Star Trek beams into Forbidden Planet

CPLG brokers deal with sci-fi and fantasy retailer for range of apparel and accessories.

Forbidden Planet is launching a new range of Star Trek apparel and accessories.

The deal was brokered with the sci-fi, fantasy and cult entertainment retailer by CPLG, on behalf of 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 stores across the UK and online.

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

“We are so excited to see this range launch,” said Danielle Brosnan, brand and retail manager at CPLG. “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.”
