You all just have to checkout this fantastic TOS poster by Dusty Abell.

This poster has every major character & ship that appeared in TOS. I cant figure out what's missing!

That. Is. Awesome.

 

Some really cool and clever stuff in there, too--like young Pike and Zarabeth pictured inside the Guardian's "screen", and the use of the Triskellion arena's flooring.

 

There's a key to the poster in the link below...not that I need it!

Dusty has been sending me updates on this for a while. It's a magnificent piece of work. Quite mind-boggling.

What a pity there are people who cannot simply enjoy it, and who have to seek out "missing" characters and elements. Something distinctly missing in THEM, I should say.

What a pity indeed. Woe is me.  I Wasn't looking for who was missing. I was looking for who was there. I had just been watching The Ultimate Computer. So I looked for them.  I hadn't suspected that mentioning I didn't see them was a revelation about my being incomplete.

I had not seen the " Poster" until just now. The one with the actual artwork that is to say. When I was looking for the M5 before I had clicked on the link with the list of names. Having seen the art now. I must say the artist did a fantastic job capturing the ships, characters etc.. I have no problem knowing who was who even without the list of names. It was well done.

I was looking at some of Dusty's other art. They really bring back fond memories. Thanks for posting the link to his Star Trek poster Bill.

I seem to recall suggesting to Dusty that he go buy a box of chocolate bars, and sell them for X bucks each, offering a free poster with each. . . .

Incidentally, one of the things that really impresses me about this piece is how few lines Dusty was able to use to capture so many likenesses. A few quick strokes, and 99% of the characters are instantly recognizable, and the rest after scarcely a moment's thought.

I respect his choices as to who he included, and who he didn't, but this skill makes me wish he could have included EVERYBODY!!
