As revealed ahead of the Las Vegas Star Trek convention the other week, FanSets launched their first Star Trek: Discovery pins featuring T’Kuvma, Saru, Georgiou, and the Walker-class USS Shenzhou from the upcoming series.

These pins made their debut at STLV and are now available online through FanSets’ web store — but today, retailer ThinkGeek launched their own version of the USS Shenzhou pin for $29.99 — also crafted by FanSets as a ThinkGeek exclusive — themed with CBS All Access branding, and offering a $25 credit to the over-the-top streaming service with each purchase.

If you were planning to sign up for CBS All Access to watch Discovery in the United States — and you’re a pin collector — this bit of Trek swag might cover several months of subscription costs.

You can order from ThinkGeek at their web store today.

    No thank you. I am not going to do CBS All Access’s advertising for them by wearing that pin. I’m probably just bitter this didn’t end up on a better streaming services like Netflix or Amazon. Not that I would wear a Netflix or Amazon pin either!

    How many months will that $25 get you anyways? Three? Four?

    • sw gs

      One.

      • NOT true. $25 would get you four months if you go for the with-ads version or two and a half if you go for the without-ads version.

    • I just signed up last night, and it’s $9.99 without ads or $5.99 with.

      There’s supposedly a coupon that gives you a month free, but it didn’t work for me.

      • Locutus

        Okay. Thanks! I will probably tap in for November and April and binge during those two months to save money. But the waiting will be excruciating. Given CBS’s limited offerings, it should be ad free at $5.99, but whatever.

        • MattR

          Since it’s running in 8 and 7 episode batches, you could sign up halfway through each batch (instead of at the end of each batch). You’d only have to binge watch the first 3-4 each time, and then you could watch the remaining 3-4 as they’re released.

          Less waiting this way 🙂

          • Locutus

            You just blew my mind with all that common sense. Thanks!

          How are CBS offerings limited? On the free trial you only get the shows currently in production. With a subscription you get access to a catalog of about 30k shows. Netflix is losing ALL Disney content including MCU & SW franchises. Considering they are about 20 billion in debt. Disney starting it’s own service will probably kill netflix.

          • Locutus

            30,000 shows? Surely not. It advertises about 110 shows amounting and 8,500 episodes. Netflix has a lot more than that.

    • Shadowknight1

      Honestly, these “channel” specific streaming services are getting out of hand. Why is it better to do that instead of Netflix or Amazon? Centralize, dang it! Otherwise when “real TV” goes the way of the 8-track, we’ll be paying MORE than we do for TV now so we can watch everything we want to watch.

      • Locutus

        Hopefully, some of these services bite the dust and see more profits selling their stuff to Netflix or Amazon. Until then, we are in for a ride. Now Disney’s getting in on the party too, chipping away more at Netflix’s content.

        I’m sure CBS will eventually try to re-consolidate all their Star Trek properties to All-Access. Good thing I have most of my favorite Star Trek on blu-ray.

      • M33

        That is the plan.

      • MattR

        It’s business. This is an oversimplification of course, but from their perspective, they’re only getting a one-time license fee by selling their content to Netflix, whereas Netflix is getting the loyal subscribers who are constant revenue streams.

        So the idea of building your own service that leverages your own content and then allows you to get some additional revenue from subscriptions makes a lot of sense. And it should work if the content is desirable enough to consumers. And all of these services go through growing pains where the initial content isn’t great or isn’t significant, but they add more and more content as they earn more and more money. Like Netflix original content started out small and decent, and now they have some of the most interesting shows around.

    Ordered mine. With shipping closer to $40, but a $25 All Access credit makes it worth it. The whiners can now get the first 4 months free of AA which will cover the first half of season 1.

    CBS AA actually offers a lot of content, though not as much original content. Netflix’s online presence was, once upon a time, also pretty crappy. Amazon Prime and HuluPlus still aren’t all that great when it comes to film content, but both excel at new TV episodes and original series content. Obviously we would all like to spend less money and have everything we want on one or two streaming services, but as more people ditch traditional TV more networks are going to offer their own online content. From a business model standpoint, I will be interested to see what other online-exclusive content CBS AA can come up with. ‘The Good Fight’ is pretty well-regarded, so if CBS AA can continue to churn out programs like this and ‘Discovery’ then it could perform pretty well.

    Does the pin explode into 1000 pieces at the end of the season premiere?
