If you're like me, you vaguely resent your office job. You wonder, "why aren't I zooming around the galaxy, saving humanity and occasionally making out with green space chicks?" Well, here's a small piece of consolation for this drab, Klingon-free world:

Yes, that is an authentic reproduction of Captain Kirk's command chair from The Original Series. It's a fully functioning piece of furniture, and will retail for about $1,000. That's about the price of a high-end easy chair. Except this one has audio effects. And flashing lights. And it's Captain Kirk's freakin' chair.

This is perfect for those quiet afternoons around the house. You can pretend you are a swashbuckling starship captain cruising the galazy, instead of some dude eating pretzels in his underwear while watching re-runs of Laverne and Shirley.
