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.

attention to detail
Created by people who believe for people who believe that richness and detail are important qualities. Carefully researched, no stone is ever left unturned – nothing could be truer in this product, where even the base tells a story.
Thick-walled, high-quality roto-cast resin takes every nuance of the highly detailed rock-sculpted surface, which has been hand painted to enhance the relief and give the Rock, what can only be called, a natural rock-like appearance.
the ultimate collectible
For the first time, you can now own an accurate replica of the Original Series’ First Season Type-1 Phaser and take full [remote] control of the Rock’s awesome power to bring Atmosphere to any quarters on any planet.
the fantasy made real
Wrap yourself in a space blanket, press the Type-1’s fire button and watch the Rock pulse brighter and brighter red while the Phaser hums in your hand – if that can’t transport you to a place of higher enjoyment, nothing ever will.
display – play – love

The Phaser is as accurate as we can make it. No screen used props from this version of the Phaser remain. 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.
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 series’ storylines, we designed the rock to be a generic granite style boulder.
Yes, this first season P1 will mechanically dock into our existing P2, but it does not have the electrical connections to power it.
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.
