Charitable Star Trek fans are in luck because Stands and Wil Wheaton have announced a new T-shirt design!

The new shirt will be benefiting NAMI, the National Alliance for Mental Illness. NAMI is a nonprofit organization that strives to end the stigma of mental illness by raising awareness and advocating for those in need of mental health treatment and support. 

Trekkies will recognize the T-shirt’s design as a call back to Wheaton’s character, Wesley Crusher, in season one of Star Trek: The Next Generation. The new shirt and the rest of the Wil Wheaton collection are available now at Stands!

Amanda Brock

Amanda is a mental health counselor by day and a nerd by night. She’s been fangirling since 1989 when she had so many New Kids On The Block posters in her bedroom that she ran out of wall space and had to put them on her ceiling. She finds people and stories fascinating and even went to film school years ago. The journey from film to Social Work is a long, depressing tale, but she came out the other side feeling inspired to help people. Now she’s living out that old Hollywood cliché. You know, the one where someone can’t contain their passion any longer and leaves a career in entertainment to pursue their dreams of becoming a therapist in the Midwest. She’s not a filmmaker anymore but she is a fan. Her favorite genres are sci-fi, fantasy, superheroes, and musicals. She loves Supernatural, New Kids On The Block (duh), and comes from a family of Star Trek nerds. She might also be a little obsessed with her cats.
