Incidentally, this is my second cover to feature only the Enterprise, with no representation of the human cast members.

Don't know why that strikes me as significant, but. . . .

...and the general public now thinks the Enterprise was designed to be submersible, thanks to Abrams. Sigh.

Gonna be interesting to see how a proper TOS version of the idea plays out, though! Just the thought of it is exciting!

That's an awesome cover - you have not lost your knack for just the right cover to grab you.

I love seeing the Enterprise - it's almost like one of the characters that is essential to the show.  It's fun that you are expanding our view of the interior, but I still like to see the exterior shots of the ship going through the wringer!

And after being underwater, the Enterprise might need a good wringing...

A point of my tale -- and one often lost on that general public -- is that a spaceship is not a submarine. Their functions are, in fact, almost directly opposite!

Here's a peek a some of the problem!!

Lol.   Nice facepalm to Into Darkness.   As if it needed one :-P 

I know the saucer was unofficially designed for landing using thrusters but I was never a fan of the notion that the Enterprise could land and take off.  It's shape is very awkward for gravity (depending on the size of the planet or planetoid I suppose) and the plasma backwash from impulse would surely be very bad for a planet?

Suddenly I am reminded of this scene from Futurama

In my teens I conceived the notion of the Enterprise being forced to make planetfall, and doing so upside down, using the engine nacelles essentially as skis!

You will NOT be seeing this in NEW VISIONS!

I finally broke down and ordered the first two volumes from Amazon.

As you read them, Shane, please keep in mind the nearly vertical learning curve on this series!

Some more tinkering with the Captain's Cabin "set". I'm leaning toward a pastiche of all three seasons.

Bit more noise on this one than I usually apply.

Ok Chief, I'm going to be honest about the cover of #18.

I thought it was a visual in-joke.  Call it a combination of curious bubble placement mixed with some mild dyslexia.

When I first saw the cover this is how it read in my head:

"What Pain It Is To Draw"

My next thought was, "he doesn't *draw* these photonovels... he's making a funny"

<facepalm>

I'm going back to bed for the rest of the week.

Whenever I notice those books in a scene, I would wonder what titles they were.

Of course they were purposely stacked that way.

Definitely will, JB. I know your technical abilities when it comes to doing these has grown in leaps and bounds just through the experience of actually doing them since the first few issues that are in the first volume TPB. And I know they will look better and better as the series progresses just as your pencils and inks have improved over the years in comics, though probably not as this steep of a curve! I'm most looking forward to the stories and getting to experience all these "lost" episodes of TOS by someone whose writing I enjoy and who I feel really gets Star Trek and its characters.

After having M'Ress appear, I started thinking about a story I might do with her,. "Thinking" is already too strong a word. This is way, way, way, way, way, way, way, way, WAY back in the back of my mind. But I was tinkering in Strata and came up with this, thinking maybe her Dad is an Ambassador or an Admiral. By having a 3D version, I don't have to search Google for different angles.
