The stamps appear to be in two different formats: a horizontal commemorative featuring Canadian actor William Shatner in his role as Starship Capt. James T. Kirk, and a smaller coil stamp picturing the Starship USS Enterprise.

Both stamps carry permanent-rate denominations for first-class letters, currently 85¢ for up to 30 grams (roughly 1 ounce).
The stamps were introduced by Canada Post on Twitter and on YouTube, where an 80-second video shows Star Trek fan Line Rainville in her home in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Rainville has renovated her basement to resemble the set of the original series. In the video, she materializes in the basement via the Star Trek transporter and admires the new stamps on two large envelopes.
“Oh my, best delivery ever!” she says.
The video ends with an intriguing message, “To be continued,” and a Canada Post website link.
The link includes the video with Rainville and images of the two stamps.
