Great! I am almost tempted to order one, but given the exchange rate, postage etc, it would possibly cost me an arm and a leg. As well, I would probably feel like a right dork if I walked round here wearing one of those neat T-shirts. People in NZ aren’t into wearable franchise merchandise, even Star Wars stuff (lots of Star Wars toys here in shops though), as they seem to be in the US and elsewhere.

What to do?

Why Voyager? That seems a bit odd…

May 26, 2011 2:30 pm

I agree Dr. Cheis, having VOY as one of the “Illuminati” shirts…sorry I had to.

But they could’ve easily used TNG or DS9…hell even Enterprise would be fine (since that is the only “canon” trek since ST09’s alternate universe). Oh well…c’est la vie…

May 26, 2011 2:55 pm

Uh, Voyager ROCKS. That’s why.

May 26, 2011 3:06 pm

No plus sizes? Clearly, they do not know their fan-base. CAll me when you get to a 2x or so, then we can talk…..

May 26, 2011 3:06 pm

Voyager ROCKS … funniest thing I’ve heard all day


May 26, 2011 3:21 pm

I’ll deffo get an XXL TNG shirt when they make one. I am tempted by the one with the Enterprise, though.

May 26, 2011 3:22 pm

OOOOOH! Do you know what’d be PERFECT for these shirts?!

I would love one with the Terran Empire Logo.
But please. No Red Shirt. That would be way to Dangerous.

May 26, 2011 4:37 pm

“Voyager ROCKS” couldn’t have put it better myself. “No plus sizes? Clearly, don’t know their fan-base” that made me laugh, I’ve only just stopped fitting smalls…

May 26, 2011 4:54 pm

Oh, Lord….

I swear, the merchandise that CBS allows is getting more stupid and bizarre.

May 26, 2011 4:54 pm

Can you wash them?
Canon. Really. Really?

May 26, 2011 5:00 pm

And what’s on the back of them?

“For a good time, call Kirk!” ?

May 26, 2011 5:22 pm

Sadly, those shirts are going to be the most dynamic thing about some of the people wearing them.

May 26, 2011 6:35 pm

Too bad the phaser strikes don’t light up- shooting from the Enterprise.

May 26, 2011 7:01 pm

@8 I agree — Voyager rocks! We’re all entitled to our favorites, after all. Evidently the shirts’ designers are of a similar mindset.

Now, when the shirts come with their own built in transporter or holodeck technology, I’ll actually buy one!

May 26, 2011 7:52 pm

ooohhhooooooo liked all heheheee, in special T-short No. 2 :)

May 26, 2011 9:21 pm

Must… have…

May 26, 2011 10:28 pm
Keachick, Keachick… what to do??? BUY one!! WEAR it !! Who cares what anyone else thinks!! LOL Have fun~ I have 2 shirts that my husband doesn’t mind if I wear in public. haha – 1 is of the new crew in the delta shield and I wear it regularly on my days off when I am running errands etc. The other is for cooler weather (long sleeves) and has the Enterprise in a bottle. (too funny!) The third one, is one I threaten to wear out in public but he refuses to be seen with me if I were to. I like to at least scare him into thinking I would wear it. :D It is the one that you may have seen on the back of the box of “Cheez-its” You had to send in boxtops or something plus some money to get a poly-nylon short sleeve shirt that I (since I have an affinity for Spock) purchased in the blue color. It would have been much cooler if it was long sleeved. (I admit, I wouldn’t wear THAT one in public lol) But I think I am going to order one of these light up shirts asap. You never know a fashion trend just may start because one of us wearing our Trek shirts! LOL If not, it’s still fun, because those are the only “fun” shirts I have. The others in my closet aren’t as fun since they are more of a sensible and classic style.… Read more »

#9 and 15 There is an XXL size in the men’s T-shirts.

The same size measurements apply to all four T-shirts.

Looks cool! I like the gold.

#27 N- Dude, she’s not a dude- just fyi.

May 27, 2011 11:03 am

Wlll they be in Las Vegas in August at the official con? That would save on shipping…

Hey there KC (RP)

Bollocks to what the rest of NZ thinks…I shall be ordering at least two and wearing them around Dunedin with pride!


May 27, 2011 2:52 pm

30, I call everyone dude :P

May 28, 2011 3:04 pm

To everyone in the UK (and this IS a british website!) these are only £14.99, which I think is very reasonable considering the inferior ‘Star Bores’ ones are £19.99!

May 28, 2011 3:44 pm

#33 that’s funny, N— I knew a man who called everyone Bob. Even women. LOL

May 28, 2011 5:15 pm

Aww, what? – Why couldn’t they have done a big, animated LCARS side-schematic of a ship rather than just the dull old logo?

Maybe a ship that that you don’t see too much of like an Akira.

the vegas con would be an appropriate place to sell these since they are essentially flashing neon vegas star trek shirts haha–too gaudy fer me i think—does look like something sheldon might wear–

May 30, 2011 11:36 am

I’m gonna get so much crap because of wearing this in public from my friends… :)

What bothers me is the durability. When the batteries run down, do we just have a blank, boring black T-shirt or what? How long do the batteries last? What happens if you wear it outside and it starts raining? I live in a city with a reputation for experiencing four seasons in one day, irrespective of the official season. There are not a great many convertibles driven around here.

(I get a little pissy at having to replace batteries all the time. I have had my fill already with one or two of the kids’ toys you can get that are battery operated.)
