Day 9 - Risa's too easy an answer, though a tropical vacation planet with a sexually liberated, non-judgemental populace sure sounds like one hell of a good time!

That's why I'm picking Casperia Prime. All the luxury and great weather of Risa and with less traffic!

Kind of like the Jasper to Risa's Banff.

Today on #GetTrekucated's 2019 Holiday Gift Guide: "Star Trek Cologne & Perfume"

You wanna smell like Star Trek?

Not the most appealing statement, amirite? You envision the smell of convention centers and tightly packed masses, of cheetos and mountain dew?

(How dare I stereotype!)

Thankfully, Star Trek fragrances are supposed to smell good, otherwise they wouldn't sell.

So introducing to you... the smells of Star Trek.

Star Trek's 50th anniversary brought out a line of fragrances for men and women, and if you're fortunate you can still find them on Amazon for an affordable price!

You have three different fragrances available.

The first a scent inspired by Captain Kirk. It's a complex bouquet of scents from lavender to cinnamon, leather and sandaldood, pachouli and rose. It's a fragrance meant to evoke Captain Kirk's powerful charisma.

Then we have Commander Spock's fragrance. Cool, intellectual, and logical, the vulcan's scent incorporates fruits and botanicals like cardamon and pineapple, with cedar, patchouli, and suede.

Lastly we have Uhura. Supposed to represent emancipation and sensuality, you can smell fruity notes of bergamot, mango, and grapefruit, with orange blossom, jasmine, musk, amber, and sandalwood.

Each bottle resembles a communicator, and are an official licensed product.

Though once a European exclusive, this perfume set can be found on Amazon and eBay, for those who want to capture the scent of the final frontier.

Today on #GetTrekucated's 2019 Holiday Gift Guide: 'Star Trek Discovery: Season 2 on Blu-Ray'

We start off the week with a returnee of the gift guide, and a great idea in its own right. Last year we were graced with Star Trek Discovery Season 1 on Blu-Ray. Now, we get Season 2.

Star Trek Discovery Season 2 takes place in the aftermath of the Klingon Wars. The Federation and the Klingon Empire are at an uneasy peace, but now a new threat arises. The Red Angel, appearing as if out of nowhere in random spots in the galaxy, interferes in major events and it is up to the Discovery to find out who it is and what they want. Only it leads to a deeper rabbithole, with Section 31 and the AI known as Control also seeking out the Red Angel with their own agendas. Can the mystery be unraveled in time, or will we be looking at another endless night?

You can find the second season of Star Trek Discovery on DVD and Blu-Ray, though if you want to take advantage of the amazing visuals you'll want the Blu-Ray version.

The best part of this new season is not just that it's improved over the first. Now we're meet with the return of popular characters such as Phillipa Georgiou and L'Rell, and new fan favorites such as Commander Spock, played by Ethan Peck, and Captain Christopher Pike, played by standout star Anson Mount.

Love Discovery or still call it STD, you can't deny that it's an essential add-on to any Star Trek fan's collection.

Day 8: Another tough choice.

Captain Archer and Captain Janeway make questionable choices and their character depictions, not to mention their morality, can be inconsistent. However, the core characters are still amazing and I'd chalk up any inconsistencies to writing.

Captain Sisko is just too damn explosive and angry. However, I respect his passion, and he resolve.

Captain Kirk is an absolute blast and is my second favorite captain. However, there can be only one...

Captain Picard. He's the most well rounded of all the captains. He can throw down in a fight and get physical like some of the more warlike captains, but he's able to attend diplomatic functions, negotiate peace treaties, dig through archeological sites, quote Shakespeare, and play the piccolo like a boss.

He's just better all around. Only downside? He's not sociable. He can be a downright miserable bastard. But eventually he loosens up.

Day 7: Historical figures... hmmm.... I can't say Gabriel Bell because he's still fictitious, and in the future, a future that's unfolding as we speak.

Abraham Lincoln. (TOS Season 3, Episode 22, 'The Savage Curtain')

I think actor Lee Bergere played Lincoln well, and the script may not have accurately depicted Lincoln, but it did accurately depict our ideal vision of the former President.
