    Pretty sure McQuarrie's work was for the proposed movie Planet of the Titans and not Phase II. The Enterprise you see in TMP is pretty-much a refined version of what we would have seen in a Phase II series.

    - I've only had a quick look at the pictures, so far, but I share your desire for more V'Ger concept and design work.
    I recently came across a design by Mike Minor with a hexagonal cross section, and hexagons adorning the main body which was turned into a physical model - seen here (scroll about halfway down). There's a concept sketch at Forgotten Trek too, along with one or two other designs that didn't make it into the book.

    Looks like the cover from DC’s #1 from its second Trek run. Same artist?

    The Khan cover is by Matthew Dow Smith. DC second run was Jerome Moore.

    [EDIT: "The Orville" cover actually reads: "D. Cabeza, after J. Moore", so yes, a deliberate homage by David Cabeza.]

    Oops. I was talking about the cover for The Orville #1 on the left.

    Ah, of course. Signature actually reads: "D. Cabeza, after J. Moore", so yes, a deliberate homage by David Cabeza.

    Slick cover, I enjoy the homage to Moore’s Trek work.

    Arrived today
    Star Trek - Legacies "Purgatory's Key" (Book 3)
    Star Trek - Enterprise (Rise of the Federation) "Live by the Code"

    Really been enjoying the Trek novelverse material, I only recently got into them about 1 month and half maybe 2 months ago, I've read some amazing stories that have been very very well done. With these 2 new trek books that makes 22 for the Trek novels that I got so far in my collection, only read 6 so far though haha.

    Mine, too. I remember one day in July 2002 when I actually ran out of Trek books to read (only a few YA "Academy" books left on the pile), then I changed jobs and my four-hour daily commuting turned into a ten-minute walk. Reading time evaporated.

    The “Star Trek: Discovery” novel, “Die Standing” (Gallery Books, 2020) by John Jackson Miller, has arrived at last. Here it is with my Funko "Pop" figures of Michael Burnham and Saru.

    Also, the USS Enterprise travels to Andor in Issue #15 of “Star Trek: Year Five”, and introduces Renei, a member of another subspecies of Andorian, who has swept-back antennae with speckles at the base.
