Already ordered mine!
Fifteen dollars plus shipping? Sounds a little steep for a 5-1/2" piece of black and chrome plastic, but then it's basically a hand-made, low-volume product. I hope the guy who's making and selling these things hasn't quit his day job.
^^ That depends whether the OP has any financial interest in or connection with the product, doesn't it? Although a bit more of a substantial comment wouldn't hurt.
So very, very far from it.

NO interest at all in this - personal or financial. Just a fan who something he thought his fellow Trek fans would like. In fact, this was the first time I was ever on Etsy... got directed to this from the good folks at I Live and Breathe Star Trek.
15 bucks is NOT bad for something that is hand made and yes, a unique concept. He also has cool ones like MST3K, TARDIS, and even GOJIRA. It sure beats the awful 'Darwin' things -it is VERY subtle! I love the idea of someone following me, looking at that, and if they are not immediately Trek savvy, wondering about it. Then maybe the light bulb going on over their head..
And the guy following you thinks "NCC-1701? WTF? Oh yeah, Star Trek. Frickin' nerd."
That's HIS problem
Better than following a damn prius with an Obama2012 bumper sticker. Trekkies never took any money out of my pocket.
I fail to see what your personal politics have to do with this topic.
Unless you bought the "Trekkies" DVD.
It's okay to show support for Trek that way, but something a little more original would be nice.
Back when I still had my white 1973 Mustang, I sat down one day and wondered what I could do with it to tie it in with Star Trek. I never actually did anything, but one of the ideas I had was to completely re-do the tail lights, using the Enterprise insignia as a basis. The arrowhead in red as brake light, star in white as the back-up light, and ring around it in amber as turn signal. With the right materials, you could change any vehicle's tail lights to that setup.
If you're going to Trekifiy your car, go big:
I already have the Starfleet Academy decal in the rear window. I don't want to encourage truckers to actively chase me down, pull me over and give me a wedgie.
I wouldn't mind having the "TARDIS" one. But I'd need a blue car, ideally.
