James Covenant used clips from Star Trek: The Next Generation to create this delightful minute-long video in which Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his intrepid crew sing “Let It Snow!” If you’re a fan of TNG, there are lots of familiar faces here, but it’s Wesley Crusher’s big scene that takes the cake.

We’ve seen so many fantastic examples of pumpkin carving this Halloween season, and they just keep coming. Here’s another: Alex Wer, artist and self-proclaimed Pumpkin Geek, created this awesome jack-o’-Lantern depicting the USS Enterprise in pursuit of the Millennium Falcon. Who would emerge victorious from such a mighty showdown?
Visit the Pumpkin Geek gallery to view many more of Alex’s geektastic jack-o’-lanterns.
Canadian artist François Chatier creates awesome photorealistic paintings, like the pop-culture still lifes pictured here. His work is so convincing that, as we take in all the details, we have to keep reminding ourselves that these are acrylic paintings and not photographs.
Visit François Chatier’s website to view many more examples of his astonishing artwork.

Rob Wixey built this awesome USS Enterprise soapbox racer for the Red Bull Soapbox Race, which takes place at the Alexandra Palace in London on Sunday, July 14, 2013. In the meantime, Rob recently piloted his one-man spacecraft to the London premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness.
Assisted by three equally geeky friends, Rob spent two months building the magnificent
wvessel in his backyard. The soapbox ship measure 2 meters (6.5 ft) long with an internal steel framework welded to half of a bicycle. The bike’s handlebars were inverted to make steering easier. The ship’s body was built and shaped using plywood and polystyrene, which was then coated in fiberglass and painted. She’s a beautiful ship.
What at first looks like nothing more than a particularly fine model of the USS Enterprise, is actually a custom-made Star Trek transformer. This is the Autobot E USS Enterprise Transformer and we think it’s pretty awesome.

Jenny Sparks and her husband Lars made brilliant use of a pair of our Giant Googly Eyes here in Seattle last weekend at the Emerald City Comicon. They mounted the eyes on a stick and asked cosplayers to pose for photos with them. The results are nothing short of awesome. Even our own underpants-wearing squirrel got in on the action.
The photos you see here are just the tip of the iceberg. Click here to view the complete set.
