Whether you’re a fan of the television series or the movies or both, the summer of 2016 is going to be all Trekked out compliments of a new collection of women’s swimwear modeled after Star Trek: The Next Generation uniforms, as well as the highly-anticipated July release of Star Trek Beyond, the 13th installment in the film franchise, which marks the 50th anniversary of the launch of the original sci-fi TV series (Sept. 8, 1966).

The one-piece swimsuits, which are a ThinkGeek exclusive and officially-licensed Star Trek: The Next Generation merch, come in Blue (Sciences), Gold (Operations), or Red (Command). The collection also includes a swim shirt made in homage to Deanna Troi’s lavender jumpsuit from the 2nd and 3rd seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation, as well as a cover-up romper that’s a more subtle nod to TNG styling.


In other Trekkie news, July 22 marks the release of Star Trek Beyond, and the official movie poster featuring Zoe Saldana, who is reprising her role as Uhura, was unveiled over the weekend. Along with Saldana, the film stars Idris Elba, Chris Pine, Zach Quinto, Simon Pegg, Sofia Boutella, John Cho, Anton Yelchin and Karl Urban, and the story goes like this: “The USS Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a mysterious new enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.”
