Stardate: ~ 45045.11 November 20, 2012
Star Trek was and always will be ahead of it’s time. This beloved franchise has broken-ground in television, film, animation, comics, and now Flash Drives with the release of Star Trek X MIMOBOT® Series 1.
At Mimoco, we are honored and thrilled to be teaming up with CBS Consumer Products for this amazing series.
Gene Roddenberry created the diverse, unprecedented world that is Star Trek based on his own beliefs for mankind’s success. Specifically that “if man is to survive, he will have learned to take a delight in the essential differences between men and between cultures. He will learn that differences in ideas and attitudes are a delight, part of life’s exciting variety, not something to fear.” Roddenberry furthered the idea that all men created are equal to all beings are created equal.
Even with its iconic characters, thought-provoking concepts and dedicated fan-base, the original series was cancelled after just three seasons. It was kept alive by those same fans through conventions and newsletters until a new series of successful films were produced exactly a decade after the final episodes aired on TV.
It wasn’t until the launch of Star Trek: The Next Generation television series and its own set of films that the franchise really blossomed. Today Star Trek’s popularity is as strong as it’s ever been with the anticipation of J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek: Into Darkness”, the sequel to his smash 2009 reboot.
“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 pre-loaded content that wholly enriches the product line and is sure to delight fans of all ages. Star Trek x MIMOBOT… Engage!”
This first collection of Mimobots features four Star Trek favorites in classic MIMOBOT style and is available in up to 64GB of data storage. Each character also comes pre-loaded with exclusive 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.
The line also comes with the MimoDesk™ personalization suite, which includes Star Trek-themed wallpapers, icons and avatars. Last but not least, each Star Trek MIMOBOT comes equipped with MimoByte™ sound software powered with a huge offering of iconic sound effects and character dialogue that play each time a Star Trek MIMOBOT is inserted or ejected from one’s computer.
Captain James T. Kirk
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 Jean-Luc Picard
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!
Lt. Commander Data
Data MIMOBOT® – Perhaps the most fitting character to ever be adapted to MIMOBOT flash drive form, Data the beloved android Lieutenant Commander 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.
Say what you will about its original sets and attitudes, but Star Trek has always been an enduring beacon of humanity’s future potential. Gene Roddenberry’s original goal can be achieved by working together irregardless of gender, ethnicity, and even species…we’re looking at you Worf…
