Now's your chance to get the Kirk Barbie.

If you didn't know that Star Trek is turning 50, a new Barbie collection is here to remind you.

Mattel, the company behind the iconic Barbie brand, is selling Star Trek 50th Anniversary Barbie dolls featuring some of the most popular characters from the series, including Kirk, Spock, and Uhura. All of the dolls are currently available for pre-order and cost US$34.95.

"As Star Trek turns 50, we look back and celebrate one of the most influential television series of all time," Mattel writes in its product description for the Kirk Barbie doll. "Dressed in his classic gold uniform tunic, Captain James Tiberius Kirk leads his crew in exploring the final frontier. Sculpted to recreate the actor's likeness, this Captain Kirk doll stands handsomely and features realistic details from the original costume, including the iconic Starfleet insignia."

First airing in 1966, the show was arguably one of the most important sci-fi shows to ever reach television, and spawned a slew of successors that have garnered similarly strong support.

Still, the first Star Trek lives on as more of a cult classic today than a major hit. The show only aired for three seasons and despite early high ratings, wasn't generally well-regarded among critics at the time. But it's held up long enough to earn itself the Barbie treatment.

If you're a Star Trek fan, pre-order yours now on the Barbie website or Amazon (Spock, Kirk, Uhura), which says the dolls will ship on July 15.
