[UPDATE WE HAVE OUR WINNER] By way of random selection Nerd Bastards has chosen Facebook user Ernest Sandridge as the recipient of the Star Trek Bathrobe. Ernest is one lucky duck! Jealous? Don’t feel too bad, will have more great items to give away in the weeks to come. You’ll get your chance.

In continuation of Nerd Bastards fan appreciation, ThinkGeek.com has given us yet another awesome, nerdy, needful item.

Up this week is a Star Trek science officer bathrobe, so you can explore strange new worlds in fuzzy comfort. Even if you’re not a Vulcan, spending an entire weekend watching Star Trek: The Original Series without one of these comfy bad boys would be…highly illogical.

What exactly do I need to do to win?

There are two things you need to do to win. 1. You need to follow Nerd Bastards on either Twitter (@nerdbastards) or Facebook. 2. You need to tweet or make a wall update  saying “Dammit Jim, I’m a Doctor not a spa manager”.

Contest is applicable to fans who already follow us on Facebook/Twitter (you just need to tweet or make a wall update of the required fore mentioned phrase). Multiple tweets or wall updates are allowed (no limit, but don’t flood the feeds. Play nice.).  1 lucky winner will be randomly chosen (so don’t go trying to bribe us with money or boobs. They are certainly welcomed, they just won’t increase your chances). on Monday 4/11/11. The one size-fits-all robe  will be shipped out (free of charge via standard delivery) within 1-2 weeks.

Got it? Now, what are you waiting for? Start spreading the Nerdbastards/ThinkGeek gospel. DO IT NOW!

If you do not win but still wish to cloth yourself partially, leaving your Vulcan balls/Vajayjay to hang in the wind then you can pick up your own Star Trek science officer robe at thinkgeek.com For $49.99. Captain and Engineer styles available as well.

Casualwear aboard the USS Enterprise

It was a late night in the sciences lab on board the USS Enterprise. The Captain said he needed a cure for the virox plague on Cor Caroli V, so that meant every scientist on the ship was hunched over a scanner. All night, your forehead was pressed into the scanner hood until your eyes burned.

Those late night sessions always made for difficult morning shifts, and at 0800 you have to be up-and-at-em at your post. You roll out of your bunk and plod over to the foodslot for your morning coffee. Too tired to even put on your uniform, you hope nobody will mind that you’re wearing your Starfleet issue bathrobe.

I mean, it looks like a uniform, from a distance – they’re the same color as your sciences department top, or command-gold if that was your department. They have your department insignia on the left breast, and even your rank embroidered on the sleeve. As long as you stay casual and relaxed (easy to do in this warm and soft terrycloth bathrobe), nobody will notice anything’s amiss.

You step up to the food slot, insert your bright red data tape, watch the blinkenlights for a moment, and out pops a steaming hot cup of Ethiopian Sidamo. Armed with your stimulant, it’s back to the sonic showers before you join Alpha shift on the bridge. Those buttons aren’t going to press themselves.
