Here is Star Trek as it might have been, Star Trek as it should have been, with a realistic portrait of a future in which man takes all of his imperfections with him into the stars. Because what Roddenberry failed to see, and what Harlan Ellison tried to show him, is that the imperfectability of man does not preclude the doing of great deeds, either individually or collectively. What matters is what do you do with the bad apples once you discover them, and what checks and balances do you put in place to handle the occasional lapses that occur even at the level of command.

I would have said something about how awesome this entire thing is, but I got distracted by that stray lock of hair on Jim's forehead...
...and then even more distracted by his neckline. Oh dear.

One thing I might suggest. Instead of the "generic" red element to enclose the chararcters, I'd use the Guardian itself and some of the ruins, faded, so that the characters stand out as they do now (keep the red, just use the Guardian).

Very cool poster!

Wasn't this season one? Chekov wasn't in it then so shouldn't Walter Koenig not be there? I mean I love him and all...

:iconmoiramurphy:
moiramurphy Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2009
you are correct, Koenig should not be in the credits; I just copied and pasted that text from my other poster.

It's not really important, though, is it? I mean, if you look closely under the restricted label it says "something something chicken stew all night long all night"

You can make your own judgement from that.

Ah. Well I have a tendency to nitpick.

And I totally didn't see the chicken soup until after one of the other comments pointed it out. O:

"something something chicken stew all night long"

Do you mind if I quote you on that?

Anyhow, this is beautiful, and one of my top ten favourite episodes!

You know, I actually thought this was a serious movie poster until I read the credits at the bottom... :XD:

Anyway, your talent is *amazing*. If you don't do stuff like this for a living, you probably should, because these art pieces are just *magnificent*- no kidding. :worship:

I *do* have a request, though. You said that there would be 'more to come'... will you do an "Amok Time" one soon? Please? I would absolutely LOVE it, it's my favorite episode. I understand if you don't, but if you need ideas for specific episodes... :shrug:
