Ready for an awesome '60s flashback? Take a look at this fab foursome of Star Trek: The Original Series tribute posters dedicated to geeks, hippies and Dead-heads of all ages. Keep on Truckin' Trekkin'!

Artist and illustrator Juan Ortiz created the art for this sci-fi valentine to Roddenberry's iconic television series, using four key episodes as the ultimate inspiration. "The Ultimate Computer," "Dagger of the Mind," "The Way to Eden" and "The City on the Edge of Forever" have all been immortalized in ink with stylistic ideas coming from old Playboy covers, Grateful Dead showbills and the Beatles' "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds."

The poster set will be available to buy here and is due to ship after Aug. 13. They're offered as a set of plated-printed lithographs on 100-pound, aqueous-coated, satin-finish paper. Each print measures 18x24 inches, and the initial set of four is $34.95.

This will be part of an 80 movie-style litho series, one for every episode (including the first pilot) of Star Trek: The Original Series, to be released at the rate of four per month. An extended interview with Ortiz and his comments can be read at startrek.com.
