After 26 years, the beloved children’s show hosted by LeVar Burton will disappear from the airwaves. Today, educational funding favors programs that teach kids how to read, rather than why to read.

When we originally heard about Star Trek cologne, we were a bit skeptical that the musk would actually come to fruition. Now, it’s with the greatest joy that we report “Red ShirtStar Trek Cologne cologne is available for purchase.

Named after the brave red-shirted men to appear on one episode of Star Trek only to take a vaporizer in the chest for Captain Kirk, ThinkGeek describes the new cologne’s scent as “bright, clean and direct with top notes of green mandarin, bergamot and a hint of lavender, finishing with base notes of leather and grey musk.” The 100ml bottle runs $30. And we’re guessing it could be somewhat effective in your dating life should you wear it in substitute of your typical Star Trek uniform. [ThinkGeek via CrunchGear]

Found this on Gizmodo. Interesting concept, but Red Shirt? That’s the cannon fodder of the show!
