November Art Challenge - The Lensman
 
Was a busy month for me, and couldn't think of much...until the last few days. Unfortunately I've been sick as a dog in those last few days, but I managed to get my entry done....would've liked to have worked on it in better conditions, but alas.....

Everything has been recreated from scratch except the words "Star Trek" and the bantam info on the left.

This entry will probably be lost on anyone who wasn't there in the 70's. For those of you that were, hope it brings back fond memories. In the pre-vcr days, these things were the ultimate.

Nice! IIRC, I finally obtained them all many years ago....and while mine are not in storage, they are in a large book box, at the bottom of a stack of boxes, in my closet. In fact I believe I've even got doubles of a few.

For this kid in the 70's, for whom watching Star Trek without a seeming shit ton of UHF "snow" was an incredible rarity, these books were the Holy Grail of Aweseome!
The first one I got as a kid was "Where No Man Has Gone Before", the second photonovel released. Which was the first one you guys got?

I thought about it, but then remembered that this episode is from an alternate universe where Star Trek had a different life, but it still ended in the 70's. Plus Shatner in real life doesn't look as old as he does here. :guffaw:

You'll also notice that I didn't use the TMP bridge either. Just color shifted the blinkie panels to blueish-purple to simulate "future Enterprise". I was on a budget.;)

Thanks again for the kind words everyone! This challenge was much more difficult than even I thought it would be!:)

Edit: I just noticed that this version is missing a tiny "tm" after the words "Star Trek" under the picture. Ah, the last minute rush of tweaking a final entry, racing against the deadline!! It was actually there in one version. LOL!

Didn't they sell these in the old book mobiles that used to visit the school back in the day?

Good question. While I remember book mobiles, I can't recall ever having seen one. I do know that my junior high school library had several photonovels though.
