Like I said, Cryptic tends to be bad at capitalizing on merchandising opportunities. STO may be a more difficult beast than their other properties (craptons of legal wrangling to worry about, I'm sure), but if you look at City of Heroes/Villains you can see what I mean. They had a unique IP that they could've marketed any way they wanted, and the only merchandise they had for a long time was a grand total of two T-shirt designs, some mediocre comic tie-ins, and some Heroclix figures.

Cryptic just doesn't have the lobes for merchandise, I guess.

I've been thinking about doing just that. I'd like to find an artist to do a really nice drawing or rendering of a ship or two, then use CafePress to put it on a shirt or something. It's a shame I can't just go to the C-Store or something and do that.
