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

· Episode 35: The Doomsday Machine. Ortiz's fascination with skulls is evident in this design for an episode about a planet-eating robot that has killed the crew of a starship and threatens the Enterprise. "When I use a skull in a posters, it's usually to convey death or danger," says the artist. "In the case of this episode, the Doomsday Machine has killed billions, but it's easy to forget or overlook, because we don't really see it. I think it's a major part of the story and worth depicting. I believe that six out of the 80 Star Trek posters I've created have a skull in them."

· Episode 50: Patterns of Force. Kirk and Spock become undercover Nazis in their search for a missing Federation historian on a primitive planet whose inhabitants have adopted the ways of the Third Reich. Ortiz shows Spock in a modified Nazi uniform. He says, "My original design had the Enterprise zooming down on a planet with a large swastika on it, similar to WPA posters during World War II. My design was interesting, but I felt it lacked substance." The resulting print, he believes, has greater balance and subtlety.

· Episode 58: The Paradise Syndrome. Ortiz says, "My goal was to carry the angle shape of the obelisk throughout the design." The obelisk in this episode contains an asteroid deflector that must be activated in order to save a planet with Native American inhabitants, among them a priestess who falls in love with an amnesiac Kirk. Adds Ortiz, "I was luck enough to find a font that resembled an ancient lettering.

·Episode 68: Elaan of Troyius. Ortiz played around with different colors until he settled on violet for this episode in which Kirk must fight the aphrodisiac of an arrogant princess and save this ship from prowling Klingons. "My original design had the likeness of the actress who played Elaan (France Nuyen), but because of legal issues, I had to change her features," he adds.

The Star Trek: The Original Series Art Prints - Set 9 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.
