Long-time Trek fans and Grandmothers looking for gifts around the globe are rejoicing: a new a new pin celebrating Star Trek: The Next Generation 30th anniversary is set to go on sale in April 2017.

The new pin will join the ranks of over 80 other Trek-themed styles and designs on sale.
All of these wonderful and beautifully designed pins are created by artists over at Fansets.
According to their ‘About Us‘ page, Fansets “are committed to creating a complete collection of characters in every science fiction or comic book universe we dive into.”
And they do indeed live up to the hype. Fansets currently offers pins for DC comics, Firefly, Star Trek, and Harry Potter; each with 100’s of unique looks and designs.
Star Trek: The Next Generation debuted on September 28th, 1987.
With the huge success of TNG, it’s likely that this won’t be the last ‘30th Anniversary‘ themed item to go on sale this year.
In fact, I would suspect that almost all Trek-related enterprises (heh, see what I did there?) will be looking to capitalize on this monumental milestone for the famed series.
Personally, I’m looking forward to whatever TNG themed event ‘Star Trek Online’ is planning on running. Maybe a few guest stars like ‘Brent Spiner‘ or ‘Johnathan Frakes’ to help boost the hype and bring in more fans.
Imagine if they were able to secure ‘Sir Patrick Stewart‘? #bringmepicard
And also maybe getting the TNG Blu-ray boxset for a discounted price.
