In case you haven’t heard, this year marks the 50th anniversary of the debut of Star Trek: The Original Series, the sci-fi television show that paved the way for countless more on the small screen. Over five decades, the sci-fi series has rounded up an impressive assembly of fans, and one of them decided to make an incredible poster featuring over 120 characters, aliens, locations and ships. Now you can get your hands on it.
Artist Dusty Abell, who has worked as a character designer on everything from Batman: Under the Red Hood to The Mike Tyson Mysteries, is a huge Trekkie, and he created this details poster as a labor of love. But CBS stumbled upon it and asked him to recolor it for the Star Trek 50 for 50 art exhibition. The result is a poster that is also a great test of Star Trek trivia that you can frame for your wall.
