With the 50th anniversary of Star Trek finally here, we thought we’d show you some of the more interesting anniversary products you can pick up to commemorate the event. We know there are some great books out there, including The Fifty Year Mission (in two parts, reviews to come), The Star Trek Book (review also coming soon), and National Geographic’s Star Trek The Official Guide to Our Universe: The True Science Behind the Starship Voyages, and of course the new 50th anniversary Blu-ray set. There’s also IDW’s Star Trek 50th Anniversary Cover Celebration. But if you’re looking for something a little quirkier, check out some of the items in our round-up, many of which were announced as partnerships earlier this year.
