Star Trek Fragrances

Sci-Fi 169

An anonymous reader writes "I am a trek fan and excited about the new movie, but this is too much. From the Trek Movie Article: 'Genki Wear, known for its licensed science fiction jewelry and perfumes, has produced what might be the most unusual Star Trek product ever: Star Trek colognes and perfume based on the original 1960s television show. ... There are three fragrances planned for 2009 with the monikers 'Tiberius," "Red Shirt" and "Ponn Farr."'" Are they telling us we stink?

At Least It's Humorous (4, Funny)

eldavojohn (898314) | more than 5 years ago | (#27064535)

*squirts some "Red Shirt" cologne on himself*

You smell that? That's ambergris [wikipedia.org] from the original humpback whales they used in Star Trek IV:The Voyage Home [wikipedia.org] .

I will admit, though I hate the idea, at least the "Red Shirt" has some humor to it--the box has "Red Shirt: Because tomorrow may never come" on it. And the article subtitles the picture with "Live every day as if it could be your last, with 'Red Shirt' cologne." The hilarious marketing slogans basically write themselves though:
  • Be the first to investigate a hostile planet--and smell good doing it with Red Shirt cologne!
  • Let that blood sucking vampire cloud know how you roll with the wafting fragrance of Rid Shirt cologne!
  • Go out in style with the scent of Red Shirt cologne!
  • If they don't remember your name, at least they'll remember how you smelled--like Red Shirt cologne.
  • etc.

Eau de la Vag Vert!

Why was that the first place my mind went? I can picture the ad campaign now, "Is your man a Star Trek nerd? Has he always wanted to boldly go where no man has gone before? To seek out new life, and fuck it? Well now he can experience all the extraterrestrial aromas with *dramatic pause*, Eau de la Vag Vert!"

Maybe I should seek professional help. Anyone got Deanna Troi's number? :P.

The United States has jumped the shark (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 5 years ago | (#27064623)

The United States is losing its superpower status. We are slowly exiting the development phase and becoming a "real country". By this I mean immigration rates are stabilizing and we will rely more on birthrates to grow the population.

As a population growth mechanism, immigration is one of the most ideal methods. With it, we can hand pick citizens from other countries and choose the best of the best. Overseas travel was only available to the very top citizenry of other countries until recently, so it help weed out immigrants. Because they are separated from their families and because there is only a relatively weak social safety net in the United States, they are forced to work under duress to remain here. They are in fact modern day slaves. They remain here in part because it's better here than anywhere else, but that situation may be nearing an end.

Today, we have lost control of immigration and have more people than ever staying illegally in our country. These people are not necessarily the brightest or most moral individuals, and they are less stable in terms of safety nets than the past immigrants and thus are easier to exploit. These people compete with our careers, forcing us to go through constant re-education, which combined with the ever need for ever increasing specialization (and thus ever increasing amounts of education) in our economy, takes a toll on our spirits. Most of us are treading water with excessive amounts of work and fewer opportunities.

We rely on birthrates to grow the population, and the lowest class produce more offspring than the brightest individuals. Middle class whites are reproducing at levels below replacement rate, whereas welfare mothers are producing at eye popping rates. Regardless of social class, it's impossible to hand pick children and some people, even of high class, end up with mental problems.

The United States has jumped the shark in terms of our hand-picked "uber genetics", and that means we may not remain world leader for much longer. We haven't lost our knack at subjugation foreigners (whether immigrants our outsourced labor), but like slavery in the United States, that too may come to an end.

Quite honestly, I am optimistic about living in a more civilized, if less technologized, society.

It is because the movie is coming out soon, they need to capitalize and start the momentum of selling and promoting, blah, blah, blah. This one actually has some decent starring actors in it like Eric Bana. I think that might be the only reason I am going to see the movie, honestly.

I thought the Red Shirt cologne was funny! They have fragrances for everything now, even colleges are putting out scents. I maybe would buy one it smelled nice, because I am a sucker for perfume. I am actually kind of curious as to see what my school's perfume smells like, probably grilled cinnamon stickies and ice cream, well I am hoping it would smell something like that!

LOL [glamour.com]

I mean who doesn't love perfume, well unless you are allergic or are one of those over wearers, those are worst, people that dip themselves in cologne. Now that I think about it, the average Star Trek fan probably has wicked allergies so they probably should have come out with a line of hypoallergenic mild soaps and lotions! LOL

Is that targeted at starship captains that frequently date outside their species? 'Cause that seems like a pretty small market segment!

Paramount views Star Trek as a money mint... (1)

Star Trek lately has all been about the money, so I'm not terribly surprised. Especially since Star Trek is a wholly-owned property of Paramount. After all, why does everyone seem to have a different Starfleet "uniform" even though they're practically in the same time period? Or how even one series can change uniforms. It gets fans to buy more licensed goods.

Anyhow... any good fan would know what my /. userid means... so they need these fragrances:

"Scent of a Klingon" (useful to get some spare cubes around you, and other places where there is just too many people invading your personal space).
eau de Worf" - lilacs, naturally!
