Captain Kirk MIMOBOT® – In MIMO-form, Captain Kirk MIMOBOT maintains the swagger and smirk that helped make the character a legend as he led the original Starship Enterprise. Nothing can keep Captain Kirk from his mission to explore new life on strange worlds, and Captain Kirk MIMOBOT will take all your digital data right along with it!
Spock MIMOBOT® – The voice of logic. Cool, calculating, but intensely loyal despite himself, Spock proved the perfect foil to Captain Kirk. It was the back and forth between Captain Kirk and Spock as they debated morality and duty which made Star Trek: The Original Series such a compelling treatment of the human comedy. Spock MIMOBOT features the famous Vulcan hand salute. Let your data Live Long and Prosper with your Spock MIMOBOT!
Captain Picard MIMOBOT® – Leading the new crew of the Starship Enterprise on their mission of exploration and discovery in Star Trek:The Next Generation, Captain Picard had the strength and sensitivity to continue the story where Star Trek: The Original Seriesleft off. Plug in your Captain Picard MIMOBOT and Engage!
Data MIMOBOT® – Perhaps the most perfect character to ever be adapted to MIMOBOT flash drive form, Data, the android crew member from Star Trek:The Next Generation, is uniquely suited to storing and transporting your… er, data!
