Well, I did it! After 5 years of creating, I finally finished all 79 posters in my Trek Episode Series! At first, because it was the final episode, I was going to add as many of the characters as I could for the sake of posterity. But then, as much as I love the whole Enterprise crew, the real story here is between Kirk and Lester, and it just fell into place. Notice how the title mimics the female form! It seemed fitting that the final episode’s tag line dovetail with the first episode we saw Kirk in: Where No Man Has Gone Before. And one can only wonder, if the original series wasn’t canceled, how we would have seen Uhura, Chapel, and many other female character evolve in the writing during the budding Feminist movement. I’m sure fan fiction and countless novels picked up the torch here, but there will always be room for more!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this series of movie-style-inspired posters of the Original Series episodes. I really delighted in creating them, even when it was an episode I didn’t like, and it was fun to give them the thrilling mystery of the weekly serials. What a ride!
If you’ve missed any, please be sure to see all of my Star Trek Movie Poster Gallery here. What a pleasure it’s been to make this little dream of mine come true! The only thing that would make me happier is your feedback! Please let me know what your favorites were and why, I’d love to hear from you!
Down to the last three! Yet, as episodes go, this was another of my lesser favorites, although I did like Lincoln and Surak, but couldn’t stand slimy Colonel Green!
Since this was basically a retread of ‘good vs. evil’, like Arena, it was hard to give this episode a fresh take. But then I got a brainstorm; 9 characters in a game, and given the TV game shows of my youth, The Hollywood Squares seemed a natural fit! I even made the font on the squares as close to the original as I could!
Getting close to the end! Here’s Requiem for Methuselah – I always felt bad for sweet Rayna (as heart-fully played by the beautiful Louise Sorel) and Kirk was so selfish. But Flint was really a tragic character, and so well acted by James Daly. Note all of Flint’s reincarnations on the wall! And my apologies to Eric Clapton for borrowing his lyrics here, but they seemed so appropriate!
Only 3 left, Thanks for your support! You can see all my poster to date here.
My Trek Posters are back! Down to the last 5! Here’s The Way to Eden — It took me a while to figure out how to present this bizarre episode; I ended up making it a 23rd century Dear Abby letter from “Edgy Ensign” to “Spocky”. I especially like Spock’s pensive look! I found the mandala design on a coloring page for moms, and added psychedelic hues, giving Dr. Severin a halo effect.
Coming down the wire on the last 9 TOS movie-style posters! Hard to believe! I’ll miss this series when I’m done, but where TOS is concerned, I’m sure I’ll always come up with something else!
Here’s Whom Gods Destroy, yet another Captain-gone-mad episode and a semi-rehash of Dagger of the Mind. But Steve Inhat as Garth was deliciously loony, and Yvonne DeCarlo’s a lovely limber dancer!
