Trekkers Are The Most Passionate Fans
Trekkers are some of the most passionate fans in geek culture. They can quote their favourite lines, debate their favourite episodes, and argue over hypothetical situations. They have their differences, but they are all wildly passionate about Star Trek. This passion is great news when you’re buying a gift. If you buy them something related to Star Trek, you know they’re going to love it, and love showing it off to their Trekker friends.
Sci Fi Toys For Young And Old
Sometimes people fall into the trap of thinking toys are only for kids. They could not be more wrong. Sure, kids love these Star Trek and sci fi toys. But adult Trekkers love them too. There’re some things, some passions, some TV show, that you just don’t grow out of. Star Trek is one of them. That’s why 5 year olds, 15 year olds, 35 year olds, and even 75 year olds are excited to receive these sci fi toys.
The Unusual Inspiration For The Vulcan Salute
Together, the saying “Live Long and Prosper” and the Vulcan salute are an iconic part of Star Trek culture. However, the salute was not originally written into the show. It was added by Leonard Nimoy himself.
Nimoy explained, “For what would soon become known as the Vulcan salute, I borrowed a hand symbol from Orthodox Judaism. During the High Holiday services, the Kohanim (who are the priests) bless those in attendance. ... When I searched my imagination for an appropriate gesture to represent the peace-loving Vulcans, the Kohanim’s symbol of blessing came to mind.”
He continued, “Later, I inserted it into Star Trek. There was a scene in one episode that needed something. People were seeing other members of the Vulcan race for the first time, and I thought it called for a special gesture.”
