Second in a series of three Star Trek: The Original Series spaceship paintings.

It seems fair to say I am a bit of a Trekkie. Being in high school when NBC's Star Trek premiered on television, it did grab my attention.

The spaceships,The USS Enterprise, the D-7 Klingon Battle Cruiser both designed by Walt Jeffries, and the Romulan Bird of Prey planned and constructed by Wah Ming Chang certainly raised my eyebrows.

The Enterprise Incident premiered as the third year's 57th episode by the same name. Instead of a black sky with stars, I borrowed the look of the Elephant's Trunk IC 1396 nebula in the constellation Cepheus.
