SDCC09: Star Trek Pictures From Paramount Booth + New USB Starfleet Badge Giveaway July 23, 2009

San Diego Comic Con has kicked off and if you visit the Paramount Booth (#3535) you will be greeted by some lovely Orion girls and be able to pick up some Star Trek freebies. We have pictures below, plus details on a new USB Starfleet badge give-away.  


Star Trek at Paramount Home Booth

The booth features some ladies in Orion Green, but these are no slave girls, but in TOS era Starfleet uniforms. The booth also has a large backdrop of the new movie USS Enterprise, with a TOS era Captain’s chair (made by Diamond Select). As Paramount is promoting both Star Trek The Original Series Season Two on Blu-ray, as well as the new JJ Abrams Star Trek movie on Blu-ray and DVD, the mixed eras seems fitting.

Give-aways – Salutes, tribbles & USB badge
As we have previously reported, Paramount is giving away Foam-finger Vulcan Salutes as well as Tribbles. Supplies run out quickly, and so you need to check back. You can also follow Paramount Home Entertainment on Twitter to get updates.

Foam finger front and back

Yesterday Paramount announced they are also giving away special USB Starfleet badges. Each badge can be used to "unlock exclusive video content" for the Star Trek 2009 Blu-ray and DVD release. These are available now at the booth, and they will be releasing more throughout the show, again follow the Twitter to find out when they are available next if you missed out.

USB badge

More from Paramount Home Entertainment later
Look for an update tonight from TrekMovie about the ‘exclusive video content’ from these badges and more on upcoming Star Trek DVDs and Blu-ray sets.

6. Shatterhand - July 23, 2009

Cool USB drive…

…Soon to be featured on eBay for some ungodly amount of money that the unlucky ones who didn’t get to go to SDCC won’t be able to afford. *sigh*

7. Gilder McCarroll - July 23, 2009

Pls advise contact info for Promotions Dept. Would like to invite Orion Girls & other ST reps to Chimaeracon 2010, San Antonio.

8. Rick Moyer - July 23, 2009

cool badges.

9. Enterprise - July 23, 2009

Man, those are some ugly looking women.

10. THX-1138 - July 23, 2009

The girls look like that guy who ingested too much silver. I’m a wee bit color blind, but isn’t that shade closer to blue?

11. Sam - July 23, 2009


12. Driver - July 23, 2009

Well, they do look happy enough.

13. Tanner Waterbury - July 23, 2009

Meh, bad paint job on the ladies. Kinda makes me want to hide under my bed then run to em.

14. CaptainDonovin - July 23, 2009

3. John Gill – That USB Starfleet badge looks much better than the one I got from Kellogg’s!

I agree, it wasn’t the worst thing I’ve seen as a movie tie-in but hey for $10 + the price of the cereal it wasn’t so bad. I still have not seen the cereal that was mentioned to be coming.

15. Lore - July 23, 2009

I couldn’t make it to Comic Con. I’m GREEN with envy.

16. Sunfell - July 23, 2009

Are those ladies supposed to be Orions, or are they Zomboids? (I’m thinking zombies, myself…)

Wish I was there. Maybe next year.

17. SupremeDalekOnTheBridge - July 23, 2009

I hate this weekend every year. Every sodding website is jam packed with SDCC stuff, and no real news to interest me.

Nice looking girls though. The middle one is a dead ringer for Jessica Alba. Shame about the make up though.

18. British Naval Dude - July 23, 2009

If only e’ery girl wuz’ green
I’d empty oot me spleen
And then ye’ would see
That it be Vulcan sploo in me…

Fascinating, how I have managed an emerald threesome by just stringing me Lyre… Oh, wait… that be just me fantasy… tha’ real world still wants me rent and cable bill and rest’o’tution fur’ that Hep C jaundice ward I seduced and buggered… Sick lasses are so happy now… burn me BVD’s though…

Oh, I kidz cuz’ I loves all tha’ lasses… no matter thar’ hue or mountain range or illness or vastness or age… it all good… it all good…


19. jas_montreal - July 23, 2009

I hate orion slave girls !

20. Andy - July 23, 2009

USB Starfleet badges!!?? What will they think of next? Voice activated mobile phones in Starfleet badges…? oh hold on a minute!!

21. jbob - July 23, 2009

One of the things that I have always found appealing about Star Trek, in any of its incarnations, is the idea that men and women in the future will explore the universe as equals, free from current gender rolls and concepts of sexuality, that humanity will free itself from the views that hold all of us back as people who united in our humanity. I am thankful that trek is once again in pop culture but do not think we need to be pandered to by the studios as sex obsessed nerds nor that we have to sex up trek to bring people to trek.

22. SciFiMetalGirl - July 23, 2009

It ain’t easy being green!

23. krikzil - July 23, 2009

“That USB Starfleet badge looks much better than the one I got from Kellogg’s!”

I thought the same thing!

24. John - July 23, 2009

The girls are the best thing in this article!

25. STAS` - July 23, 2009


26. Capt Mike of the Terran Empire - July 23, 2009

I can think of a few orders i would love to give to the orion Girls. Love the New bridge with the classic chair. i wished they would have used that for the Movie.

27. Jungle Lover - July 23, 2009

Do they have any DARKER green ones?

28. Start Wrecker - July 23, 2009

14. I still have not seen the cereal that was mentioned to be coming.

If you are talking about the Star Trek cereal, I heard that was an North East Coast thing.

29. Phoenix - July 23, 2009

T_T Im in the verge of tears…

Every summer
It’s a bummer…
That i don’t get to go on these awesome conventions.
Lots of preparations, put on some decorations…
I’m afraid that’s a NEVER…..
Alas i face the truth…The Truth that Trek will live FOREVER!

I’m hoping someday..SOMEDAY i’ll be able to go to a convention….that small thread of hope…keeps me hangin on…
If anybody knows a convention going on ANYWHERE in the UK..please..PLEASE tell me….a young trekkie’s soul is lost=(

30. Yoth7of9 - July 23, 2009

Why can’t we have this also in Europe!!
Really exiting …

31. DC - July 23, 2009

Looking at these images, I gotta say, the classic captain’s chair looks nice on the new bridge.

32. vice1986 - July 23, 2009

That green make-up looks pretty bad. Should have just not had it on in the first place IMO.

33. SB - July 23, 2009


Don’t be silly. Anyone who’s seen “The Apple” knows that bad makeup on Star Trek is canon.

34. Lt. Bailey - July 23, 2009

Green Orion slave girls in red (female) short TOS uniforms….that fulfills two of fantasies.

35. Sonic - July 23, 2009

Yes, it is too bad the world doesn’t revolve around your interests this weekend every year.

>>>17. SupremeDalekOnTheBridge – July 23, 2009

36. SupremeDalekOnTheBridge - July 23, 2009

Well, number 35, it seems to me that in recent years that Star Trek seems to be treated as a purely American (ahem) enterprise.

And besides, there is a worldwide recession on. Some of us can’t afford to travel half way across the world in search of some nerdy looking foam hand.

37. Mike Ten - July 23, 2009

The girls are Ok, they just needed better makeup. When I lived in the San Diego area Comic Con was nothing like it is today, it was all about comics!

38. Just Another German Trekker - July 23, 2009

Oh man, did they REALLY HAVE TO paint them green…

39. Jim Nightshade - July 23, 2009

Gawsh that one girl on the far right has a smile that looks like she inhaled some of the jokers lethal laughing gas! How wide of a mouth does she have? Scary and kinda hot at the same time haha! The Star Trek cereal came out a month before the movie here in Washington state it was at Safeway-it does say limited edition on the box and they are not out at the stores anymore-so that is proof they did release the cereal on the west coast-they have marshmellows and taste like lucky charms ripoffs–also the kelloggd usb drive wasnt a delta badge it was a wrist bracelet-I also have the plates with the new big e on em-they are small plastic gray and not very 3d-if you tilt the plate the big e gets closer then farther away as you tilt it-kinda dissappointing–any of you convention goers wanna trade something for the limited edition uhura lemme know-i still have 1 box of cereal left haha

40. T Drake - July 23, 2009

Girls are cute – the green dye job was done stupidly…..

41. John Gill - July 23, 2009

14 & 28:
I found the Star Trek Cereal in Lafayette, Louisiana at Target in their grocery section, the town I live in is just 25 minutes away from Lafayette and we do not have it in any of the stores here, and Wal-Mart here still does not have ANY Star Trek toys or games.

42. Brad - July 23, 2009

if I was one of those three Orion girls, I think I’d commit suicide! They look terrible. It looks like they’ve been rolling in cow crap all day long and came home and put lipstick on. The green skin tone isn’t even either. Orion girl fail! I hope they’re getting paid a lot to look like that. Oh well… poor girls

43. Commodore Kor'Tar - Vengence is Mine Sayeth the Warrior ! - July 23, 2009

Badly Painted green girls in red shirts, I sense a Star Trek X-Mas musical special coming down the pipe , and it don’t smell nice ! LOL!

44. SChaos1701 - July 23, 2009

Heh heh, I’m an maladjusted nerd who nitpicks everything that’s brought up on this site.

45. Odkin - July 23, 2009

As i said in another post, mark my words: now that Trek is all high-profile corporate, we have seen the last of the term “Orion Slave Girls”.

And we are all the poorer for it.

46. MC1701B - July 23, 2009

14, 28, 41. The Star Trek cereal was here in Viera, FL for a couple of weeks, at the Wal-Mart Supercenter, It was next to the cooking oils instead of on the cereal. Debuted at $2, dropped to $1.50, then disappeared.

The oat part is shaped like cinnamon rolls and called “galaxies.” The marsmallows are red-and-white (Vulcan) and blue-and-white (Earth) circles, and deltas in red, blue, and yellow.

It tastes slightly better than Lucky Charms. Actually, at $1.50 a box, it tastes a LOT better than Lucky Charms.

47. Captain Dunsel - July 23, 2009

Quick! Someone send The Shat one of those foam hands, before his next appearance with Conan!

48. kitofnine - July 23, 2009

Again, I live in Australia *cries*

49. Spockish - July 23, 2009

How fake looking can they get with the Green, they make them look like they are from Africa not the Planet Orion. Plus what makes it look so fake is it’s so dark that is does not allow shade variances when parts of the figure in in the lit areas and look darker in the dim areas. The coloring looks like it was done by Cartoonists that only use 8bit computers.

If you do it again at least get someone that lives a real life and does not think every thing is a 8bit Cartoon figure. And next time give them costumes that are a hundred years younger like the ones worn in Enterprise. Or are you so scared that you will spoil the virginity of the Comic-Con guests.

50. SChaos1701 - July 23, 2009

Lol…what did I just say?

51. Scott Xavier - July 23, 2009


52. DJT - July 24, 2009

Hot chicks are hot chicks. Why paint them green? And a bad shade of green at that. The uniforms would have been enough. Heck, a piece of tape cut out in the shape of a starfleet insignia would have been enough.

But alas…

53. Joe K - July 24, 2009

Resistance is futile!

54. Dr. Image - July 24, 2009

Those badges should be 2TB, like isolinear chips.
(Guess we’ll have to wait about a year for that though.)

55. Comic-Con me - July 24, 2009

stood in line for HOURS to get this stuff – you bet a little bit of it will be going on ebay!! but not all thats for sure! the green girls are hot yes, but the green paint is really gross and sticky!! they didnt show a photo of the tribbles! more comicon today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

56. Lord Garth, Formerly of Izar - July 24, 2009

Hot chicks but the blackface is rather insulting

57. The Bear - July 24, 2009

Geez, Paramount sure is cutting corners at Comic Con. They’re giving away free animals that produces an average litter of ten every twelve hours. This has cut down their cost of swag to give away, as it self replicates. Then they’ve hired the cheapest, and skankiest Orion Slave Girls that I’ve ever seen to give these things away.

Oh, and the foam hands… they were made from the waste scrapped from the sides at the bottom of the reclemation tanks of the Enterprise.

58. Jim Nightshade - July 24, 2009

And just HOW do you know all these details Mr. The Bear?? Did you perhaps supply them with some of this swag? Hmmmmmmm?????
Is your name really CYRANO JONES perhaps? Hmmm?????
Or maybe HARCOURT FENTION MUDD??? He dealt with Skanky girls before too…. is represented by Gorilla Nation. Please contact Gorilla Nation for ad rates, packages and general advertising information.
