Star Trek has moved into an entirely new frontier with the upcoming launch of Star Trek Tarot.
Star Trek Tarot
A new company named Telekiad has unveiled a brand new licensed line of Star Trek Tarot decks. The decks are the culmination of years of research and collaboration, matching the 78 ancient Tarot cards one-to-one with 78 classic original Star Trek episodes, with the two-part episode “The Menagerie” counting as one. (The unaired pilot “The Cage” is represented on two bonus cards.) Tarot experts have helped to hone the deck’s entire design to honor each card’s centuries of layered meanings and its many traditional and modern associations.
Professional artists have created original Star Trek imagery and graphics for each card in a style that is a respectful representation of every original episode’s chosen scene and appropriate for a Tarot deck. Professional card printers ensure the highest casino-quality cards.
“I came up with the idea to match the 78 Tarot cards with the original 78 aired Star Trek episodes because it was a Tarot deck I wanted,” said Telekiad Lead Designer Mark “Adam” Baum. “We realize that Star Trek and Tarot is an unusual combination, far from obvious, but it works surprisingly well with incredible depth to the card matchings.”
Star Trek Tarot is available in three distinct packages. The base 80-card deck with storage box retails for $29.55. You can also get the same deck with a 120-page paperback tutorial for $39.95.
There is also a special limited edition set with 80 plastic cards, a hardcover version of the tutorial, and a custom box that retails for $59.95.
Telekiad is also offering a special mini-deck for Star Trek: The Animated series with 22 cards for $19.95. There is also a limited edition set of the TAS mini-deck available with all-plastic cards for $29.95.
The Star Trek Tarot decks are available for pre-order today at StarTrekTarot.com. Orders received by September 30th will ship in early December.
