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 fifteenth set of Star Trek: The Original Series Art Prints, which includes:
· Episode 6: Mudd's Women. Fishnetted legs atop stiletto heels epitomize Ortiz's fun, sexy take on this episode about the Enterprise's pursuit of conman Harry Mudd, who sells wives to lonely settlers. Ortiz says, "I thought of the old movie musicals/comedies. Back in the days before video, cable and DVDs, any old movie on TV would do. Sometimes there would be a whole week of musicals. This episode is in no way lighthearted, but the idea for the design was tough to resist." His use of the the Desilu Productions logo on the ship's saucer is an homage to Lucille Ball, who backed Star Trek against the advice of other executives.
· Episode 17: The Squire of Gothos. A noose represents the stranglehold that man-child Trelane of the planet Gothos has on the Enterprise and its crew. The humanoid with paranormal powers and a passion for the Napoleonic era has kidnapped the bridge crew and has the starship stuck in orbit, unable to leave. Ortiz also features actor William Campbell, who played Trelane. The artist says, "I didn't want the noose to be too central. To me the poster was still about the trial and this photo of the actor was too perfect."
· Episode 42: Obsession. In this episode, Captain Kirk hunts a deadly cloud creature that 11 years earlier killed the captain of the U.S.S. Farragut and half the crew by draining their red blood cells. Ortiz says of his design, "It is a tribute to Georges Méliès' Trip to the Moon. The iconic image of the rocket hitting the moon in the eye from that film is, of course, replaced with Kirk and the Enterprise."
· Episode 76: The Cloud Minders. For this episode about a revolt on a planet where the ruling class lives in the clouds while the rest of the population toils in mines below the surface, Ortiz chose to make his design look like "a page out of a storybook. My initial thought was to go with an image of Droxine (daughter of Plasus, the high advisor of the cloud city Stratos), representing a sort of princess. I felt, however, that the image of the floating city had more of a magical and mysterious tone to it."

The Star Trek: The Original Series Art Prints - Set 15 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.
