Space: the final frontier.

In color!

"Ably assisted"? (Team Spock, here. Boston represent!)

Can you spot the discrepancy here?

Will never not be creepy...

One of my favorite parts of this series is its cultural diversity. I recognize that pikkewyntjie posted the Ebony cover with Nichelle Nichols a couple months ago, but I really wish I could have gotten to it first!

A most fascinating source.

The discrepancy seems to be the date? The year specifically. From 79 shouldn't it go to 80 rather than 75? I surprised they hadn't decimalised the calendar by then. 12 months with a random number of days seems so inefficient. was a 4!!! So that's not it. As there's no up or down in space it can't be the angle of the Enterprise.... I can't see it?!
Maybe that 9 is really a 4? Because the issue is the upside down Enterprise on the bottom right.
I'd read that initially the Enterprise "saucer" was supposed to be on the "bottom" and that the bridge was to be positioned behind the deflector array. So the image could be from a pre-release before Roddenberry changed his mind about the ship orientation.
