Clearly inspired by Spock’s space walk in Star Trek The Motion Picture, as much as I don’t completely concede the logic, it is a cool sequence, shot beautifully and I think one of Michael’s more likeable scenes. I’ve said it elsewhere but I think I need to wait to see all of Star Trek Discovery […]
I saw the first episode of Enterprise on a media preview tape lent to me with unfinished special effects with a group of friends who were not interested (they were more excited about the Buffy Season Five… or Six whenever she came back from the dead). The song threw me out, I hated it but […]
There are a couple of scenes that sum up the episode Caretaker for me, one of which is of course depicted above, as the Maquis and Starfleet confront the Caretaker together, it’s unmistakeably this episode. One of the other scene I didn’t choose though it is probably my favourite is at the end of the […]
The response to the question of what is the defining moment in the Star Trek Deep Space Nine pilot episode Emissary was loud and clear “It is not linear.” Everyone was right of course, this is the defining moment of DS9 and Sisko’s realisation that he must move on and embrace his new path. Before […]
I’m old enough to remember the first time I ever saw Encounter at Farpoint (as I mentioned over on Twitter I keep going to call it Fairpoint for some reason), it was a weird sensation because, there was no internet back then so we had no idea what might be going on apart from the […]
I really didn’t want to do this shot but I think it is too important a shot from the episode to avoid and besides, I’ve got 365 of these things to do, I may as well push myself further 😉 The reason I didn’t want to do it is that a) I’m not comfortable with […]
I know that it’s not the first episode that aired but it is the pilot episode and it’s interesting what refinements where to come. Despite the galactic barrier stuff (I gloss over it in my head) this is an exceptionally solid story. Kirk’s struggle with having to kill his friend because of what he is […]
I thought it fitting to start the 2018 Star Trek 365 project by featuring the episode where it all began, The Cage. Deemed too cerebral by television executives this was the original pilot for Star Trek that was rejected. In television history they commissioned a second pilot episode and the rest is of course history. […]
Okay apart from it being New Year’s Eve I’m so excited to be launching this tomorrow! I know exactly what the first illustration is going to be and I’ll give you a hint, we’re going back to where it all began!
I’m not drawing any Star Trek stuff on purpose right now, saving it for two days time LOL.
