If you're a Trek fan-girl, like me, or just know one....here are a couple of new Trek clothing items that may interest you. In honor of Star Trek Into Darkness' release Her Universe has unveiled a new TOS inspired Command Gold dress and a new v-neck T-shirt with Kirk's iconic scream, "KHAAAAAAAN!" featured prominently, for the proud Trek fan in your life.
Here's what Her Universe says about the new goodies:
I have often wondered that myself. Granted, I don't stockpile quadrotriticale or visit space station K-7 on a regular basis. So, how could I possibly figure out the amount of tribbles that would fit in my domicile? Well, that's were the folks at Movto.com come in. They just released a handy calculator that determines the amount of tribbles that will fit in your home based on the dimensions of the average tribble, the rate at which they breed, and the dimensions of a building (square feet).

Microsoft's Bing search engine just released new Trek specific features in anticipation of the May 17th release of Star Trek Into Darkness. Working closely with Klingon language creator Mark Orkrand and the Klingon Language Institute, Bing now lets you translate from English to Klingon and back again...all to your eight chambered heart's content. Two dialects are available Klingon & Klingon (Kronos). Maybe some of our Klingon fans can tells us the difference. The new translation feature is available via the web and as an update to Bing Translator for Windows Phone 8.

That’s right you guys, the old girl is struttin’ her stuff in this gorgeous new poster by artist Mark Brayer, and published by Bye Bye, Robot. U.S.S. Enterprise is the second poster in Brayer’s vintage ships series for Bye Bye, Robot. Brayer’s love of book cover art from the mid to late 1900s is the basis for the retro design of this new ship’s portrait poster.
Just like the header says, there's a new Star Trek Into Darkness trailer out today, and whoa Nellie, it's a doozie. I can't wait to get my peepers on this movie! ...like you didn't know...
What I didn't mention in the title is that the Kirk poster is finally released making the Into Darkness posters an even four. You can check them out here.
