Those things were cool. No actual relation to Star Trek except the licensing on the box.
We used (unbranded) ones to play Killer in high school. One kid spray-painted his black and pulled it on a subway platform, making a cop draw down on him and almost fire. This led to the school administration banning all role-playing games on school grounds, despite the fact that the incident 1) hadn’t happened on school grounds and 2) had no conceivable relationship to pen & paper games. Our D&D group brazenly flouted the ban and openly mocked any faculty that gave us grief.
You could get away with a lot more shit in the 80s than now.
