Lay in a course for nerd heaven, gadget fans, because we're taking you there at maximum warp. A limited-edition computer keyboard transports your computer to the final frontier, depicting the USS Enterprise bearing Captain Kirk, Spock, McCoy and the crew of Star Trek: The Original Series through a nebula.

The USB TOS keyboard has been printed with a secret-formula metallic ink, no less.

Manufacturer Keyscaper also makes a range of wireless mouses featuring the crew, or you can opt for fingering Captain James T Kirk's sexeh face as you click, scroll and scan for life signs.

If you're not much of a Trekkie, Keyscaper also offers Marvel Comics characters including Iron Man, Spiderman, Wolverine, Thor and Captain America, and gung-ho gizmos themed around the US Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard.

The Star Trek mouse costs $40 (£25), and the limited-edition keyboard costs $90 (£57).

Other Star Trek gadgets include the Nokia communicator, full-sized Captain's chair, and a range of gizmos from Tricorder MP3 players to Red Shirt cologne.
