    Oh, this is going to be good! I love that Dukat is trying catch Sisko's baseball.

    - He is if he stretch-morphs ;)

    You know, you are right. I adjusted their relative height. Thanks for the heads-up!

    Thank you, guys! You are too kind.

    Some progress …

    Just noticed the tiny Runabout model!

    Nice work, so far. :)

    Glad to hear Shepherd is a nice guy. Thanks for that anecdote!

    Thank you! And as @Finn points out …

    Exactly. It's my small homage to “One Little Ship”. I hope to include some more nods to my favorite episodes in the finished thing. If others have ideas for small things to include I'd be happy to incorporate them. :)

    Aaaaand another update. Didn't finish as much as I hoped I would over the holidays, but I think I'll be able to finish this until the end of the month.

    Thank you, @Santaman! :)

    Yeah, she's trying to gauge her pagh. I don't think she's being very successful, though. :lol:

    I know I said I was finished with this, but I had so much fun animating, I went ahead and spent most of the day animating the whole thing. Pretty happy with the result. What do you think?

    EDIT: And here's the GIF in its original size. Above you see the 2x version.

    Nice work! I especially like what you've done with Riker. Is that Data's cat next to Morn?

    Aww... Tribbles! And is that Ezri (in the back with Bashir) in her waitress outfit from "Badda Bing, Badda Bang"? This is fantastic!

    Thank you! Nah, that's Chester, the cat O'Brien took care of in “Honor Among Thieves”. It's all pure Deep Space Nine references in this image. :luvlove:

    Thanks @Cyfa! Yes, that's Ezri in her waitress outfit. I think she looked gorgeous in it and the dress makes it easier to distinguish her. Plus, she better matches Julian in his not-James-Bond suit. ;)

    I forgot about that cat, DS9 has been the hardest Star Trek for me to rewatch because of it's slightly less optimistic take on Star Trek. It's less ingrained in my brain than the other shows. I'll probbly rewatch Discovery even less.

    FYI: The way Bashir moves combined with the position of Ezri's left hand is quite suggestive or perhaps that's just my dirty mind. :shifty:

    Don't change it. It's hilarious! :lol:

    I've only seen a couple episodes of DS9, so I don't get most of the references, but the artwork is awesome!

    Hell, I've seen more Voyager now than DS9, and I never really cared for Voyager before...

    Oh wow! I've always enjoyed these types of high detail pictures and I love the little references in this: Brunt and Weyoun together, the mirrored Kiras... and even the console blinks. :cool:

    Wasn't Chester a grey long hair cat? IIRC it looked nothing like an orange cat like Spot, as depicted in your art...

    Maybe he had a similar transporter accident to the one that changed the breed and sex of Data's cat?
