Can you believe that Star Trek: The Next Generation is already turning 35 years old? That’s practically a whole generation since an entire generation of Next Generation. Well to celebrate such an occasion, Nerf is releasing this Starfleet Type 3 Phaser, as one is bound to do on such occasions. All 35th birthdays should be celebrating by collaborating with Nerf, all of them.
This is actually a set of 2 blasters, the Type 2 Phaser that only fires 1 dart and the big boy type 3 Phaser that lights up and thrills the auditory senses with authentic movie sounds from First Contact. Personally I’d rather hear the soothing whale calls from Star Trek IV, but that’s a whole different can of Borg worms. Whatever that means. This set comes with 7 official Nerf Elite foam darts, which doesn’t sound like a lot, because it’s not. It can fire five shots in a row, so you’ve got two to spare, or lose behind the couch. But you’re such a good shot, all you need is just 1, right?
