Canadian Post Office Celebrates Star Trek Anniversary with Stamps, Memorabilia

Canadian Star Trek fans can now decorate their mail with their favorite Star Trek characters thanks to a new stamp collection.

As a way to celebrate Star Trek’s 50th anniversary, the Canadian post office is commissioning stamp designs that include classic characters and starships from The Original Series. These include Captain Kirk, Spock, Scotty, McCoy, and Klingon Commander Kor. The Enterprise and the Klingon battle cruiser are also available.

Regular stamps won’t be the only collectibles fans can procure. There will also be an Original Series stamp booklet, animated stamps and posters, a special stamp coil and dispenser, framed prints, and a postcard set.

    Petition @usps (US Post Office) to put out a Leonard Nimoy as Captain Spock STAMP in honor of Star Trek’s 50th Anniversary!

    So far there are 3 or 4 countries that have done 50th anniversary Star Trek stamps that I can recall, U.S., Canada and the island nation of Tuvalu. Personally I like the Canadian stamps far more than the U.S. stamps, just very elegant. But as a Canadian I called out Canada Post on their website and facebook page for two reasons. Naturally you include the Enterprise, but to include Kor and Klingon battle cruiser and not Sulu, Chekov and Uhura makes ZERO sense to me. At the same time its all male centric. Seriously!? In this day and age they did not include any female cast members! They should have included Uhura as well as Nurse Chapel and even yeoman Rand. The small island nation of Tuvalu released a 50th anniversary women of Star Trek stamps. RESPECT! Regardless (I do not want to put a damper on things) all these stamps are beautiful and will be purchasing.

      How about because Kor was portrayed by actor John Colicos, who was CANADIAN. He was born in Toronto and passed away in 2000 in Toronto. And since Canada Post is Canadian, it does make a bit of sense to celebrate Canadian contribution to Star Trek.
