Acclaimed artist/designer Juan Ortiz continues his great commission to express his Star Trek love by creating retro pulpy movie posters for every single episode of Star Trek: The Original Series. This month’s batch includes “Requiem of Methuselah” (season 3, episode 19), a Trek gloss on Shakespeare’s The Tempest, in which the crew of the Enterprise becomes afflicted with
ADHD Rigellian Fever and has to score some Ritalin Ryetalyn from an immortal named Flint; and “Spock’s Brain” (season 3, episode 1), which is considered one of the stupidest episodes of ST:TOS ever. (“Brain and brain! What is brain!?”)
Wrote Leonard Nimoy in I Am Spock: “Frankly, during the entire shooting of that episode, I was embarrassed – a feeling that overcame me many times during the final season of Star Trek.” Smart looking print, though.
