This cover art has always inspired me. It was a collaborative effort; Production Illustrator Jim Martin designed the art, executing it in a series of progressive pencil sketches. The art was subsequently turned over to freelancer Mikido Uesugi and John Knoll.
Here is my version again using GrahamTG space art and Asteroids..
“Click on image to see full size”
I could not help it, after seen a beautiful space scene by a friend GrahamTG I had to render with my reboot / reimagined design..

Well now I have been busy, rendering yes and some more Star Trek using some background art by Ali Ries, GrahamTG and dadrian to bring some energy into them, normally I don’t do action type renders but here for the first time with Phasers firing all or Klingon torpedoes evading,, 99% in Lightwave and a tiny tweaking in Photoshop..
I am going back to doing my own reimagined constitution class this week and I am going if time permits some other designs from the federation moving on to Klingons for the first time since I worked on the bridge or corridors a few years ago.
That should get star trek out of my system for a while, so I have decided to attempt the Battlestar Galactica with my approach to its detailing and arrangement.
Mixed in with some of my own designs.. stay tuned for the WIPs (Work in Progress)
I think that all for now,, … … yes that it..
Oh wait There is a possibility that 3DGladiators will be making a return.
Resurrected my Oberth class mesh, USS Aries NCC-345 (No textures) and Ali Ries super nebula art, Crown Nebula .. I never went further with this as the fan film it was made for never moved beyond the start-up phase.
Star Trek “Its a Klingon D7”
USS Enterprise by Me, Klingon D7 by Prologic9 and the Background by GrahamTG . it’s a fun break from modelling to just render of a few images.. not in my comfort zone, really stretching now.. but thanks to the other artist for providing these resources
