As part of the recent “Cake: The Final Frontier – A Celebration of 50 Years of Star Trek Collaboration”, Margi Chambers of CakeArt by Margi Chambers created this incredible Phaser, Tricorder, and Communicator Cake.
Margi states that the edible items are fashioned entirely from gum paste and fondant while staying as close to original specs as possible. It was one of many amazing Star Trek creations present at the Las Vegas event. Check out additional pics below. [click to continue…]
Few season finales are as memorable as Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s season 3 closer, “The Best of Both Worlds“. Not only did it reinvent the Borg, but it ended on a high-stakes cliffhanger with Captain Picard having been assimilated into the Borg Collective and Riker giving the order to fire on his now-former commanding officer and friend. It’s a sizzling bit of telly even now, and it elevated The Next Generation from being thought of by fans as “that other Star Trek show” to being considered… well, Star Trek.
A perfect moment, then for Paul Redmond of Purple Feather Cake Design to immortalize in cake form for his entry to the Cake: The Final Frontier celebration (the same celebration that gave us that awesome chocolate Scotty bust). Opting to recreate the head of Locutus – Captain Picard’s Borg alter ego – this thing is so detailed that when the page first loaded on my computer I thought I might be looking at a makeup test from the show itself, applied to a dummy or prop head. But nope! That’s the cake!
Paul had some trouble getting the cake to Las Vegas for this year’s official Star Trek convention. ” I shipped my piece over but alas transwarp conduits haven’t been discovered yet and he didn’t quite materialize in one piece.” A shame. Good thing it didn’t happen to the real Locutus. He’ll bite your head clean off, man. Check out more photos of the cake below. [click to continue…]

Paul Joachim with The Chocolate Genius made this toothsome tribute to the greatest Starfleet engineer of all-time.
Sure, this edible bust of Montgomery Scott from Star Trek might look like it’s made from bronze, but it’s actually made from chocolate! Joachim made the sculpture for the Cake: The Final Frontier collaboration, which celebrates Star Trek‘s 50th anniversary. Check out additional pics below. [click to continue…]
In the Star Trek universe, Isolinear chips are perfect for storing large amounts of data, but they make terrible drink coasters. I mean, if you spill a little Andorian Ale on a chip, and all is lost. So, play it safe, and use these isolinear chip coasters instead. They look just like the real thing, and they’ll help prevent water rings on your captain’s chair.

Woah…WOAH! Hold up there. Only authorized personnel are allowed to operate this highly advanced “Beverage Containment System” (BCS). There’s all kinds of secret technology built into this thing, so it requires a high-level security clearance. I mean, the Starfleet insignia is in gold holographic print. Do you even know what it is capable of? DO YOU? Just prey you never find out.

We’ve already seen Planetary Glassware for the planets in our solar system and the fictional planets in Star Wars. It was easy to guess what would be next on the list.
This Star Trek Planetary Glassware Set lets you gaze upon otherworldly beauty while drinking your orange juice. Or tea, Earl Grey, hot. We’ve chosen to highlight several M-class planets: Earth, the capital planet of the United Federation of Planets, home of Starfleet Headquarters, and the location of the main branch of Starfleet Academy; Vulcan, the Vulcan homeworld and a founding member of the United Federation of Planets; Romulus, the homeworld of the Romulans and the capital world of the Romulan Star Empire; and Qo’noS, homeworld of the Klingons and the capital of the Klingon Empire. We also threw in a shot glass for good measure which resembles a Borg Cube, the primary vessel of the Borg Collective. First thing we’re doing when we get ours is filling up Romulus with some good Romulan Ale. Or possibly whatever we can find that’s drinkable and blue around the house. Not Windex.
Yes, don’t drink Windex. Try this.

Shmaltz brewing is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Star Trek with two collector’s edition beers dubbed “Golden Anniversary Ale: The Trouble With Tribbles” and “Golden Anniversary Ale: Voyage To The Northeast Quadrant”. Check out the descriptions and details below. [click to continue…]
The best part of waking up is assimilation in your cup.
Unfortunately, since you are separated from the Collective and your human physiology is asserting itself, you may be required to take in nutrients if you do not have ready access to an alcove. That is why we have provided you with a Star Trek Borg Cube Mug during your time away. It will remind you of “home” during your time with Species 5618, as well as provide you with any energy your human physiology may demand for its biological functions. We recommend you partake of caffeine, a molecule which synthesizes in a particularly effective way with humans’ cellular chemistry.
Resistance against the caffeine is futile.

This pint glass amuses me.
Indeed, Wesley Crusher could probably use a drink. But, of course, he can’t. Wil Wheaton doesn’t have to worry about that though! We need to see him enjoy a pint of W00tstout out of one of these immediately.
