Star Trek has, as we do now, a predilection for pets. Spock had I-Chaya, Archer had Porthos, and Data had Spot. Many of our characters own pets, just as us writers celebrate the furry companions in our lives. So, how can we further integrate our shared passion for pets and for Star Trek? Why, by turning to Star Trek themed pet accessories, of course! Here is a list of some of the more interesting finds out there.
Do you ever have trouble wondering what to get that special man in your life? Sometimes it can be difficult. However, if your man is a Trekkie, there are some items out there that may appeal. Here are Alora’s Top Ten Picks – For Him! Note: Some of these may also appeal to women, but I’m going from the angle of what might appeal to my man if he was a Trekkie. 😉
Picard is perhaps one of the favourite of the Star Trek Captains and every Trekkie knows exactly how he has his tea – Earl Grey, Hot. Now your man can have his in the same way and, perhaps, get a feel of what it’s like to be the Captain – if only for the time it takes to finish the mug.
9. Star Trek Socks –
No uniform is complete without the socks. Or maybe your man wants to show off his geekiness in the office without being too obvious. Either way, these socks are a styling way to put a little Star Trek in your work day.
8. Star Trek Picard Tie –
This would be the perfect addition to those socks as mentioned previously. Even better, this is a little more obvious but still subtle enough to be appropriate for any work environment. Now you can be the boss and say ‘Make it so’ in the office to your heart’s delight.
Yes, we’re a little ‘outfit’ heavy here, but that’s all right. If you’re in a particularly hard core environment where little examples of your Star Trek pride are appreciated, you can still get your geek on without anyone knowing!
After a long day at work, some guys just like to come home and chug back a cold one. Now you can open that bottle and imagine you’re on the enterprise with this one of a kind bottle opener. The disk even separates and talks to you as you pop open that brewsky!
My husband isn’t a fan of bulky wallets, and while he doesn’t generally use a money clip for money, he often carries around index cards which he keeps clipped together. Either way, this little beauty is a great way to keep that money – or those cards – all together.
Sometimes the day is long and hard enough to require something a little stronger than just beer. That’s where these come in. Sit yourself down with a little something to keep you warm during the cold, winter nights.
This is another stylish way to show your Trekkie side. This gorgeous watch will make heads turn just by the beauty of it. And if you aren’t a fan of the Enterprise, there’s also one depicting the Delta Shield.
My father in law has really been enjoying his bicycle when it’s not below freezing and snowing. This jersey can be enjoyed by your favourite cyclist too and help him stand out among all those other look alikes traveling down the road. You have to admit, it’s pretty stylin’.
I know, I know, cufflinks? Number one on the top picks? Yeah, I didn’t expect that either – until I saw these little beauties. These aren’t your normal cufflinks – they’re shaped like miniature TOS communicators. They are so ‘realistic’ that they even flip open to reveal actual buttons. Beam me up Scotty!
So that’s it for Alora’s Top Picks for Him. Next time, we’ll visit the Top Picks for Her, so stay tuned!
When last we left our Top Picks, we had explored my favourite choices for our Trekkie babies. Babies, however, get older and outgrow all those neat outfits, gadgets, and doodads. There’s a lot out there though for our older children, and many of the items are probably expected by fans of the franchise. However, while I have included a couple of more common items, I managed to find some neat ones that most might not realise exist. So, without further ado, Alora’s top picks for Trekkie items for kids.
Fans of Star Trek have never had any qualms of showing their love for the series and its subsequent movies. We, as members of Starbase 118, show our love for the genre by roleplaying in the world created by Gene Roddenberry. Of course, our children will also grow up with the love for Star Trek, right?
