With everything going on in the world, particularly in the US, Fansets provided some welcome relief from reality by announcing their upcoming Star Trek pins for the first and second quarters of 2021.
First up are the new pins from ‘The Original Series’ TV and Films.
We have 3 new pins from TOS. From the episode ‘The Squire of Gothos’ we have Trelayne. Admiral James T Kirk in his Monster Maroon uniform from ‘Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan’ and Dr Gillian Taylor from ‘Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home’ represent the TOS movies.
From ‘The Next Generation’ and ‘Deep Space 9’ we have 6 new pins. One of these pins was announced today as its the birthday of DS9 actor Aron Eisenberg who played Nog and passed away almost 18 months ago.
The one-season wonder, Dr Pulaski and Guinan, everyone’s favourite El-Aurian represent TNG. A Horga’hn from the planet Risa that has been seen in both TNG and DS9 makes an appearance. Finally from DS9 we have Lt Nog accompanied by two favourite Klingons, General Martok and Chancellor Gowron.
Star Trek: Enterprise has only one pin at the moment and that is of Xindi-Reptilian leader, Commander Dolin.
Star Trek: Picard brings us a new kind of pin. A two-in-one ‘couples’ pin featuring JL’s Romulan friends Laris and Zhaban will appear some time soon I hope as will Romulan bad-girl Narissa!
Two new micro-fleet pins have also been announced. From TOS we have ‘The Doomsday Machine’ and from Lower Decks we have the USS Titan.
Other special pins in the works are a set of Emoji pins as seen on Twitter when using the various Star Trek hashtags.
To go with the micro-fleet USS Titan pin, Fansets are also releasing pins of Mr & Mrs Troi themselves, Captain Wil Riker and Deanna Troi.
Lastly, from Star Trek: Discovery we have everyone’s favourite cranky, candy-munching engineer, Jett Reno and newcomer for Season 3 Cleveland “Book” Booker.
Don’t forget, all these pins will be available at some point during the first and second quarters of the year.
Also revealed by Fansets was this image of some upcoming pins including a raft of new character pins from both Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard as well as the latest ‘Women of Trek’ pin with Nurse Christine Chapel. Lastly we have the first 3 Star Trek: Picard episode pins.
I’m looking forward to getting the Owo and Nilsson character pins as well as the Jurati pin for sure.
