Although this Star Trek Black Jacket (via ThinkGeek) is a tribute to the original series, it’s also a shout out to the reboot, since it’s similar to the black uniform undershirts in the Kelvin Timeline.
However, it’s most definitely an over-shirt, which we Earthlings more frequently call a “jacket.” Bring it with you to the movie theater when the next Star Trek movie comes out. You never know how cold they’re going to be. Hang it on the back of your chair at your desk, just in case.
It has lots of nice details. For example, the embossed “NCC-1701” across the back. Simple yet stylish. It also has a 50th Anniversary Starfleet logo on the zipper pull and around the waist.
Who says you can’t show off your favorite geekdom and be classically stylish at the same time?
Better yet, toss it in your landing party’s bag to cover up that red shirt. You know, just to be safe. Red seems to anger the fates in the Star Trek universe. Well, at least until the 24th century. After that, red seems just fine.
If the Kelvin timeline just isn’t your style, you can always go with the TNG-Style Star Trek Jackets available in different colors.
