Anybody who has been reading Global Geek News for a while knows I am a HUGE Star Trek: Deep Space Nine fan.  It is easily my all time favorite show and rarely does a night go by that I don’t watch at least one episode before falling asleep.  However, until today, I have never seen any kind of DS9 themed cake.  For all of the other Star Trek cakes I post such as the mind blowing Borg wedding cake or the Star Trek Voyager cake, I have never had the opportunity to post a Deep Space Nine inspired cake until now.

This awesome Star Trek: Deep Space Nine inspired U.S.S. Defiant cake was made by the obviously cook cake makers at Stuffed Cakes.  The Defiant is my favorite Starfleet ship and I think they did a pretty good job at capturing the essence of the vessel.  However, I find it very unfortunate that the cake wasn’t made for me because I have yet to meet a bigger DS9 fan than me.

It is pretty common for people to do something geeky to their computers, game consoles or other gadgets, but it is not every day you see somebody turn a kitchen appliance into geek art.  In fact, the only other instance I can think of that I have seen is the TARDIS refrigerator.  Well, one Star Wars fan decided to take a Kitchenaid mixer and give it a Boba Fett look.

DeviantART user Tommyfilth is awesome Star Wars fan that turned a Kitchenaid mixer into this neat Boba Fett mixer.  Apparently he was wanting a Kitchenaid mixer for Christmas and pointed his wife to a broken one on Ebay that he could refurbish.  Well, apparently he ended up getting it for Christmas and after fixing whatever was wrong, decided to paint it to look like Boba Fett.  I’d say he did an excellent job!

I would love to bake with Boba!

Recently, I have been starting to wonder whether I come across more Star Wars cakes or Doctor Who cakes.  I have a feeling I probably see a few more Star Wars cakes than Doctor Who ones although I think the numbers are pretty close or at least it seems like a post about a fairly equal number of both.  Just in the past month or so, I have posted about a really cool Doctor Who wedding cake and an epic Doctor Who proposal cake (I’m still not sure a proposal cake is a real thing but any excuse for cake is fine with me).  Well, now I have found perhaps the cutest Doctor Who cake ever to add to the bunch!

This slightly cartoony looking Doctor Who cake was created by Becky from Becky and The Beanstalk.  I’d say she did a great job!  This is the first Doctor Who cake I have seen that has an adipose on it, much less a Cyberman, Weeping Angel and a Silence too!  And of course no Doctor Who cake would be complete without a TARDIS which this has one of the nicer ones I have seen.

Like millions of others, I am a huge fan of the Futurama cartoon.  It is perhaps my all time favorite cartoon which is why I am so excited about this ‘I <3 New New York’ shirt!  While I can’t say I have ever cared much for the traditional I <3 New York shirts that I have seen all my life (perhaps because I have never even had the desire to visit the Big Apple), throw in an extra N and the Planet Express ship and count me in!

The geektastic shirt sale kings over at TeeFury are selling this awesome Futurama ‘I <3 New New York’ shirt for just $10 today only!  Of course since it is Tuesday, they are offering another shirt for sale too but since I don’t know what it is referencing, I am just going to ignore it and say that if you love Futurama, you need this shirt!

I don’t think I have any Futurama shirts so I think as soon as I finish this post, I am going to order one for myself!  At just $10, you can’t beat that for a shirt like this!  And if you disagree, you can bite my shiny metal ass!

Even though I am personally not a fan of wearing any sort of ring on my fingers, one of my favorite things to post about is geeky rings.  I’m not sure why I like geeky jewelry so much, but I do.  I guess I see it as the ultimate sign of geek love.  It really catches my eye when the rings are inspired by science fiction.  For example, in the past, I have posted a really cool R2-D2 engagement ring, an amazing Stargate wedding ring, a Doctor Who inspired TARDIS engagement ring and even a Star Trek engagement ring.  Well, now we can finally add Battlestar Galactica to the lineup!

This amazing Battlestar Galactica inspired Cylon engagement ring was designed by Reddit user DisturbedRobot.  Apparently he met his bride-to-be at a Battlestar Galactica party (they have those?!) and decided a Cylon ring would be the perfect piece of jewelry to ask her to marry him with.  Of course nobody has such a ring for sale so he decided to design the ring himself, create the ring design in Maya and then turn the design over to jewelry crafter Craig Elliott to make the ring itself.

I’d say it turned out to be one of the coolest looking rings I have ever seen!  I have to admit that I am kind of jealous because I want this ring!  I love how it even has the red dot for the Cylon eye.  Check out the cool pictures of the Cylon ring below!

I can’t say I have ever understood why some people like to wear a fez.  Of course there are some like the TARDIS fez below that look really cool, I just don’t see any practical purpose to one.  I wear baseball caps not because they look cool (although I always make sure to have a cool and very geeky design on every hat I wear such as the God of War hat I am wearing now), but at least with a ball cap it serves a purpose because the bill of the hat helps keep the sun out of my eyes which are very sensitive to light.  A fez can’t make that same claim.

Anyway, whether or not you find the fez useful, you can’t deny that this light-up TARDIS fez is really cool!

The blogger known as Coregeek made this fantastic TARDIS fez for his daughter’s birthday after she had come up with the idea some time before.  Apparently, he followed the fez pattern from Tally’s Treasury to create the basic fez and then he gave it a cool TARDIS look and stuffed an LED in the TARDIS beacon.  The only thing that would make this TARDIS fez any more awesome was if it actually made the TARDIS sounds.

Below are a couple pictures of the fez as well as a video showing some cool light-up action.
