See Star Trek’s special effects in action on this two-stamp souvenir sheet! The two high-value definitive stamps featured on the sheet were created using a complex “lenticular” printing process that makes images appear to move when viewed from different angles. The stamps pay homage to Star Trek’s most famous technology—the transporter used to instantly beam people from one place to another, often in the nick of time—and one of the greatest episodes of the original series, “The City on the Edge of Forever.”

The stamps show crew members magically appearing and disappearing: on the transporter platform of the U.S.S. Enterprise and through a time portal known as the Guardian of Forever.

Stamp designer Kosta Tsetsekas, of Vancouver-based Signals Design Group, saw the lenticular technique, an opportunity to recognize both the show’s futuristic vision and the now old-fashioned special effects that brought it to life.

  • “The City on the Edge of Forever” is not only one of the most critically acclaimed episodes from the original Star Trek series but has also been ranked by some as one of the greatest episodes in television history.
  • The transporter on Star Trek worked by converting its subjects into an energy pattern to beam them to their target, then rematerializing them into matter.
