Star Trek Planetary Glassware

istg_st_planetary_glassware_set_grid

There seems to be quite a bit of interest over planetary-themed items, as can be evidenced right here. However, most of the time the planets in question are the ones in our very own solar system. That’s all fine, but what about the planets in other, completely fictional universes? The Star Trek Planetary Glassware celebrates some of the planets encountered in Gene Roddenberry’s tales.

We’ve chosen to highlight several M-class planets: Earth, the capital planet of the United Federation of Planets, home of Starfleet Headquarters, and the location of the main branch of Starfleet Academy; Vulcan, the Vulcan homeworld and a founding member of the United Federation of Planets; Romulus, the homeworld of the Romulans and the capital world of the Romulan Star Empire; and Qo’noS, homeworld of the Klingons and the capital of the Klingon Empire. We also threw in a shot glass for good measure which resembles a Borg Cube, the primary vessel of the Borg Collective

The glasses are sadly not microwave or dishwasher safe, but with a little TLC this set will keep your nerdy self entertained for years to come. It’s $40.

A Change Of Scenery With These Star Trek Glowing Coasters

star-trek-coasters-1

Everyone is freaking out about Star Wars, so of course the Intertubes are flooded with merchandise related to the movie. So here’s a nice, refreshing change in the form of a product tied to another pretty successful franchise: Star Trek. The Star Trek Transporter Pad LED Coasters won’t beam your drink to a faraway planet, but they will give it a bit of an ethereal glow. An LED in the base lights up when you put your drink down on them, and will give your libation a bit of a shine. That’s really all they do. Oh, and they play a “materialization/dematerialization” sound when you place your drink down or pick it up again. Please note: they won’t actually perform any type of teleportation, except for maybe $30 out of your bank account when you buy a set of 4.

Steel Star Trek Coasters Boldly Go Where No…

startrek_coasters_1

You know… we’re groaning at the thought of having to write yet another pun-filled headline that’s a Star Trek or Star Wars reference. So you get the idea. Here are some coasters with the Star Fleet insignia stamped on them. They come in a set of 5, are 4″ on each side, and are made from 3/16” thick, Food Grade 304 Stainless Steel with a felt backing, so they’ll feel heavy and premium. There are many other ways of keeping your drinks from ruining your tabletop, but very few that proclaim quite as loudly just which brand of nerd you are (and by the way, we mean “nerd” in the best possible way here). The Star Trek Coasters are made by Easy seller ApocalypseFab, and cost $44 for the set.

Star Trek Enterprise Sushi Set Boldly Goes Where No Raw Fish…

starship_enterprise_sushi_1

Oh, we hate bad headlines as much as the next guy, but sometimes it’s as if they write themselves, especially when it comes to Star Trek stuff. So you’ll have to forgive us. It doesn’t change the fact that the above Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise Sushi Set is pretty awesome. You set the food down on the wooden plate, and use the ship’s warp trail as chopsticks. The top of the saucer section comes off to reveal a sauce dish, and you can rotate the ship so that it doesn’t get in the way of your grub. Best part is that it’ll only set you back $35, which is more than reasonable for what seems to be a Thinkgeek creation and an exclusive.

What’s Klingon for Awesome? Star Trek Family Decals

Star Trek Family Decals

Most decals indicating that there’s a family on board are boring and of the serious type. If you’re looking for something different, then you might want to get these Star Trek decals instead. They weren’t exactly made for that purpose, but hey, no one’s stopping you if you want to use it that way.

They’re actually sold in sets of 32 decals, where 23 of these are based on characters from Star Trek: The Original Series. Mix and match and throw in some random Tribbles when you feel like it (there are actually five of those included in every set). Each set is priced at $14.99.

Eau My George Takei: Fragrance With a Hint of Hikaru Sulu

Eau My George Takei

Who can ever forget George Takei or the role he played on Star Trek? Now he’s going on the path that other big stars have…with the release of his own brand of perfume! It’s called “Eau My” (oh my!) and comes packaged in a regular-looking bottle that’ll give you a whiff of what Takei might actually smell like. Well, either that, or what he thinks smells good, anyway.

George Takei’s Eau My is subtle and charming, with top notes of mandarin zest, Italian bergamot and fresh ozone transitioning to night-blooming jasmine, white freesia petals and grated ginger. Sensual woods, crystalized amber, soft skin musk, and vetiver will delight you when dry.

A 1.7-oz bottle of  Eau My is priced at $39.99
