Day 89 – Ensign Lon Suder

Day 89 - Ensign Lon Suder - star trek 365 by Lee Sargent 2018

Most Betazoids can sense other people’s emotions. I can’t even sense my own.

I enjoyed the character of Suder quite a bit, it introduced an interesting element to the Voyager crew and what to do with him considering they couldn’t just ship him off to a rehabilitation centre.  I also appreciate what they ended doing with him, giving him a complete story arc and showing a small piece of continuity in the Voyager ongoing story.

Day 88 – Sir, have you ever served with any Bajoran women?

You are throwing it all away! All of you!

This week has already gotten away from me so I was drawing this quite late in the day after a complete brain freeze on what to draw.  I just wanted to draw angry Kira and then had this in my head.

I like to imagine she’s arguing about what to order the committee for lunch and they’ve all said Subways and she wants Peri Peri chips because she knows that the subs always get soggy and are never to everyone’s taste.  I mean it’s not canon but I’m pretty convinced.

Day 87 – Perhaps today IS a good day to bake

Perhaps today IS a good day to bake

Worf baking a Tarvokian pound cake was possibly one of the most joyous of occasions for me as I realised what an hilarious character Worf really is.  I didn’t really care for the character all that much before that but his line in The Game just struck me as so deadpan brilliant.  Then I started paying more attention to Worf and realised that this character is a true comic gem, whilst never dropping to the realms of buffoon.

It was one of the earliest Star Trek 365 style drawings of him with his cake and so I celebrate that once again today.

This was actually designed specifically to go on a t-shirt (which I proudly bought myself yesterday).

You can buy your very own on my Threadless store.

The Naked Time

I’ve only done this one to get that sweet sweet “naked” SEO keyword traffic… boy are you guys going to be disappointed.

I’m not sure there’s any more enduring an image of Sulu than him running around the decks of the Enterprise swashbuckling.  I feel like I got the crazy Sulu face done too 🙂

Day 85 – George, Gracie and Spock – Happy Birthday to Leonard Nimoy

Day 85 - George, Gracie and Spock - Happy Birthday to Leonard Nimoy

George, Gracie and Spock – Happy Birthday to Leonard Nimoy

So yesterday’s Spock was going to be my birthday tribute to Leonard Nimoy but then this worked out so much better.  A wonderful scene in Star Trek The Voyage Home and Spock at his finest.  Respecting the rights of animals rather than arrogantly assuming they’d be down with coming to the future.  I think Star Trek IV gets a bad rep from me because it is too light and too “popular” but it’s a beautiful film carefully crafted by the late Leonard Nimoy and Ilove watching it every time I do sit down to do so.

Thank you Leonard Nimoy.

Day 84 – Amok Time

Amok Time

I got my days mixed up in all the craziness of late and thought for some reason that today was Leonard Nimoy’s birthday when in actual fact I was right in the first place and it’s tomorrow. So I expect to see a bit of a double up of Spock (not the worst thing in the world).

I wanted to have some fun with Spock weilding a lirpa so I checked out a bunch of similar reference shots to give him this deadly look.

Amok Time is such an amazing episode and as one of my patrons over on Patreon mentioned, it’s one of the TOS episodes that most benefitted from the updated CGI as the whole episode looks fantastic with Vulcan in all her glory.

Day 83 – Tsunkatse

Day 83 - Tsunkatse - star trek 365 by Lee Sargent 2018

Resistance is futile

I still have to marvel at the fact that we can say remember the time that The Rock fought Seven of Nine in an MMA fight.

In complete fairness I don’t recall this episode being good at all, in fact I barely remember it apart from the fact that Dwayne Johnson is in it and it must have been pretty cool shooting it.  Apart from that it feels like a terrible “cross-over” and I’ll never understand why wrestling showed up on SyFy channel or why they thought it would be a good crossover with Star Trek.

At any rate I wanted to portray the Pendari Champion as really huge and make Seven kind of tiny or super athletic against him.

This is just a fun piece, it was fun to draw and when I look at it I just see fun.

Day 82 – The USS Lakota fires upon the Defiant

The USS Lakota fires upon the Defiant

I have been promising people all year that I would indeed draw the Defiant and so when I decided to finally do it I started looking for reference shots and stumbled across this gem of a gif:

So I was like yeah that’s exactly how I’ll frame it and then I set about getting reference material for both – probably a little too detailed on the Lakota.  I could have gone much simpler there and captured the look just fine – sigh oh well.

I was happy with the phaser blast though 😀

Day 81 – Fire.

Day 81 - Fire. - star trek 365 by Lee Sargent 2018

Fire

It’s William Shatner’s birthday today (remember we’re ahead in Australia so it may be the 21st still where you are) and to celebrate I wanted to draw my second favourite Kirk scene.  My favourite is of course when he confronts God in Star Trek V but I’ve drawn that a couple of times now.

It’s an incredibly powerful and heroic moment when Spock and McCoy finish the torpedo and Kirk steps forward and orders Chekov to fire.

I still remember the first time I saw that scene and I have loved it ever since.  It is a very satisfying scene.

So the happiest of birthdays to Mr Shatner, thank you for being such a huge part of our lives.

Day 80 – Friday’s Child

Day 80 - Friday's Child - Star Trek 365 by Lee Sargent 2018

Friday’s Child

I’m telling anyone who’ll listen how good this episode is.  It had been years since I’d seen it and I caught it the other night and was reminded of what an awesome episode it is.  You have all the elements of Star Trek, everyone gets something to do and we have an extra TOS Klingon that I had completelyforgotten about, Kras.  Who is fantastic as a treacherous Klingon.

If you haven’t seen Friday’s Child for a while do go check it out!
