This looks amazingly uncomfortable

If you’re looking for the really unique gift for the scifi fan in your life — and you have a lot of spare cash lying around — Syfy Blastr has the perfect gift list.  Not a single item on this list is below $10,000, so for most of us it’ll remain a fun list to contemplate and dream about.  Included on the list are both a life size Cylon an Boba Fett, a Game of Thrones throne and a “real” full size stargate.

You can view all 16 gifts as well as their outrageous price tags on Blastr.

Star Trek: Into Darkness Official Synopsis

November 27, 2012 at 1:20 pm | Posted in Movies, Star Trek | 1 Comment

J.J. Abrams has finally released an official synopsis for his new Star Trek movie.

When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.

With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.

As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

So not a lot to go on, but at least it’s something.  Star Trek Into Darkness is due in theaters May 17, 2013
