Need some badges?
In November Qmx worked with Paramount on a special exclusive Blu-ray set for Best Buy, which included a set of four replica badges. So the only way to get the badges was with that set, until now. Today Qmx announced the badges (the same ones from the exclusive Best Buy Blu-ray set) will be available for retail, sold separately for $9.95 each. There are four different badges to choose: Command, Science, Engineering and Medical. Each badge is made from steel and hand-burnished. All are screen-accurate replicas of the original badges used for the film (although those were made of prop plastic).
According to QMx, the badges will be shipping by April 9th. They will be available at comic shops and other retailers.
UPDATE: Badges can now be pre-ordered at Entertainment Earth.

Perfect for Cosplay
And if you want to fill out your cosplay set, Entertainment Earth also carries the Star Trek Movie Rubies Costume Collection (You would have to remove the lower-quality pin that comes with the Rubies shirts).
More to come from Qmx in 2010
Qmx has the license for all replicas from the 2009 Star Trek movie. For 2010 Qmx is planning a number of products, including an Artisan Series Enterprise replica, maquette statues, a phaser replica, and more. Look for a TrekMovie update on these other Qmx Star Trek replicas in the near future.
