To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Star Trek The Next Generation (which was 2017) I wanted to do an illustration. My first attempt failed and instead I decided to do an illustration for every Star Trek episode (a lifelong project). So seeing as were a month away from the 31st anniversary of TNG here is an illustration based on the very first episode – Encounter at Farpoint.
The idea was to sum up the main talking points from the episode and, besides the obvious of putting all the crew on it, I thought I’d do an interpretation of the “encounter” and create a bit of interest – what is that?
Also the other big event and catalyst for most of the events in the episdoe is Q who is seen here sternly glancing over the entire said encounter.
