Somehow this one got by me--even before the current Endeavor crew did their Star Trek poster, the Expedition 21 crew of the International Space Station did this Next Gen poster in 2009.  It was Commander Mike Finke of Expedition 18 who was interviewed for the new First Contact Next Gen film DVD, pointing out the international cooperation aboard.  "I think Gene would be proud of us," he said.  (Even though Expedition 19 had a fairly ugly episode of Americans and Russians ordered to use different toilets.)  Expedition 21 was the second six-person crew, even more international.  The crew of Expedition 27 has just left the space station..  (A really big version of this Expedition 21 poster is available through this link.)
