Star Trek postage stamps

Postage stamps featuring Star Trek designs have been produced by numerous countries around the world, and have drawn inspiration from most of the Star Trek series (the only on-screen series not represented now is TAS) featuring various characters, ships, and other icons of the series. As most special design stamps are released to appeal to a collectors market, many of the Star Trek designs have been released in souvenir miniature sheets, many featuring the stamps as part of a larger design.
