Our Favorite Leonard Nimoy Cameos

It wasn’t a good feeling when we first heard that Leonard Nimoy was taken to the hospital, and when the news broke out that he had passed at age 83, our worst fears were realized. Sure, death does come to us all, but it still hits hard when it happens to someone you hold in […]

All a Trekkie Wants for Christmas Is a USS Reliant Artisan Replica

One caveat: a Trekkie has to have been on his best behavior all year long for Santa to give him his wish for Christmas. QMx is offering a USS Reliant Artisan Replica, known to Star Trek fans as the ship that was commandeered by none other than KHAAAAAAAAAAN! Khan Noonien Singh while the ship was […]

Get Your Buzz On With These Star Trek Drinks

You know how sometimes your days go by in a blur?  These past two weeks have been like that for me, but it’s all good.  With a little juice here and there, everything just seemed to fall right into place.  Yes, my name is Noemi Twigg, but no, I am not an alcoholic.  I do […]

Boldly Go Where Lot's Of Pizza Has Gone Before, Get In My Tummy

We don’t post a lot of “Gadgets” on Forevergeek, most of the time their “techie” but not quite “geeky” but in the case of the Star Trek Starship Enterprise Pizza Cutter it’s just a whole new level of eatery awesomeness. Available at ThinkGeek for the semi-low price of just $25, this piece of art, yeah […]

Want to Learn a New Language? Try Na'vi.

Last week, the first ever opera in Klingon was held at The Hague. Language enthusiasts can’t help but get excited about something like that, even though the idea of learning a “fake” language may seem silly to some. (Think about it though – is there really such a thing as a fake language?) Needless to […]

Need More Culture in Your Life? Watch a Klingon Opera

Going to the opera is not everyone’s cup of tea, but this new opera being showcased in The Hague (Netherlands) just might make even the staunchest “opponents” of opera go watch it.  Dubbed “u,” the opera is the first production ever to be sung completely in an alien language.  Foreign language enthusiast, are you?  Forget […]

An Embarrassment to Geeks Everywhere

This train wreck defies explanation, but here’s what I can tell you: take the theme song to Star Trek: The Next Generation, and add a singing Trekkie, in uniform — with lyrics he wrote himself. His voice is actually pretty decent. Watch for the toy Enterprise cameo that’s oh-so-realistic. It’s because of people like this […]

This Is What Would Happen If William Shatner Directed Star Trek [Video]

My favorite viral videos are those that have “characters” who may be less “character” and more real life, take for example this Star Trek fan who created his own “shout out” to the major characters of the popular TV series. With lyrics like “Here they go in a large tin can, give me warp five […]

15 Things You Didn't Know About Star Trek

I just stumbled across this infographic about Star Trek, yes another inforgraphic, and had to share it here. I’m not a Trekkie but I did watch Voyager regularly when it was on TV. I only know one fact on this list and that’s the one about William Shatner selling his kidney stone. Most notorious fact […]

Shakespeare And Geeks

April 23 is traditionally celebrated as Shakespeare’s birthday, although Shakespeare geeks would know that this day isn’t really when he was born. In fact, he died on the 23rd of April 1616. Since his exact date of birth isn’t known, this day has been designated as the celebration for his birthday. Isn’t that pretty cool? […]

The first must-have iPad app

If you’re a geek, and you have a pulse, then at one time or another, you have wanted a PADD. That’s “Personal Access Data Device,” to any non-Trekkers out there. I’m talking, of course, about the handheld computer of choice for crew members onboard the U.S.S. Enterprise. A few simple taps and gestures were all […]

Geek Baby: Onesies and Bibs

My wife and I had our first child a month ago, and I’ve been on the constant search for cool things to do with my baby. See for dads – at least for me – the baby portion of life really isn’t very eventful. After all, I’m not the baby factory, and so I’m not […]

I Guess Marvel Will License Anything: Wolverine Mouse and Keyboard

A few days ago, I brought you the glory that is the Marvel HD television lineup. That was exciting, right? I mean, who wouldn’t want a television with their favorite character printed on it? Oh wait, you wouldn’t? Well then sir or madam, I do not want to be your friend. But now there’s more. […]

Calm Shot Nerves With Furry Tribbles

I went out tonight despite a worse than usual hangover, which involved a pounding head and a queasy stomach. I do not know what I was thinking but I went ahead and indulged at a Chinese buffet (now you know how much food that involves!) and then went to a bar to watch the launch […]

Meerkats boldly go… Star Trek knitted toys

I don’t usually rave about little stuffed toy animals, but I had to post this up because it’s cute and a little bit geeky all at the same time. I love meerkats (I’ve even adopted one at London Zoo for the year), so this pair dressed up in Star Trek outfits just had to be […]

Kit out your desktop with Star Trek icons and dock

Waiting for the new Star Trek movie coming next month and want to get your desktop ready? Check out the Icon Factory’s latest collection of icons. Star Trek features a modest selection of icons, plus a few wallpapers (a bit boring IMO but there you go, that’s probably Paramount licensing issues). There’s also a special […]
