CBS Consumer Products announced that it would be expanding its Star Trek merchandising program, and Star Trek fans will be the beneficiaries, with plenty of new and exciting products to be offered.

As reported by CBS Consumer Products, CBS Consumer Products is aiming at the same new generation that Star Trek XI is and will have plenty of products ranging from games and toys to home decor. "The momentum is building for the 'Star Trek' brand as we approach the new feature film this May," said Liz Kalodner, executive vice president and general manager of CBS Consumer Products. "We are excited to continue our focus on expanding the 'Star Trek' universe and bringing the whole franchise to a new generation."

Toys will be offered by current partners and by two new ones. Mattel will be offering a line of Barbie collector dolls, a Scene It? DVD game and a 20Q Star Trek trivia game. New partners USAopoly and Fundex will offer Trek-themed products. USAopoly will create a Star Trek Monopoly edition and Fundex will offer Star Trek UNO, Scrabble, Magic 8 Ball, Phase 10 and All About Trivia.

  • Funko: bobbleheads, vinyl figures
  • Briefly Stated: sleepwear, loungewear
  • E.S. Originals: kids footwear, bags, accessories

I just hope that all this merchandising doesn't come back to haunt us.

Wow...all this stuff coming out...it reminds me of the early-to-mid 90s. Paramount must really have faith in this movie.

That being said, I we get a Star Trek Clue game out of this.

Are you suggesting a haunted house with spooky Star Trek merchandise? That sounds terrific!

No, I get it.
The Phantom Menace flooded the toy stores so badly, there were still Jar-Jar frisbees in the clearance bin adorned with his vacant smile by the time Attack of the Clones came out.

Any word on a contract with a cellphone maker/provider? I want a communicator that has direct connect features!

Educated guesses?

Tiberius = the sweet smell of Kirk-sweat after fighting a guy in a lizard suit

Red Shirt = the acrid stench of singed velour

Pon Farr = I'd describe it, but this is a family BBS, right?
