Two of my faves, a 'Crossbow' series to go along with my TOS-era ship design .

Those are all very cool!

Here's one I did for the Dec 2009 Challenge here... we were tasked to bring back a one-appearance character, and there's only one TOS choice for me in that regard.

Re: The Library of Star Treks That Never Were - Book cover designs

Cool thread Ptrope! I've been working on my own fictional series (for years, sadly) and still working out the chronology. As usual for my Trek work of this nature, it's not quite the Trek you think it is. At any rate, here's where it all started, back in 1956.....








And this is near the series end, around 1973








(yes, I'm aware of the typo)

Speaking of Tech Manuals, someone (MadMan1701?) posted an image of a classic era Saladin type scout but done in the style of the original Tech Manual. I thought it'd be cool to see if the whole manual could be updated like that as part of a collaborative effort by the Fan Art community. These days we've got all the stuff needed, between 3D modelling programs, Poser, Photoshop, Word, etc.

Fantastic! I'd love to see these linked to larger versions - they really look authentic

Thanks Ptrope! Both you and Arcas have done fantastic work as well! I could make them a bit larger, however I don't want to get too large as a certain overall effect is lost. Arcas has some brilliant covers, but I have to scroll to see the whole cover.

Any thoughts on that tech manual suggestion?

reminds me of star trek bookcovers in my dreams of going to bookstores. One had a skull hologram over the lower part of a saucer seen in a 3/4 view from below.

Here's the latest 'found' novel, a crazy "what if" from a Trek universe that never was nor ever should be:
