The June 2016 Fandom in a Bag swap is Star Trek.

Step 1: Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite characters, movies, shows, books, or any other preference you may have.

Step 2: After partners are assigned, check to see what your partner likes. You can follow-up with a message if you need to know more. Then scrounge up, buy, and/or create items that fit in a bag. Your bag must contain at least 7 different types of items although more is certainly encouraged (PLEASE try to make it look full). Different types of items means 5 ATCs, 3 pins, 2 postcards would be 10 items but only 3 different types. The swap requirement is for 7 different types in a bag.

Some ideas of themed items: stickers, ATCs, postcards, toys/action figures, comics, note cards, pins/buttons, magnets, jewelry, trading cards, legal music CDs, charms, ornaments, books, bookmarks, address labels, postcards, plushies/stuffies, promo stills/autograph cards, fainfic, zines, etc.

More specific ideas: com badge, Starfleet Academy stickers or acceptance letter, lists of your favorite episodes/quotes, recipes to feed into a replicator, Earl Gray tea, ship blueprints or little models, tie-in books, holodeck program list, a small red shirt, "alien" vocabulary word cheat sheets, an ode to your favorite rule of acquisition, etc.

Be sure to check your partner's profile so you don't send anything he or she might be allergic to.

Step 3: Put the items in a ziplock-type bag. Size: 1 gallon (measures about 10 inches by 11 inches or 28cm by 26.5 cm). You can decorate the bag or incorporate the bag into something (mount it or sew something around it). If you want to make or buy a bag instead of using a ziplock plastic one, that's fine as well, but it should be at least a gallon in size. All items you gather or create should fit into the bag (if a couple are too big, that's fine).

Assemble your bags during the month of June and please send by the deadline (June 30).

Group rating rules apply. NO FLAKING ALLOWED! All flakers will be beamed away to the most boring planet in the galaxy, never to return.

  1. Kirk (Shatner)
  2. Kirk (Pine)
  3. Riker
  4. Spock (Nimoy)
  5. Spock (Quinto)
  6. Tribbles
  7. Handmade items - star trek fabric or space themed

I will be SO excited with anything ST! Handmade Items definitely welcomed too!!

  1. Star Trek: TNG as a whole. I adore every bit of that show. Seriously. I rewatch it, like, twice a year. Can't go wrong with ANYTHING related to it (except no books, please, I have about a hundred ST books sitting on Mt. To Be Read still).
  2. The Enterprise
  3. Tribbles (I wear tribble slippers at work)
  4. Pops- I own no ST ones
  5. Reboot movies (Kirk, Spock, Bones, Uhura, Kahn)
  6. Necklaces
  7. Starfleet Academy
  8. DS:9 & Enterprise are both wonderful
  9. Voyager and TOS also have places in my hearts, but they're my least favorite of all the series/movies
  10. Action figures of ST engineers I don't already have for my collection (I still need Trip and TOS!Scotty)

I adore store-bought and handmade. I love to see your creativity and passion for a fandom shine through in a swap. Also, I don't think I have a single ST ATC in my collection!

Oh!! I have a dear friend who loves Nimoy's Spock, so I wouldn't mind something related to him that will be a gift to her. I really like him too, but Uhura was always my favorite from TOS.

If you need any more specifics, see my favorites listed on previous Star Trek fandom in a bag swaps. Or message me. Thank you!

Oops almost forgot to post here!

Favorite series original and next gen and the new jj abrams reboot.

I love creativity and art. I've just begun collecting ATCs so anything you'd like to create will be cherished. I'll also read and enjoy anything you choose to write regardless of ships.

Love enterprise and star fleet symbols.

I have a fondness for those poor poor red shirts and red shirt humor.

I love all of the original characters in OST.

Tribbles are so cute

Original Klingons are the best! Not sanguine on subsequent interpretations.

I hadn't posted yet because I signed up more for my husband more than anything...he's the Star Trek fan! He loves the Enterprise which he just finish watching again. The Next generation too! I would love to get some Lego or small artwork for him I bought him a LARGE picture of the enterprise and would like to put something around it. Really anything goes....we don't have much, besides the movies.
