Thinkgeek is selling Officially Licensed Star Trek Boxer Briefs —
These Officially Licensed Star Trek Boxer Briefs come in a package of three, so you’ll have one each of Command Gold, Operations Red, and Science Blue. The Starfleet insignia is on your left leg. A black button on the fly enables easy access to your liquid waste removal system for when nature calls. Soft, comfortable, and sexy, these boxer briefs will help you understand why Kirk was so popular with the ladies.
They’re $29.99 a pack and offered in four sizes. (Is Thinkgeek being overly optimistic, marketing a “small” size to fans?)

Sheldon will buy a dozen, I’m sure
“(Is Thinkgeek being overly optimistic, marketing a “small” size to fans?)”
Not all fans are large.
Well, Morris, that may be so, though a look at old fannish photos will show you that today’s fans tend to be considerably larger in girth than those in the ’50s. FWIW, I understand that Trojan and Durex don’t market “small” conda.
If you wear the red ones, do you get shot in the butt?
Is it safe to go out of the house wearing the red pair?
These will sell. I’ve seen silk Homer Simpson undies, so someone will buy anything.
My wife Nila says the Starfleet insignia is in the wrong place.
I hesitate to ask — What is the right place? Where Larry Niven pinned his L.A.con membership badge when he dueled Russell Seitz with champagne bottles?
I don’t know the Niven/Seitz story, but as for the Starfleet arrowhead, ask yourself where something would be which points upward?
Yes, same place. The L.A.con badges were potmetal discs about 3″ in diameter. They were the one piece of “armor” each duellist was allowed.
