USPS Meets Star Trek
On Sept. 2, 2016, the United States Postal Service commemorated the television debut of Star Trek with a new series of Forever stamps.
The new postage pays tribute to a television program that inspired science and culture alike with four Forever Stamps inspired by the classic show.
The Star Trek Forever Stamps honor the many contributions the show has made to society over the last 50 years.
An Iconic Silhouette
The silhouette of the USS Starship Enterprise is found on one of the new stamps.
A Favorite Salute
On another stamp the outline of Spock's iconic hand gesture — the Vulcan salute — frames an image of the Enterprise in space.
An Intergalactic Symbol
A third stamp frames the Enterprise in an outline of the Starfleet insignia.
A Snapshot of Inspiration
The fourth stamp captures the inspiring technology of the show with the silhouette of a crewman in a transporter.
