Day 335 – T is for Tri Dimensional Chess – The ABCs of Trek Scribbles

I always knew it was going to be Tri-Dimensional Chess I just wasn’t sure who would be playing and then I thought about getting a two for one as I love drawing the Talosians.

Yes I know I’m giving them more Itchy and Scratchy mind powers here but maybe it’s just an illusion placed in your mind?

Day 334 – S is for Space Dock – The ABCs of Trek Scribbles

S is such a huge selection to choose from and I just felt like drawing the Space Dock so this is where we are.

I really should avoid painting in black, I always seem to approach it half heartedly and then everything dries different and it’s hard to have a good clean coverage.

It does add a nice swirly kind of pattern though.

Day 333 – R is for Resistance – The ABCs of Trek Scribbles

I just enjoy drawing the Borg and so here they are, with a reminder that it is not always futile to resist.

I also think (and I shouldn’t make this call already but I can revise) that this is my favourite of the set.

Day 332 – Q is for Qapla’ – The ABCs of Trek Scribbles

I have been in love with the idea of the great Tribble hunt ever since Odo asked if they still sang songs of it.  So when I think of Qapla’ I think of the Klingons hunting down what they thought were the last of the Klingon Empire’s mortal enemies – the Tribbles.

Of course there was a Tribble in Star Trek III so the great Tribble hunt very well could have been set after that but I like to imagine our mighty TOS Klingon commanders being sent out to wipe them out after the Deep Space K7 incident.

Day 331 – P is for Plexicorp – The ABCs of Trek Scribbles

Not now Madeline!

The  greatest mystery in Star Trek is what is it that Madelaine wanted.  Although I’m sure the novelisation might mention it (though I recently re-read it and nothing comes to mind). I like to think that Madelaine had the idea for transparent aluminum first and was about to suggest it Dr Nichols.

I feel the Star Trek 365 wouldn’t have been complete with Dr Nichols and Madelaine appearing at some point.

Day 330 – O is for Onlies – The ABCs of Trek Scribbles

One of my favourite images from original Star Trek is the broken tricycle from Miri. This foreshadowing of a childish world broken is wonderful and I have gone out of my way to draw the scene several times however this is my favourite.

Also admittedly the thought of just doing a line up of kids was not something I was keen on at all.

Day 329 – N is for No Win Scenario – The ABCs of Trek Scribbles

I was super keen to draw Kirstie Alley Saavik and I love the Wrath of Khan uniforms so I decided the No Win Scenario was going to be the real one rather than the Kobayashi Maru (of either prime or Kelvin timeline – either way there was always going to be an apple).

Day 328 – M is for Making It So – The ABCs of Trek Scribbles

I know I’ve put Picard in a couple of spots so I thought it would be nice to have him happily front and centre.

I love that there is a very clear mannerism for this and he really made it his own. 

I also realised that I kinda really enjoy drawing Jean-Luc, I’ve done it a lot in this year’s ST365.  Probably him more than anyone else which I wouldn’t have predicted at the start of the year.  I feel I’ve got a pretty good grip on his look now, practice makes nearly kinda not really but hey perfect.

Day 327 – L is for Lobes – The ABCs of Trek Scribbles

I love drawing the Ferengi but I do struggle with getting their likenesses for each of them separately.  On their own, you can obviously tell who the Ferengi is in context but when they’re together I find it harder to distinguish them.

The answer to that is of course to draw them together a lot of times.

I am glad the electric whip didn’t make it past season one TNG.

Day 326 – K is for Kolinahr – The ABCs of Trek Scribbles

K gave me a lot of trouble trying to decide, obviously there’s all the Klingon stuff that I could focus on and I had Kolinahr in the back of my mind but I didn’t want to follow up “I is for” with another Spock picture.

Then I liked the idea of Tuvok in the same position though without the pesky V’Ger to interrupt him. Then my challenge was to work out what Tim Russ would look like with long hair and then I decided on dreadlocks because mainly it would look cool.
