The world of fragrance is about to boldly go where few have ventured before: the Trekosphere.

Hoping to profit from the May 8 release of J.J. Abrams' new Star Trek film, chronicling the beginnings of Capt. James T. Kirk and the USS Enterprise, Maryland-based Genki Wear will release three Star Trek-themed scents on April 24.

John McGonigle, president of Genki, said the two men's colognes and one women's perfume will retail for about $30.

How amusing. If you want some I suggest you buy it before the inevitable cessation of production.

"Tiberius," based on Kirk's character. The scent, which carries the tag line "Boldly Go," is described by Genki Wear as having a "warm vanilla, white musk and sandalwood" base.

Red Shirt." This cologne, with the tag line "Because tomorrow may never come," is in honor of the unnamed Enterprise officers who don't typically survive past the TV show's first scene. It's described as having a "leather and gray musk" aroma.

But it's the "Pon Farr" perfume that may require a double take. That's right, it's for the ladies.

I would rather that they produce soap for the trekkers waiting to see this movie.

What, nothing for skanky green-skinned ladies who want to impress their lovers before they kill them?

I can imagine some other Star Trek colognes...

Tribble. The more you use, the more appears in the bottle.

Targ. Musky, with a hint of blood.

Fernegi. The smell of money.

No doubt Sulu will want to wear the women’s perfume.

I was really looking reward to seeing this movie, but this type of asinine marketing really turns me off.

The people who will see this movie are the ones who first watched the original Star Trek TV show as kids.

I ain't buying no stinkin perfume

"Stella" will probably be a big seller to Code Pink.
