4 New Retro STAR TREK Posters Created by Juan Ortiz

Artist Juan Ortiz added four more cool retro poster designs to his awesome Star Trek: The Original Series art project. He's in the process of creating 80 poster designs -- one for every episode of the original Star Trek series. He's been releasing four of them a month since he started and will do so over the course of 20 months. 

To look over the previous poster art, click herehere and here. You can check out the latest additions below. I believe this is his fifth set. 

Here's the description for the poster above:

Episode 4: The Naked Time.  The art print for this episode about a virus spread by touch through perspiration focuses on the crewman who carries the disease back to the Enterprise. Ortiz says, "I opted for the opening and final scenes where crewman Joe Tormolen comes into contact with the virus and the Enterprise's plummet at the end of the episode." Taking the title literally, Ortiz "stripped off the outer layer of Tormolen's hand to expose the hand of time and space." 

Episode 61: Spectre of a Gun. The artist nixed the idea of creating a "Wanted" poster for this episode in which an away team finds itself in a bizarre reenactment of the legendary 1881 gunfight at the O.K. Corral. "It would be a bit too cliché. The guns make a broader and more serious statement," remarks Ortiz.

Episode 23: A Taste of Armageddon. The idea of two planets locked in a war using computers to wage battle and vaporizing people marked as casualties inspired Ortiz "to depict a face for the computer console with viewscreens for eyes, which is why I went with photos for this one." The face then morphed into a skull with teeth aptly spelling out the title.

Episode 4: The Naked Time.  The art print for this episode about a virus spread by touch through perspiration focuses on the crewman who carries the disease back to the Enterprise. Ortiz says, "I opted for the opening and final scenes where crewman Joe Tormolen comes into contact with the virus and the Enterprise's plummet at the end of the episode." Taking the title literally, Ortiz "stripped off the outer layer of Tormolen's hand to expose the hand of time and space."
