With Star Trek: Discovery came a whole new look and feel to Starfleet in the 23rd century. And that means not only a lot of new products inspired by props seen on the show, but also some props inspired by real-world 21st century products you can actually buy! Read on to learn how you can deck yourself and your home out in Discovery fashion.
FOREO ISSA Hybrid Sonic Toothbrush
Before your next checkup with Dr. Culber, you’ll want to make sure your oral hygiene is up to Starfleet snuff. Why not use what Discovery crewmembers use to brush your pearly whites? The now famous black toothbrushes used by Trek’s first openly gay couple, Culber and Stamets, in episode 5 are actual real brushes you can buy today: the FOREO ISSA Hybrid Sonic Toothbrush. And, they are surprisingly futuristic.
Anthony Rapp, who plays Lt. Stamets, describes the silicone brushes as “some kind of high-end electric toothbrush that probably has some kind of laser beam or something.” Sweden-based FOREO tells us that, while the real things don’t have laser beams, the ISSA toothbrushes “are innovative and high-end electrical toothbrushes combining Sonic Pulse Technology and a revolutionary silicone design for brushing like no other.” The real ISSA’s do have bristles (which were removed for shooting on Discovery).
And, FOREO is totally onboard with Starfleet choosing the ISSA as its official toothbrush. Through Monday, trekkies can get 25% off the toothbrush, which retails for $150, by using the discount code STARTREK at checkout.
Oh, and for the matching pajamas? We’re told the tops are from Lululemon, but this particular shade of maroon cannot be bought in stores. Still, except for the color, you can get pretty close.
The official DISCO tee shirt
Want to dress a bit more casually to head to the mess for a late night snack? Why not do it in style with an official DISCO tee shirt, which will be seen on screen for the first time in episode 6 of Discovery, premiering this Sunday.
We got a preview of the DISCO shirts this summer, thanks to executive producer Aaron Harberts who wore one to San Diego Comic-Con. But, last week on After Trek, we learned that the shirts are officially canon during a sneak peek at next week’s episode.
You can now buy your very own DISCO tee shirt on the official StarTrek.com store. They retail for $26.95.
Your very own Ripper to navigate your home’s mycelial network
Okay, so full size giant tardigrades don’t really exist. But, you can get awfully close with this very adorable tardigrade plush from Hashtag Collectables. This plush will keep you safe so long as you keep him happy by feeding him lots of delicious spores, and it retails for $39.99. You can also buy a mini-plush from third party sellers for around $16.
Discovery uniform boots — in shoe form
The official costume boots worn as part of the Starfleet uniform in Discovery feature a very special sole, named the Starfleet sole, which was licensed non-exclusively to CBS by Sully Wong. The company won’t be selling Starfleet boots, but trekkies will soon be able to buy a very special shoe made with the Starfleet sole.
Sully Wong tells us that fans will be able to buy the shoe, dubbed the SW Orbitur Sole, on their website starting next Spring. A company spokesperson told TrekMovie, “Fans can then alternate the upper boot portion with a black soccer sock and shin-guard and voila! the most accurate Star Trek cosplay outfit in history!”
No word yet on the retail price of the SW Orbitur Sole.
What about sneakers for off duty?
When you’re not exploring strange new worlds, you can relax a bit with these comfy screen-used Nike sneakers seen in the episode 6 preview on After Trek.
This shoe is actually a slightly modified version of the Nike Sock Dart. Normally, the shoe comes in white, but you can “design your own” on Nike’s website and choose blue, or whatever color you desire. You can even put a personalized message on the shoe’s tongue. Ours say “TILLY“. The Sock Dart retails for $120, or for a range of prices depending on size on Amazon.
