    This is the Star Trek Borg Cube Fridge available from ThinkGeek ($150). It can hold nine cans of soda plus a little extra and glows green inside and out. Nine cans of soda isn't that many, but the thing is only a foot square so it doesn't take up a lot of room either. You kn... / Continue →

    Pixeltrek is an in-browser maze game in which you play as Data trying to navigate all the decks of USS Enterprise. This screenshot is from me trying to spy on some blue alien in the shitter off the main bridge. It's a great time-waster, and since it's a holiday weekend comin... / Continue →

    What's that, Lassie? Timmy got beamed back with his penis for an arm?! This is the Star Trek Captain's Chair Pet Bed available from ThinkGeek ($80). It's a dog bed that looks like the captain's chair from Star Trek. But way plusher. I slept in a dog's bed once when I got d... / Continue →

    So somebody realized the 2014 World Cup Brazil logo looks like a facepalming Captain Picard. You think the person who designed it was inspired by The Next Generation? That answer is no unless you're a crazy person. Come on, I believe in gnomes and fairies and even I can reco... / Continue →

    This is a very short video of the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation pretending the Enterprise is traveling through a shockwave, but without any camera effects. They look silly -- especially Riker. "Just pretend you're riding a mechanical bull made for children," I imagin... / Continue →

    Then I went crazy and stabbed him! This is a video of Wil Wheaton at a panel during Denver Comic Con answering a little girl's question of how to respond to being called a nerd (SPOILER: it's not you, it's them -- they are sad). Personally, you can call me a nerd all day long... / Continue →

    Meet Warnog, an officially licensed Star Trek beer. It's a 'Roggen Dunkel' (dark rye) style beer with "notes of clove, banana and caramel." Those are not notes I generally like in my beer. Call me old fashioned (or a redneck), but I only like two notes in my beer: cheap, and... / Continue →

    This is the USS Enterprise ring designed by PaulMichaelDesign (of Triforce, Pokeball, Wonder Woman tiara and Nintendo controller ring fame). $595 gets you a sterling silver and topaz Enterprise, but you can have it customized all the way up to $3,895 for a platinum and diamond... / Continue →

    These are Hero-Glyphics, a series of drawings by artist Josh Lane featuring modern heroes in ancient hieroglyphic scrolls. Doesn't make a lot of sense to me, but not much does anymore. And guess what -- I'm tired of looking for answers. You know what happens when you dig dow... / Continue →

    Line Raineville grew up watching the original Star Trek series. So what did she do when she got older? Buy the Blu-Ray special edition and call it a day? NOPE, she spent over $30,000 converting her basement into the original USS Enterprise. So, you think any man has boldly ... / Continue →

    David Waddell resigned from his post on the Indian Trail Town Council last Thursday by penning a letter written entirely in Klingon. How anybody was able to read it to know he was resigning is beyond me. Waddell says he opted to use Klingon, the language of a warrior race o... / Continue →

    This is the Wreath of Khan made by Annie Shapiro. Man, that Ricardo Montalbán -- he was a handsome dude. Remember Fantasy Island? My fantasy was always to go be seduced by Mr. Roarke. "What about Tattoo?" He could ride around on my shoulders until things started to get too... / Continue →

    These are the Star Trek family car decals available from ThinkGeek. $15 gets you a page containing 32 stickers of 23 unique characters. How would you represent your family? I'd represent mine with a Vulcan. "And?" And that's it, just me the Vulcan. "Don't you have pets?" ... / Continue →

    These are Spock socks. Allegedly they're a real, officially licensed product, but I'm always skeptical when the only picture available is a rendering and not an actual photo. Is it because they don't exist or because they look even shittier in real life? I wore socks with sa... / Continue →

    This is a short video of clips from Star Trek: The Next Generation edited together so the cast sings 'Let It Snow' (technically, 'Make It So'). At least that's what the first half of the video is. The second half is the guy who edited it talking about a video game he's develo... / Continue →

    Eau My is a real fragrance from George Takei being released on December 15th, just in time to fill stockings this Christmas then be regifted to the first person with a birthday in 2014. Apparently it's a scent for both men and women. That's convenient. What's it smell like? ... / Continue →

    This is the sleeveless Star Trek muscle shirt available for $27 from Look Human. Honestly, I would have a really hard time paying $27 for a shirt that doesn't even have sleeves. Also, I'm not really sure what the message is even supposed to mean. Are Klingons notoriously kinky... / Continue →

    This is a parody of Rick Astley's 'Never Gonna Give You Up' loosely translated into Klingon and performed in the style of really shitty karaoke. It boggles my mind people actually take the time to do stuff like this but won't take the time to walk their grocery cart to one of ... / Continue →
