For the Trekkie who has everything! Three scents of Star Trek aftershaves and perfumes have gone on sale, including 'Tiberius', the middle name of Captain James T Kirk.

Female trekkies are also catered for with the 'Ponn Farr' scent, which apparently takes its name from the Vulcan mating cycle.

Now if you're a massive Trekkie, and you want to smell just like Spock or Captain Kirk then you could be in luck after Genki have released a range of Star Trek themed fragrances.
Now if the cologne's being released wasn't enough, just check out the descriptions for the fragrances, they're nothing short of epic:
"The Tiberius cologne, named in honor of the Mirror Universe James T. Kirk's challenges users to "Boldly Go" with a perfume described as being spiked with "notes of freshness and sensuality." According to Genki Wear, the perfume has sweet citron zest, black pepper, and cedar as its top notes (top notes refers to those scents that are noticeable first) and warm vanilla, white musk, and sandalwood as its base notes (scents perceived last, usually about a half hour after application)."
"The most risqué titled of the new Star Trek fragrances is "Ponn Farr" which is a perfume designed to "drive him wild." It should only be used once every seven years (okay, that isn’t true). Named for the Vulcan mating ritual first introduced in the episode "Amok Time," this perfume is one of the newly designed products meant to appeal to female fans. More details and an image on Ponn Farr will be available soon."
"Genki's "Red Shirt" cologne (whose tag line "Because Tomorrow May Never Come" is priceless) celebrates the sacrifices of those often nameless crew of the USS Enterprise. Described appropriately as a cologne for those with a "devotion to living each day as it could be your last" the cologne has top notes of green mandarin, bergamot, and lavender, with base notes of leather and grey musk."
Mmm, base notes of leather and grey musk...Now if you're a massive Trekkie, and you want to smell just like Spock or Captain... more
Finally, what I've been waiting for all my life has arrived - a Captain Kirk bead curtain.
The 'Trekkie' responsible for the curtain used over 25,000 beads and coloured thread to make it, and is adding it to her collection of other similarly Trek-beaded wonders, which includes the Enterprise, Spock, and the holodeck.

Just like in Star Trek, a Transparent, alumiunum based armor is being optimized by engineers at Wright-Patterson AFB in Ohio.
The Product is called ALON:
"ALONtm [sic] is a ceramic compound with a high compressive strength and durability. When polished, it is the premier transparent armor for use in armored vehicles, said. 1st Lt. Joseph La Monica, transparent armor sub-direction lead
'The substance itself is light years ahead of glass, he said, adding that it offers 'higher performance and lighter weight.'
Traditional transparent armor is thick layers of bonded glass. The new armor combines the transparent ALONtm [sic] piece as a strike plate, a middle section of glass and a polymer backing. Each layer is visibly thinner than the traditional layers.
ALONtm [sic] is virtually scratch resistant, offers substantial impact resistance, and provides better durability and protection against armor piercing threats, at roughly half the weight and half the thickness of traditional glass transparent armor, said the lieutenant."Just like in Star Trek, a Transparent, alumiunum based armor is being optimized by... more
