Sending letters just became a lot more stylish for fans of Star Trek. The United States Postal Service recently unveiled four stamps celebrating the iconic TV show.

The stamps commemorate the 50th anniversary of the original series, which ran from 1966 to 1969.

Created by design firm Heads of State, the bold new stamps include images of the Starfleet insignia, the USS Enterprise, a crew member being beamed up, and a Vulcan salute. The images are symbolically set against the colors of the Starfleet uniforms — yellow, red, green, and blue. 

Each stamp will cost 49 cents, but because they're "forever" stamps, they'll always "live long and prosper" as First Class postage.
