Star Trek original pilot theme music
Star Trek (1966-1969): The original series of 79 episodes has become a cult classic. “Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where no man has gone before.” Numerous movies and spin-off series have followed, including The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise.
My all-time favourite episode is The Trouble with Tribbles. I’m quite enjoying the movie prequels too.
The stamp design, poster and text are from one of my favourite student projects. Each stamp depicts an iconic science fiction TV series from the 1960s. For a recap on the project, click here.

I’ve been watching Star Trek from its beginning. Your stamps are so cool!
I was fond of the episode where they found a silicone-based life-form. Memories….I think the style you chose for your stamps suits the campy nature of these old programs.
A classic series!
Can’t say I followed the programs but I just love the way you’ve done the stamps. Very creative.
The topic “1960s Science Fiction TV Series” would be incomplete
without this one from Germany:
Nowadays, that is Cult 🙂
I guess some othere countries also had their own. Japan maybe? Or France?
Thanks for the link — it looks wonderful. That series is a new one for me. I’m pretty sure it’s never been on TV in New Zealand : ) The ’60s was such a wonderful decade for cheesy sci-fi.
It looks like some people have uploaded this series on youtube. Of course it is all in German, but you could get an impression at least. It was kind of a low budget thing. Cheesy might be the right term. This stuff is a kind of Kitsch, but somehow it is fun 🙂 It is also very 60s!
As a committed explorer, I was a Star Trek fan (‘tho would never attend those dress-up get-togethers…LOL). I could identify with their mission statement and would love to have been an astronaut (not an occupation suggested for young girls when I was growing up….ho hum). Love the drawing and your stamps too.
I am a big Star Trek fan!! great post! I love the drawings!! 😀
Great drawing/stamp. I like your blog header, too.
