    Star Trek Captain Kirk Production Cel and Master Production Background Setup (Filmation, 1973). You are going to want to beam up this treasure! This landmark animated series was carefully crafted by Gene Roddenberry and Filmation to be a worthy and cohesive continuation of the original live-action Star Trek TV series. Many key elements of the "Trek" canon were created in this series, such as James Kirk's middle name of "Tiberius." This setup is a hand-painted 12 field 3-peghole cel featuring the irrepressible Captain Kirk of the starship USS Enterprise. He is 7.25" tall and obviously running into danger! The action-packed cel is placed on a two-layer hand-painted Master production background. The complex and detailed background is labeled BG 168A and the overlay is labeled A also. Actor William Shatner reprised his role as ship's captain when he voiced the character in this cartoon. With layouts drawn by top animation talent, such as Emmy Award winning artist Bob Kline, the background is a mini-masterpiece all by itself. In Fine condition.
