WobbleWorks, the company behind the popular 3Doodler 3D printing pen, has launched a Kickstarter campaign for a set of limited edition Star Trek 3Doodler pens. The pens cost $99 for one, and $450 for the complete set of six.

Love them or loathe them, you have to admire the success of the 3Doodler 3D printing pen in recent years. Capitalizing on a growing interest in consumer 3D printing (and a somewhat more permanent interest in art), these unusual filament-extruding devices promised artists the ability to draw in 3D for the first time. And they delivered!

The 3Doodler 3D pen has been a huge success. Since its original launch, WobbleWorks has put out a number of different versions, including the 3Doodler Start for young kids and the 3Doodler Pro for serious artists and designers. But the company has now launched perhaps its most exciting pens yet: a set of six limited edition Star Wars 3Doodlers, available to order through a somewhat sentimental Kickstarter campaign.

“3Doodler would’ve never happened without the initial commitment of the Kickstarter community,” WobbleWorks explains. “With two successfully funded campaigns under our belt, we wanted to return our gratitude and celebrate Kickstarter Gold with these exclusive Star Trek Crew Edition pens that we’ve been excited to create with the permission of CBS Consumer Products.”

There are half a dozen Star Trek 3Doodler Create pens in the collection, divided into two sets of three: Original and Next Generation. Each trio contains a Command, Operations, and Sciences version.

The pens will be available exclusively through Kickstarter until July 10, 2017, and will start to ship shortly after the Kickstarter campaign ends. Unsurprisingly, the campaign has already far surpassed its original $1,000 goal.

Luckily for Star Trek lovers, the package contains more than just the pen itself. WobbleWorks says its 3D pen sets “come packed with detailed step-by-step instructions for Star Trek themed projects, so that you can bring your favorite Trekkie moments to life in your own home.”

Like other 3Doodler pens, these Star Trek 3Doodler devices extrude heated plastic that cools almost instantly into a solid, stable structure. Unlike 3D printers, no computers or software are needed.

A single Star Trek pen costs $99, with the complete set of six available for $450. Customers can, however, order any number of pens, and can even purchase the Star Trek projects only. (This might be the best option for those who already own a 3Doodler.)

Each Star Trek 3Doodler pen set contains:

  • Limited Edition Star Trek themed 3Doodler Create 3D pen
  • A unique numbered engraving (on the side of the pen)
  • An additional pack of plastic (making a total of 3 packs, or 75 strands) 
  • Special Star Trek themed projects for you to create
  • A 3Doodler Star Trek Leather Pouch to match your pen (in yellow, blue or red)
