Product News Roundup October 2017
In October 2017, we covered a bevy of Star Trek and geek-related products. However, we may have gone 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 just exceptional. And these are just a handful! Star Trek Discovery in particular is being celebrated, plus there was great TNG merchandise, too.
October 2017 Apparel
First of all, there was yet another influx of apparel, mainly from Discovery. So let’s start with ANOVOS.
So both the Trek Collective and StarTrek.com reported on new Discovery uniforms coming from ANOVOS. Available for preorder, and expected in 2019, these unis are coming out in the summer of 2018. Plus they come in sizes S – XXL and cost $500.00. However, you can currently pre order them for $425.00 at ANOVOS.
In addition, for more modest budgets, we saw tees with both long and short sleeves, and hoodies.
StarTrek.com offers several hoodies. First of all, the Star Trek Discovery Starfleet Hoodie and the Star Trek Discovery Starfleet Zip Hoodie both retail for $49.95 and come in Navy, slim fit, sizes S – XXL.
In addition, they offer the Star Trek Discovery Starfleet Command Zip Hoodie and the Star Trek Discovery Klingon Pullover Hoodie , which have the same details as to color, sizes, and price, except the Klingon hoodie comes in black.
Plus StarTrek.com offers a pair of long-sleeved tees. The Star Trek Discovery Command Uniform Costume Long Sleeve T-Shirt and the Star Trek Discovery Command Uniform Costume Long Sleeve T-Shirt both retail for $46.95 and come in sizes S – XXXL.
More Discovery Apparel
StarTrek.com is also selling the Star Trek Discovery T’Kuvma T-Shirt and the Star Trek Discovery Burnham T-Shirt -for $24.95 in sizes S – XXXL, slim fit. The T’Kuvma shirt is in black or white; the Burnham shirt is in black only.
Plus they offer the Star Trek Discovery Voq T-Shirt and the Star Trek Discovery Comic Delta T-Shirt. Voq comes in black or white and retails for $24.95 in sizes S – XXXL, slim fit; the delta tee comes in black only, same sizes. However, it retails for $26.95.
In addition, from StarTrek.com, there’s the ever-dreamy Captain Lorca tee shirt. So it retails for $24.95 and comes in black or white, sizes S – XXL. Except we have no idea whatsoever why his tee shirt has a saying from Benjamin Sisko on it. So if you’re listening out there, license holders – how about a Captain Lorca tee shirt with his expression, “Context is for kings?” Just sayin’.
Even More Discovery Apparel
Plus we also caught wind of some terrific Pride tee shirts! We found Discovery Pride Embossed tee shirts in both men‘s and women‘s sizes, S – XXL (women’s is slim fit so order a size up), priced at $24.95. There is a second product number for both women‘s and men‘s pride tees, but I’ll be damned if I can figure out the difference between those and the first pair, which are pictured, below.
October 2017 Jewelry
Furthermore, we saw great pins. So The Trek Collective and StarTrek.com both reported on the new Discovery pin set which will have pins based on every episode. In addition, sets shipping domestically to the United States cost $200 plus $25 shipping/handling, which includes shipping for both the first and second sets. However, sets shipping internationally (anywhere in the world outside the United States) are $200 plus $50 shipping/handling, and that also includes shipping for both the first and second sets.

Plus StarTrek.com reports FanSets Unveils NYCC-Exclusive Discovery Pin for $15 and StarTrek.com is selling the Star Trek The Next Generation 30th Anniversary Pin [Standard Pin] for $12.95.

October 2017 Models
Since we know you love models, we’ve got these beauties. First of all, the Trek Collective reported on Starships Collection updates: More Discovery ships, main series extended again, Spacedock, & videos. And they also reported on Ship bits: Eaglemoss concept Ambassador class, Fansets Discovery pin, & Mark Rademaker art.

However, because the year is drawing to a close, we also saw calendars! ThinkGeek has three: the exclusive 2018 Star Trek Cats Wall Calendar and the 2018 Star Trek Ships of the Line Wall Calendar to start. Both retail for $14.99.
And they also have 2018 Star Trek Posters Wall Calendars, retailing for $19.99 apiece.
Or you might prefer to Trek-ify your beverages and up your drinking game with the Star Trek The Next Generation Geeki Tikis from ThinkGeek. They retail for $14.99 apiece or $79.99 for a set of six.
October 2017 Grab Bag
