If you have Star Trek fans in your life, SYFY WIRE’s latest holiday gift guide will help you navigate the Delta Quadrant of Christmas shopping for some awesome goodies.
Be it must-own items for cosplayers, board game lovers, video gamers, or collectors, there’s a bit of everything below, ensuring that you will delight even the most fervent Trekkie with your totally original gift that you definitely thought up yourself (don't worry, we'll keep your secret).
Star Trek: Discovery Insignia Badges
Star Trek finally returned to TV earlier this year on CBS All Access with Star Trek: Discovery. The series features a new cast and crew (with a few returning faces like Sarek and Harry Mudd), a new starship, as well as some new costumes and com badges. Now you can own one or all four officially licensed insignia badges available in Command, Medical, Operations, or the Science division. Oh, and it's also the perfect gift for cosplayers, and a nifty stocking stuffer.
U.S.S. Enterprise Sushi Set
If you love Star Trek AND sushi then this awesome sushi set will hit the sweet spot. The set includes a shiny Enterprise NCC-1701 in mid-warp and propped on a wooden base, which is actually... a sushi plate. If you remove the top of the saucer section, you even get a small dish for soy sauce. Slide out the warp effects of the nacelles and voila, you have your own pair of chopsticks.
Phaser Remote Replica
Set your TV channels to stun with this awesome Star Trek: The Original Series phaser remote control replica. It not only looks good sitting on your living room table, but is also a functioning remote control recreated from 3D laser scans of the official prop. It actually includes Type I and Type II Phasers from TOS, which provide a wide variety of settings and beam strengths, and features various firing sounds.
Ah, the trouble with Tribbles. The little Klingon-detecting furry creatures introduced during TOS are available in four colors and make Tribble sounds whenever they’re shaken. Although the TV version multiplies at incredible speed, the plush versions are thankfully sterile, so you don’t have to worry about waking up one morning with your house filled to the brim with Tribbles.
This bilingual Klingon/English version of Monopoly will no doubt fulfill the Klingon fan in your life. The custom game board features planets and territories from the Star Trek universe, with six special collectible player tokens plucked from Klingon iconography. Will you fight to the death to win the game and shout: Qapla'!?
Star Trek: TNG Data Lounger
Although Data doesn’t sleep, this onesie lounger will help count electric sheep and help you drift off in unadulterated comfort. The onesie comes with two handy pockets where you can put everything from a Phaser to a communicator to a tricorder, and is a replica of The Next Generation’s first uniforms -- complete with an embroidered com badge and rank pips. Oh, and the feet even zip off for maximum comfort.
Star Trek Adult Coloring Book
Now you can boldly color the crews of the NCC-1701 and/or NCC-1701-D. As some of you know, adult coloring books are all the rage right now, and cover a vast number of geeky franchises from Game of Thrones to Outlander. Star Trek fans will no doubt have a lot of fun coloring 45 detailed black-and-white illustrations.
Picard and Data Sound Ornament
This year’s new Star Trek Hallmark Keepsake Ornament features Captain Picard sitting in the captain’s chair on the bridge of the Enterprise, with the android Data by his side. Collectors will also appreciate the fact that the ornament features dialogue from the show (all of it is battery operated, of course, with two replaceable LR44 batteries included). It also makes for a perfect stocking stuffer. Will you buy this and make it so?
The Roddenberry Vault
Over the course of TOS’s three seasons, bits of footage ended up on the cutting room floor and stored in film cans. When the show celebrated its 50th anniversary last year, the Gene Roddenberry Estate opened its vault to release this new Blu-ray set featuring 12 fan favorite episodes, cool BTS footage, deleted scenes, cut pieces of dialogue, alternate takes, glorious outtakes, and original visual FX elements.
Star Trek Schematic Duvet Cover and Pillow Cases
Star Trek fans will no doubt be looking forward to bed time and a good night’s sleep thanks to this set of schematic duvet cover and pillowcase based on the blueprints of Captain Kirk's ship, the NCC-1701. Surely the Enterprise’s Chief Engineer Montgomery “Scotty” Scott would approve of the elegant design of the Constitution class Starship recreated on this 100% cotton set.
Star Trek 5 Year Mission
Get your game on and embark on a 5-year mission aboard the USS Enterprise. What’s great about this dice game is that you can choose which crew you want to join. Will you follow Kirk, Spock and Bones? Or will you beam aboard Captain Picard’s Enterprise-D? Whichever crew you choose, you’ll have to face dangerous situations, and crewmates will have to work together to save the Enterprise against threats that could annihilate the ship.
Borg Cube Fridge
The Borg may have been one of the greatest threats the Federation has ever faced, but now you can own a re-purposed Borg cube to keep your beverages cool. Of course, this one has been miniaturized so it can fit anywhere, and the weapons have been safely deactivated. Store some Romulan Ale or your best bottle of Saurian Brandy, as well as food. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, yes, Seven of Nine has one of those in her quarters.
Klingon Bat'leth 1:1 Scale Prop Replica
If you’re in a mood to splurge, this life-size Bat'leth based on the specs used for Star Trek: The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine will be the perfect gift for the Klingon warrior in your life. Built of high-grade aircraft aluminum, the official prop features a genuine split-leather grip and comes with a 500-piece limited edition crimson cold-cast resin display stand.
VR Star Trek: Bridge Crew
Ever wanted to be in control of your very own starship? PlayStation VR’s videogame will immerse you in the Star Trek universe like no other video game has gone before. Players can serve as an officer aboard a Federation starship where the actions and decisions taken by each crew member will determine the fate of the ship and crew. No pressure there.
Star Trek: Boldly Go, Vol. 1

As they are assigned to new ships and crews, the story sees the Federation facing a new threat they’ve never encountered before (but one Star Trek fans are all too familiar with... the Borg).
