Star Trek the New Frontier

Post by bear0001 »

As a Tribute to Leonard Nimoy of Star Trek Fame please add your covers and stamps ;

Actor Leonard Nimoy, who won a worldwide fan base as the pointy-eared half-human, half-Vulcan Mr Spock in the Star Trek television and film franchise, has died at age 83.
Nimoy, who suffered from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, died at his home in Los Angeles.
His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed the death to the New York Times. A private memorial service was being planned.
An outpouring of grief on social media has paid tribute to the man considered by many to be a geek idol.
Nimoy's Star Trek co-star William Shatner, who played hot-headed Captain James T Kirk, said he would miss the man he loved "like a brother".
"We will all miss his humour, his talent, and his capacity to love," Shatner said on Twitter.
Fellow co-star George Takei, who played Mr Sulu, posted his heartfelt tribute to Facebook.

"Today, the world lost a great man, and I lost a great friend," Takei posted to his public Facebook page.
We return you now to the stars, Leonard. You taught us to 'live long and prosper', and you indeed did, friend. I shall miss you in so many, many ways.
Nimoy began his acting career at the age of 18, winning a sprinkling of small parts in 1950s television series, before landing the iconic role of Mr Spock in Star Trek in 1966.
Aboard the spaceship USS Enterprise, science officer Spock and his crew ventured around the galaxy exploring new worlds in death-defying odysseys.
The character Spock would be resurrected for several feature films after Star Trek snowballed into a cultural phenomenon in the 1970s and 1980s, making Spock's Vulcan salute and salutation "live long and prosper" a touchstone of the science-fiction world.
Nimoy would later reveal he based the hand gesture on a Jewish blessing.US president Barack Obama said he "loved Spock".
"Long before being nerdy was cool, there was Leonard Nimoy," Mr Obama said.
"In 2007, I had the chance to meet Leonard in person. It was only logical to greet him with the Vulcan salute, the universal sign for 'live long and prosper'.
"And after 83 years on this planet – and on his visits to many others – it's clear Leonard Nimoy did just that."
In addition to acting, Nimoy was an accomplished director, directing two of the Star Trek films and 1987 box-office hit Three Men and a Baby starring Tom Selleck.
Last year, he disclosed on Twitter that he had been diagnosed with COPD, a progressive lung disease.
"I quit smoking 30 years ago. Not soon enough," he tweeted to his 810,000 followers. "Grandpa says, quit now!!"

Zachary Quinto is the actor who played the "young" Spock.

I think I misread your post when I was tired last night. I thought you had maxi-cards to add to this thread. However I don't think there are maxi-cards on this thread to add to your thread. The BGC cachets (mine & earlier ones on the thread) are definitely covers as are the Wild Horse hand painted covers.

I have read there will be a new Star Trek series from 2017 made by CBS. It will however be set in the Universe from the new films, rather then the old and trusted Universe of the original Star Trek.

Sayings from Star Trek have come into our daily lives, for example "Beam me up Scotty". How many of us has said that when having a bad day :?: Australia Post changed the saying slightly in promoting a UPU - Space Exhibition, to "Beam me up Spotty" referring to the dogs being the first animals in space:

Hi,

Anybody knows if the enlarged lenticular Star Trek stamps from Canada are valid for postage?
See https://www.canadapost.ca/shop/star-trek-tm-50th-anniversary/p-342096.jsf?execution=e1s1 for a description and picture of these "enlarged" stamps.

These cost 140$ versus 10$ for the regular sized stamps but I guess that having them used on cover would be extremely rare. I am not sure how big the stamps are but the enlarged souvenir sheet is 36 x 56 cm (versus 9 x 14 cm for the regular size); so the stamps are 4 times larger than the regular ones.

drseg, the item you are referring to is a large "animated" poster, so the answer would be no. This is equivalent to the enlargement of the Captain Kirk stamp that is being sold as a framed print.
