In an inter-office email this afternoon, our newly published sex columnist Bethany Perryman demanded that I feature the following product in our ongoing series of Stuff You Need. And I couldn’t agree more. This Star Trek Limited Edition Titanium Spork might be the coolest item that we’ve featured thus far. Check out the official description from the kids at ThinkGeek:
When you walk onto the Enterprise to report for duty, you are handed a number of things: your room assignment, your phaser, your communicator, and your titanium spork. We kid you not. We’ve always told folks that the titanium spork was the utensil of the future, and now (after a freak transporter accident sent a few crates to our warehouse) we have the proof to um, well, prove it. The Star Trek Limited Edition Sporks are the official sporks of the USS Enterprise, and they have the laser engravings to prove it!
You can’t argue with that kind of logic. Each spork is individually numbered — they are only making 1701 — and is a fully licensed Star Trek collectible. Find out more over at ThinkGeek, the exclusive purveyor of all things awesomely geeky.
