Whenever a big event comes out, it is normal for us to celebrate. More and more we find ways of celebrating different events in different ways, but there are some ways which you have to keep using because they are, for lack of a better term, classic. One of these ways is to release limited edition stamps, a collection that Star trek fans will be able to enjoy in 2016.

In 1966, Star Trek premiered on people’s televisions and it’s been hard to miss its impact and references in everyday life and science fiction since. As a result, the US Postal service will be releasing not one but four different forever stamps, each with both a unique colour and image.

Featuring a yellow (or gold to some) background with a ship travelling at speed and a star fleet emblem in the background the first catches your eye, the second is a green stamp with our planet in the circle of a starey outline of the Enterprise. The third features a red planet and the Vulcan greeting, symbolising life long and prosper, with a blue background.

I’ve left my favourite to last, a starey outline of a figure on a red background. Those familiar with the old series will recognise the tribute to all those brave red shirts, who forever unnamed, led the dangerous expeditions only to never come back.

The four new forever stamps come in at 49 cents, converting to around 33p in the UK, a price that collectors and Star Trek fans will be rushing at warp speed to collect.
