I don’t have a problem with Meerkats. They are a fine animal and an all-around interesting species. I just don’t see their place in the Star Trek universe. But, hell, why the heck not, right?
Some of you Star Trek purists might be a little turned off, but for the most part, I think these hand knit Star Trek Meerkats are charming in their own cutesy way. If you’re not down with the original series (including the Meerkat clones of Spock, Captain Kirk, Uhura, Scotty and Bones), NiftyKnits also crafts Next Generation and Voyager crew members.
