Star Trek Rings: A Match Made in Space

Star Trek Ring

Looking for a nerdy ring for your partner who’s just as nerdy as you? Then look no further than the ones that Paul Michael Design have on display on their digital storefront on Etsy. Their latest offering is a ring inspired by Star Trek’s Starship Enterprise. The ring itself essentially looks like the famed spaceship from the hit franchise.

Other ring designs include Star Wars’ R2-D2, Han Solo frozen in carbonite, Nintendo controllers, Wonder Woman’s crown, and Zelda’s Tri-Force.Continue Reading

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

Bing Me Up? Check Out Bing’s Interactive Star-Trek Themed Search Results

Bing Star Trek Search

Google has always known as the search engine giant, but is its stranglehold slowly slipping away? Bing is on the rise as it accounts for 25.6 percent of the search results in the US. Perhaps in a bid to further cement their popularity (and following Google’s footsteps somewhat with interactive search), Bing has unveiled interactive Star Trek-themed search results that’ll beam you up to a different galaxy on the interwebs. Or should I say, Bing you up?

Just type in “Beam me up” on Bing.com’s homepage and you can see what I’m talking about for yourself.

Video: Dodds Mattress Star Trek Commercial Is Cringe Inducing

By David Ponce

This is a short commercial for this outfit called Dodds Furniture And Mattress in Victoria, BC. The geek angle? It’s got a Star Trek theme. The better geek angle? It’s the most atrocious thing we’ve ever seen.

Here’s to solid production values and to what looks like Starship Serta… (Update: Upon closer inspection, it’s the U.S.S. Dodds)

Star Trek 20 Questions

Mattel Star Trek 20 Questions (Image courtesy Amazon)
By Andrew Liszewski

These electronic versions of 20 questions, which seem to magically guess what you’re thinking by asking a maximum of — wait for it — 20 questions, are nothing new. But one that’s geared towards Star Trek fans and looks like a miniature version of the USS Enterprise? Well that’s something to note in your captain’s log. Fans of the newer series like TNG or DS9 might be disappointed to learn the game only covers characters and facts from the original Star Trek series and movies. But there’s still plenty of storylines to keep this thing interesting for at least the length of a drive to a Trekkie convention. Available from Amazon for just $8.75.

Build Your Own R/C Enterprise Zeppelin

By Chris Scott Barr

Do you like Star Trek and have a fascination with do-it-yourself projects? Then I’ve got just the thing for you. It’s an R/C Starship Enterprise Zeppelin. That’s right, this baby actually flies! Granted, it might not be the most perfect replica of the famed ship, but it does bear a striking resemblance to the one seen in the original TV series.

It’s not going to take a rocket scientist to get this project off the ground, but you might not want to tackle this if you’ve not messed around with R/C devices before. Thankfully, there are detailed instructions over at Instructables, so if you’re feeling adventurous, you can craft one for yourself.

These Star Trek Wetsuits Aren’t Meant For Space Travel

star-trek-wetsuits

By Chris Scott Barr

Hailing from the Midwest means that I’ve really never had a reason to own a wetsuit. However, for those of you that happen to spend a lot of time in waters that require such protection, I give you the Star Trek Wetsuit. If you have the need to show your love of the original series even while underwater, then these are for you.

These 7MM suits are tailored specifically to your exact measurements and supplied by JMJ Wetsuits.  At $470 a pop, you’ll be paying around a hundred bucks extra for the Star Trek theme. The traditional yellow, blue and red uniform colors are available, though no sane person would dare jump in the water in a red suit. That’s just asking for trouble.

Get The New Star Trek Movie On A Limited Edition Flash Drive

By Andrew Liszewski

I’ll spare you my thoughts on the new Star Trek film, given this isn’t a movie-review site, and I seem to stand in the minority with my opinions, but if you were a fan of Abrams take on the Trek universe you might be interested in this limited edition version of the film which comes on a 4GB Starfleet insignia flash drive. (Each one is individually numbered.) The digital copy of the film is all DRM’d up so it can only be played on up to 5 registered devices, or burned to a DVD, and it’s about 1GB in size, leaving you 3GB of storage to boldly store what no man has stored before. ~$28 from Play.com.
