Cleveland-based Leah Likes has created Texts from Star Trek: The Next Generation, a Tumblr that artfully takes screenshots from the cult series out of context by mashing them up with the often alcohol-fueled Texts from Last Night. Nice!

The Beam Me Up: Star Trek Art Show recently took place in Los Angeles, where over 80 artists took a stab at the sci-fi series in tribute to it. The exhibition has since ended, but the artworks are still viewable — and for sale — online. Obviously we just got distracted by all things Spock. […]

We think this picture says a lot more about the dog owner than the dog. Whoever owns this dog must be a pretty dedicated Star Trek fan, and it’s likely that they enjoy a nice beer every now and then as well. Whatever the case, this pup sure looks thrilled to be dressed as the […]

Julie Gillrie Reader Find

By Julie Gillrie in New Products on Wednesday 12 December 2012

Star Trek Book of Opposites – has there ever been a better book written for trekkie children? I don’t think so.

The title of Best Mom Ever has officially been won. Julie made her babies these Star Trek and Star Wars felt activity books. With a couple of tribbles, er, quibbles, I have to say these are possibly the only books a toddler could ever need. Now I understand the hipster fetish for Mormon Mommy Blogs. Sign me up for adoption.

Luke Butler’s Enterprise series

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Art on Saturday 21 November 2009

My roommate is on a big Star Trek kick, re-watching the entire original series. I forgot how amazing and progressive and ahead-of-its-time it was.
