Beam Yourself Up Into Another World With These Star Trek Costumes
Star Trek is one of the longest running science fiction entertainment franchises in history. Gene Roddenberry created the original Star Trek television series for American audiences. The original show was on air for three seasons, starting in 1966. It was about the interplanetary adventures of the Starship Enterprise, headed by Captain James Kirk (portrayed by Hollywood icon William Shatner) and the Federation crew. Six movies and an animated TV series continued the original series’ storyline.
There were four other television shows produced, centering on different sets of characters. Star Trek: The Next Generation occurred several decades after the original series, with Jean-Luc Picard, the Starship Enterprise’s current captain played by the venerable Patrick Stewart. The stories of Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine happened within the same time frame, and were led by commanding officers Kathryn Janeway (played by Kate Mulgrew) and Benjamin Sisko (portrayed by Avery Brooks). Four subsequent feature films were made about the crew of Star Trek: The Next Generation. A revival of the original Enterprise characters was seen in a 2009 movie.
The Star Trek franchise also comprised hundreds of books, several computer games, various merchandise lines, and a Las Vegas attraction centered on the mythos.
If you want to channel your inner Trekkie, you can dress up in so many costume styles to fit any age and size. There are costumes from the recent Star Trek movie, as well as The Next Generation series. The Next Generation allows you to dress up as any of the famous Enterprise crew: the human Captain Picard, android Data, and Klingon Worf, all in Starfleet garb. You can even capture the spirit of the original series as Kirk, Dr. McCoy, Uhura, Chekov, Scotty, Sulu, and the pointy-eared Vulcan, Spock.
You can also wear outfits from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and play the part of the Cardassian spacefarer or station officers Captain Sisko, alien Officer Odo, and so many more. You can also dress up as Commander Chakotay or Captain Janeway, or that annoying bartender from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. The newest Star Trek movie iteration can let you wear updated outfits from the original series, and bring back Scotty, Bones, Uhura, Captain Kirk, or Nero from the JJ Abrams film.
Complete your Star Trek outfit with various accessories, such as phasers, communicators, and official Star Trek badges and pins.
Whether you want to garb yourself in the clothing of a human, Vulcan, Klingon, android, or anything and everything else in between, you can find the Star Trek costume that’s right for you.
