Ah space, the final vacation frontier.

Who wouldn’t want to get away to all those wide open spaces, those endless starlit nights, those plants teeming with fun and adventure.

(For the purposes of this giddily happy intergalactic holiday post, let’s pretend that things like Alien xenomorphs and Imperial Stromtroopers aren’t around to harsh out vacay bliss.)

While it may be possible in real life just yet, the good people at iam8bit Gallery have asked 40 talented artists what a postcard from a host of fictional planets might look like, and the results are spectacularly good, and a whole heap of fun!

Book me in for the 8 planet, warp 10 tour of the galaxy please and hold the Cylons!

You can check out the full collection here.
