    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 →

    Ever dreamed of sitting on the can next to a shower curtain that looks like the original transporter room from Star Trek? Well you're in luck, because this $50 shower curtain and bathmat set from ThinkGeek does just that. You know what would make it even cooler? If the curta... / 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 →

    This is the giant Captain Picard quilt sewn by Candy Coated Quilts (those sound sticky). Can you think of anything better than waking up to the giant face of Captain Picard staring back at you? "Tons of things." Well sure, but it still beats the hell out of a dog or cat's @$... / Continue →

    This is the conceptual Pokeball engagement ring designed by jeweler Arts & Gems (of TARDIS engagement ring fame). I'm pretty sure if you're interested they'll make one for you. I'm also pretty sure the guy who lives upstairs died or went on vacation because he's a stomper and... / Continue →

    Captain Kirk: William Shatner/Chris Pine This is a series of old and new Star Trek character faces morphed together by deviantARTist ThatNordicGuy (no not the one swinging the battle axe -- the one hunched over his computer in the dark!). So, if you've ever dreamed of what it ... / Continue →

    This is a video from a British shopping mall of a bunch of people losing their minds after watching someone climb into a Star Trek teleporter and magically get beamed a couple stores away. The stunt was organized by movie streaming service Blinkbox (of Game of Thrones dragon s... / Continue →

    Thanks to the marvel of pause buttons, this is a screenshot from around the 1-hour 17-minute mark of 'Star Trek Into Darkness' featuring everybody's favorite astromech droid being sucked out of the Enterprise (previously: R2-D2 spotted in the other most recent Star Trek film). ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Chappo the dog howling in excitement at the opening theme to Star Trek: The Final Frontier. You know, my family dog growing up used to go buck wild whenever she heard a song with whistling in it. Then she'd look at me like I was stupid for expecting her to ... / Continue →
