ThinkGeek has just revealed one of its big toys for this year’s SDCC, and it’s a doozy. I always have thought of my TV remote as a zapper of sorts, so it only makes sense that you’d use a phaser to change channels.
We know that Kirk didn’t discriminate when it came to romancing women, but he especially loved the green-skinned beauties. With that in mind, I present to you the best Star Trek cosplay ever. A pregnant Orion woman with a sign that says Kirk was here.
I figured that Borg eye patches are what you get when the Borg assimilate pirates. Nope. Atomic Girl made this cool Borg inspired accessory from resin and you know it’s going to be the latest fashion craze.
While the Starship Enterprise seems to get a disproportionate amount of geek love, I’ve still always been a fan of the good old Galileo Shuttlecraft. In fact, I remember building a model of one when I was a kid.
If you are a fan of whiskey who likes to keep it chilled without any ice to water it down check this out. ThinkGeek now has some Star Trek Borg Cube Whiskey Chillers. You get six steel cubes that keep your drink cold, each emblazoned with the official Borg emblem.
What do you get the geek girl who has everything? Get her a Star Trek purse. This one even comes with little Tribbles attached. I don’t think a Tribble infestation should be a problem, unless your purse is full of quadrotriticale.
This must have been one of the episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation where the crew was tripping balls. Strangely I don’t remember watching this one when it first aired. Now that I have… Well, I’ll never look at Trek the same way again.
Are you looking for some cute jewelry that won’t cost a fortune? Forget diamonds and gold. Just put some Star Trek crew members on your finger. I love these little chibi looking Kirk and Spock in their original series uniforms.
When you beam down to an alien planet, you want to make sure you have all of your gear. You also want to make sure you aren’t wearing a red shirt. The most important things are to have your phaser and tricorder with you.
Crochet. The final frontier… Do you like the logical side of Spock, but also want him to have a softer side? Well, this Spock/Minion amigurumi is the perfect new member of your crew if you have a spot open on your bridge.
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.
