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 fifth set of Star Trek: The Original Series Art Prints, which includes:

· Episode 4: The Naked Time. The art print for this episode about a virus spread by touch through perspiration focuses on the crewman who carries the disease back to the Enterprise. Ortiz says, "I opted for the opening and final scenes where crewman Joe Tormolen comes into contact with the virus and the Enterprise's plummet at the end of the episode." Taking the title literally, Ortiz "stripped off the outer layer of Tormolen's hand to expose the hand of time and space."

· Episode 18: Arena. For this popular episode that pits Captain Kirk against a creature called a Gorn in a battle to the death, Ortiz chose earth tones in a stark silhouette. He also updated the look of the lizard-like alien. "My Gorn represents what he may have looked like if TOS had today's budget and special-effects technology," he says. "The inspiration came from the sword and sorcery paintings by [the late American fantasy and science-fiction artist] Frank Frazetta that I used to ogle as a teen."

· Episode 23: A Taste of Armageddon. The idea of two planets locked in a war using computers to wage battle and vaporizing people marked as casualties inspired Ortiz "to depict a face for the computer console with viewscreens for eyes, which is why I went with photos for this one." The face then morphed into a skull with teeth aptly spelling out the title.

· Episode 61: Spectre of a Gun. The artist nixed the idea of creating a "Wanted" poster for this episode in which an away team finds itself in a bizarre reenactment of the legendary 1881 gunfight at the O.K. Corral. "It would be a bit too cliché. The guns make a broader and more serious statement," remarks Ortiz.

The Star Trek: The Original Series Art Prints - Set 5 consists of plated-printed lithographs on 100-pound, aqueous-coated, satin-finish paper. Each print measures 18 inches x 24 inches.
