Canada’s postal service has announced to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek and Canada’s connection to the beloved sci-fi series. There are many variations on just straight stamps, including lenticular images of the U.S.S. Enterprise on postcards and larger posters. The main players of the original Star Trek series are featured on the stamps, including Canuck actors William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk, James Doohan as the lovable engineer Scotty, and John Colicos as Klingon Commander Kor. Spock, too, can claim a connection to our country via Vulcan, Alta., which shares its name with his home planet. Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy rounds out the group.
