It’s never too early to begin the holiday shopping, and fans of Star Trek merchandise will have plenty from which to choose with the release of several new Star Trek-themed items with the promise of more to come.
The items include: a series of posters, a Precious Moments figurine, a starship keychain and a gold-foil trading card collection.
One of the items now available comes from the Danbury Mint. The Star Trek Gold Card collection includes sixty 22kt paper-backed gold-foil trading cards which feature both characters and vessels from the Star Trek televised series and the movies through 2009’s Star Trek XI.
The collection begins with a Commander Spock gold card, and a collector’s album in which to store future cards. These can be obtained for a modest $1.90 shipping and service fee. Future cards, shipped monthly, will sell for $12.99 each. To order the Spock card and to see what other cards will be available, head to the link located here.
Next up is what is billed as a “twenty-month-long Trek treat,” the first of eighty movie-style posters based on each episode, including the first pilot, of the original series.
The retro-style art posters are created by artist Juan Ortiz and will be sold in the U.S. and Canada by Quantum Mechanix (QMx) and in the U.K. by Pyramid. Other countries will also be selling the posters shortly.
Four posters will be released every month, beginning this month with the release of posters from The City on the Edge of Forever, The Ultimate Computer, Dagger of the Mind and The Way to Eden. The US versions of the posters measure 18×24 and the set of four will sell for $34.95. In the UK, the posters will be available on wood £39.99 (43x59cm) and £49.99 (45x76cm), on Canvas for £59.99 (60x80cm) and as framed art prints at £49.99 (60x80cm).

Another new series will be of interest to Trek fans who are also fans of Precious Moment figurines. The first in a new series of figurines have been released, and it features Captain Kirk. “To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before” is four-and-a-half inches high, and will sell for $29.99. Created by Sam Butcher, the figurine will be available in the U.S., Canada, U.K. New Zealand and Australia.
The figurines will be available individually, or fans may purchase them by subscription from the Hamilton Collection. Future releases will include Spock, McCoy, Uhura and more!
Finally, a new Star Trek keychain will be released this fall. The QMx keychain features a “screen-accurate” Star Trek Enterprise-D replica.
Made from a zinc-steel alloy with a pewter finish, the Enterprise-D keychain will sell from $11.95. To join the pre-order waiting list, head to the link located here.
