Are you tired of traversing the galaxy (Target and Best Buy) for the perfect present for your science fiction obsessed loved one? Do you want a gift that properly conveys your want for them to live long and prosper? Does the idea of putting on pants sound less appealing than being stuck in the middle seat on the connecting flight from Tatoine to Coruscant between C-3PO and Jar Jar Binks?
