create atmosphere on any planet

Star Trek Rock Moodlight

Glowing rock sample, remote controlled by First Season Type 1 Phaser replica

This Original Series Star Trek Rock Mood Light faithfully reproduces helmsman Sulu’s thrilling Alfa 177 planetary experience, where he used his phaser to heat a rock and thus save him and his away team from perishing in the freezing conditions.

Beautifully sculpted and hand-painted for realism, the Rock is the perfect decorative piece, allowing you to indulge your Trek devotion in any setting. As the lights dim, the glowing Rock comes into its own.

To Survive fire the Type 1 Phaser remote control at the rock with a continuous burst and it glows increasingly brighter, throbbing redder and redder as it appears to heat up. Cease firing and the rock slowly dims as it appears to cool.

Surviving just about ok but looking for a little something extra? Then switch to Atmosphere and discover the Rock’s more ambient, multicolour effects. Coax the Rock to display one of its galaxy of beautiful colours, very imperceptibly glide from colour to colour with subtlety indicating a higher intelligence or engage ultra slow fade, sunrise or bedtime routines.

Highly detailed & realistic: Carefully textured, hand-painted rock for ultimate realism

Accurate Type-1 Phaser: Highly accurate Type-1 phaser replica based on the Original Series first season design

Immersive play features: Firing phaser makes rock glow as if heating up. Stop firing and rock fades, appearing to cool

Atmospheric features: Use the Type-1 Phaser remote to access the Rock’s range of beautiful colour and light effects

Ultra slow colour fade: 10 minute fade through colour spectrum with imperceptible changes between colours

Very slow dim to off: 10 minute fade to off, perfect for bedtime

Real survival blanket: Shelter from the cold even on Earth with this real, single-use gold mylar ‘space’ blanket (no substitute for being properly attired or ensuring your transporter is fully operational)

Frequently-asked questions

Look down this list of frequently-asked questions to find answers that will help you if you are thinking of buying a Star Trek Rock Mood Light and want to learn more about how it works or how accurate it is.

What batteries do the Rock and the Phaser take?

The Rock takes four AA alkaline batteries. Note it can also be powered from any 5V USB power supply using the special power cable supplied with the rock.

The Phaser takes two AAA alkaline batteries.

How long do the Rock’s and Phaser’s batteries last?

The Rock’s batteries will provide about XXX hours of illumination. The Phaser’s batteries will last for about xx months of controlling the Rock.

Is the Rock or Phaser supplied with a set of batteries?

No.
You will need to purchase four AA batteries for the Rock. Alternatively, you can use the power cable to power the Rock from any 5V USB power supply.

You will need to purchase two AAA batteries for the Phaser remote control.

Are the Phaser and Rock “screen-accurate” replicas?

The Phaser is as accurate as we can make it. No screen used props from this version of the phaser remain, although there are some useful screen caps. So our only reference was photographic. We know that the body was most probably the same as the Second Season Phaser that everyone is familiar with, and we have detailed scans of that prop. However, we know that the sight on the Type-1 lifted with the thumb wheel, but due to space inside the phaser (with the two AAA batteries in the way) to make it with a rasing sight was a step too far. As we guessed there must have been mid grade props where the sight didn’t open, we went for that as a compromise and to make the product simple to manufacture. The beauty is that this unit has been made to be taken apart, so I am sure some clever bods will be able to mod it to create a version with a rising site if they want and can find a way of fitting the mechanism in around the battery housing..

It was impractical to copy the exact rocks used in The Enemy Within, and as the Phaser-heating-rock-trick has been used in other Trek series’ storylines, we designed the rock to be a generic granite style boulder.

Will the Phaser dock into my Wand Company Phaser Type-2?

Yes, this first season P1 will mechanically dock into our existing P2, but it does not have the electrical connections to power it.

Are you ever going to make a Tricorder?

We are Trek fans too and we would love to complete the set, so the thought of working on bringing a Tricorder to market is never far from our minds.

However, we haven’t decided definitely either way yet. To make the Tricorder with the functionality we would like to put in it is a large commercial project and we are not sure of the size of the market and this whether we would be able to recover the development cost. Added to that, a Tricorder would be an expensive product, easily running to a few hundred dollars, further limiting its market potential.

However, we are working on other projects which have similar technology to that which would be needed to make a tricorder work, and we might consider using this technology platform for a tricorder development later.

If you are desperate for a Tricorder, help us make our lovely products successful and as we grow and expand we may well have the bandwidth to tackle such a project in the future.
