Aw, Spocks beard was the best bit of that episode, you should have kept it in. Nice painting though, very atmospheric.
The most interesting bit for me was the animation though. I've never seen someone animate like that before when they first start playing around with 3D. You've done it in a very 2D cell animation style with moving flat planes to create the motion, almost exactly like the Trek animated series. You've used 3D to create 2D animation, very cool.
