There’s that great line in Star Trek: Insurrection: “Can anyone remember when we used to be explorers?” Star Trek, at its heart, is about exploration. Sometimes that means exploring strange new worlds. Sometimes that means exploring the human condition. Often, it’s both. That’s what I love about Trek. And it’s something that I think both Discovery and Picard have done really nicely. So I wanted to showcase the Enterprise-E doing this favorite activity. A Sovereign-class starship, much is made of the […]
So, I call this piece of Seven of Nine fan art “Haunted.” Because how could she not be? This piece was inspired by Seven’s appearance in the Star Trek: Picard episode “Stardust City Rag.” In particular, I was thinking about Seven’s conversation with Picard towards the end of the episode. And so I got thinking about Seven, about how haunted she might be. And this is the piece that resulted!
I’m calling this Star Trek piece “The Flag Ship,” because it features two of the most famous flag ships in Starfleet history: The USS Enterprise NCC-1701-A and the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-E. Captain Kirk and Captain Picard meet (again?). Mostly, the Constitution-refit class and the Sovereign class starships are two of my all time favorite designs. I had a very strong urge to draw them together–both movie-designed starships–and see what happens. I hope you enjoy the piece as much as I […]
Resistance if futile. Or… it’s not. You’ll have to ask Seven of Nine. She probably knows. If you’ve been following along this site for a while, you probably know that Star Trek: Voyager is among my favorite Trek series. (Okay, look–my “favorite” Trek changes from day to day… that’s just how it is). Anyway, one of my favorite characters on Voyager was Seven of Nine. And if you’ve been paying attention to the Star Trek: Picard promotional material, you know that Seven […]
It’s no secret that I love Star Trek. And the most recent iteration of Trek is no exception. Star Trek Discovery is fantastic. (So is Star Trek Picard, but that’s a different post.) Anyway, I decided to create a piece that celebrated my love of Trek old and new. I call this piece “Passing the Torch.” I imagine Enterprise coming in for decommissioning around the same time Shenzhou was launched. It’s true, that timeline could be off. But with a little bit of imagination, […]
A couple of months ago, I finished a piece that featured a Romulan D’Deridex class Warbird. I was really happy with the way the spaceship turned out. But I was never super thrilled with the background. So the other day I decided to go back and create a new background for this piece. This is unusual for me. I’m one of those artists that is always looking forward. Once a piece is finished, I post it and move on–no matter […]
Yes, yes… that “There’s coffee in that nebula” meme has been done to death. But it endures. Mostly because it’s, well, you can relate. I want coffee in the morning. Kathryn Janeway, captain of the starship Voyager wants coffee in the morning. Somehow it makes Janeway a bit more human, a bit less distant–and that’s just perfect for her character. So, here’s Captain Janeway, coffee mug in hand. The background represents the galaxy-spanning voyage she and her crew completed, from Delta […]
“It’s always a game of chess with the Romulans.” — Jean-Luc Picard The Romulan Warbird is one of my all time favorite adversary starship designs. It’s so elegant, so threatening–and entirely Romulan. It looks like it’s smiling at you as it’s powering up it’s disruptors. I wanted the background to echo the subterfuge that Romulans are famous for, so I thought about hiding a planet in a nebula. There’s probably a Romulan base on that planet. Or not. You never […]
Uhura was a character that I always wish received a little more development throughout the original series. I mean, I get that TOS was focused on Kirk, Spock, and McCoy. But a little extra development would have been nice. Even still, Nichelle Nichols did an amazing job in creating the character. I really like the way this piece turned out! If you’d like to purchase prints of this piece, check out my online store.
Okay, as I’ve said before on this site, the Enterprise-D is probably my all-time favorite starship. So it was a lot of fun to illustrate this piece of Star Trek fan art! That’s not to say it was a non-stop fun fest. The lifeboats on the Enterprise-D in particular were kind of tricky… and painstaking. But it was worth getting all that detail right in the end! If you like this piece, don’t be shy! Let me know in the […]
