Resistance to party is futile! If you, or someone you know is a huge Trekkie, what better than throwing the best Star Trek party the galaxy has ever seen? Laser projectors, Klingon warbirds and plucky Captains saving the day! Follow our simple steps for a Star Trek themed birthday party that is out of this world.
Of course, with the different generations, there will be different favorites. Whether it’s the red uniform of a Commander, the original turtle-neck in gold, beige or light blue: throughout all the costume shifts there will be one you identify with most. Costumes are available for purchase or hire through many costume stores, and if you’re brave and handy with a sewing machine, making your own is definitely achievable. Have a look around your local costume stores or head online to check out the hundreds of available Star Trek costumes – you can find some cool designs on sites like Amazon or the Star Trek Clothing Store. Remember to have plenty of Vulcan ears lying around at your disposal too!
Food and Drink
Those Romulan’s had quite an interesting diet! At your Star Trek party you can have all the looks of authenticity without the horrible taste – gagh, we’re talking about you! First things first: drinks to serve your guests. Vodka tonic punch made with Blue Curacao makes for the perfect Romulan ale! If you’re having a sit down dinner, spaghetti bolognaise or a similar pasta dish is the perfect supplement for the worms of Klignon gagh. Blood wine doesn’t have to be as horrible as it sounds, not if you get creative and make your own labels to stick on your bottles of red. In your Romulan ale, these Star Trek Starfleet insignia ice cubes will add to the theme – or can be used as chocolate moulds for cookies, cupcakes or the birthday cake. Speaking of, if you’re not really a whizz in the kitchen, making a Star Trek cake can be as easy as shaping together some sponge cake in the shape of a red shirt, or of the Vulcan salute, icing, decorating and serving. But if you’d rather hire a creative genius to make your Trekkie cake for you, have a look at these amazing examples.
Unless you live in a space fleet, your decorations will probably have to compliment the theme rather than emulate it. Make a sign that says, “Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the (insert name here) Starship Enterprise. Its five year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before” and have it hang in the main area of the party – perfect for photos and as a centrepiece. Use cutouts of Captain Kirk and Dr Spock, available from Google searches for cardboard cutouts, and have one either side of the entry. Have little undercurrents of the theme throughout: such as these wine glass charms, giving each guest their own Star Trek character. As the party gets going make sure you have party lights and laser projectors for a truly out of this atmosphere feeling. Laser projectors are perfect for a Star Trek themed party, as they are good for both the party and the out-of-this-world kind of theme.

Throwing an adult Star Trek party is simple when you have the basics sorted; hopefully this list has given you some inspiration. Live long and prosper!
