Registered Star Trek cover from Canada

I received huge registered Star Trek cover from Canada! I am big fan of Star Trek and this is fantastic surprise from my friends Lars and Trevor. I received complete set of new Star Trek stamps on cover and inside as well. New Star Trek stamps are issued by Canada Post on 27.04.2017. and they are dedicated to Star Trek captains and you can see their biggest enemies in background. But they issued one Star Trek set on 05.05.2016. I received before old Star Trek set, but without lenticular souvenir sheet which shows  the transporter room and the iconic episode “The City on the Edge of Forever.” I was lucky to receive this time this missing sheet, but it's hard to scan lenticular stamps properly, but i found this nice gif to show you how awesome is this.

Other stamps on cover are two new gummed souvenir sheets from limited edition Prestige stamp booklet, one self-adhesive stamp with Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) and one with shuttlecraft. Last stamp is sold only in coil and as a souvenir sheet in Prestige stamp booklet. And now I'll show you items from cover.

This is biggest item of all - 160 x 181 mm. Captains are arranged chronologically by TV shows release dates: Kirk (William Shatner) from The Original Series (1966–69), Picard (Patrick Stewart) from The Next Generation (1987–94), Sisko (Avery Brooks) from Deep Space Nine (1993–99), Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) from Voyager (1995–2001) and Archer (Scott Bakula) from Enterprise (2001–05).

This is self-adhesive version of stamps with captains, and with different face value - P.

As i mentioned before, this stamp is sold in coil, but also as a souvenir sheet in Prestige stamp booklet. This is also the smallest stamp in set.

This is back side of previous sheet with some facts about Starfleet Academy.

This is one more page from Prestige stamp booklet, this time only with captain Captain James T. Kirk from The Original Series and quote from science officer and first officer Spock.

This sheet was biggest surprise for me because i didn't know about it. This sheet you can find only in Prestige stamp booklet! This is famous Borg cube, this stamp with unusual shape is ‚made with holographic foil and multilayered embossing. and is largest stamp in set! All this fantastic stamps are designed by Kosta Tsetsekas and Adrian Horvath.

Thank you very much Lars and Trevor for this beautiful surprise! Live long and prosper!
