The U.S. Postal Service is giving Trekkies an extra reason to mail things the old-fashioned way in 2016: four stamps celebrating the 50th anniversary of the original "Star Trek" television series.

The stamps are among a slate of new designs that the Postal Service just announced will be released in the coming year.

The "Star Trek" set features images based on the Starship Enterprise, a crewman being beamed up, the Starfleet insignia and the Vulcan salute made famous by Spock. The stamps were created by the design firm Heads of State under the art direction of Antonio Alcalá.

This isn't actually Star Trek's first foray into the final postal frontier: A stamp featuring the Enterprise was released in 1999 as part of a set celebrating the 1960s.

But space nerds will also appreciate two new stamps highlighting NASA's New Horizon mission to Pluto.
