This incredible image was created by Matthew Wiley, who has reimagined the Star Trek universe in the style of vintage advertisement, a very cool and somewhat unusal direction to take. The Enterprise has had a full make over in the style of a classic American hot-rod road vehicle, beefing up the nacelles using element of a 1963 Thunderbird as well as other classic cars of the period.
The bridge has had a refit too, the Captain’s chair in particular now sports a plush comfortalbly padded leather cusion which would probably have Kirk watching his favortie movie on the viewscreen as opposed to threatening alien civilisations with made up technology. The duty stations have comportable padding on the chairs, where the helm and nav stations retain the full plastic form.
What I notice most, other than the captain’s chair, are the old skool tape reels embedded in the walls surround the bridge, giving it that real retro look.
Other Trek related art, and my personal favourites, are the Wrath Of Khan prints, including the re-fit Enterprise in drydock, Khan in a rhetoric pose, Kirk and crew in torpedo bay 2 with the photon tube carrying Spocks body, the Enterprise and Reliant firing phasers at each other plus a few scenes from The Search For Spock.
The reimagined Enterprise is available to purchase as a print in various sizes as well as t-shirts.
There are plenty of other cool things to see on Matt’s website so pop over and take a look and purchase one of those cool prints.
