Who remembers last year's StarTrek.com April Fool's Day story about a Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise Flying Disc from ThinkGeek.com? People went nuts for the story -- and the product, too. Well, it's a joke no more. The Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise Flying Disc is available now from ThinkGeek.com, and everything we said about the product in our story is true.
The Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise Flying Disc features a saucer section made of space-age plastic. The saucer section is the part you throw, just as you would a regular flying disc. However, the Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise Flying Disc also has the rest of the ship attached; it’s made of foam so as to not inhibit the ship’s airworthiness. The saucer section spins freely, and the secondary hull actually stabilizes and flies behind it. The result? A U.S.S. Enterprise you can easily throw and catch.
Priced at $24.99, the Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise Flying Disc is, as ThinkGeek.com proudly notes, the most fun you can have without anti-gravity, a bottle of Saurian brandy, and four Tribbles.
