Awesome Star Trek

Star Trek Monopoly

Star Trek Monopoly

It’s too much for our Andorian antennae to handle: Star Trek Continuum Edition squeezes all our favorite Enterprise/DS9 captains onto one board, with both Monopoly and Star Trek rules.

Trailer: Star Trek D.A.C.

Trailer: Star Trek D.A.C.

Roughly half of this debut trailer for Star Trek D.A.C. uses clips from the Star Trek movie, which isn’t a good sign for the game; still, any footage is like Dilithium from heaven for Trekkies.

Trekkies Bash Star Trek

Trekkies Bash Star Trek

The Onion takes a bat’leth to J.J. Adams’ new Star Trek film with their latest video, which criticizes it for being actually fun, watchable, and leaving out an aging, bloated William Shatner.

Book: Shatner Quake

Shatner Quake tops the list for ridiculous sci-fi novels: in it, every William Shatner character gets sucked into our world to do battle with a Bruce Campbell terrorist cult. No, seriously.

Star Trek Clock

YOUgNeek’s Star Trek Clock is a direct answer to Trekkies that felt left out by their previous Star Wars Clock; it’s made with 12 Micro Machine vehicles and a DS9 in the middle.

Walkthru: Star Trek DAC

Walkthru: Star Trek DAC

Heretofore seen only in screenshots, Star Trek: D.A.C. is finally unveiled in a series of Walkthrough videos (Part 1, 2, 3); it’s basically a 2D shooter a-la Asteroids, albeit a beautiful one.

Apparently, the 22nd century is not only free of money and war but forks and spoons; this limited edition Star Trek Titanium Spork is engraved with NCC-1701 and individually numbered.

V is for Virgin Tee

Fellow trekkies, let’s face it: the whole pointy eared thing is not a babe magnet, nor is the hand salute; hopefully, you won’t be wearing this V is for Virgin tee at your next pon farr.

Eminem: We Made You

Eminem: We Made You

Eminem’s smart-mouthed satire is back in grand, surprisingly geeky style: his We Made You music video satirizes Star Trek, Transformers, Sarah Palin and Jessica Simpson.

Website: Trek Yourself

Website: Trek Yourself

Done Terminating Yourself? Trek Yourself is a bit klunkier and only the Vulcan option is worth your time, but we still had fun giving arch nemeses Bill Gates and Steve Jobs a bowl cut.

The Enterprise Project

The Enterprise Project

The Enterprise Project is an example of promos done right: Star Trek meets urban with these 34″ movie replicas, modded to high heaven by 24 artists including comic book artist Jim Lee.

Star Trek: Countdown TPB

We’re leery of movie tie-ins, but Star Trek: Countdown helps to establish continuity with the last Trek movie (Nemesis); all four comics are combined in this trade paperback edition.

Short of working plasma conduits, this 6×10 Star Trek full wall mural is about as close as most of us will ever get to the Enterprise bridge; warp core and captain’s chair not included.

Star Trek: DAC Screens

Star Trek: DAC Screens

We still don’t know what the acronym stands for, but Star Trek: DAC at least has several new tantalizing gameplay screens for us to chew on; do we detect the faint aroma of Netrek?

Family Guy: TNG

Family Guy: TNG

Last night’s Family Guy almost overloaded our plasma conduits; Stewie abducts the entire cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation from a convention and takes them … bowling.

Frakking awesome: we’re digging the hot gradient line art on black stylings of this Space Junk! Tee, which is packed with references to Star Wars, Star Trek, 2001 and BSG.

Come to think of it, that Sham Wow dude always did look a little out of this world: this Vince Vulcan tee mashes up our favorite pointy eared freaks with absorbent German towels.

Trailer #3: Star Trek

Trailer #3: Star Trek

Previously debuted at WonderCon (and today for Watchmen), the latest Trek trailer is fantastic; it lends real gravitas to the movie, elevating it from intergalactic joyride to a bonafide “star trek.”

Star Trek Colognes

Star Trek Colognes

We’ve never had any desire to smell like Kirk, but these Star Trek Colognes by Genki Wear are ideal gifts for uber Trekkies; Red Shirt is the best: “Because tomorrow may never come.”

While it may not encompass every plot (ask a Trekkie), we think this DIY Star Trek story chart is as effective a dilithium-powered plot generator as any you’ll find in the Alpha Quadrant.

USA Today has a first look at new toys from the upcoming Star Trek movie, including action figures, gadgets and our favorite: a replica of the Enterprise bridge; they’ll be available 4/19.

Spaceship Comparison

Spaceship Comparison

A combined Star Wars, Star Trek and Babylon 5 battle would a sci-fi geekfest of epic proportions; until then, this comparison of spacecraft sizes is a fitting stand-in. Thanks, Kenneth!
