Can You Name All 235 Star Trek Characters In This New 8-bit Art Poster? April 6, 2011

by Staff , Filed under: Art,Contest,Merchandise , trackback

Artist John Martz, previously featured on TrekMovie, has created a cool new poster of his 8-bit Star Trek characters. The limited edition print goes on sale next week, but if you can name all 235 characters in it you can get a chance to win one. Details below.



Trexels – name all of them for a chance to win the poster

Last summer we featured the Star Trek art of cartoonist and artist John Maltz who had created the original Star Trek crew in 8-bit pixel art. Since then Maltz has been busy and has put together a poster called "Trexels" featuring 235 Star Trek characters in pixel art. The new poster measures 8.5 x 11 and is printed using an 8-colour archival printing process on 100% cotton rag museum-quality paper.

The Trexels poster is a limited edition of 300 and will debut at the MoCCA Festival in New York City, April 9th and 10th, 2011. Following the festival most of the prints will be available for sale at

But if you can name all 235 characters in the poster you can enter a contest to win a free one. A larger version of the poster and a "key" for entering the contest are at


1. Sean4000 - April 6, 2011

Awesome work!

2. Tomi_SI - April 6, 2011

i think chewbacca is the othe franchise! 7 row 15 character

3. Red Dead Ryan - April 6, 2011


That is actually Morn from “Deep Space Nine”.

4. "Check the Circuit!" - April 6, 2011

THAT is fantastic! Naming every character will be tough, be it helps that it’s laid out in chronological order….more or less.

5. vice1986 - April 6, 2011

I’m suprised at how many I can name….but theres a few that elude me

6. CaptBrando - April 6, 2011

They missed alot of characters, I’m not buying this poster!

7. I'm Dead Jim - April 6, 2011

That’s Morn from DS9.

8. Commodore Mike of the Terran Empire - April 6, 2011

I spotted Porthos and the Horta. Hmm. Who would win that battle.

9. Buzz Cagney - April 6, 2011

Funnily enough I can’t.

10. Commodore Mike of the Terran Empire - April 6, 2011

What about all of the Red Shirts that were killed on Tos.

11. gingerly - April 6, 2011

@8 Are you kidding??? The Horta eats rock!
That beagle would be mince-meat.

12. CaptBrando - April 6, 2011

where’s Rachel Garrett, John Harriman, or Jarish Enyo, sry bout his name spelling, but it seems if you go all out, you would have to have them all, an not Worf twice, sry it doesnt work for me.

13. acacia - April 6, 2011

hey! where’s spot? cant be last in row five. She was a tabby cat!

14. Reign1701A - April 6, 2011

Do we need ranks too since characters are listed multiple times in different uniforms?

15. Battle-scarred Sciatica - April 6, 2011

I love it and I want one.

Looks like it comes straight from Diesel Sweeties.

ooooh the Mage……

16. CmdrR - April 6, 2011

Is the one between old McCoy’s Far Point appearance and Lwoxana (never could spell her name) what’s left of Remick after he got phasered?

17. Matthew - April 6, 2011

Make your own artwork then – buddy.

18. Dr. Cheis - April 6, 2011

I’m quite surprised how many I can recognize, although there are quite a few that look to me like “some guy in a uniform”. That’s not the artist’s fault; I’m sure I wouldn’t recognize photos of most of those either.

I wish it had characters from the ’09 movie. I think the it needs Nero, Pike, and Spock Prime. And maybe the lil’ dude from Scotty’s engineering team.

19. Tomi_SI - April 6, 2011

Uffff ur right! how could i forget morn. But he shur looks like the hairy guy you know from star wars , i talk about Georg Lucas :D hehehe

20. Minnesota Bruin - April 6, 2011

@13 acacia

On Spot is a tabby…

I think this is great. I wish the pricing information was available.

21. Chapel's badge - April 6, 2011

Amazing how well they are identifiable. Great work, I’d like to have this on my wall!

22. Orb of the Emissary - April 6, 2011

I want one NOW!! :-)

23. Jeyl - April 6, 2011

Where’s the Tholian?

24. Kirk's Flying Wig - April 6, 2011

Since there aren’t actually 235 individual characters on the poster, I’m sure people will find this contest quite easy.

25. "Check the Circuit!" - April 6, 2011

Who’s that between the Talosian and the Horta. Kirk in “What Little Girls are Made of” outfit?

26. Paul - April 6, 2011

@25: definitely. He’s got a penis rock.

27. Majicou - April 6, 2011

I managed to tentatively identify everyone except 179 (between the Female Changeling and Zek) and 231 (between the Na’kuhl guy and Silik.) 179 looks kinda like a 29th-century Starfleet uniform, but not quite. Wouldn’t make sense placed there anyway. 231, no real idea.

28. Jvzilen - April 6, 2011

Worf is on there twice

29. Jvzilen - April 6, 2011

nvm… a lot of ppl are on twice…

30. Seattle Trek Fan - April 6, 2011

I kinda wish the image uploaded was a little bigger so we could see them a little better.

31. Keachick - April 6, 2011

Wasn’t Data’s cat ginger?

32. Vultan - April 6, 2011


Her name was Spot, not Ginger.


33. naHQun - April 6, 2011

Why are the tribbles next to the Klingons!?

34. Dr. Cheis - April 6, 2011

Scotty did it.

35. Let Them Eat Plomeek Soup - April 6, 2011




Because the artist hates Klingons.

Chekov is shorter than the women. Heh heh…

36. Let Them Eat Plomeek Soup - April 6, 2011

About Spot:

19th figure, 3rd row. Could that be her/him?

37. departmentQ - April 6, 2011

The original “Number One” is missing…

38. NoRez - April 6, 2011

Where’s Guinan?????

39. Red Dead Ryan - April 6, 2011


Guinan is the eight person in on the fifth line. Right beside the “Encounter At Farpoint”/”All Good Things…” Q. She’s wearing light blue.

40. DennisR - April 6, 2011

@ 36 I think that’s Kruge’s pet targ from STIII.

41. NoRez - April 6, 2011

39 – Lol, thanks. Guess I was so psyched to see Q I totally missed her right next to him.

Now I’m looking for Dailon Quaice.

42. Majicou - April 6, 2011

@40: I had the thing between David and Kruge as a Ceti eel.

43. Bill - April 6, 2011

@27 179 is Dr. Mora and 231 might be a generic Suliban hard to say.

44. Reign1701A - April 6, 2011

The only one I’m not sure of is the Admiral next to Lursa and B’etor. Already submitted my entry though.

45. Reign1701A - April 6, 2011

That and the Klingon that’s after Gowron and Martok. Hmm…

46. 8472 - April 7, 2011

Got pretty much all of them except the non-main-character Enterprise ones since I’ve only seen season one of that.

47. DJT - April 7, 2011

I love it. But it’s only 8×11?

Say wha?

48. Double Shot Cpt. Iano - April 7, 2011

@16, thank you. That was bugging me. I need to start getting the box sets. I haven’t seen that scene without it being cut to avoid the gory bits in Sooooo long. Whenever it’s shown in UK/IE, it’s censored. Really annoying.

49. Bulka - April 7, 2011

what? no Damar?!

50. Matt H. - April 7, 2011

okay, who is # 184? 3rd from bottom, 5 from the end. Red face man?

51. Zip - April 7, 2011

What about the Enterprise, To me, the She was always a main character

52. Zip - April 7, 2011

ohps, the She should read She, I guess “the ship” would work too.

53. Joseph Chapes - April 7, 2011

#50 I believe it is a Dosi ambassador from the second season of DS9. “Rules of Acquisition,” I believe.

54. GraniteTrek - April 7, 2011

I GUESS Porthos is a character! :) Worf’s on there a couple of times..

55. Daoud - April 7, 2011

MARTZ, not MALTZ. :)

I bet the artist gets that all the time with Trekfen. :)

56. trekker 5 - April 7, 2011

#33 & #34,LOL!! oh my god! i can’t do it! i mean everything from TOS i can,but the others! noway! No poster 4 me!

57. CmdrR - April 7, 2011

55 — Good lord, you’re right.

“matlh! jol yIchu’!”

bwahahaha! Sorry, but that’s good.

58. CmdrR - April 7, 2011

(a little bigger)

59. Dovile - April 7, 2011

There’s definitely a line missing there at the bottom with the characters from the new movie…

look at character #128 LOL!

If this came with a grid, it’d be an awesome cross-stitch pattern.

60. Red Dead Ryan - April 7, 2011


That is probably Admiral Pressman from “Pegasus”.

61. Commodore Mike of the Terran Empire - April 7, 2011

There is one character missing. The Enterprise. Most inportant one of all.

62. gingerly - April 7, 2011

Nice poster, but I think it would’ve been even cooler with no repeats.

63. Victor Hugo - April 7, 2011

If there were no repeats you folks would complain anyway.

“what about the uniform changes, this is a disaster, mimimimi, reboot, mimimimi, mimimi”

64. Bryce - April 7, 2011

Who do you guys think #12 is? Between M’Benga and Arex? Maybe Decker?

How about 5th from the left – second to last line – between Naomi Wildman and the Vidiian? I’m thinking maybe Ayala…but it’s unclear….

65. wowseruk - April 7, 2011

This is so much fun and I’m only half way through! I knew this would eventually happen… the longer I sat on my arse and waited. :)

66. Reign1701A - April 7, 2011

@60 that was my first thought, but Pressman didn’t have a mustache.

67. Dr. Cheis - April 7, 2011

@64 I think that’s the other Vulcan from Voyager. I forget his name. He was in a small number of episodes.

68. Joseph Chapes - April 7, 2011

#67 Vorik, I believe. For a while I thought it was the human half of Torres from “Faces,” but I think you’re right.

69. Bill - April 7, 2011

Is number 10 your standard disposable red shirt?

70. Keachick - April 7, 2011

#61 There is surely another poster to be made here, showing all the different starships, upgrades etc, with the best looking Starship Enterprise looking bigger and more beautiful, put in the middle of the poster.

Leading to much enthusiasm, discussion and chagrin because of the choice of Enterprise put in the “All Time Best” slot…

71. Adam - April 7, 2011

This was WAY too fun to figure out. It’s at times like this I realize what a NERD I am!!! :-)

@42 – I think @40 is right — the animal between David Marcus and Kruge is Kruge’s targ, not a ceti eel. The ceti eel doesn’t have any legs.

@43 – I thought character #179 was Li Nalas from “The Homecoming,” “The Circle” and “The Siege,” but now that you say so, I think you’re probably right that it’s Dr. Mora. However, I’m nearly certain that character #231 isn’t a generic Suliban, but rather a Sphere Builder.

@45 – I was also confused about that Klingon with Gowron and Martok. I eventually decided it was Duras. It doesn’t make sense that he would be with the DS9 characters, but it does make sense that they would keep him with Gowron (who I also would have put with the TNG guest stars if I had organized it). In any case, he’s the only bearded, long-haired Klingon I could think of who was a prominent enough character to appear on the poster. The only other prominent DS9 Klingons were teenage Alexander (but he didn’t have a beard) or Kor (who had gray hair). I suppose it could be Worf with his hair down, but he usually kept it up when he wore Klingon armor. That’s a tough one.

@60 and @66 – I think the mysterious admiral is Admiral Nakamura from “The Measure of a Man” and “All Good Things…”. He’s short, gray-haired and has a mustashe, and since he appears twice he’s technically a recurring character.

@64 – I think the blond yellow shirt between M’Benga and Arex is Lt. Kevin Riley, the Irish navigator from “The Naked Time” and “The Conscience of a King.” He played quite a large role in both episodes, more than the other navigators du jour in the first season.

@69 – The 10th character could be a generic Redshirt, but I think since he’s blond I would go with Transporter Chief Kyle.

I think I’ve got them all, but I’m not too sure about some of them (marked with a question mark). I did it from memory, without looking anything up, so I couldn’t remember every name and my spelling is approximate. My list is here:

72. Bill - April 7, 2011

@45 and @71 that klingon could be Worf’s brother Kurn

@71 Was looking over your list and I think 111 is Nurse Alyssa Ogawa, 140 and 141 are incorrect (though what you put for 141 is 140), 198 Kim plays Buster Kincaid, 199 Doctor Chaotica, 200 is Satan’s Robot, 205 I don’t think is Lewis Zimmerman, my guess is Captain Braxton, I think 235 is Tarah

73. Lennier - April 8, 2011

Who are 115, 128, 129, 133 and 185?

74. Dr. Cheis - April 8, 2011

@71 You’ve got a pretty good list. I don’t think 129 is Norah Satie though. It doesn’t look quite right, and her costume doesn’t match the one on memory-alpha. I agree with most of #72 (Bill)’s corrections, but I’m not too sure about 235 being Tarah. Since she’s at the end of the list, I think she’s Talla, who was in the very last episode. I think 205 may be Zimmerman after all. Overlay him on the Doctor and it’s pretty much a perfect match. Ru’afo is 140, not 141. 141 is Shinzon’s viceroy… I forget his name.

I’m gonna flip out if we’re supposed to be more specific than “Breen” for 176 LOL.

With 178, “Female Changeling” is probablly a bit more specific than “Founder”. I think that’s how she was referred to in general, though her lack of a name makes it a bit complicated.

I’m still stumped on 179.

I’m pretty sure 225 is indeed Degra. 227’s outfit makes him the “lead reptilian” though his name escapes me. I think 226 is the arboreal that Degra usually talked with. (Degra is the “primate” by the way. The furry ones were arboreals.) I’m guessing 228 and 229 are the council leaders of the insectoid and aquatic races then, since it wouldn’t make sense to have some council leaders and some not. Ok, I gave in and looked it up, lol
225: Degra
226: Jannar
227: Dolim
228: name was never given; insectoid council leader should suffice
229: Kiaphet Amman’sor

I would also guess that 230 is specifically Vosk (had to look up his name), the leader of that group of aliens. I’m not sure if any of the other named ones were seen with the armbands.

And Hayes came to mind for 233 so I don’t think it’s generic.

Still, that’s really good for not looking any of them up!

75. Bill - April 8, 2011


115 – Professor Moriarty Hologram
128 – 50% of Remmick
129 – Tough one, my best guess is Dr. Leah Brahms
133 – Boothby
185 – Karemma Species

@74 I agree that 230 is Vosk the other choice is Ghrath, but the clothing on the 8-bit matches Vosk more. I have 179 as Dr. Mora. If 235 was Talla she would have to be shorter like Molly or the younger Jake are depicted. Also, the order does not coincide with order of appearance within the various series. My money is still on Tarah.

76. Dr. Cheis - April 8, 2011

Yeah, Leah Brahms! That looks like a pretty good match.

77. foravalon - April 9, 2011

You guys, it’s a contest right? Why are you dropping all the answers here instead of just entering ?

78. Christopher Roberts - April 9, 2011

128 – Seems to be Wesley Crusher (with a quiff) again, but in uniform this time.

79. Chris - April 10, 2011

Fake Trekkie like me: Kirk, Spock, Uhuruhhhhh that’s all I got

Legit trekkie- they’re missing so many and look at all those continuity errors! Kirk never wore the madalonian badge with the shekqurian D outfit L class!

80. Dr. Cheis - April 10, 2011

And don’t even get me started on Saavik! She’s wearing a white collar from Star Trek III but she’s grouped with the characters from Star Trek II and her collar should be orange! THIS IS A DISASTER!

81. Polly - April 10, 2011

haha i love this! wish it was bigger though, its hard to tell on some of them…and if thats supposed to be data’s cat, it should be orangish-colored.

82. The TREKMAN!!!! - April 12, 2011

Who just won a copy of this by naming all 235 Star Trek characters in pixelated form? I JUST WON A COPY OF THIS BY NAMING ALL 235 STAR TREK CHARACTERS IN PIXELATED FORM!!!! The TREKMAN still knows his TREK!!! YEAH!!!

83. Dr. Cheis - April 13, 2011

@82. Well done!
