Musings of a fandom geek

Sometimes, you’ve just got to say “The laws of time and space? Who gives a smeg?”

Suiting up…

You know, I’ve always wanted to own a Star Trek uniform.

I’m quite proud of the fact that I happen to own a screen-original uniform from season 2 of seaQuest DSV. But the Trek uniform has long eluded me. Back in the mid 90s, Rubies Costumes and Warp One were the people producing the replica uniforms. I was too young to be able to afford one back then, and I’ve always seemed to miss the command division uniforms on eBay since. Of course, a screen-original uniform would be far too expensive, as has been seen from the It’s A Wrap! auctions over the last couple of years.

Anyway, the point of this post was to note that Rubies now has the license to produce uniforms based on the new Star Trek movie, and they’re available to preorder in the UK already. And they look pretty good. There are two versions available: “Deluxe” (which makes little sense, as it’s the basic version) and “Grand Heritage”. Now, the Grand Heritage is a mite too pricey for my liking (£80), but the Deluxe (£40) just might be worth the purchase. I’ll have to see them in better detail first, though.

They can be preordered from Forbidden Planet here, with a release date of 31st July. Pictures below.
