So whether you want to treat someone (on the day or later), or treat yourself, we’ve got some awesome recommendations in our Trekmas Gift Guide.

We’re kicking off with the best bargains we’ve spotted. Most of these are online and UK based, but we’ve marked link origins to help.

Forbidden Planet is a cornucopia of all things geeky, including some fantastic Star Trek merch. From Strange New Worlds t-shirts to exclusive Prodigy Murf and Rok Tahk pins. But what’s really jingling our bells at the moment is a bunch of great Trek reference hardback books at just £5 each!

FROM ADVENT CALENDAR TO MERCH BUNDLE!

We know this might feel a little late for our Trekmas Gift Guide but bare with us. Eaglemoss’ Star Trek goodie-packed Advent calendar is back on sale. It might be too late to count down the days to Christmas, but it isn’t for a bargain!

From socks to a mug and much more, that’s 24 ‘stocking stuffers’ style goodies, and all in a very cool package. A number of sites have it available, marked down from the original price of £119.99, now just £39.99.

AVAILABLE FROM:

?? Menkind, Lost Universe

TREK POPS!

We know there are a lot of Pop Vinyl fans out there! They do tend to go flying off the shelves and cause complete carnage at conventions for the rarer versions. So we couldn’t miss some bargains we spotted from our Trekmas Gift Guide!

If you’re missing the Star Trek TOS Mirror Universe Spock or Sulu, or the Khan pop, then a bunch are on sale right now.

All 3 figures are just £5 from various sites including:

??VeryNeko: Khan, Sulu, Spock

?? Zavvi: Sulu, Spock

HISTORY LESSONS

We couldn’t let this Trekmas Gift Guide pass without recommending one of this year’s really great new books! Star Trek celebrated its 56th Anniversary in 2022, a long and illustrious history. And it’s a history full of drama, twists and turns, and some very interesting people. Quite a difficult story to try and encapsulated. Author Ryan Britt has pulled it off though with both a deeply informative and highly entertaining read.

The book does not shy away from some of the more difficult parts of Trek’s story. And it also tries to peel back some of the misconceptions and popular myths, revealing the ‘hidden figures’ that helped shape Trek’s legacy. Definitely a great gift for a fan who prides themselves on knowing Trek inside out.

Available from:

Amazon UK, Amazon US, Forbidden Planet

TREK STYLIN’!

If you like to wear your fandom on your sleeve and rep with some great apparel, then check out Heroes Within Inc. We got a close-up look at their bomber jackets at NYCC and were not disappointed. The Star Trek Bombers are totally on point for the fashion-conscious.

And it’s not just bomber jackets. Hero Within Inc. now has added its whole range online. This range includes the Strange New Worlds Away Team-based jacket which was a con exclusive. Head to their website to check out the range and find out prices & shipping for your region.

BANDAI’S USS ENTERPRISE

If you fancy a USS Enterprise model gracing your collection. But don’t want to pay out crazy money, or spend hours putting one together. Then you can’t go wrong with the new Bandai model. It’s an impressive 18″ in size, nicely detailed, and has fun light and sound elements too.

They’re available from a number of sites but Amazon currently has a 17% (from their Black Friday sale).

Available from: Amazon UK
