“Mr. Scott, an alien object of unbelievable destructive power is less than two days away from this planet. The only starship in interception range is the Enterprise. Ready or not, she launches in twelve hours.”
Bob Peak’s superb ‘Beam me up Scotty’ artwork was so striking and impressive that the imagery was used for the worldwide marketing campaign for Robert Wise’s sci-fi epic “Star Trek: The Motion Picture”, the first big screen cinematic outing for Captain Kirk & the crew of the starship Enterprise.

Originally rolled (as issued) this fantastic looking poster displays superbly and perfectly suits Bob Peak’s beautiful design. With a bright spectrum of vivid colour tones it represents a fine piece of very collectable original science fiction film poster movie memorabilia from the much loved TV / Movie series.
