Forbidden Planet secures Star Trek exclusive with CBS Consumer Products

Forbidden Planet is launching a range fo Star Trek apparel and accessories in a deal brokered by CPLG for CBS Consumer Products.

The range will include t-shirts, hoodies, jackets, accessories, bags, keychains, mugs, travel pass holders, and tea towels, all of which will be available in their stores across the UK and online.

The launch coincides with the release of Star Trek: Discovery season two which premiered last week on CBS All Access in the US and on Netflix in the UK.

The launch of Star Trek: Discovery in 2017 was the first new series in more than a decade and its success reignited passion for the franchise with fans of all ages.

Danielle Brosnan, brand and retail manager at CPLG, said: “We are so excited to see this range launch. Forbidden Planet has been a long-term supporter of the franchise, so it’s great to see them develop their own product range as Star Trek continues to grow and expand its audience.”

Anthony Garnon, licensing and special projects manager at Forbidden Planet, added: "Star Trek is a core brand for Forbidden Planet, and has been since day one. 

"It’s an honour to strengthen the ties between us with this amazing opportunity to create new and exclusive products direct for the UK Star Trek fan base. We’ve designed lots of 2019’s releases already – and let me tell you, you’re in for a treat. 

"Designs lined up include a special ‘Pride’ t-shirt celebrating the LGBT community within Star Trek, as well as others focused on Vulcan logic, the Borg and a certain Jean-Luc Picard."
