I'm going to go ahead and put this out there, because I'm not seeing it anywhere. Star Trek II comes out in May, and I would love to see a swap for it. I'm a big trekkie or trekker (I don't care which one I'm called, I like them both) but I've missed all the other Star Trek swaps.

I'm thinking a 4 point swap, but I'm open to ideas and suggestions. I just really would like to have the swap in time for the movie release.



Anyone else interested?

As the mom in a family of Geeks, I'm not sure it would be easy to pass on a Trek swap.  Too many fun things to make!

I already commented on a Tiny Avengers Swap, but I might be interested in this one too! (I can only be part of one swap at a time because it's my first swap, so I can't promise I'll be part of this one; definately interested though!)

I'd be up for this!!!

I was just blown away by the reboot movie.
I have much love for the original series and TNG too.

Lol, silentblair, I love that scene!

When would be a good start time? I was thinking Sometime in March, send outs in April? I mainly just want to be sure that everyone could receive before the movie in May.

Also, all Treks would obviously be free game Smiley TNG is my personal favorite (it was the first one I saw) but I really enjoy them all. My sister and I are even planning on going as Vulcans to the midnight premiere. Cheesy

Eiseldora:
That is one stellar stitch job, I love it!

Miss Sadie Mae: Benedict would be a great entry into the world of Trek (he's dreamy  Wink).

This swap must be fate because just before you posted this I was looking at my pinterest.
I noticed quite a few Star Trek-esque pins that were scattered all over my boards.
My project was to create a whole board just for Trek love.
My non-Trek followers probably hate me for repinning so much and filling up their feed for a few roads.  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

The March/April dates totally work for me. YAY!

@MissSadieMae: That is a perfectly logical reason to join, lol! I can't wait to see him.
@Eiseldora: That is a seriously awesome piece! I wonder if I can convert that idea to crochet... Te-he!
@silentblair: That settles it. It's clearly meant to be. I think I'm going to go and raid Pinterest now to see what Star Trek pins I can find. *Evil Q laugh*

The picture is of a Pot Holder. I've been wanting to knit a Pot Holder for a long time. Unfortunately the technique was a bit difficult (Double Knitting). I don't get to keep it Sad. Its on its way to a friend.

Okay, did anyone else see the super short but still awesome Star Trek trailer during the superbowl? I'm now more convinced than ever that it's going to be Gary Mitchell, not Khan who is the villian. (The blond who looks like Elizabeth Dehner also makes me think it's that.) Any other theories out there?

Also, Any body know of cool Trek inspired crafts? I found an awesome tutorial for how to make a tri deck chess board.

OOH I'd love that tute! I was wondering about Trek inspired crafts too. I'm a big Star Trek fan but the only crafts I know of  just have the insignia on them. Maybe that's why there should be a swap, so we can think of cool ideas!

I have not done a swag in a long while but this would definitely be very tempting! I agree there definitely is a need for more Trek crafting out there...Smiley

Here's the link to build the board : http://www.therpf.com/f9/star-trek-3d-chess-set-build-finished-132541/

and here's a link to the rules: http://www.chessvariants.org/3d.dir/startrek.html

Here are the swap galleries from previous swaps:

I hope that helps get the creative juices flowing. Cheesy  I think it's sad that you see so little stuff from the Star Trek world. It's such a rich universe with so many creatures, traditions, and ships, that the crafting possibilities should be endless. We definitely need to increase the amount of crafted Star Trek items!

Also, does anyone have any good ideas for questions to put on the questionairre?

I'd totally be down for this!! Apparently they just released a bluray version of several of the seasons, so my husband has been watching TNG all over again just to keep him from wanting to get bluray XD

I love TNG so much! I'm having to really fight to keep myself from actually buying the bluray versions myself. I'm  actually working on making a jacket like the ones they wear in the movie First Contact. I've always thought they looked incredibly neat, and warm. My sewing machine is currently on the fritz though, so I'm mostly working on the pattern right now.

I'm not sure if I will have time, but I might be interested in this.

What would you be thinking for item numbers/size?

So many ways to go with Trek.  Re-introduced Goose to it, he is taking to it a little more than I expected.  Last night's conversations involved how much he like Q and questions about why people were going to be naked at Troi's wedding.

kjlutz: I'm thinking a four point swap with extras allowed if your partner consents. I don't want people to feel pressured to do extras or feel bad because someone sent them extras and they didn't make any for their partner.

I'm going to open the swap up in a few days (March 1st) and then keep the sign ups open for a week or so. I'm going to try and post a few Star Trek crafts and recommend the swap. Maybe I can interest some other trek lovers into joining us Cheesy

The dates for the actual swap will be March 9th (at the latest) till April 15th... does that seem long enough to everyone? Should I extend it? Shorten it? Try something all together different?

Also, is anyone thinking about going to see The Next Generations: "The Best of Both Worlds" in theaters on April 25th?

Any thoughts on setting it up based on item size and number instead of points?

Well, I can make it a requirement that you have to make a medium or a large, but I'd rather not make it a specific one, if that makes sense. If you make a large, you need to make a small to go with it. You can make two mediums, or a medium and two smalls. Does that make sense?

that sounds like a good way to do it, some requirement with some flexibility.

Red Alert everyone!!

Jk. I couldn't resist Smiley I'll be opening the swap up tomorrow and keeping it open for signups until the ninth. If you have any cool Star Trek crafts now would be a great time to post them and spread the info about this swap. I'll be posting two or three projects myself. In the mean time:

Live long and prosper!
