Barbie marks 'Star Trek's' 50th with Kirk, Spock and Uhura dolls

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, Mattel has unveiled its new Barbie line featuring Kirk, Spock and Uhura from the original series.

Entertainment Weekly has the official reveal, but dolls can already be found on retail sites like Target.com, where you can get a closer look.

Based on the likenesses of actors William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and Nichelle Nichols, each of the articulated dolls comes with such accessories as a communicator, phaser and tricorder. The Spock doll can be posed offering the traditional Vulcan salute.

These aren't the first Star Trek Barbie dolls: Mattel celebrated the franchises 30th anniversary in 1996 by releasing Barbie and Ken in Original Series uniforms, and teamed with Paramount in 2009 for dolls modeled after Chris Pine's Kirk, Zachary Quinto's Spock and Zoe Saldana's Uhura from the movie reboot.

Priced at $35 each, the 50th-anniversary Star Trek Barbie dolls will arrive in stores later this month.
