FAIRFAX, Va., Sept. 28, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, ThinkGeek is proud to announce the availability of its Star Trek Pizza Cutter. As pizza connoisseurs and Star Trek fans, the minds at ThinkGeek devised a product to incorporate both loves into one outstanding product.

"After years of staring at the iconic shape of the Star TrekEnterprise we finally realized in one 'aha!' moment what the saucer section of the ship was best used for... cutting pizza!," said Senior Merchandiser Ty Liotta.  "After a bit of ergonomic adjustment we ended up with the best pizza wheel on this side of the galaxy."

Modeled after the original U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701, the most celebrated Federation Starfleet vessel, it features an all metal construction. The ships saucer is replicated by a sharp 4" diameter steel blade and the 4.5" handle mimics the warp nacelles and generators. The product is not dishwasher safe and should be hand washed only.

Whether you're a vegetarian Vulcan or a carnivorous Klingon, this is the perfect accessory for any geek kitchen. Plus, you don't need the steady hands of Doctor Leonard McCoy to cut through the most topping heavy pizzas. If you're trying to cut you way though a New York style, Chicago deep-dish or even an Andorian Redbat pie, there is no better tool.

TheStar Trek Pizza Cutter is an officially licensed product of CBS Consumer Products.

Available now on ThinkGeek.com for $24.99. For more information, contact Jessica Darrican at 305-576-1171 x.16 or Jessica@maxborgesagency.com.
