There was no shortage of cool merchandise for Trekkies at NYCC! The show floor featured hundreds of vendors, including a number of Trek licensees. We took a moment during our visit to NYCC to caputre some of the Trek highlights from the vendor floor.
Most serious Trek collectors are familiar with the company Eaglemoss, well-known for their miniature reproductions of Star Trek ships. Their models also come with a magazine that describes details of the featured ship. Eaglemoss featured two NYCC exclusives, the USS Aventine and the USS Titan, both born from novels written by David Mack. According to a spokesperson for Eaglemoss these ships were “The stars of the con” and both sold out. David Mack even stopped by the booth to sign copies of the Aventine magazine.
Eaglemoss also hosted an exclusive after-party for subscribers and industry friends where attendees got a closer look at the newest Star Trek: Discovery models, the USS Discovery and the USS Shenzhou.

One of the more exciting items was Loot Crate’s new Star Trek Mission Crate. Loot Crate offers consumers the chance to subscribe and have unique items such as figurines and collectibles delivered to their door step. Full details have not been revealed yet on the contents of the first Star Trek loot crate, which will be themed around The Next Generation. But we do know it will include a 6″ Locutus of Borg exclusive mini master figure from QMx, which wasn’t on display but an image was revealed by Loot Crate.
Every Mission Crate will also include a 20 percent discount code for three months of CBS All Access and a chance to win an “Admiral’s Crate” containing $1,200 worth of Trek collectibles. And of course the first crate (with the TNG theme) will have a Borg Cube theme.
Replica costume maker Anovos had a beautiful display that highlighted their new Star Trek: Discovery uniforms. Male and female versions can be pre-ordered from their website. Command, sciences, and operations versions will be available.
Jonathan Kui, a regular Anovos customer, shared his thoughts, “I’m always thrilled when they have new Star Trek offerings. Getting to see their prototypes in person is always a bit of a personal rush and even more so now that they’re premiering screen accurate uniforms/costumes from the new Star Trek: Discovery…I’m holding out for the Captain’s variant.” When asked about the pre-order status, Jonathan said simply, “their quality is always worth the wait.”
Anovos also brought a supply of their Star Trek: The Next Generation Shore Leave Collection Uniform Shirt. The shirt bears some of the distinct features of The Next Generation uniform in a comfortable short-sleeve garment.
For Trekkies who love jewelry, Rock Love did not disappoint an NYCC. The company founded by Allison Cimino offered a lovely display Star Trek inspired jewelry.
Some of the most popular items included a Vulcan script necklace of sterling silver and the iconic IDIC logo necklace.
Allison shared some of her thoughts on Star Trek and jewelry, “I think Star Trek specifically attracts a more mature and intellectual fan following which means more sophisticated jewelry silhouette is appreciated…for my fellow Trekkies, it’s about sentiment and subtlety.” Also very popular were the Starfleet trillion rings and necklaces in yellow citrine, blue topaz, and red garnet. If you missed out on these at the con you can find them online on the Rock Love website.
