This box ships bi-monthly and is always accompanied by a theme. This month’s theme was Warp Speed!
Live Long and Warp Speed Shirt – Value $15?
This month’s exclusive shirt brings together the theme and the most famous Star Trek motto out there.
Solar System Planetarium – Value $10 on Amazon
The next item is a model planetarium. This really brings back some grade school science fair project memories.
It’s completely DIY – including some sanding and painting to get the best possible planetarium.
It includes everything you need to get going!
You’ll be able to get some information on planets in the booklet as well.
Galaxy Night Light – Value $7 on Amazon
The next item is a galaxy night light.
It’s a simple design with a galaxy design that clips onto your night light.
Captain’s Log Notebook – Value $8 on Amazon
This is a great inclusion for a Star Trek/Galaxy themed box – your very own Captain’s Log!
This is a little 5 x 3 1/2″ notebook. I love that it has Stardate and Location listed on each page – add a little Star Trek to your to-do list!
Spock Ears – Value $6 on Amazon
Add even more Star Trek to your everyday tasks by doing them while wearing Spock’s ears!
These were actually pretty comfortable to wear – they simply slide onto the outer edge of your ear.
Star Trek LED Watch – Value $15
One of the bigger ticket items was a hidden watch face LED watch. Simply press the watch face to reveal the LED digits.
I’ve received a couple of hidden watch face watches in the past year of subscription boxes. It’s made of a flexible material, which makes it comfortable to wear.
Star Trek #59 – Value $3.99
The last item is issue #59 of the ongoing Star Trek IDW run. It’s also an exclusive variant cover for Supply Pod!
Verdict: This was a fun month of Star Trek from Supply Pod! I thought there was a pretty good mix of science and Star Trek, and my values came to $65 – which is good for the cost of the box. This month’s box feels like it’d be a good way to bond with your kid over your love of Star Trek – combined with the solar system kit – I can see a fun box for box kids and parents this month.
