“Live Long and Prosper” – a Vulcan Art Print
Some time ago I wanted to make a symbolic pop work themed on the Star Trek series in celebration to its upcoming 50th anniversary.
After giving it a little bit of thought, I came up with what should have been to me the most obvious solution.
The famous Vulcan greeting
It is strange that it took me quite a bit to get to it, even though Mr Spock and the Vulcans are always my preferred characters.
The greeting has become, over the last 50 years one of the best well know icons of Pop Culture and has been repeated in all versions of the series.
Created by Gene Roddenberry, Star Trek is an American entertainment franchise that began as a TV series in 1966
Many spin-offs of Star Trek were created along the last 50 years: The Animated Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Enterprise.
All are considered part of the Star Trek mythology.
There is also a series of films that helped Star Trek win and be nominated for awards and honors.
A wide range of other spin-offs, video games, novels, toys, a Las Vegas themed attraction and two museum exhibitions add up to fill cauldron.
The phenomenon initiated a cultural movement that even led to the creation of the Klingon language that characterized fans speak in the events that are organized all across the US and even some other countries.
