Star Trek Enterprise Bottle Opener

Friday, September 24th, 2010

Recently, TrekToday reported on a unique merchandise item, an Enterprise pizza cutter. Today,  another Enterprise-based item can be purchased which will complement the pizza cutter, an Enterprise bottle opener, perfect for cracking open a bottle of Romulan ale to go with a slice of pizza.

The officially licensed Star Trek Bottle Opener is modeled on the NCC-1701. Four and 3/4 inches long, the bottle opener weighs five and a half ounces. The Enterprise bottle opener has a shiny chrome finish, with “U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701″ printed on the hull.

The bottle opener sells for $19.99 and can be purchased here. In a pinch, the heavy bottle opener can be used as a weapon “if diplomatic relations fail you,” but purchasers are encouraged not to use them against Klingons. “They’re more likely to laugh at you. Thick skulls, don’t you see.”

Chambliss On Designing the Future’s Past

Wednesday, March 11th, 2009

Production Designer Scott Chambliss wasn’t sure that working on a franchise with such a long history would be the best thing for him.

As reported by, from an article in Sci Fi Now, while Chambliss wanted to work with J.J. Abrams, he was leery of Star Trek‘s baggage. “My reaction was really all over the place,” he explained. “Of course I wanted to do J.J.’s next movie and I was excited that it was something we’d never done before. But at the same time, I also felt a lot of trepidation because of all of the history and baggage that the franchise has. That was a little troubling, but then we figured out how we had to approach it and moved forward. From a creative standpoint, there’s a real difference between approaching a piece of new material that doesn’t have any history and expectation based on what’s come before, and this only has history and expectation. It’s got a fervent group of believers in the material and there’s just so much that you had to be aware of beforehand in terms of what’s come before, which had to be considered before we even approached how we might want to do this newer version.”
