Enterprise-D painting in Picard's ready room

Is there a high-res version of that anywhere? I believe Andrew Probert painted it.

Back when TNG first started, you could get this poster with enough proofs of purchase from Cheerios or some other product. I'm sure there's a high res version somewhere

Re: Enteprise-D painting in Picard's ready room

Yeah, that's right. The Cheerios promotion.
I got my Ent-D poster from Cheerios.

It's been hanging up on my wall ever since I got it.
When was that, 1988???

Hell, most of you kids weren't even born yet.

Re: Enteprise-D painting in Picard's ready room

It's a wonderful painting, but I can't help but think of that line from PCU, paraphrased:

"You're putting a picture of the ship on the ship? Don't be that guy."

Re: Enteprise-D painting in Picard's ready room

I like the idea of the captain having a painting of his current command in his ready room. Although Probert painted it in real life, has there ever been a novel reference as to who painted it in universe? Maybe Starfleet has an official portrait painter who is commissioned to paint any new commissioned ships.

Well, obviously I was - I wish I still had mine, though - and yeah, had to be about '88... Not that I feel old or anything...

Re: Enteprise-D painting in Picard's ready room

One thing I think JMS did right on Babylon 5 was to have pictures and paintings of green Earth in the quarters of the human characters. Like JMS, I too always found it odd that people who work and live in space would decorate their quarters with the very thing they are surrounded by all the time — i.e. ships and space and stars, oh my.

Rick Sternbach painted the background, and Andrew Probert painted the foreground.

Re: Enteprise-D painting in Picard's ready room

It is an awesome picture. I wish I got a copy of it, but I dont think we had the same sort of promotion here in the UK. But then I was only 6 in 1988 so probably wouldn't remember it if we did. lol

Re: Enteprise-D painting in Picard's ready room

Over the decades I've had this picture on my wall, I've always been amused by a certain detail--the lighting effects on the hull.

The red "nebula" in the lower left reflects as red off the saucer section, while the yellow "galaxy" reflects as yellow off the star drive section.

A lovely effect, I really like the detail.

But seriously... the red phenomenon is likely thousands of light years in one direction, the yellow thousands of light years in another direction. I doubt the colored light would travel that far and still affect a colored tint on the hull, as if it was a spotlight a kilometer away.

Still a fantastic illustration, one of my faves in all ST.

Thanks!

John Dwyer, our set dresser, loved it and agreed to accept it on loan for the run of the series, to be returned to us when the show ended,... but....
What is the "but..."?

Re: Enteprise-D painting in Picard's ready room

At some point after it appeared on the show, this painting was donated to the carrier Enterprise. Roughly a decade ago, it was on display in the ship's library (which also had a pair of Star Trek books at the time); it's probably still there.

Much of the ship's signage c. 2001 also featured a Star Trek Enterprise: a schematic view of the refit 1701/1701-A.
