However, if merchandising for STO proceeds in typical Cryptic fashion, then we're not going to see anything happen with it. And I think that's a shame, because it could pull in a lot of money for Cryptic/Atari. Even if something like the 3-D printing is prohibitively expensive, they could do custom shirts with our ships and/or crew on them, or custom mouse pads, custom mugs, etc. etc. I don't know about you, but I'd get a bunch of custom shirts if I could have my ships on a shirt.
Actually, I am a bit surprised there's not a comic book, especially looking at some of the comic tie ins that do exist.
(Case in point, the Star Trek/G.I.Joe/Transformers/Ghostbusters vs. Zombies crossover.)
The closest we got was Cryptic-designed uniforms in the Countdown comic.
