Canada Post have kept fans of the iconic 1960s science fiction TV show Star Trek on their toes this month, as they have gradually revealed stamp designs honouring characters including Captain James T Kirk, Spock and engineer ‘Scotty’.

The first two stamps depict Captain Kirk (played by William Shatner) and the Starship USS Enterprise, respectively, and were revealed in a short video shown below.

A third stamp was revealed days later in Vulcan, Alberta, the town which shares its name with character Spock’s home planet. The second video reveals the stamp which shows a still of actor Leonard Nimoy in character as first officer Spock.
