I’m a huge fan of Star Trek. So much so that many of my blog posts are about doing nerdy Star Trek-related things with your computer. Here are a few of my favorites.
Download this System47 screensaver (which unfortunately requires the latest version of Flash) and then run this command:
/System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Resources/ScreenSaverEngine.app/Contents/MacOS/ScreenSaverEngine -background &
It’s just for fun and won’t actually overwrite your computer (unless you really want it to).
You’ll need a Webcam, speakers, and this Star Trek door sound effect. It takes a little bit of setup, but it’s pretty fun!
It takes some trickery, but you can convert some Star Trek sounds effects and set them as your ringtone for your office phone.
