The Design
Star Trek 5 Captains Glow in the Dark Enterprise Firing Phasers obverseThe design combines full color and intricately elaborate engraving that brings to life the portraits of the five captains of the Star Trek™ television series. From left to right, we're greeted by:
 Benjamin Sisko (played by Avery Brooks) of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993-1999);
 Jonathan Archer (portrayed by Scott Bakula) of the most recent series, Star Trek: Enterprise (2001-2005);
 James T. Kirk (actor William Shatner) from Star Trek: The Original Series (1966-1969);
 Jean-Luc Picard (Sir Patrick Stewart) from Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987-1994); and
 Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) of Star Trek: Voyager (1995-2001).
The portraits are positioned around an engraved Delta Shield insignia and against a background of deep space. They gently overlap the outer band in which the words CANADA, STAR TREK and the year date 2017 are engraved in a Star Trek font.

The photoluminescent, glow-in-the-dark image depicts Captain James Tiberius Kirk's U.S.S. Enterprise of the Original Series speeding through space, firing its forward phaser banks. Between the phaser blasts lies an illuminated Delta Shield insignia, which became the identifying emblem of Starfleet. It bears the five-point star that indicates a command rank.

Star Trek 5 Captains box closedCaptain James T. Kirk – Star Trek™: The Original Series (1966-1969)
For many Star Trek™ fans, Captain Kirk was the very first captain to lead them into this futuristic odyssey. His exploits on the bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 have made him a Starfleet legend—whether it is destroying a planet-killing machine ("Doomsday Machine"), or making first contact with the First Federation ("The Corbomite Maneuver").

Portrayed by Canadian actor William Shatner, Kirk is adventurous, courageous and clever; his hands-on approach to leadership means he is willing to get his hands dirty and be part of Away missions, but he also welcomes the perspectives of those around him—particularly McCoy and Spock. Kirk always strives to do what's morally right, in spite of his reputation for being a maverick who bucks the system, occasionally re-writes the rules, and is no stranger to temporal violations!

Captain Jean-Luc Picard – Star Trek™: The Next Generation (1987-1994)
A master strategist, an eager scholar, and a diplomat with the utmost dedication to his duty and crew—that is Captain Picard, as played by Sir Patrick Stewart. With a different leadership style than his predecessor, Picard is widely cited as a model captain who deftly handles any situation with gravitas, wisdom and a noble spirit.

Picard inspires unwavering loyalty and conviction onboard U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D—even when assimilated by the Borg ("The Best of Both Worlds"). From matching wits with Q ("Encounter at Farpoint") to advocating for Data's right to self-determination ("The Measure of a Man"), Picard is the clear voice of reason in countless situations that put humanity's ideals and morals to the test.

Commander/Captain Benjamin Sisko – Star Trek™: Deep Space Nine (1993-1999)
Star Trek 5 Captains box openPortrayed by Avery Brooks, Sisko is a commanding presence at the once-derelict station Deep Space 9. To the Bajoran people, he is known as the revered "Emissary of the Prophets"; but under his command, the station became a hub of activity, and later, the first line of defense in the Dominion War.

On the station or at the helm of the Defiant, Sisko is a brilliant tactician who isn't afraid of getting his hands dirty, or of letting his temper show. He is a fearless leader in pivotal battles, but he also welcomes insight from those that surround him. Ultimately, Sisko does whatever it takes to save the Alpha Quadrant and the people of the Federation—even if it takes an act of self-sacrifice ("What You Leave Behind").

Captain Kathryn Janeway – Star Trek™: Voyager (1995-2001)
Captain Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) has perhaps the toughest assignment of the five captains. She must balance scientific exploration with survival after U.S.S. Voyager is left stranded some 75 light years away from Earth, deep in the little-known Delta Quadrant—the home of the feared Borg Collective.

Embarking on the long voyage home, the science-minded captain earns and maintains respect through her dedication and sheer force of will. Diplomacy, self-reliance and an occasional show of strength are key in this part of the galaxy, where they are decades away from Starfleet's farthest reach. Janeway doesn't shy away from taking risks; but perhaps her greatest exercise in leadership comes from her decision to integrate Maquis rebels ("Caretaker"), a former Borg drone ("Scorpion"), and other non-regulation members into her crew, which becomes a tight-knit family as they come together to survive.

Captain Jonathan Archer – Star Trek™: Enterprise (2001-2005)
The most recent franchise introduced us to one of Kirk's predecessors in the Star Trek™: Enterprise timeline. The captain of Enterprise NX-01, Archer (Scott Bakula) is a born leader with a keen sense of adventure and an inquisitive spirit that is well suited to exploration.

As humanity's first deep space explorer and interstellar ambassador, Archer can't rely on precedent to help steer the course. There is no Prime Directive—Archer makes (or breaks) the rules as he goes. A true trailblazer, he often finds himself in situations that put his moral beliefs to the test; and while he may cross the line at times ("Damage"), Archer's ability to make the tough decisions paved the way to his eventual position as President of the United Federation of Planets ("In a Mirror, Darkly, Part II").

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
is an American science fiction entertainment franchise created by Gene Roddenberry and under the ownership of CBS and Paramount. Star Trek: The Original Series and its live action TV spin-off shows, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise as well as the Star Trek film series make up the main canon, while the canonicity of Star Trek: The Animated Series is debated. The expansive library of Star Trek novels and comics whilst still part of the franchise, are generally considered non-canon.

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.
