Great timing, as I’m compiling my Christmas list! Thanks!

The Laser Etched Enterprise D looks REALLY nice. And Second (I think!)

We (my family) decided that our best gift/s will be our gourmet feast and our company this Christmas ( oh, there’s that awful word again!) No spending this year.

These look to be really fine collectables. Shame I no longer collect the Star Trek Playmates line of figures. I had at one point almost all of them, including red Data, and gold Riker. These new ones make me wonder if I wanna start back….

Great list – thanks!

I’m gonna get myself Kirk and Spock from Amok Time – they do look great and they’re a wonderful role model for true friendship.


yes that book looks interesting. need to get that one on the gift list.


I think I’m one of about 13 Trekkies who actually LIKES those funky 23rd Century (via 1970’s) Starfleet pajamas! Should I have my TREK-Geek card revoked if I admit that I like them even more than the other TREK film uniforms…?

Love the ripped shirt on the Kirk “Amok Time” action figure. Long live the amazing stories of Theodore Sturgeon!

6 – Agreed. “‘The Lord of the Rings’ and Philosophy” is an interesting anthology.

Gah! Why can’t there be a more affordable version of the Star Trek V / VI Assault Phaser Prop Replica? I LOVE that phaser design, but I’m NEVER gonna spend $500 on it.

#7: I’m with you! I’ve always loved TMP.

How about a new addition of the Star Trek Chronology!


Good luck making heads-or-tails of that once TREK XI comes out! You’ll have a migraine once you’re through with it!

so what about fans in the UK :P what do we get? a lump of coal and an orange :D

Be interesting to see how things change after the new
movie – I for one will always love the originals (with some
room for the new of course).

On my list:

TOS Remastered.

It’s a pity the DST TOS Tricorder and TWOK Phaser aren’t out yet.

The Kirk and Spock nutcracker- do they come with all the Sulu jokes that people will be saying when you bring those out? LOL!

I can’t see where the nuts go on the nutcrackers, and I am afraid to ask!!!!!

Trekkies will buy anything, but what would a Trekkie want with a gold handled TOS phaser?

Is that like the golden gun? One shot kill!

#7 – I guess I’m one of the ’13’. I’ve always liked the TMP uniforms much better than the ‘high school band uniforms’ of the movies. The TMP uniforms were more functional.

Not much on my Christmas list since the DS Tricorders were pushed back to 2009 as well as the TMP phaser and let’s not mention all the movie figures, etc. Birthday list…well that’s a different matter.

The Reliant is a bit pricey, but nice. The Hallmark communicator is pretty cool for $18.

These days I’m not much interested in action figures, busts etc, (vastly preferring ships and prop toys) but I just purchased the Kirk/Spock “Amok Time” two-fer. The detailing truly is near perfect. Even the packaging looks great.

I’ve got the communicator ornament. The sound is excellent. Many times better than the full size communicator. Cool stuff

I need to still pick up that Trek comics collection. 22 bucks is a good price.


I was thinking the same thing! And what a way to save space… the final frontier! ;-)

why have we only ever had a 4″ Reliant, about time someone made a good size toy not a friggin micromachine version..

Great Ideas for Xmas.

You for got about the enterprise d from art asylum and DST


21 & 26
Got both ornaments (not the Tribble one. Looks cheesy).

I also have a set of Playmates figures that were the Nija Turtles dressed as Kirk, Spock, Bones, and Scotty…

Agree about the assault phaser. Cool item but way too pricey…

TMP is the one… Really want that phaser.
Can’t understand why it keeps being referenced as TWOK , we all know it was introduced in TMP

Best looking phaser design, ever and a great price.

Very interested in what the phaser/tricorder/communicator designs will look like for the new movie.

Does anyone have an educated idea on this?

I really want the Enterprise-D! Apparently the saucer seperates!
