Here’s today’s flashback: In it’s 70’s rebirth through syndication, Star Trek was a marketer’s dream! Everything you could imagine was found in ads from Starlog and Media Spotlight, among other Sci-Fi magazines. A lot of the stuff you see here could be bought at conventions too, and there was also Lincoln Enterprises, the company started by Gene Roddenberry to sell everything a Trekkie could want. The man knew how to make money! I wonder if anyone still has any of these fan-tastic items? A Trekkie’s Paradise to be sure!

Really cool stuff! I think I still have some ads and clippings from old comic books that as a kid I folded to fit into a small matchbox. I’d keep them in my pocket in middle school. Thanks for sharing!
