What better place to buy a Star Trek gift than from the man who played Captain James T. Kirk? Shatner’s store isn’t that old, but it has interesting and hard-to-find items at unbeatable prices…well, with the exception of some of the props. Those can get fairly pricey. Things do tend to sell out pretty fast so you want to jump on something you see if you really want it, but some of the most hard to find items can be found at Shatner’s Store.
One of my favorite items is the book 50 Year Mission: The First 25 Years. It’s defined as “…a no-holds-barred oral history of five Trekkie decades, told by the people who were there. Hear from the hundreds of television and film executives, programmers, writers, creators and cast as they unveil the oftentimes shocking story of Star Trek’s ongoing fifty-year mission – a mission that has spanned from the classic series to the animated show, the many attempts at a relaunch through the beloved feature films.” And the best part? It’s only $6.75.
There is a section called “Shatner’s Archives” that holds extra-special treasures you can acquire like a1987 Mardis Gras Doubloon featuring Mr. Shatner’s as King Bacchus of Mardis Gras, a 1991 Hollywood Walk of Fame Card featuring Shatner, and a Rawcliffe 1993 Ensign Chekov Pewter Sculpture. Most of these are one of a kind items, and once sold are gone forever. But imagine the looks on the Star Trek fan who gets one of these under their Christmas tree?
