  • Any golf-playing Trekkies out there? Here's your putter


    Now I’ve officially seen it all. The Golfsmith Star Trek Enterprise NCC-1701 costs $130 and there are only 1701 available, which is probably 1700 more than there are golfers who are big enough Star Trek fans to buy this and use it on the course. It actually looks like a decent putter thanks to the weight-balancing warp speed tube thingies. Maybe I’ll pick one up someday, if only… Read More

  • Dork Sells Star-Trek Themed Pad For Mucho Loot

    Face it. Loving Star Trek is about as dorky as a dork can get. But one Star Trek fan had the last laugh when he sold his one bedroom flat for more than five times the market value. Tony Alleyne sold his home that he transformed into the deck of the starship Voyager for a staggering $843,242 or £425,000. As you would imagine, transforming your bachelor pad into a flight deck is not an easy… Read More

  • Downloaded Star Trek Off iTMS? Claim Your $25

    Because I actually have a life playing with my Polly Pocket playsets (TOO fun!), I didn’t notice that Star Trek: The Original Series had gone up on the iTunes Music Store, been taken down, and then put back up. For anyone who bought the entire first series before it was taken down, Apple is hooking you up. You’ll be rewarded with a $25 iTunes gift card code and you can keep… Read More

  • Real Life Star Trek Tricorder Developed

    Star Trek fans (sorry, I’m not one of ‘em) should thank Purdue University researchers for developing a real life tricorder, the famous little device that analyzed and identified unknown substances. The device identifies substances based on their mass with the use of something called an ion tap. After putting the object inside, the device lets an item’s ions out one by one… Read More

  • Star Trek Light Dimmer

    Tired of sleeping with women? Try the Star Trek Light Dimmer! This $40 device connects to your light switch and allows you to say “Computer, Disengage Lights” and it will comply by turning off the lights. I mean it’s sort of a computer, right? It’s binary? The dimmer even replies in the voice of Majel Roddenberry, Gene’s wife, to ensure that your lonely nights can… Read More

  • How to Make a Star Trek On/Off Switch

    Since our wives won’t approve outfitting our living room like the bridge of the Enterprise and our bedrooms like Counselor Troi’s quarters, all we have left is making our light switches like the panels on TNG (The Next Generation for you non-trekkers). Axe-man has a complete guide for making your switches into something even Patrick Stewart would be proud of. And he’s seen… Read More

  • Cingular 3125 Hands-On

    We got a chance to look at the Cingular 3125 yesterday AKA the HTC Star Trek and were pretty impressed. The phone is amazingly thin in real life, a bit thicker than a RAZR – we should create a whole new phone measurement system using the RAZR (1.5 RAZRs thick) – and the Windows OS looked quite snug on the 8125’s bright screen.

  • Cingular Releases, Unreleases HTC Star Trek (3125)

    For a brief bit this morning, Cingular had the HTC Star Trek up on their site as the 3125. The phone has a 1.3 megapixel camera, 200MHz TI OMAP processor, and runs Windows Mobile 5.0. It’s a clamshell form factor phone, with RAZR-ish design cues. Unfortunately this means no QWERTY keyboard for you to type on, but that comes with the territory. The price was $149.99 with two-year… Read More
