    The New Year is approaching, and as a certain notorious six year old once said to his long-suffering stuffed tiger: “Where are the flying cars? Where are the moon colonies? Where are the personal robots and the zero gravity boots, huh? You call this the future?? Ha!

    Well, Star Trek has given us those futuristic concepts, and on the whole, has been pretty timeless about it. However, there are plenty of anachronisms within it that give away the era in which any particular series or book originated. So, for this art challenge, how about we celebrate the anachronistic and imagine how TOS would look if it was made in the 1990s? Or a Victorian era TNG? Or a Jurassic DS9?
    Just pick a time period and create its future Star Trek style, whether in-universe or real world. Clockwork Borg? Wooden starships? Period costume uniforms? A 1950s replicator recipe book cover? Or maybe you just want to draw a stegosaurus in a Starfleet uniform? As long as it’s anachronistic, anything goes!

    Deadline is December 31st. I realise that you may not have much time depending on your holiday commitments, so sketches and doodles will be just as welcome as a finished piece of art.

    I can see you...
    Here's my final submission. The textures suck at this scale but I was really running out of time. So present you with...
    Chantli Tehuantinpan (which roughly translates as Home Above Us)

    This is about as finished as my entry is going to get (I'm going to have to stop up that time sink under the stairs...)

    Picked up "Forbidden Planet" on Blu for 10.00, watched it, and tried to figure out how Trek would've looked if the series had been produced immediately following "Forbidden Planet"'s release, but with a budget closer in the neighborhood of "Space Patrol". By that I mean super cheap, little detail on the model, stories that have the ship based out of Earth or near by, ray guns, etc.

    I also wanted a flying saucer with rocket engines. When I was real little, watching Trek as a kid with poor reception and lots of t.v. snow, I thought this is what the Enterprise looked like based on the ship whooshing by in the credits.
