5 great Christmas gifts for Star Trek: The Original Series fans

It’s that time of the year again, and we’re all looking for that something special for the Star Trek fans in our lives

Or maybe you’re one of those fans who likes to buy a Star Trek collectible every year. Whatever the case, you don’t want to skip over these gifts for fans of Star Trek: The Original Series.  These are especially perfect if you’re into cos-play.

Science Tricorder

Mr. Spock rarely beamed down to a newly-discovered planet without his trusty tricorder.  This one lights up and has sound effects that will make you think you’re on an away mission.


Get ready to stun your friends (okay, a weak pun, I admit) with this sidearm that will protect you from danger…most of the time. This one isn’t cheap, but then, what is the price of safety?

Spock wig

This goes perfect with the science tricorder. With hair and Vulcan ears, you’re set. Add a Spock uniform, and you’re good to go for your next Star Trek party or convention. One quibble is the sideburns aren’t pointed. I don’t know what the manufacturers were thinking there, but this wig could still work.

Classic Collector Figure Set

This set includes a replica of the bridge from the original series and includes Captain Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Chekov, Uhura, Sulu, and Scott that all come with a hand phaser and a communicator.  It costs $99.99, but it is a once in a lifetime purchase…unless you’re buying one for your friend and realize how much you need one for yourself.

Transporter Heat Changing Mug

Now this is cool and reasonably priced. Just add a hot liquid, and Kirk, Spock, McCoy and Uhura leave the transporter room on one side of the mug, and appear on the planet’s surface on the other side of the mug. Spock has his tricorder, of course, and a hand phaser also makes an appearance.

And even if you don’t purchase these exact items, maybe this list will give you an idea of what to put under the tree.
