Best budget Star Trek gifts
Star Trek communicator
Prepare to beam up with this replica of the iconic Star Trek communicator.
This replica is based on the design from The Original Series, where the crew communicated using devices that would one day inspire the creation of the flip phone.
With flashing lights as well as sounds from the show to fully emulate the original props, as well as a 48-page booklet on the history of the communicator with full colour photos from TOS, you’ll always be ready to head out on an away mission to whatever new planet you’ve come across – just remember not to wear your red shirt if you want to make it back alive.

“Raktajino to go” Star Trek Deep Space 9 mug
- Buy now from Forbidden Planet (£8.99).
Keeping the peace on the edge of a wormhole can be thirsty work, which was probably why Captain Benjamin Sisko was always making his drink order to go.

Mugs bearing the drinks orders of Captain Picard ("Earl Grey, hot") and Captain Janeway ("Coffee, black") are also available.
