – and we know how important those are to this guy.
I bet the Star Wars movies would have been much shorter if this was Han Solo’s ship:
But in terms of appearance, I think the whole is less than the sum of its parts. You can get the Millenterprise Falcon t-shirt at Redbubble for $24 (USD).
While it looks a bit sharp for an iPhone stand, there’s no denying that this thing is unique. It’s being billed as a steampunk accessory stand, and that’s a strange way to describe something that looks so distinctly Klingon to me…
Are you planning on spending a couple of grand on installing home automation systems in your house? Then you should most definitely look at these cool Star Trek-themed screens and interfaces that were recently created by Pascal.
This is basically a custom LCARS UI skin for Windows XP, which is the OS that is used to run his intelligent home.
It’s funny, I always thought when they named it the Starship Enterprise, they were talking about the type of ship that could fly through outer space. But apparently, the ship part was referring to a water-bound vessel.
Halloween tends to bring out the best in some geeks – whether they are creating awesome costumes or carving pumpkins that make me weep at how lame my jack-o-lantern is. I ran across some cool pumpkins that have been carved to show off the hotties and notties of the Star Trek universe today.
I only have one question: why would the Borg bother to assimilate an old car? Does it have some hive-mind abilities that we don’t know about? I don’t know and I don’t think it matters, but Craig Smith has definitely modified his car in an unusual fashion.
He started the assimilation of his car by cutting and forming plastic sheets.
London-based graphic designer Aled Lewis does a bit of drawing on the side, and when he does he says he likes to create stuff that make people laugh. His geeky art certainly does that. Take the piece below for example, which Lewis calls ‘Battle 101’:
If you lobbed a Wailord directly at your enemy, it really will be super effective.
Ok, get ready for it. This could be the best piece of Star Trek memorabilia ever. Melding the geeky pursuits of being a Trekkie and eating junk food, this pizza cutter is designed to look just like the Starship Enterprise.
It’s five-year mission, to explore new sauces, to seek out new cheese and meat combinations, to boldly cut deep dish where no man has before.
While I do agree with a few commentators on Reddit that science-fiction and fantasy shouldn’t be bundled together, I really like this infographic, which is a sort of mega-recap of the themes that we’ve seen in television over the last 40 years.
This graph was made by Steph Fox for io9, and very simply illustrates the trends in these TV genres over the years.
Every once in a while, I get a flashback to Bill Murray’s lyrical version of the Star Wars theme, and start busting out into “Star Wars, Nothing But Star Wars…” I guess that YouTuber qcomts was thinking along the same lines when he created his vocalized versions of classic Star Trek theme songs.
