Yesterday was Star Trek Day!! And of course there was going to be a Funko Post special!! Star Trek is an American science-fiction series which has been around for a whopping 50 years!! The first series, now referred to as the ‘original series’, made it’s debut in 1966(!) and ran for three whole seasons. Star Trek follows the galactic adventures of James T. Kirk and his crew on the Starship Enterprise, which is an exploration vessel of a 23rd century intersellar ‘United Federation of Planets’.

After the ‘original series ended the adventures continued in the short-lived Star Trek: The Animated Series as well as six feature films. Then began the four spin-off television series, The first was called Star Trek: The Next Generation, which followed the crew set a century after the original series on a new Starship Enterprise, afterwards came Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and then Star Trek: Voyager and finally we had Star Trek: Enterprise which is a prequel to the original series. Of course every series has a new film, well, The Next Generation had the addition of four feature films!! The franchise underwent a reboot with a feature film titles ‘Star Trek’ in 2009, where the original crew are portrayed younger. Since then we been given Star Trek into Darkness and the most recent Star Trek Beyond, written by fellow Trekkie, Simon Pegg!!

Star Trek has been a cult phenomenon for decades!! I mean it even has it’s own constructed language: Klingon!! It was a show ahead of it’s time  and has been noted for it’s prgressive civil rights stances as well as the original series being the first to have a multiracial cast. The franchise spans a wide range of spin-offs which include games, novels and of course toys!! Which is where the Funko’s come in!!

This is quite a collection!!! There are doubles of some characters which might make the avid Funko collector annoyed especially since Funko might have missed some key characters out from each series but they look so different and yet so similar to the actors portraying them and I doubt anyone minds that much. I have particular liking to some of the funko’s, these inlucde Orion Slave Girl (her vibrant colour is gorgeous when you see it in shops), Captain Picard because…you know…it is basically a Patrick Stewart Funko Pop, Sulu (I’m a John Cho fangirl),  Krall since the shading and colouring just looks amazing as well as the facial expression, the emotion is depicted so well with this Funko Pop and of course Scotty because everyone needs a Simon Pegg Funko Pop in their life!!
