Images of my childhood: Spock poster

star-trek-spock

This poster adorned my wall and the walls of many other young fans of the original “Star Trek” series.

Leonard Nimoy as Spock, phaser in hand, shuttle craft in the background.

I don’t know much of the history of this image – a publicity shot from the original series – but by the time the series had blossomed into a fan phenomenon in the early 1970s, somebody was making a lot of money selling this poster.
