Official product shots of TNG leggings from Wild Bangarang.

Last month, a new line of Star Trek activewear for women hit the market. From purveyors of officially licensed geek and gamer apparel, UK-based Wild Bangarang debuted their first Star Trek-themed clothing, featuring leggings, workout crop tops, and more. The new Trek products are reasonably priced and come in sizes from XXS to 3XL. There’s more to the line than we can highlight in this article, so be sure to check out all the Star Trek products here.

Review: TNG Leggings and Crop Top

One of the highly featured items in the new line is these The Next Generation leggings and crop top pairs, which come in command red, medical/science blue, and engineering/ops gold. These outfits will really let you show off your inner Trekkie at your next workout. I personally prefer to show off my geeky side in more subtle ways, and I love that the design of the leggings (which you can purchase separately from the crop tops) lets you do just that. They have sleek modern designs—you’ll notice each color scheme comes with slightly different geometry between the color and black on the leggings. I opted for command red, which has a nice solid red stripe down the sides, and top and bottom red accents in the back.

Both the leggings ($39.62 each) and crop tops ($26.42 each) are made from a blend of 80% polyester and 20% elastane (i.e. Spandex). I ordered a medium in both (my go-to size; I’m 5’9″), and the fit is perfect. If you’re a bit taller than that, there is plenty of stretch left in the length of the leggings. The elastane component means these leggings will fit a wide range of sizes and still be comfortable.

The material feels quite soft and strong. The construction is top quality and entirely made in the UK, where the company is based. The colors are bright and lines clean, even when stretched quite far. I’d place these on the higher end of quality for leggings at this price point.

Review: Borg Leggings

I also tried on a pair of Wild Bangarang’s Borg-themed leggings. The material, quality, and sizing are consistent with the TNG leggings and the quality of the printing is high as well. The main downside of these leggings, though, is that they just don’t scream “Borg” to me. Not that I can conjure the perfect image of a Borg’s legs from memory, but these feel more like “generic sci-fi robot” rather than Borg. The design mimics well worn, oxidized metallic machinery components. The worn metal has a gritty look with a dark, brassy color. The lines create an organic look that’s more Borg Queen than Borg Drone (which is fine by us), but it would be nice to see a more black-gray-green color scheme that brings back images of Borg technology and ships. Creating Borg leggings, admittedly, is a challenge, as the Borg aren’t exactly known for having distinctive legs.

Command Red!

I love the TNG Red XL, my red shirt is 35 years old ragged and patched up inside and out. At swagbucks years ago I recieve the 25 year celebration patch from the Eugene Wesley Roddenberry Jr Colection which replace the communication badge that had worn off the shirt. I like to have something new to exercise in….

Daniel Falconer

A cool Science/Medicine blue for my daughter, I reckon. Thanks for the great giveaway. :)

Billy Johnson

Medical Blue, Small, please!!!
Make it so!!!
