Happy New Year! USPS Celebrates with a 'Star Trek' Stamp
December 31, 2015  | By David Bianculli  | 9 comments
 

The U.S. Postal Service waited until the end of 2015 to announce its stamp roster for 2016, but one set of stamps deserves immediate special attention on TVWW. It’s a stylishly designed quartet of stamps devoted to the golden anniversary of Star Trek…

The actual 50th anniversary of the original NBC series is Sept. 8, 1966. As a prime-time TV series, Star Trek lasted only three seasons – two shy of its stated “five-year mission.” But it launched an empire that’s still going, stronger than ever, after 50 years, and in 2016, the Postal Service is scheduled to release a commemorative issue of “Forever” stamps.

Only a total TV nerd would observe, instantly, that the four stamps feature background colors consistent with the colors of the velour pullover jersey “uniforms” from the original series.

Or that the top left “yellow” stamp also has a uniform insignia and a drawing of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and the top right stamp has someone in the process of “beaming down” (or “up”), and the bottom left stamp has an overhead silhouette of the Enterprise with a planet superimposed, and the bottom right stamp has yet another view of the spaceship, inside a graphic of Mr. Spock’s “Live long and prosper” split-fingered hand gesture.

So if and when a total TV nerd reports in, we’ll get back to you…

Happy New Year!

The USPS celebrating the New Year with a 'Star Trek' stamp is exciting for fans like me. Collecting these unique stamps brings a sense of nostalgia and honors the cultural impact of the series. It's a perfect blend of philately and pop culture, making mail more fun and memorable.

Wow, this may also be the first time that the USPS has (unintentionally) honored the Jewish priestly blessing hand gesture. (That's where Leonard Nimoy, RIP, borrowed it from for Spock's "Live Long and Prosper" trademark.)
