Are you the kind of person who goes around all day wearing a Star Trek
uniform? We kind of hope not. But if you've ever secretly wanted to be able to do that with a legitimate excuse... well, we can't totally help you there, but you can at least have an opportunity to wear the badge for a bit. Shacknews has reported
that the collector's edition of Star Trek Online
from many retailers, including GameStop
, will include a high-quality die-cast replica of the MMO's ubiquitous communicator badge.
For the few of you not familiar with the series, the insignia and communicator is a constant feature of the shows and films. Star Trek Online
is sporting a new badge design, similar to the badge in the original series
but with a slightly off-center bottom indent. Those of you not immediately familiar with the series, aside from being fortunate, can simply be amused at the prospect of having a rather unique souvenir for the upgraded purchase. The game launches on February 12th, 2010
, so now is the time to decide if you'd like to be able to wear the badge.
