ThinkGeek Inflatable Star Trek Captain’s chair isn’t a prank

Apr 3, 2012

If you ever wanted to be Captain Kirk, you obviously need a captain's chair. Sure, you can craft your own from that metal folding chair your mom has since 1972 and a black Sharpie, but that won't get you any geek cred. What you need is to cough up to $24.99 and order ThinkGeek's new Star Trek Inflatable Captain's Chair.

It really is exactly what it sounds like, it's reproduction of Kirk's captain's chair from the bridge of the Enterprise done up pool toy style. The chair is an officially licensed Star Trek collectible. It measures 27.75" high x 29.25" wide x 18" deep.

The chair is made for kids and small adults. By small adult, they mean no more than 120 pounds. The inflatable chair is printed with lights and buttons so you can set red alert or whatever else your captainly duties demand. This is actually a real product, not some late April fool's joke. The chair is available and shipping now.
