Mimoco once again has debuted a line of flash drives after my own heart. It seems like every time I turn around, they're showing off another set of drives that pretty much insist on being mine, and their new Star Trek themed flash drives rank pretty high on my list. This new line features Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock from the original Star Trek series, as well as Captain Picard and Commander Data from Star Trek: The Next Generation. I assume later they'll be adding characters from the other incarnations of the series, but for now you'll have to content yourself with these four. They are officially licensed products (of course), and are available online or at "select specialty outposts on planet Earth."

Anyway, to the flash drives. Because these are Mimobots, they aren't just neat to look at, you get bonus stuff on them. Each one comes pre-loaded with Star Trek Mimory content including never-before-seen material from the Star Trek: The Next Generation Blu-ray release, vintage toy commercials, and vintage comic books. Each one also contains the exclusive MimoDesk suite, including themed wallpapers, avatars and icons. And of course you also get MimoByte software, to give you sounds and character dialogue which plays each time you insert of eject one of the drives from your computer.

These drives are available from 8GB through 64GB, at a cost ranging from $19.99 US to $69.99 US. For an extra $5.95 US, you can add either a black or white hoodie, to protect your drive and also to enable you to clip it to your keys or bag so you are less likely to lose it. Although I would imagine if you lost one, the others would go to warp speed to save it. Check out the introductory video from Mimoco, as well as the full press release, below.

Star Trek is one of the greatest science-fiction sagas of all time, and we're honored to add this revered property to our proud list of MIMOBOT characters." says Scott Seraydarian, Director of Media at Mimoco. "We're equally excited by the amazing array of bonus preloaded content that wholly enriches the product line and is sure to delight fans of all ages. Star Trek x MIMOBOT... Engage!"

Captain Kirk MIMOBOT - In MIMO-form, Captain Kirk MIMOBOT maintains the swagger and smirk that helped make the character a legend as he led the original Starship Enterprise. Nothing can keep Captain Kirk from his mission to explore new life on strange worlds, and Captain Kirk MIMOBOT will take all your digital data right along with it!

Spock MIMOBOT - The voice of logic. Cool, calculating, but intensely loyal despite himself, Spock proved the perfect foil to Captain Kirk. It was the back and forth between Captain Kirk and Spock as they debated morality and duty which made Star Trek: The Original Series such a compelling treatment of the human comedy. Spock MIMOBOT features the famous Vulcan hand salute. Let your data Live Long and Prosper with your Spock MIMOBOT!

Captain Picard MIMOBOT - Leading the new crew of the Starship Enterprise on their mission of exploration and discovery in Star Trek:The Next Generation, Captain Picard had the strength and sensitivity to continue the story where Star Trek: The Original Series left off. Plug in your Captain Picard MIMOBOT and Engage!

Data MIMOBOT - Perhaps the most perfect character to ever be adapted to MIMOBOT flash drive form, Data, the android crew member from Star Trek:The Next Generation, is uniquely suited to storing and transporting your... er, data!

The Star Trek X MIMOBOT Series is now available online at www.mimoco.com and at select specialty outposts on planet Earth.
