Sold out at the Mint! From warp drives to teleporters, U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701) has offered us an exciting vision of what Outer Space travel could entail in the 23rd century. Her five-year mission under the command of Captain James Tiberius Kirk (played by Canadian actor William Shatner) made legends of both the ship and her captain, as featured together on this pure silver coin that celebrates the 50th anniversary of Star Trek.

Captain Kirk Outer Color BoxThe Design
The design features a side-by-side depiction of the beloved Star Trek captain and the ship that is forever associated with him. On the left side is a full color portrait of Captain James T. Kirk (as famously portrayed by Canadian actor William Shatner) in a gold uniform as he orders the crew from his command chair on the bridge. To the right, the U.S.S. Enterprise is painstakingly recreated in extraordinary detail, thanks to intricate engraving along its saucer-shaped hull and twin warp nacelles. The two elements casually overlap the outline of Starfleet’s Delta Shield Insignia engraved in the background.

Captain Kirk $10 SilverGene Roddenberry’s visionary Star Trek original television series debuted in 1966, and ran for three seasons until 1969. Set in the future, the science fiction program followed the 23rd century adventures of Captain James Tiberius Kirk and the Constitution-class starship U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701, a powerful interstellar spacecraft dispatched by the Earth-based Starfleet Command to explore the galaxy. Who can forget the opening lines of the title sequence (narrated in voice-over by Canadian William Shatner himself!)?

    Space: The final frontier.
    These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise.

Fun Facts About the Starship U.S.S. Enterprise!
    - Two models of Enterprise were used throughout the series' production: an 11-foot studio model and a smaller "3-footer" used mostly for promotional shots.
    - The studio model was significantly modified eight times since its creation in 1964. The last alteration came in 1967 during the production process for the famous episode The Trouble With Tribbles.
    - Within the Star Trek universe's fictional timeline, Enterprise served as a Starfleet vessel for 40 years and achieved her greatest fame under the five-year command of Captain James Tiberius Kirk (famously portrayed by Canadian actor William Shatner).
    - Throughout the franchise's history, several incarnations of the ship were also named U.S.S. Enterprise. The Enterprise from The Original Series bears the (fictional) registration number NCC-1701, while subsequent Enterprise ships are distinguished by a different letter (e.g. NCC-1701-B).
    - A replica of Enterprise was erected in 1995 in Vulcan, Alberta, where the annual "Spock Days" draws Star Trek fans from around the world!

Celebrating Fifty Years of Star Trek!
Star Trek

The first series, now referred to as "The Original Series" or TOS, debuted in 1966 and ran for three seasons on NBC. It followed the interstellar adventures of James T. Kirk and the crew of the starship Enterprise, an exploration warship of a 23rd-century interstellar "United Federation of Planets". In creating the first "Star Trek", Roddenberry was inspired by Westerns such as Wagon Train, along with the Horatio Hornblower novels and Gulliver's Travels. These adventures continued in the short-lived Star Trek: The Animated Series and six feature films. Four spin-off television series were eventually produced: Star Trek: The Next Generation, followed the crew of a new starship Enterprise set a century after the original series; Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager, set contemporaneously with The Next Generation; and Star Trek: Enterprise, set before the original series, in the early days of human interstellar travel. Four additional The Next Generation feature films were produced. In 2009, the film franchise underwent a relaunch with a prequel to the original series set in an alternate timeline titled simply Star Trek. This film featured a new cast portraying younger versions of the crew from the original Enterprise. A sequel to this film, Star Trek Into Darkness, premiered on May 16, 2013. A thirteenth theatrical feature, the next sequel to Into Darkness, has been confirmed for release in July 2016, to coincide with the franchise's 50th anniversary.

Star Trek has been a cult phenomenon for decades. Fans of the franchise are called Trekkies or Trekkers. The franchise spans a wide range of spin-offs including games, figurines, novels, toys, and comics. Star Trek had a themed attraction in Las Vegas which opened in 1998 and closed in September 2008. At least two museum exhibits of props travel the world. The series has its own full-fledged constructed language, Klingon. Several parodies have been made of Star Trek. Its fans, despite the end of Star Trek episodes on TV, have produced several fan productions to fill that void.

Star Trek is noted for its influence on the world outside of science fiction. It has been cited as an inspiration for several technological inventions such as the cell phone. Moreover, the show is noted for its progressive civil rights stances. The original series included one of television's first multiracial casts. Star Trek references can be found throughout popular culture from movies such as the submarine thriller Crimson Tide to the cartoon series South Park.
