Day 109 – Deep Space K7

Deep Space K7

Ben Sisko is sent to Deep Space K7 located near Sherman’s Planet.   After the Khitomer Accords were signed by the Klingons and the Federation Sherman’s Planet was set upon by the Cardassian Union and after stripping the planet of its natural resources they have abandoned it allowing the Federation to attempt to restore the planet’s prosperity.

ILittle do they know a stable wormhole that leads to the Gamma Quadrant lays dormant waiting to be awoken…

I really wish that K7 had shown up on TNG at some point, I’m not sure if it’s ever mentioned again apart from Tribble related episodes but I always liked the design.

I’m very excited about tomorrow’s Alt Trek, there will be Janeway.

Day 108 – When the wallsss fell

Day 108 - When the wallsss fell - star trek 365 by Lee Sargent 2018

Earthling. I have heard every word you have said.

The Enterprise encounters a reclusive civilization of reptilian beings known as the Gorn; in an effort to foster understanding, their leader transports himself and Captain Picard onto the surface of a planet where they are hunted by a beast.

Yeah I’m enjoying myself with these little AltTrek diversions 🙂

We’re off to a familiar’ish space station tomorrow…

Day 107 – The Clockwork Disease

Day 107 - The Clockwork Disease - star trek 365 by lee sargent 2018

The Clockwork Disease

I wanted to take a sideways step and do a short series of “what-if” illustrations crossing over the different series.

In the unwritten episode The Clockwork Disease, Kirk, Spock and McCoy beam down to the remote New Providence colony after failed attempts to contact them.  They discover that the colony has been wiped out by an unknown race.

“My god Jim, this man is part mechanism.”

“Fascinating Captain, it would appear that the Borg operate under a hive mind.”

“Individuality is NOT irrelivant, it’s what makes us who we are.  We… need our indivduality to function.”

I know that the comics have done a Kirk / Borg storyline but I wanted to reimagine them as if they were on TOS and not in the Kelvin universe.  My only concession is that they probably wouldn’t have done the green eye.

I think I would be very interested in expanding on this idea, tomorrow I’m visiting TNG… kind of.

Captain Archer activates the Kir’Shara

I love the Enterprise season four Vulcan trilogy, it gave us some of the best Vulcan material since Star Trek IV and set the Vulcans back onto the path that we would later come to know them.  I think it fixed some of the mistakes of the earlier seasons in how they tried to portray Vulcan in general.

This was another Twitter suggestion:

I’m probably going to take a break from the suggestions for the time-being (I’ll come back to them) as I’m thinking a quick series of alternative universe trips…

Also the Star Trek the Motion Picture poster is going to go on sale later this week – more details to come.

Day 105 – The Immunity Syndrome

Day 105 - The Immunity Syndrome - star trek 365 by Lee Sargent 2018

Spock approaches the giant space amoeba in the shuttlecraft Galileo

It was pointed out to me over on Patreon that after two weeks with the flu I should be very familiar with the immunity syndrone.  Funny enough I did watch this episode whilst crook and I love what they did with the remastered version.  I’ve always liked this episode, it’s literally big picture thinking and McCoy and Spock fighting over who gets to risk themselves over science is quite enjoyable to see.

This was another suggestion from the other day:

I also had some fun inking in the entire page with black marker, the fumes were quite significant.

Star Trek V The Final Frontier

I love Star Trek V.

I don’t care what you think, I don’t care about the production problems, or the underwelming special effects or the wrong number of decks.  I love the ambition of Star Trek V and the scope of it.  I love the character building and I love “excuse me, what does God need with a starship?”.

I love the addition of Sybok, of course Spock’s brother would be banished and in search of a greater being.  I think that the character doesn’t get enough credit in the franchise universe and adds an extremely interesting componet to Spock and Sarek.

The teaser poster would have been significantly easier than this one lol.

Now, the posters are going to go on sale individually.  They are going to be more expensive than the regular pieces.  I will give plenty of warning of when they go up.  In the meantime the first four posters are being made available in postcard sets and will up for preorder in the next couple of days.  If they’re popular then the remaining posters will join them as I complete them.

Day 103 – Jake and Nog up to mischief

Day 103 - Jake and Nog up to mischief - star trek 365 by Lee Sargent 2018

Jake and Nog are going to be caught.

Well I was a little lost for what to draw today so I opened it up on Twitter for suggestions.  Not something I tend to do a lot because people can get disappointed if I don’t get a chance to do their choice.  That said the overwhelming response (around 70 plus suggestions) were actually quite useful to gauge general themes of what everyone wants to see.  I’m going to go through and collect everyone’s answers and see how many I can muster.

The one I picked was:

There was no massive deliberation, the word mischief just grabbed me by the scruff of my neck and demanded to be brought to life.  I always felt that Jake and Nog were good for the show, they added an element to what DS9 was about, families living on a station.

Day 102 – A Group of Living Legends

Day 102 - A Group of Living Legends - star trek 365 by Lee Sargent

Captain Harriman welcomes the group of living legends aboard the Enterprise B

Captain Harriman has got to have had the absolutely worst day and that includes the time Chekov go a ceti eel in his ear.  Imagine taking your new ship out for the first time and not only failing to rescue a number of people aboard two ships but alos losing the most famous of Starfleet heroes.  I mean what was his next day like?  How do you recover from that?!?

Also ALL captured on camera.

Personally I would have just waited until Wednesday.

Day 101 – Commander William T Riker

Commander William T Riker

Riker is probably my favourite TNG character, only really rivaledby Worf who has steadily endeared himself to me over the years. Riker is an explorer at heart and I wanted to depict him in a really alien landscape, well as alien as the Star Trek sets can muster sometimes, so weird coloured boulders equals really alien LOL.

A nice straight forward one after yesterday’s.

Day 100 – Deep Space Nine is surrounded by Klingons

Day 100 - Deep Space Nine is surrounded by Klingons - star trek 365 by Lee Sargent 2018

The Way of the Warrior

Um wow.  100 days straight and I haven’t missed a day yet.

I would have loved to get the borg piece completed for day 100 but my head cold had other ideas.  So instead I give you DS9 surrounded by the Klingons from The Way of the Warrior in big A3 size.  I was so hesitant to do this one because I’m not a technical illustrator, I don’t draw straight lines or perfect dimensions and I hate painting space.

So I thought for the 100th lets push hard and include every thing that I don’t enjoy doing in one picture and I have to admit it was kinda fun to do.

Plus I knew I had to do DS9 sooner or later and I always loved the scen of it surrounded by the Klingon fleet.

Thank you to everyone who has supported me and the project so far, it’s been a honest to god blast.  Now on to the next 265…
