(St. Cloud, Minnesota-AP) -- A "Star Trek" fan from Minnesota
is going where few stamp-lovers have gone before.

Bill Kraft will be honored today for his efforts to get the
Postal Service to issue a Star Trek stamp.

His efforts paid off when the public voted on new stamps
celebrating each decade of the century. A Star Trek stamp was among
the winning images for the 1960s series.

Kraft became a "Trekkie" after watching the 1979 movie, "Star
Trek--The Motion Picture."

The St. Cloud Post Office will present Kraft with a framed sheet
of the 1960s stamps this afternoon.
