Star Trek Salt and Pepper Shaker Set

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on May 2nd, 2011

This Star Trek Salt and Pepper Shaker Set will make any meal a little extra geeky. They are ceramic versions of the U.S.S. Enterprise and the Shuttle. Now all we need is squeezable dispensers shaped like Khan. You know, for Khan-diments.

These will cost you just $14.99 at the Star Trek Store. The Shuttle and the Enterprise stick together thanks to magnets and separate easily when you need to use them. These are the voyages of the salt ship Enterprise..

Seagate introduces 2.5-inch Constellation.2, 1TB Enterprise Hard Drive

Posted in Storage by Conner Flynn on December 13th, 2010

Seagate has introduced their new Server-specific enterprise hard drive. The 2.5-inch hard drive will have a total capacity of 1TB. It’s dubbed the Constellation.2 and it can be used by small to medium businesses as well as large enterprises. It can be used in directed attached storage (DAS), network attached storage (NAS) and storage area network (SAN) environments.

It should give IT managers more options to meet capacity requirements. The Constellation.2 is available in 250GB, 500GB and 1TB capacities and promises 6-GB/s SATA or 6GB/s serial-attached SCSI interface options.

Star Trek Enterprise pizza wheel

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on September 21st, 2010

Trekkies love a good pizza. Who doesn’t? So if you are going to slice up a pizza, you may as well do it with the Enterprise. Set a course for the pepperoni frontier. This thing will slice your fresh pizza pie faster than phasers can slice through a Klingon warship.

The blade is made from laser-etched stainless steel, and the body is made from a durable zinc-alloy chromium plate. Mostly, it just looks awesome and you know it will impress your friends.

Toshiba crams 2.5-inch HDD into 3.5-inch bracket for enterprises

Posted in Toshiba by Shane McGlaun on June 22nd, 2010

Toshiba has more HDDs in its line up than you can shake a stick at. Some of them are for consumers and some of them are aimed at businesses. Toshiba has announced a new HDD that is aimed at the enterprise with blazing fast speed and low power consumption.

The drive family is the MBF2xxLRC and are 2.5-icnh drives inside a 3.5-inch bracket. The point of the drives is to let enterprises upgrade to more power efficient storage drives without having to replace hardware not supporting 2.5-inch drives.

The tiniest Star Trek Enterprise

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on March 14th, 2010

Sure, it looks like it took on a fleet of Klingon Battle Cruisers all by itself and suffered some severe dents, but what you are looking at is the smallest Enterprise ever. It measures just 8.8 micrometers in length (1 micrometer = 1000th of a millimeter) and was created by Takayuki Hoshino and Shinji Matsui using a 30 kV Ga+ focused-ion-beam CVD.

It was created for the The 47th International Conference on Electron, Ion and Photon Beam Technology and Nanofabrication Bizarre/Beautiful Micrograph Contest back in 2003.

These are the voyages of the Submarine Enterprise…

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on December 24th, 2009

Since you can’t actually fly the Enterprise through space, this is the next best thing. A submarine version of the Enterprise that can explore the deepest depths of your swimming pool, by Japanese model maker Starfleet Yokosuka.

It’s a 1/350 scale model. Of course all of the life that you encounter will be marine life, but at least you won’t run into any Klingons. Don’t worry, Kirk can still find a mermaid or two to shag.

Gingerbread Star Trek Enterprise

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on December 21st, 2009

Tis the season for all manner of geeky desserts. We’ve seen our share around here, whether they be Star Wars or Star Trek. All are delicious if not nutritious.

Here we have the Star Trek Enterprise made of gingerbread. Apparently it lacks the necessary propulsion to keep it upright and so is kept afloat by several glasses beneath. I would love to take the first bite and cause a hull breach.

Animated musical Starship Enterprise Lamp

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on November 15th, 2009

Animated musical Starship Enterprise LampThis musical Star Trek Enterprise lamp is superior to this one in almost every way. It says Star Trek, is actually from Star Trek and the Enterprise looks just like it should.

This one has a button at the base that will automatically turn the Star Trek theme song on. Don’t everybody all nerdgasm at once, but there’s more. That music is accompanied by a spoken prologue as the Enterprise on the base spins.

“Star Ship” Chandelier

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on November 9th, 2009

"Star Ship" ChandelierCheck out this “Star Ship” Chandelier that boldly goes where no lighting has gone before…while skirting copyright and licensing issues by offering up a generic chrome finished and terrible re-imagining of the Enterprise.

The back looks like it came from the original Klingon ships, while the front is very much like the Enterprise’s saucer section reinforced with Erector set parts. It’s still pretty cool though and would fit into any geek home nicely.

Brick Pic: Starfleet on a budget

Posted in Brick Pic by Conner Flynn on September 9th, 2009

Brick Pic: Starfleet on a budgetThis is what happens when the economy tanks. Nerds who can no longer afford models of the U.S.S. Enterprise are forced to make them out of cardboard and bud light cans and dress up their dog in it.

Coming this Halloween to a town near you: A rotund tin-foil Borg ship with legs and a head towing the Enterprise behind. An Enterprise that lifts it’s leg to phaser trees and drops photon torpedoes on your lawn.

Star Trek Enterprise Record Player

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on August 16th, 2009

Star Trek Enterprise Record PlayerThis Star Trek Enterprise record player was designed from the NCC-1701 version from the new Star Trek movie and uses the saucer section as the turntable, sending your music where no man has gone before. Sadly it’s not real and was just designed to make us all drool, along with 24 other funky looking Enterprises.

There’s an Enterprise on roller skates, a creepy insect Enterprise and more. You’ll never look at the ship in the same way again. Look, I’m a dork and I really want this Enterprise record player. So somebody create it already.

Star Trek wall mural turns your room into the bridge of the Enterprise

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on April 6th, 2009

Star Trek wall muralLiving in your mom’s basement has some serious drawbacks, I’m sure. Why not spruce it up a little bit. Live a little. Well, now your dream of living on the bridge of the Enterprise can come true with this realistic wall mural, available for pre-order and shipping next month.

Decorate with some tribbles. Install some turbolift sound effects for when your mom comes down to do some laundry. Most importantly, buy this Captain Kirk command chair.

Guy turns Prius into Star Trek shuttle

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on November 18th, 2008

Guy turns Prius into Star Trek shuttleThis is about a year old, but it’s cool. This guy turned his Prius into a Star Trek Shuttle, basically just using decals and adding blue lights under the car. Interesting how the Prius’ shape lends itself to a Star Fleet shuttle. Inside the car, he has it set up so he can add sound effects. This is a mod with minimum customization, that just about anybody can pull off. I wonder if his garage looks like the hanger deck and has one of these parked inside.

Star Trek Plate Covers make light switches fun again

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on November 12th, 2008

Star Trek Plate Covers make light switchesCheck out these Star Trek TNG plate covers for nerd pretend time in your home. The movie will be out soon so why not dress up your light switches? You can get three of them for $18 each. The power plug plate is probably the coolest as it says Plasma Flux Hazard. And that, my geek friend, allows you to pretend that a warp core breach is imminent. You and Geordi better get the hell out of there.

After play time, you can argue about who looks better in Spock ears and when your nerd rage takes over you’ll no doubt roll around on the floor and fight ala Kirk and Spock in the episode entitled Amok Time. And though it’s just wrong, that fighting will give way to sweet love. Afterwards you try to convince yourselves that it’s the work of an evil entity on board the ship. Just another day in the life of 2 Trekkies.

Starship Enterprise built from office supplies

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on November 5th, 2008

Starship Enterprise built from office suppliesIf you happen to be bored at work, why not build yourself the United Federation Of Planets most famous ship. From office supplies. Instructables shows you how to use your work time to make a Starship Enterprise out of supplies that are laying around.
