Ever since Star Trek first aired on television in 1966, the series has had a strong influence on pop culture. In 1976, due to the show's rising popularity in syndication, Topps released a series of collectible trading cards featuring full-color images from the classic television series created by Gene Roddenberry, as well as synopses and information on the cast and crew of the Starship Enterprise. This first-ever compilation includes the fronts and backs of all 88 cards and 22 rare and hard-to-find stickers (which were originally sold one per pack), as well as text and commentary by Star Trek insiders Paula M. Block and Terry J. Erdmann-guaranteed to please the die-hard Trekkie as well as a whole new generation of fans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I truly love the coloured photos of the cards in this collection! The 4 repro Topps cards inserted in the back cover are a very nice touch from the publisher. It's a good representation of the nostalgic bubble gum cards, and captures from the Original Star Trek series. The "Mirror, Mirror" captures, alongside Ruk, the Mugato, the Space Vampire, the Klingons, the Talosians, the Romulans, the Balok puppet scarecrow....they are all here!
