Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's new weekly series gathering the latest and shiniest pop culture toys and merchandise around. This week: a very fancy take on Peter Parker’s low-rent Spider-Man: Homecoming look, a giant Optimus Prime, and a fully armed and operational battle teapot. Let’s take a look!
Nichelle Nichols, who played Lieutenant Uhura on the original Star Trek television show, revealed that she will be heading out on a NASA flight in September.
At least Uhura won't be needing a neckrub when she gets home from work, meaning you can spend more time rewatching Plato's Stepchildren. Oh. [Xadamdx]
In case you were thinking that the deleted scenes filling all those plot holes were the only reasons to buy Star Trek on DVD, Paramount reveal that they want to use it to bring you on board the Enterprise.
