Product News February 2017
During February 2017, we covered a ton of Star Trek and geek-related products. However, we might have elided over them a little too quickly, or maybe you didn’t get a chance to see the pictures?
Yet you need not worry. Because we have got you covered.
So the range of products is truly dizzying. And these are just a handful!
February 2017 Jewelry and Novelties
First of all, we were so pleased to see badges for Star Trek Beyond! And you can choose Command, Science, or Operations. Furthermore, each badge is cast in zinc alloy with bronze hues. However, I don’t know if Communications or Medical will get separate badges.
Also, we liked this nifty Kataan Probe Pendant! Retailing for $90 and exclusively from Roddenberry.com, this replica of the prop is made to scale, and faithfully pays tribute to the beloved TNG episode, The Inner Light.
February 2017 Apparel
In addition, you can head on over to a different kind of universe for your casual wear! And if you need to assert your Terran superiority at the gym, why not do it with this Star Trek Mirror, Mirror Men’s T-Shirt? Discounted at $4.97, the shirt comes in small, medium, and large. However, this is the only color, and some of the negative reviews specifically point out the yellow on white design (it does seem to be an odd artistic choice). Apparently, it also runs small.
However, the ladies get a better choice with their own Star Trek Mirror, Mirror Women’s T-Shirt. Also discounted to $4.97, the shirt runs in sizes small to XL. And as before, pay attention to the reviews. Because the negative reviews also say the shirt runs small, and apparently the design could stand to be a lot more durable.
So the Klingons got into the apparel act! First of all, check out the Star Trek Klingon May you die well t-shirt. Offered in sizes S – XXL, the shirt retails for $24.95. Only seems to come in black.
And next up we have the Star Trek Klingon To Really Succeed You must enjoy eating Poison t-shirt. Again, offered in sizes S – XXL, the shirt retails for $24.95. Only seems to come in black.
And then we found the Star Trek Klingon Stop Talking Drink T-Shirt. Yet again, offered in sizes S – XXL, the shirt retails for $24.95. Only seems to come in black.
Finally, we found the Star Trek Klingon Honor Is More Important than life t-shirt. Again, as expected, offered in sizes S – XXL, the shirt retails for $24.95. Only seems to come in black.
Also, on the Federation side, we found the Star Trek Starfleet Recruitment Poster Hoodie, and the same design in tee shirt form. And both run in sizes S to XXL. The hoodie comes in navy and retails for $49.95, whereas the tee comes in what seems to be a darker blue but is also referred to as navy and retails for $24.95.
Furthermore, getting back to a little more optimism, we found the Star Trek Enterprise Patch Hoodie and T-Shirt. And just like the recruitment poster hoodie and tee, both run in sizes S to XXL. The hoodie comes in navy and retails for $49.95, whereas the tee comes in what seems to be a darker blue but is also referred to as navy and retails for $24.95.
Finally, for the Military Assault Command soldier in your life, there’s the Star Trek Enterprise MACO T-Shirt. Offered in sizes S – XXL, the shirt retails for $24.95. Only seems to come in athletic heather.
February 2017 Books
Furthermore, Eaglemoss offers the Star Trek: The Graphic Novel Collection – Issues 1 to 3. Since the offer defaults to Eaglemoss’s British site, prices are in pounds. A classic subscription retails for £18.97 for the first three issues, whereas a premium subscription retails for £20.97. And you also get four Star Trek hardback photonovels with the premium subscription.
February 2017 Food and Drink
Because redshirts cannot live by bread alone, check out this new beer. Halifax’s Garrison Brewing releases new Star Trek-themed beer “worth dying for”. However, you’ll have to head to Canada to taste Red Shirt Ale.
Also, Star Trek Klingon Imperial Porter Beams Down in 2017! So Shmaltz Brewing has done it again!
- Enjoy Star Trek Klingon Imperial Porter at the following events across the country:
March 2: Klingon Hop Orgy Party @ The Factory Eatery, Ballston Spa, NY
May 1: Star Trek Bowling @ The Comet Pub & Lanes, Decatur, GA
More events will be taking place in the near future.
February 2017 Housewares
Furthermore, you need something to drink your new Red Shirt Ale out of, am I right?
So why not quench your thirst in style with this Star Trek Starfleet Academy Schools Collection Pint Glass Set. In addition, this set of four is discounted to $34.95. And the StarTrek.com shop is currently sold out, so be sure to have them email you when they get more in stock.
Also, you can snuggle up with this Star Trek Klingon Empire Woven Throw. Retails for $49.95 and comes in grey/black.
February 2017 Models, Action Figures, Collectibles, Figurines, and Games
Since we always like a good model, we were glad to see that the official Starships Collection Shuttles have taken flight! And, OMG, it includes Shuttlepod One from Enterprise. Eaglemoss offers for sale two separate collections. So the first retails for $99.95. It features the Galileo from the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701; the Type-6 shuttle from the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D; the Type-10 shuttle from the U.S.S. Defiant NX-74205; and the Type-9 shuttle from the U.S.S. Voyager NCC-74656. And the second is available for preorder and was reduced from $100 to $85. It features the Executive Shuttle from Earth Spacedock; the Type-7 shuttle from the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D; the Type-15 shuttle from the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D; and the NX Shuttle POD from the Enterprise NX-01.
So this March, WizKids/NECA will release Star Trek: Attack Wing Wave 29, and we have two bits of information on that. First of all, we saw the Bioship Alpha (Repaint).
And second, we saw that Sulu Excelsior is back in action.
However, I do not have a price for these yet.

And finally, 3Doodler announces a Star Trek-themed pen. The Star Trek branded device, which will be available, fittingly through ThinkGeek, will come with plans for drawing some Original Series designs, like the Enterprise, Spock ears and a phaser. However, I don’t have an image yet, so please stay tuned!
Finally, every month (and not just February 2017), we aim to bring you the most exciting, innovative, and practical or just plain mind-boggling Star Trek-related products out there. And we thank you for reading!
