Star Trek Week: Star Trek Talking Alarm Clock (Top Banana)





Now here's a beauty, as Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott might say!

It's a Star Trek talking alarm clock from the early 1990s (and released by a company called Top Banana.) 


The clock features the "voice alarm sound of communicator" followed by "landing party to Enterprise. Beam us up Scotty."

Then the "transporter beam sound is heard while a shaft of light beams down on the planet's surface."

There's also a "snooze feature," and a four event digital clock. I have two of these now, one in a box, and one loose.


Many years ago, on one of the first nights Kathryn and I had moved into our own home in Monroe, this alarm clock scared the heck out of us by going haywire in the middle of the night. From the upstairs bedroom, it sounded like someone was talking (very loudly...) in our first floor foyer. But no...it was just...the transporter chief.

Energize.
