I watched the Kelvin timeline trilogy over the Christmas break and I was struck by how much I adore the opening of Star Trek Beyond. I like the restlessness that this version of Captain Kirk has during the five year mission.
His journey was so different from Prime JTK, his whole life has been about conflict and settling into the right place must feel unnerving and it takes losing it to realise that he wants to stay.
It doesn’t hurt this scene that the score is unbelievably good either.
I’ve started work on the last two Star Trek 365’s.
Original Star Trek 365 illustrations are available to purchase and are posted at 8:00 am Brisbane QLD Australia time.
