Kor, battlecruiser stamps join #StarTrek50 series

Another two stamps have been issued as part of Canada Post’s month-long series celebrating the 50th anniversary of Star Trek: one depicts Klingon Commander Kor, played by the late Canadian actor John Colicos, and another shows the Klingon D7 class battlecruiser.

The stamps – the series’ sixth and seventh, respectively – were unveiled today at 10 p.m. at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo.


This offering joins five other stamps unveiled by Canada Post since April 6.

The first two Star Trek stamps feature the U.S.S. Enterprise and its Captain James Kirk (played by Canadian actor William Shatner), respectively. A third stamp, depicting Spock (played by the late actor Leonard Nimoy), was unveiled a few days later at a star-gazing event in Vulcan, Alta. On April 22, a fourth stamp featuring Montgomery “Scotty” Scott, chief engineer of the U.S.S. Enterprise, was unveiled at famous locations across Toronto. Earlier this week, a fifth stamp featuring Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy was unveiled at the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame in London, Ont.
