Fan uses AI to remaster ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’ in HD

Unfortunately, you're highly unlikely to see an official remaster of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Its special effects were shot on video rather than added to film, making an already daunting remastering process that much more difficult -- and since i...

Captain Kirk Crew Socks: Sockship Enterprise

James T. Kirk has commanded several versions of the Starship Enterprise, now let him command your feet. Beam these Captain Kirk crew socks onto your feet today. Your sock drawer needs a tough, no-nonsense leader to keep the rest of your socks in line. Kirk is comfortable on your feet and he knows how to handle first contact with the ground and every contact after.

Captain Kirk socks are especially good if your feet have corns Gorns, because he knows how to take care of those too. I like how they have his arms at the side as he clenches his fist like he is going to punch his way out of your shoes. These socks will surely get you the ladies. Green ladies, blue ladies with antenna, tribble ladies, ladies with beaks, ladies with ridged heads, and so much more.

These officially-licensed Star Trek socks are one size fits most (up to men’s size 12). They’ll get you through life’s challenges like the Kobayashi Maru, Tholian webs, aliens turning into piles of salt, and having to sit through Spock playing alien musical instruments.

Other than the Spock socks, these are the best socks ever. They belong in your crew quarters, and on your feet. Grab a pair today at ThinkGeek for $9.99.

Tiny Star Trek TOS Captain’s Chair Replica Is Ready for Command

What do Captain Kirk’s butt and tribbles have in common? No not that. Get your head out of the gutter. The answer is that both have spent time on the starship Enterprise’s Captain’s chair. That chair is an iconic piece of sci-fi and now you can own a scaled-down replica that looks just like the real thing.

QMx’s 1:6 scale replica of Captain Kirk’s favorite chair looks sweet. It not only swivels like the real deal, but it also plays sounds and has light-up controls. This replica is extremely well detailed. It’s perfect for your 1:6 scale action figures. Well, Kirk anyway. You wouldn’t put anyone else on it. Except for Scotty when the Captain’s away on a mission.

This is the best replica of this chair I’ve seen. It has four different light and sound settings including standard bridge operations, ship-wide announcement, viewscreen scanning, and red alert. It stands 8″ tall so it’s great for your office desk, and is powered by either three AA batteries or a mini-USB plug (not included).

Grab one today from ThinkGeek for $99.99. It’s a great tribute to the days when Star Trek was truly an action-packed western set in space. They don’t make them like James T. Kirk anymore. And this is his seat.

These Star Trek Spock Socks Have Vulcan Ears

These Star Trek Spock Socks are completely logical. Allow me to channel my inner Dr. Seuss. Spock socks shock. They also rock. Whether on the outer rim or in dry dock. Be one of the flock and dress in Spock. It’s the fashion around the clock. Do you grok?

Okay, I make a terrible Dr. Seuss. Because I ran out of juice. My rhymes like a noose. Anyway, enough of that nonsense. I see you raising a Vulcan eyebrow.

So these Spock Socks have ears sticking out of their sides, which may not be very practical if you wear pants or boots since they’ll get in the way, but if you wear these with some Starfleet shorts and a uniform top you’ll be alright. I’m sure you won’t get any weird looks at all.

These bad boys are the logical way to keep your feet warm. They’re made of 80% Acrylic/17% Nylon/3% Spandex and 100% awesome. I feel like they are bound to follow this up with Romulan and a Ferengi versions. I can’t wait to wear Quark on my feet with his big Dumbo ears. I’d pay good Latinum for that.

You Might Actually Wear These Star Trek Hoodies Every Day

I love many of the Star Trek clothing items that are based on Starfleet uniforms, but most of them are a little too over the top to wear on a daily basis. That’s why I am really digging these hoodies right here. They’re good-looking, quality made, and a bit more down to Earth compared to the average Star Trek garb, while still allowing you to fly your geek flag high.

They are black but with the accent color of your favorite Starfleet division and the Delta logo embroidered on the chest. Wear them with pride. They may not have a phaser or tricorder holster built into them, but they do have a hidden opening for earphone cords in the pocket as well as earphone loops inside.

These hoodies are so understated that you can finally show off your love for Star Trek without going full nerd at warp speed. They only cost about $28 each from BadWolfClothingUK’s Etsy shop. You better order yours now, because I think they will go quickly.

These are just so good looking. They are exactly what I want in a Star Trek hoodie. I may just buy both Command and Engineering. Science is for green-blooded Vulcans only.

Star Trek Captain’s Tea Set Is Perfect for Starfleet Tea Parties

The next time you want your “Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.” you may want to serve it in this awesome Star Trek Captain’s Tea Set. Who said that tea parties were just for little girls? You calling  Jean-Luc a little girl? Invite your favorite Klingons, Romulans, and Vulcans. It’s tea time in the 24th century.

A tea party is a great way to bond with your crew. Get to know that lovable android, your first officer, and even that bratty Wesley kid over a nice cup of tea. You can even invite your Klingon security officer if you think he can be trusted to handle delicate ceramics.

This is so cool that you may have to change your ship’s name to 1701-T. Fire up that Earl Grey in the replicator and gather the crew. It’s totally tea-time in ten-forward. Try saying that a bunch of times really fast.

So take an away party over to ThinkGeek now, and order yours for $59.99.

Star Trek Gets Trouble with”Too Many Tribbles” Little Golden Book

When I was a kid, nine out of ten times my mom wouldn’t let me buy a toy when we were out shopping, she would let me get a book. So, I had a legion of Little Golden Books around my house. Star Trek fans with kids will want to be ready to pick up the Too Many Tribbles! Little Golden Book when it arrives next year.

There have been other Star Trek Little Golden Books before; this one was inspired by the classic “The Trouble With Tribbles” episode of the original Star Trek series, and is sure to be packed with the troublesome little fuzzballs. The book was written by Frank Berrios, and illustrated by Ethen Beavers.

The synopsis reads: “Captain Kirk and the crew of the starship Enterprise come face to face with adorably fuzzy Tribbles in this exciting and fun-filled Star Trek Little Golden Book!

Captain Kirk and the crew of the Starship Enterprise are ready for almost anything–except tribbles! When these small, furry creatures invade the ship, Captain Kirk and the crew must act quickly, before they are buried in fur balls! Star Trek fans of all ages will love this action-packed Little Golden Book featuring Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, and the rest of the crew from the classic TV series in a unique retro art style!”

Sounds like a fun, tribble-filled adventure for the kids. You can pre-order a copy of Too Many Tribbles! on Amazon for just $4.99 now, and it’ll show up as a pleasant surprise in July 2019 when you’ve completely forgotten you ordered it.

Star Trek: TNG Uniform Denim Jackets: The Denim Generation

If you want to dress like the crew of the USS Enterprise, then make it so (or is it “make it sew?”) These officially-licensed Starfleet 2364 heavy denim jackets are available from Volante Design’s Superhuman Streetwear collection. I have to admit they look pretty awesome. They’re definitely better than those spandex ones from the early Next Generation days.

Denim is what everyone is wearing in the future. Everyone knows that. You can get them in both men’s and women’s sizes in Command Red, Operations Gold, and Sciences Blue. Each one features an asymmetrical zipper, two snap closure external pockets, and an internal pocket.

Just be prepared to pay a hefty fee for that future look. They sell for $315 each. Are Ferengi merchants selling these at a Klingon flea market on Deep Space Nine? I could probably get enrolled in Starfleet for that price. Actually, money doesn’t really exist in Starfleet, so they should be giving these out for free. So much for your utopia, Gene Roddenberry.

They do look good though. Better than the ones on any of the shows to be honest. This should be the uniform choice for any new Star Trek series.

Star Trek Starfleet Dish Set: Food… The Final Frontier

Fire up the replicator this Thanksgiving and invite all of your friends and family to eat from this classy Star Trek Dinner Set. Of course, you should get several sets so everyone can eat off them. These pieces have a gold Starfleet insignia on them and would look at home both in a starship mess hall and in your very own home.

The set includes one dinner plate, dessert plate, bowl, and a mug for your Earl Grey tea or Romulan ale. Speaking of Star Trek and Thanksgiving, where the hell is my replicator technology? The damn turkey takes hours and hours to make. When do I get a turkey that appears out of thin air? I’m waiting. That would make things a whole lot easier.

Anyway, This is the classy way for geeks to eat their meals. Remember the wise words of Khan. “Revenge is a dish best served cold, but it doesn’t have to be. Just heat the damn thing up and serve it on a Star Trek plate!” Okay, I may have added that last part, but it’s true.

Kirk and Spock used these or something similar in Star Trek VI, I believe – or maybe they’re the plates they used when they opened that restaurant on the Enterprise…
