Beam me up, Scotty and take me to the toy store — Captain Kirk, Spock and Uhura will be there soon.

As the original “Star Trek” approaches it’s 50th anniversary this year, the franchise will celebrate with dolls inspired by some of the shows most iconic characters. The adult collectors items are part of Mattel’s Barbie Collector series and will be renditions of actors William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and Nichelle Nichols.

Dressed in wonderfully accurate replicas of their doppelgangers’ outfits, the dolls are complete with characteristic objects. Kirk holds a communicator and phaser, Uhura has her nifty tricorder and Spock’s hand is making the Vulcan salute. Each doll will be $34.95 and is available for pre-order.

If you really want to get your geek on, you could always buy the 1996 Barbie and Ken “Star Trek” collector’s edition.

Have fun, Trekkies.
