This month, Star Trek will be officially 50 years old. Earlier this year Canada Post put out a special commemorative set of stamps featuring five of the stars of the original series: Captain Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty, and Klingon Commander Kor. Three of these men are Canadian born - William Shatner (Kirk), James Doohan (Scotty), and John Colicos (Kor). The other two are Leonard Nimoy (Spock) and DeForest Kelley (McCoy). Why there are only five stamps and not, say, seven to include Sulu and Uhura is a mystery. And a huge oversight, in my (and many others) opinion.
Scotty, "Bones" McCoy and Spock are shown in their respective positions: in the engine room, in sickbay, and on the bridge while
Kirk and Kor are shown with their respective spacecraft, The USS Enterprise and the Klingon battle cruiser
each of which also got their own stamp in this domestic coil (though I used mine all up, so am showing the souvenir sheet here)
At the very least, every morning, afternoon, evening or late night, you should be able to find an episode of one of the Star Trek shows.
Which does not disappoint this trekkie.
And, in case you are not a trekkie and are wondering, William Shatner (age 85) is the only one of these five still alive. Although, the unrepresented Starfleet Command officers Nichelle Nichols, who played Lieutenant Uhura and George Takei, who was Sulu, are both also still very much alive.
