Benedict Cumberbatch is pretty tasty just as he is, but turned into chocolate he’s irresistible. This incredible chocolate Star Trek: Into Darkness chocolate art has everyone’s favorite detective turned villain turned chocolate.
DeLancey Direct Incorporated is set to unleash bottles of Vulcan Ale all over Canada on May 1st as a specialty brew created specifically for Vulcan Alberta’s 2013 centennial celebrations.
Vulcan Ale will be a high-quality handcrafted Irish Red Ale that promises to explore a new universe of taste,” Vern Raincock, founder and CEO of DeLancey Direct, said in a statement.
Unfortunately, for the time being that new universe will only be accessible north of the border.
Cooking will never be a chore when you have these nerdy cookbooks in your kitchen. There’s something here for every nerd, no matter what your fandom. We’ve got Star Wars, Game of Thrones, and Harry Potter just to name a few. Get ready to cook a feast fit for a King, or a Klingon, it’s up to you.
Etsy shop “ApocalypseFab” is offering this set of 4 Star Trek coasters made from 3/16” thick 1018 carbon steel and featuring two gold (Command), two blue (Sciences and Medical), and one Red Shirt design.
After they are cut, each coaster is hand finished with a grinder so the finish will vary with each coaster and set. After the grinding process, the coasters are coated with a clear coat for added protection from the elements.
However, it’s important to keep in mind that that protection doesn’t stand up to the harsh environment of your dishwasher.

Class up your cupboards with this set of six Star Trek The Original Series Fine Art Shot Glasses; they’re coming soon to the Nerd Approved Shop!
The retro style art is from the Star Trek TOS Art Program. Each glass focuses on an episode of the series, and they are all beautiful. These might be the kind of glasses you want to leave on display instead of actually using. Also, they should come with a warning that you’ll probably want to collect all the sets.
Order now and receive your glasses in April. Start stocking up on Romulan Ale now.
Far from providing inter-ship communication in the 22nd century, this gingerbread variation on the Star Trek communicator will only work to send messages to your brain and stomach that say “eat me”. Here’s how it was made:
I cut out the pattern pieces on thick card paper and then used that to cut out the cookie pieces. I froze the dough before cooking as this helps it keep its shape. I used royal icing (1 egg white, add icing sugar until the desired consistency is reached) for all decorations, as well as for gluing the pieces together. Toothpicks and scrunched up pieces of plastic wrap are both very useful to use as prop-ups while waiting for the royal icing to dry when gluing the pieces together.
You may remember that artist Juan Ortiz recently embarked on a mission to create a retro-style print for every episode of Star Trek: The Original Series. Now the prints have been converted into four sets of shot glasses that cover episodes 9, 28, 53, and 75 (set 1); 2, 14, 59, and 66 (set 2); 27, 36, 44 and 70 (set 3); and 1, 7, 24, and 47 (set 4).
Hit the jump to check out additional pics, and look for the sets to drunkenly stagger into the Nerd Approved Shop sometime in April.
