Get these Juan Ortiz Star Trek posters today and feel like you're part of the enterprise.We've taken the voyages of the starship Enterprise one adventure further with a series of original movie-style art print sets commemorating every episode of Star Trek, the iconic American television series that aired from 1966 to 1969.

The Original Series has become a cult classic, and its leading-edge plot lines and mores have influenced many science-fiction TV shows and movies that have followed.

Designer/illustrator Juan Ortiz talks about the inspiration for our fourteenth set of Star Trek: The Original Series Art Prints, which includes:

Episode 20: Court Martial. As Captain James T. Kirk is ordered to stand trial for a possible court martial in the death of a crewman, chess plays a pivotal role in the plot of this episode and in the creation of this art print. Ortiz says, "Chess has always been an important element on Star Trek. When we first meet Kirk, he's playing chess with Spock. In 'Whom Gods Destroy,' Kirk and Scotty use a passcode based on a chess move. In this episode, Spock plays chess against the ship's computer and is able to make a discovery that will later exonerate Kirk of negligence." The artist added a made-up pull quote to give the design a "paperback cover feel."
Episode 45: The Gamesters of Triskelion. Ortiz offers an homage to comic books with this print for an episode in which the away team is abducted with other aliens and forced to into gladiatorial combat for the entertainment of their disembodied captors. "I always wanted to try a comic book cover for this series, but I didn't want to just copy the Gold Key versions. I wanted limited colors with more of a pop-art feel to it. I've always been a big comic book fan, especially any by Jack Kirby."
Episode 57: The Enterprise Incident. A female Romulan commander looms large in this design for an episode in which a seemingly half-cocked Captain Kirk takes the Enterprise into Romulan space, only to be captured. Says Ortiz, "I originally had a Busby Berkeley idea with this one. It was leaning more towards an art deco feel, but I felt that the elements and also gradients were a bit too distracting. So I toned it down quite a bit."
Episode 72: That Which Survives. Kirk and his landing party beam down to an unexplored Class-M planet and race to find out why a beautiful woman named Losira is killing crew members by simply touching them. The design for this art print was Russian-inspired. Ortiz says, " I wanted something graphic, with little detail. The hard part was not rendering lines and windows onto the Enterprise. The placement of the episode title came out of necessity. Once the illustration was done, I had to figure out how to fit the title and credits."

The Star Trek: The Original Series Art Prints - Set 14 consists of plated-printed lithographs on 100-pound, aqueous-coated, satin-finish paper. Each print measures 18 inches x 24 inches.

The set and all others in this series will be available for a limited time only. None will be repeated or reprinted after they're gone.

Star Trek fans rejoice! Your favorite episodes are here -- or soon to come. All four prints in Set 14 are just $34.95.

      We have eight of these in simple matching frames. They look great together. We plan on getting at least one more set.
