I would be hesitant to recommend a Corsair board, but couldn't find any better alternatives that fit the bill. It's a shame the CM Storm Quickfire boards seem to be discontinued.

The KUL ES-87 and KBParadise V80 (there is a non-backlit version) are both solid, no-frills boards too. I'm a fan of both. Although the latter is not found on Amazon, mechanicalkeyboards(dot)com stocks them.

While I am not the expert at all at boards I could guess however you have 2 big audiences with mechanical keyboards: The Expert Typists and the Gamers.

Gamers are the LED RGB light run-and-gun and CS:GO-with-CS-Flow; and then the Expert Typists I notice are LED-less and want keyboards made from recycled Abrams Tank material :P

While I am a gamer I am looking for a board solely for these caps to satisfy my fandom and do so at the office. At home I have the Corsair Strife RGB MX Silent. (I personally don't like blue switches for the clakity)

From what I see the Cooler Master seems to be a good hybrid of the two. Its budget friendly for the gamers and typers alike. Hopefully.....idk, just shooting from the hip with my newb insight contributions.

Nonetheless, a good easy-to-read instructions on how these fit for first time cappers like myself would be SUPER helpful. I just know in my case I want a good budget board to cap these for the office keyboard (that I need to buy soon :) ) I know lots of people possibly with boards and never thought to recap them are huge Trek fans. I bet this is a product that will surely inspire those like myself to go for the plunge.

I'd go with Professional typist over expert. . I'm terrible at typing, and I can't be the only engineer who is.

Thanks for all the insights and suggestions everyone. After much vacillation and rumination, I think the best solution is just to recommended the WASD TKL and tenkey barebones keyboards, both because they're readily available (in all MX switches) and don't even require the buyer to remove keycaps.

All you need is a wire keycap puller to remove the keycaps already on the keyboard. WASD sells them (https://www.amazon.com/WASD-Keyboards-Wire-Keycap-Puller/dp/B00AZCGF7K), but they are pretty widely available. Installing the new caps is straightforward as well: line up the keycap stem with the cruciform slider of your switch and push down (it's difficult to mess up the orientation because you can see the legends on top of the keycaps).

I didn't even think of the WASD keyboards. That seems like a good solution.

What format will the group buy take - open for a time period to all comers, limited quantity, raffle etc?

How long will it run for?

It will run the entire month of November, open to anyone who wants to participate, of course.

Below is what we're currently looking at in terms of pricing, btw. I tried my best to keep the prices as low as financially feasible, but all the fancy multi-layered packaging, official "Star Trek" licensing, jewelry-grade artisan, etc., makes this a sort of "premium" set in terms of costóand ultimately the pricing decision wasn't mine to make. But I do think we're still within the realm of what I see on Originative and similar locations for some sets. This is the first "official" keyset that I know of featuring a major Hollywood franchise, so I think it's kind of special thing, and I hope you guys will be willing join me in supporting it. :)

Core $99
Core + Numpad $149
Core + Alternates $149
Core + Numpad + Alternates $199
Legacy Upgrade Kit $19
Bronze Artisan $48

The Legacy Upgrade kit is just the purple Trek logo keys.

This is looking great! The pricing is understandable as well. There are Trek logo keys on the top right in the "Core Keyset" image, are those the Legacy Upgrade Kit you mentioned or no?

Thanks! And, yes, it's just the three 1u purple keys that have the Trek logos, for folks who have earlier generic (non-Trek) versions of the keyset.

Roddenberry Entertainment will be handling fulfillment, just like any normal item ordered through their store. All the sets will go from Signature Plastics to the Roddenberry warehouse in LA before being shipped to GB participants.

Really cool set, I wish it was in a cylindrical sculpt rather than DSA, but a few people I work with have been drooling over the original run and are psyched for this!

The ISO kit was something developed a long time ago in collaboration with a GeekHack member in Germany (LechnerDE), as my experience with non-ANSI keyboard layouts is limited. As I recall, he mentioned at the time that it wasn't necessarily a comprehensive solution but that it would be a good way to cover the maximum number of people with the minimum numbers of additional keys.

Particularly for this set, since we have to use a single gift box to fit all the different options, it was important to choose a sort of middle ground that would reach and satisfy the widest group of people without getting too deep into the long tail of possible key permutations. So this was our solution, for better or worse.

Quick update. The price for the core set will actually be $109 rather than $99. At $99, we calculated that they would probably lose money per set, so we had to adjust it. Just in case you were worried that they're marking these up by a lot, that should tell you something. ;)

This set looks very nice. I'm in. With or without Norde kit.


btw.

I think Norde kit without tertiary legends would look very nice in this key set. Just like MiTo Canvas Norde kit (29 keycaps). You can even combine ÷/ō , ń/∆ and ‹/Ň and save three keys and it would still look very nice.

Who wants to organize a GB?  ;)

Quick question: would anybody be interested in my offering a parallel group buy on my site for a full keyboard and aluminum case combo that complements this set? They would be essentially the "Norbatouch" cases with a MasterKeys S PBT keyboard included instead of a Novatouch. Price would be like $369. Switch options: brown, red, blue, green, silver.



I realize that's a ton of money to spend all at once on a full keyboard set, but I figured people will ask, so I'm trying to figure out if it might be feasible.

I'm leaning towards not getting both a board and Galaxy Class in parallel group buys - but if you actually put them up, there is a possibility. I really like the looks of your case, seems to be quality; I am not big on the Cooler Master board though. I guess it really depends on how well it complements the set.

Edit: I am buying a board for this set though... and now I can't stop thinking about your case.

Stupid question probably, but does the Masterkeys S PBT fit in that case with the new indicator leds relocated?

I would be making a new case that fits the Masterkeys S PBT. It would just be a slight modification to the other one.

I feel like the Masterkeys S PBT is well suited to Galaxy Class because it isn't backlit, is fairly affordable, and I have a reliable source for at least 50 or so of them. :)

Yup. The design modifications required are pretty simple: reduce plate well slightly, add three LED through-holes, adjust USB bracket screw locations, modify ferrite core pocket location.

Very cool.  I always enjoy content from Tested on YouTube.  I wish they would have shown some

Am I crazy or are some of the legends and icons on the numpad grayed out in the options images?

It looks like it, but not sure if final version will be blacker. If not I'll mix and match with my v.1 set
