Banner_StarTrekNews

In honor of the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, the United States Postal Service has announced a set of Forever stamps to feature illustrations inspired by the series.

Designed by the company Heads of State, under the art direction of Antonio Alcalá, the stamps will showcase four designs on a sheet with “Space… the final frontier” over a field of stars:

  • the USS Enterprise inside the outline of a Starfleet insignia against a gold background
  • the silhouette of a crewman in a transporter against a red background
  • the silhouette of the Enterprise from above against a green background
  • the Enterprise inside the outline of the Vulcan salute against a blue background

“Our stamps articulate the American experience through miniature works of art,” said Acting Stamp Services Director Mary-Anne Penner. “Our diverse stamp topics for 2016 are sure to appeal to everyone, and with the New Year just around the corner, now is a perfect time to get started in stamp collecting. It’s an educational hobby the entire family can enjoy.”

The designs were included in a preview posted on the USPS web site on December 30.
