'Star Trek' retro posters: 'Plato's Stepchild' and 'Journey to Babel'
Artist Juan Ortiz is unveiling the August entries in his ongoing series of retro posters for original-series Star Trek episodes, and EW can exclusively share two of them with you. “Journey to Babel” featured the first appearance of Spock’s dad Sarek, who took the phrase “emotionally-distant father” to whole new levels. That episode was a deep-dive into Federation diplomacy, with the Enterprise hosting various ambassadors on a murder-filled space cruise. And then there’s “Plato’s Stepchildren,” an episode which featured one of the series’ more outré concepts (aliens modeling themselves after Ancient Greek culture) and the historic first-ever interracial kiss in scripted television, between Kirk and Uhura.
Scroll down and check out the posters below. The prints are for sale at Quantum Mechanix. Or, if you’re feeling fashion-forward, you can purchase the images in t-shirt form at WeLoveFine starting on Monday, August 5th.
