An exact replica of the Black Badges worn on the show, the show’s prop master signed off on this badge himself, so needless to say, it looks like the real deal. With a strong magnetic clasp as well, it’s a great gift any modern-day Trekkie can wear to discover the mysteries of beyond.
Highly detailed and featuring an awesome retro color scheme taken straight from The Next Generation, the U.S.S. Enterprise-D Galaxy Class Starship LCARS Poster belongs on the wall of any Trekkie home, or at least in the Man Cave.
The central computer display features the starship itself as well as key LCARS system displays like Computer Core, Navigation, and Warp. It also vividly displays sensors, science stations, and shuttles. The delicate, art-quality print comes rolled up in a plastic sleeve inside of a sturdy mailing tube. Frame not included.

“Beam me up Scotty.” When you add hot water, coffee, tea, chocolate, or any hot liquid to this heat-changing mug, Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, Dr. McCoy, and Lieutenant Uhura will magically disappear from the Transporter Room on one side and re-appear to explore the planetary surface on the other.
The process takes about 15 seconds, and it’s just plain fun! If that weren’t enough, the image of the characters also doubles as a level and temperature gauge. The crewmembers begin transporting back to the ship as the coffee is sipped or starts getting cold. Pretty cool, right?

Whose ready to fight to the death for intergalactic supremacy and the glory of the Empire?
Made for those loyal to the U.S.S. Enterprise rather than Khan’s Klingon army, this Star Trek: The Next Generation Monopoly board game boldly goes where no other game has gone before.

The Boardwalk and Park Place squares have been replaced with pictures of Data and Borg, the players are members of the U.S.S. Enterprise crew, and gold-pressed Latinum bars are used instead of cash. Instead of buying real estate on Earth, players use their Latinum bars to align with alien species. It’s a great new twist on a gaming classic.

The stylish bifold is made of PU leather and features a money slot, three card slots, a clear window ID, and most importantly a metal Starfleet insignia that looks just like the ones worn by Kirk, Spock, Picard, Data, and every other member of the crew. Sure, the insignia sticks out a bit and may be a little uncomfortable in a pair of tight pants, but most agree it’s well worth the sacrifice.

However, they don’t stop there. The real showstopper with these socks are the little Vulcan ears that are attached and poke out to make a comedic statement. They may be tacky and absent of taste, but who cares? When it comes to silly Star Trek fun, these zany socks are tough to beat.
The ultimate gift for die-hard Star Trek fans, this impressive book chronicles the history of every Starfleet starship featured on the Star Trek TV shows and films.
