Gifts fit for a Trekkie

Star Trek fans, if you've ever wanted to sit in the Captain's Chair or hold a Starfleet Phaser, check out this TechRepublic gallery to see how you can make your wishes come true.

In honor of this week's Star Trek Convention (held August 5 -8, 2010 in Las Vegas), Geekend contributor Wally Bahny compiled a list of 20 collectibles from The Online Star Trek Store that you may want to purchase for yourself or for a gift to a fellow Trekkie.

If you attend the Star Trek Convention, you might be able to get William Shatner to autograph your box of Tiberius Cologne for Men or request that Leonard Nimoy sign the box of your Tree Star featuring Spock. If you cannot make it to the event, you can always sit in your Captain's Chair replica (which will run you approximately $3,100) and imagine the conversations you would have had with Patrick Stewart, George Takei, Julie Newmar, and the other guests scheduled to attend.

See all of the items featured in the TechRepublic gallery, Star Trek collectibles for the ultimate Trekkie.
