Today’s computer use pro-tip is brought to you by Star Trek.
This was made by a commenter on xADAMx‘s blog, after the latter posted the original reminder, which he saw in one of the bathrooms of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
I used to have some mugs with pictures of dogs on them when I was a kid – until they eventually broke. I think I still have one in storage, but who knows. Anyway, if you like having strange images on your mugs, then this Mr.
This retro video is sure to put a smile on the face of any original Trekkies out there. If you were a kid in the 1970s, then this is exactly what your epic Star Trek fan flick would look like.
This super-8 fan film was made by Rob Hampton and his friends in Cape Cod in 1978.
Two random images I found on the web today while searching for something totally unrelated…
Surprisingly, FederationLisa and KlingonLisa were created by two entirely different people, probably on opposite sides of the globe (or the universe).
After yesterday’s iPod revolution post, it comes to no surprise that there are quite a few of these infographics from Online Schools that are really interesting. This one has everything to do with the original Star Trek series.
One great fact, that almost all trekkies already know, is that if you were a crew member of the Enterprise and you were wearing a red shirt, chances are that you’d die in the current episode.
Measuring only 8.8 µm, this replica of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701D was “fabricated in one-billionth scale by 30 kV Ga+ focused-ion- beam CVD using phenanthrene gas.” Oh I see. My guess was a bit off. I though they used 76 gV dispersed quark blastorz CBGB with napthalene and farthrene.
This is the perfect webcam for any Trekkie out there. It’s made to look like the original Starship Enterprise.
It’s also great for doing video chats or sharing video with your fellow Trekkers around the galaxy.
Entertainment Earth is selling a Star Trek: The Motion Picture phaser replica, an affordable yet fun gift for Trekkie fans. Or kids, because they’re bound to like anything that lights up and goes pew pew. The replica is based on production blueprints of the movie prop and uses sound effects from the movie as well.
It’s beginning to look a lot like a Star Trek holiday season. First we’re faced with killer (and economical) stockings, and now a pair of etched wine glasses, for the grape-loving fan in your life.
Perfect for a little Springwine, am I right?
Not only is this one of the more creative Christmas projects we’ve seen around here, it’s one of the cheapest–something that may very well appeal to those of us saving up for new (electronic!) toys. Also?
You lucky Alpine School District students and your Space Education Center with its spaceship simulators. I hate you. All I had when I was a kid were teachers who liked to gossip and humiliate students who didn’t go to church.
If you’re not one of the devotees attached to the official community–yes, one already exists–for the as-yet-undated MMORPG Star Trek Online, you might not have seen much about the forthcoming game, and that means you can boldly go into this screenshot without any expectations.
That’s right: each Spock Monkey is a combination of three halves, resulting in one logical, emotionally detached yet huggable primate. I used Vulcan math to calculate Spock Monkey’s constitution.
Each Spock Monkey is lovingly handmade, so each of them is unique.
If you have children in your life (or are just a Halloween junkie!), you’ve probably begun to notice that retailers are already loading up on the candy and gear, and that means the question of those pesky costumes is looming over your head.
You just can’t keep a good rumor down. One would think Apple aficionados would have enough to talk about, what with Snow Leopard now gracing the machines of any Mac-owner willing to pony up the paltry $29 Apple asking price.
I guess not.
