I like this.

I could first, but I won’t.

2. Daoud - November 16, 2010

MMCLXI, “2161″. Accurate even!

3. Battle-scarred Sciatica - November 16, 2010

I have just got my little boy and girl a cadet t-shirt each from ThinkGeek. They are damn cool!

I will now have to indulge myself and my wife with something from this site. Hopefully they will deliver outside of the States!

Keeping that Trek alive and passing on the torch. Oh yes.

Keep on Trekkin’ people. Keep on Trekkin’!

4. Smack Callahan - November 16, 2010

Looks nice. Shame I can’t order ANY of it because I’m 3XL, which isn’t a unique size amongst Trekkies. Smooth move, Paramount.

5. naHQun - November 16, 2010

Can’t wait for the Defense Force Academy store!

6. Captain Conrad - November 16, 2010

Gotta get me some of that!

7. ix9000 - November 16, 2010

This made my day. I love it.

8. WItnessFTP - November 16, 2010

I love the Red Shirt Cologne. Packaging has a Red Shirt with crosshairs on him…

Tag line:
“As Security in Starfleet, you could die your first day on the job, or any day after that. Live for today and smell good tonight. Wear Red Shirt Cologne: because when you wear this color, tomorrow may never come.”

9. Austin J - November 16, 2010

FUU.

I am going to be spending some cash here.

wonder if I can convince my school to let me use Student aide money there…. :P

10. Lt. Bailey - November 16, 2010

Kobayashi Maru shirt…thats for me.

11. Driver - November 16, 2010

I wonder what football is like in the 23rd century?

12. garen - November 16, 2010

fighting phoenix? refresh my memory, please.

13. TrekGuy62 - November 16, 2010

Wish there were kid sizes. My daughter wants to wear a Starfleet shirt to school on College Day.

14. CmdrR - November 16, 2010

Me likee.

15. General Martok - November 16, 2010

I like very very much.

16. Edgar Governo - November 16, 2010

As long as there doesn’t turn out to be a big Star Trek logo on the back of the clothing (as there often is on this sort of merchandise), I’d be very interested in getting some of these in-universe items…

Now, if they can just make a Parrises Squares shirt instead of just a mousepad. :)

17. Captain Karl - November 16, 2010

I wonder if Spock uses the titanium spork?

18. CarlG - November 16, 2010

Oooh, I see new coffee mugs in my future…. :)

19. Jim Nightshade - November 16, 2010

kool but i still like my enterprise coffee mugs the same kind as archer drank from in the series-from star trek the experience vegas-only place they were ever available–withe the little stte auth. user on it–i am not as fond of most sfa stuff

20. Daoud - November 16, 2010

@12 Cochrane’s first warp craft was… the Phoenix

21. CarlG - November 17, 2010

Actually, now that I think of it, I’d really like one of those uber-posh Excelsior teacups that Sulu was drinking from at the beginning of Star Trek VI….

22. Luke Sutton - November 17, 2010

If only the shipping was cheaper for the UK. A shame, but nevertheless, this stuff looks excellent.

23. Capt Mike of the Terran Empire - November 17, 2010

Hey this looks realy kool. I like the Red Shirt looks to be to Dangerous. Especialy for a Star Ship Capt. I do hope though they get something from the empire.

24. Peter - November 17, 2010

Their credit card system has been hacked.

25. RedShirtAwesome - November 17, 2010

@4 I agree! I’m a 5XL with a growing man-fupa and I’m appalled that there isn’t a muumuu option under sizes! Way to drop the ball Paramount! I’d pick it up if I could see around my growing man-fupa! Looks like another attempt at Hollywood to make everyone think they need to look like an anorexic 2XL!

26. Jorg Sacul - November 17, 2010

“like an anorexic 2XL” wow…!

27. da laffin tlhIngan - November 17, 2010

What? No Klingons? And no Security?

28. Losira - November 17, 2010

Awesome! Brings me back to my college days! Boy did I garner a collection! This is going to be fun I would love to see eventualy put in stock. Text books of the acadamy cirriculum. Let’s do this all the way! Work all of this into a academy 2nd life role play. Oh! The possibilities!

29. Losira - November 17, 2010

And let’s not forget the lectures,quizes,exams. And Fraternities and sororieties! Let’s not forget the Annual senior PRANKS! Like I said the possibilities are endless. A Campus store w/ academy 2nd life the whole expirience.

30. Losira - November 17, 2010

One thing missing Class Rings

31. Ralph F - November 17, 2010

When I was a young nerd I had one of those school letter decals on my car window that said STARFLEET ACADEMY. Bought it at a “Vul-Con” s/f convention in New Orleans.

32. garen - November 17, 2010

was Fighting Phoenix ever mentioned in a show??

33. Anon - November 17, 2010

Could all this Fighting Phoenix stuff be a teaser for the new movie? Maybe we’ll get another few minutes of academy time in 2? Also, did anyone notice that the Zefram Cochrine library shirt has a picture of the building Kirk and McCoy come out of right before the Kobyashi Maru test?

34. vulcannonibird - November 18, 2010

Why don’t they have the “cool” departments like “Weapons and Defense”? LOL.

Personally I scan the logos off “Mr. Scotts Guide to the Enterprise” and make the shirt myself….

35. Charlie in Colorado - November 19, 2010

I have to admit, I’m surprised. And somewhat shocked. This stuff not only looks cool, but it also looks good. Obviously, the marketing department actually put some thought into these products instead of the usual, “Oh, the hell with it — just silkscreen Star Trek wherever and those nerdy geeky dweeby fans will buy it!”

So kudos and qapla to the fine folks at CBS Paramount marketing. My Christmas wish list now has a couple more items on it.

36. Trek Lady - November 20, 2010

*sigh* For those complaining about sizes too small, I have the opposite problem. Sizes are all too big! I need someting in XS petite for women. Those “one size fits all” things always overwhem me. I would love to get a sweatshirt, but not if it goes to my knees.

37. The Vulcanista - November 21, 2010

Want.

38. I, Mugsy - November 24, 2010

Great – more ways to milk money from a franchise from fans with too much money to burn!

39. Spock - December 7, 2010

Don’t buy anything from this store as it is insecure and your credit card data could be stolen
