Kobayashi Maru

Hi all, and Happy Sunday!!!  Here is a fun little post for a windy day!!  Well, at least it’s horrible windy at my house, so I am on the computer for a few moments.  For J.J.’s Star trek, the story was going to visit the legendary story of young Kirk cheating the no-win scenario called the Kobayshi Maru.  For this project I was given the book and some drawings of the Kobayashi to use as reference to come up with a new starship based loosely on these drawings.  I came up with two roughs and then my end day came and I was done working on the movie before anything further happened.  Alex Jeager took over from here and best I can tell, he used the version from the book and cinamatized it for the playback sequence!!!  I so wish you could have seen what he did a little better and a for a little bit longer on screen!!  As always, getting to work on classic Trek lore in the  form  of an illustration makes for an awesome assignment, weather or not it gets used.  So with that, here are the pics from the book and the roughs to help determine the ship’s new movie look!

the opportunity arose to submit this old beauty for playback so it had yet another chance to be rejected!!! HAAA!
