Star Trek: The Original Series

A day of art from the Star Trek entertainment-industrial complex continues: While fans scrutinize and decrypt the first poster for Star Trek Into Darkness, J.J. Abrams’ forthcoming sequel to the 2009 blockbuster big screen reboot of the sci-fi classic, CBS Studios and Quantum Mechanix have released the latest batch of retro-cool posters by illustrator Juan Ortiz, inspired by episodes of the original Star Trek TV series.

First: “A Taste of Armageddon.” From the first season of ST:TOS, the episode found Captain Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise caught in the middle of a most peculiar kind of war game. The episode contains one of the greatest fight scenes ever staged for television.


Second: “The Naked Time.” The fourth episode from the show’s first season found the crew acting strangely (shirtless foil-wielding Sulu!) after exposure to red alien liquid.

This month’s collection also includes posters for two other episodes, “Spectre of the Gun” and “Arena.” You can see those pieces here. You can find more info on how to purchase these prints at
