You too can be wet and nerdy with Star Trek wetsuits

Star Trek wetsuitYou thought the waffles weren't enough? Now it's possible for deep sea divers to get their geek on with these Star Trek wetsuits available at Roddenberry.com. Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry was pretty good as the whole "selling out" thing upon the success of the series, so it's likely he would have approved of these items. Possibly he would have even incorporated them into the show.

If you see anyone wearing these wetsuits, then you can at least conclude that they're fairly wealthy nerds given the $470 price tag. If they have the guts to wear them in the first place then they're doing so well that they don't care what other people think. No doubt if this product is successful, wetsuit versions for Star Trek: The Next Generation will be released at some point in the future.

The red one should come with a warning label. "If you wear this suit, there is a higher chance of getting eaten by a shark, drowning or accidental harpooning."

Wikipedia actually has a "redshirt" entry:

The marketers of this product have no excuse if the red wetsuit doesn't sell well! Hahahaha!

Brilliant!!! If I lived near the ocean still and got brave enough to face the failure of me surfing I would totally buy one of these.
And seriously christy that is lame.
