Re: Can I suggest an Art Contest?

As a non-3D artist, I would like to encourage contest ideas that don't necessarily involve making a spaceship or gizmo, which gives me no chance whatsover and I do not wish to embarass myself any more than strictly necessary.

I like this idea a lot:

"In the style of..." - a scene or a portrait either in the style of a famous artist (from any era up to present day) or emulating a specifc painting with Trek settings & characters.
I dibs: Andy Warhol style portrait of Dukat. He's such an egomaniac, I can just see him with that in his palace on Cardassia. Back when things were going well with the Dominion, that is...

I also like this one:

I'd like to see some of the non-humanoids from the Star Trek books, or those only mentioned in the canon, brought to life.
I've been thinking for a while what the Medusans might look like when they developed exoskeletons to let them interact better with Federation humanoids. Maybe I'll start working on that now, just in case...

Re: Can I suggest an Art Contest?

^ Nice, what's the wogneer creature from?

After another visit to the Trek Lit Forum, I'm only more interested in seeing characters from the lit or only mentioned in the canon. There are half a dozen lit series going on now, and hundreds of characters & species yet to be visualised.

Weekly Trek's gone and movies in the distant...distance. Let's see some new faces. That is, if they have faces.

Re: Can I suggest an Art Contest?

How about a look at Starfleet robots? I realize that we never really saw such (mostly because of budgetary restrictions), but I find it inconceivable that with all of the technology they have in that time, there seem to be no robots performing dangerous or tedious tasks, or even simply filling roles that even the least-ambitious person might find either demeaning or just plain boring. Where are the mining 'bots, the waiter-bots (an android would be overkill for such a task, don't you think?), the space-borne construction 'bots, the surgical 'bots?

Just a thought .

Re: Can I suggest an Art Contest?

These sound intriguing; care to elaborate? Around these parts, especially, "Mirror Universe" is pretty much synonymous with Trek; how would you define a "non-Trek" version? Do you mean "non-Starfleet" or something more fundamental?

And how would you define "other sci-fi in Trek roles?" A crossover of franchises or concepts, such as, say, Stargate in Star Trek, or what?

More, more! We insist!

There have been mirror universe stargate episodes before, and yes, there were goatees.

Re: Can I suggest an Art Contest?

I don't remember any goatees; I do remember a comment that it would be easier to tell if there were goatees.

The problem I see with non-Trek "mirror universe" art is that you need a baseline. With Trek, it's easy - add goatees (which I have to say, look smashing on the babes!) - okay, maybe it takes a bit more, but we see a lot of MU starships and uniforms and even characters, and it's clear what is going on. Stargate has the quantum mirror and numerous other ways of showing us alternate SGCs and Earths, but so far, I haven't seen anything terribly overt, like, say, the entire SG-1 team as Go'a'uld System Lords, robes and all. With other sci-fi, it's even harder - how do we recognize MU hobbits, or other concepts or franchises? I don't see any problems with occasional challenges that go outside Trek, but I think they need to have certain recognizable aspects to provide a basis for judgment; if we get too broad, then we start to lose that ability to judge how well the objectives have been addressed.

Re: Can I suggest an Art Contest?

Here's a suggestion for something I thought of recently...

If Starfleet built a battlestar, ala Galactica, what would it look like?

I'm sure it would be a lot cleaner than the "bucket." Would it still have the flight pods? Where would the warp engines be? Would it have nacelles?
