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.

Star Trek Risk 50th Anniversary Edition Lets The Captains Vie For The Stars

Trekkies, who do you think is the best Starfleet commander? Captain Kirk? Jean-Luc Picard? Benjamin Sisko? Kathryn Janeway? Or maybe Jonathan Archer? Instead of going on an endless and possibly heated debate over who’s the best, perhaps, you folks would like to let the board decides and by board, we do mean Risk: Star Trek 50th Anniversary Edition Board Game. Released in celebration of five decades of Star Trek (since the original series, that is), this classic strategy board game gone into a grander scale – by going galactic where, instead of maps, it has stars and more stars, divided into Alpha and Beta quadrants, ready for the various Captains to vie it out. So who would triumph and conquer more stars? I don’t know. You tell me. Continue reading Star Trek Risk 50th Anniversary Edition Lets The Captains Vie For The Stars

Mr. Spock Leaning On 64’ Buick Riviera Recreated In Diecast For Comic-Con

Outside of the television series, the one photo that shows actor Leonard Nimoy, who played Mr. Spock on Star Trek The Original Series, in his Star Trek costume, leaning on his spanking new 64’ Buick Riviera is perhaps the most recognizable. The car was acquired by Leonard to celebrate the success of the Star Trek TV series and the photo was taken at the studio’s backlot. Now, thanks to Hot Wheels, this iconic photo is going to be immortalized in 3D. Hot Wheels has recreated the scene with the die-cast 64′ Buick Riviera and a miniature Mr. Spock in the exact same pose and it will be making it available at this year’s San Diego Comic Convention. Continue reading Mr. Spock Leaning On 64’ Buick Riviera Recreated In Diecast For Comic-Con

Mattel Celebrates 50 Years Of Star Trek With New Star Trek Barbie Dolls

50 years. That’s how long since the first Star Trek series hit the tube on NBC and it forever changed how we see sci-fi and beam me up, Scotty becomes an acceptable expression.

In celebration of the franchise’s 50 years, toy maker Mattel, the name behind Barbie, will be releasing a new line of Barbie dolls based on Star Trek the original series – two decades after it first did in 1996 on the franchise’s 30th anniversary.

Trekkie Reimagined Star Trek Shuttlecraft Into A Camping Tent

What are the odds of Trekkies who are willing to forgo the creature comfort of technology for the wild? We’d say the odds are really, really low (unless you are on an imaginary mission to Planet Earth), but in case there’s a side of you that begs to be in the great outdoor, then I supposed a camping tent inspired by the Star Trek Federation Shuttlecraft would appeal to the Trekkie in you. Conceptualized by artist and fellow trekkie Dave Delisle, the Star Trek Shuttlecraft Tent Concept is a 2-man tent that features an entrance at the back – just like the actual shuttlecraft, and boasts a plastic carrying case that splits apart to double as the “thrusters” on the side of the craft.
