The catalog of collectibles

Canada Post is Canada's crown corporation mail service.

In 2016, it was announced in Vulcan, Alberta, that commemorative stamps would be released featuring images from Star Trek, including Spock [1], James T. Kirk, USS Enterprise [2], Montgomery Scott [3] and Leonard McCoy. [4] The Scott stamp was announced in Toronto on 22 April 2016, with Christopher Doohan present. [5] [6]

Following a "takeover" of the Canada Post Twitter and Instagram accounts by Klingons, two stamps featuring Commander Kor and a Klingon battle cruiser were released at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo. [7] William Shatner was also presented with a framed copy of the Captain Kirk stamp. [8]

On 6 May 2016, reported that fans who donated $75 or more on the crowdfunding page for "COPD: Highly Illogical" would get a limited edition 12x16 print of the Spock stamp autographed by Julie Nimoy. [9]

In an interview with The Georgia Straight, William Shatner expressed his honor at being on one of the stamps:

"Confessing that he was floored by the honour, he says, 'I've just recently picked myself back up. Isn't it something?'

'I was collecting stamps when I was a kid—back with the founding fathers and Prime Minister Macdonald—but the possibility of collecting me never occurred to me.' He pauses, then laughs. 'I'm going to use that line again!'" [10]
