With Star Trek BORG Cube PC, Your Assimilation With PC Will Be Complete

Fans of Star Trek will be familiar with the recurring antagonist, an alien group known as Borg. The Borg you see here is not as sinister as the alien beings who forcefully make their captives assimilate. In fact, I think it is the opposite. However, if using a computer for work and entertainment, including gaming, are viewed as sins, then The Borg Cube PC might very well be evil. But who the hell cares? Seriously, a PC in the likeness of the Borg cube? Well, I’d say shut up and take my money! There are two versions of The Borg Cube PC: a 6-inch cube (herein known as The Borg Micro Cube) designed for productivity and entertainment (you know, surfing the Internet, watching movies and whatnot) and a larger 12-inch version (known as The Borg VR Cube) rigged for gaming.

Star Trek Shuttlecraft Car Is A Minivan Mod That Makes Sense

Modding minivan, AKA MPV, is borderline waste of time (OK. IT IS a waste of time). I mean, seriously, what can one get out of it? Speed? With so many people in it? However, if you are thinking of turning a minivan into a BatVan, or a Goddard, a Federation Type 6 Shuttlecraft straight out of Star Trek: The Next Generation you see here, then that’s a different story. In fact, if you are hell bent of making a statement with your mundane van, those are the only two mods you should consider. Period. The Star Trek Shuttlecraft Car was from a few years ago (as far back as 2014). Continue reading Star Trek Shuttlecraft Car Is A Minivan Mod That Makes Sense

Awesome Star Trek Enterprise Rocker Up The Realism With Federation Gray

Remember the awesome Star Trek Enterprise children’s rocking toy? Well, if the natural wood finish did not quite convince junior that he/she is at the helm of one of the best star fleet there’s in the universe (fictional one, of course), then perhaps, this latest iteration with a lot more detailing and in a fresh coat of Federation Gray should bump up the realism by a few notches.

Star Trek Enterprise 3D Deco Lamp Puts Realistic ‘Hologram’ In Your Home

Sci-fi books and films have opened our eyes to many drool worthy future tech. Sadly, not every one of those fantasy tech becomes a reality. Hologram is one of them. The hologram here we are referring to is real projection of a 3D object in wireframe or similar, not the sticker kind of hologram you in toys, or those projected inside a glass block. Star Trek Automated Repair Station, for example, had one and now, even though consumer hologram isn’t available to you, you can have one in your room, on your bedside table too. And the object that will replicate the hologram projection look is this Disco Star Trek USS Enterprise 3D Deco Lamp.

Original Star Trek Starship Enterprise TV Show Model Restored At SNASM

Star Trek Starship Enterprise maybe a fictional spaceship but it was product of creative imagination of movie makers and a mark of mankind’s desire for deep space exploration, which makes the original starship Enterprise model worthy of a place in the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum. And museum it did head to in 1974 when it was donated to by Paramount Pictures to SNASM. The 11-foot, 200 lbs blow-molded plastic and wood model was displayed in several locations in the museum until 2014, when it was removed for a lengthy and painstaking two-year restoration. Though it is worthy to note that the model was “treated” three times, in 1974, 1984 and 1991, while in museum’s possession, but this was by far, the most extensive one.
