borg pizza

It’s not every day that you get to have pizza under the watchful eye of Locutus of Borg, but that’s exactly what I got to do this weekend at Flying Saucer Pizza Company in Salem, Massachusetts. Yes, the city famous for witch trials also plays host to a sci-fi themed pizza joint that is now one of my favorites.

Before I even walked in the door I was greeted by a sign reading, “It’s warmer than the inside of a tauntaun in here, and a lot tastier!” and I knew I was in the right place. Inside, the smell of fresh pizza mingled with the nerdiest collection of sci-fi stuff this side of Area 51.

From That’s Nerdalicious: Coming soon to our Nerd Approved Shop—the Star Wars Han Solo Deluxe Size Silicone Ice Cube Tray!

The fun gets frosty with the Star Wars Han Solo in Carbonite Deluxe Size Silicone Ice Cube Tray! Perfect for Star Wars-themed parties, this handy tray lets you capture ice, chocolate, jello, or anything else you can think of in the familiar shape of Jabba the Hutt’s prized possession. Accurately replicating the look of Han’s imprisonment from Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi, the sturdy silicone tray is both heat and cold resistant, and microwave and oven safe, making it almost as durable as real carbonite. Three times bigger than the large Han Solo from the original tray (sold separately), this deluxe-size gray tray creates one huge block of carbon-frozen Han Solo ice!

Pre-orders are available now with shipping slated for December 2012.

We’ve picked out the best of nerdy food and cooking wares and gadgets to help make holiday shopping easier.
