The coin design features six different views of the U.S.S. Enterprise in vibrant colour; the six views include overhead, underside, bow, aft, starboard and portside. The different views allow the viewer to examine the starship from every angle. The dark background of this coin gives the viewer a sense of outer space, while the rich blue recreates a nebula cloud. The cover stamp design features a portrait of Captain James Tiberius Kirk in his gold uniform of Starfleet’s command division. The background has the U.S.S. Enterprise in orbit over the red planet.
Inside the custom packaging stamp design bring together two coil stamps that feature classic nemeses from the television series; The U.S.S. Enterprise and a D7-class battle cruiser from the Klingon Imperial Fleet. The Enterprise on its five year mission of exploration and discovery is positioned to allow the viewer a glimpse of the twin warp nacelles, and the saucer shaped hull proudly displaying the registration number NCC-1701. The second stamp depicts the D7-class battle cruiser, with its bulbous command pod jutting out from the spread wing hull, along with the ships iconic long neck, giving it an ominous and aggressive appearance.
Star Trek was a science fictional television series that followed the starship Enterprise and its crew. The show is set in the milky way galaxy during the 2260’s. The ships purpose was stated in the opening credits.
