Nice butt shot of Troi.

Goraxus

Anybody know if they cancelled the Movie Omnibus? Amazon cancelled my preorder and I can’t find any information as to why

we are trying to get clarificaiton on movie omnibus, but it does appear like to at least be delayed. We will have more in next update

Steamblade

That art is….. not up to spec.

When was there a curved overhead window in Picard’s Ready Room?

Bryan

Uhh is there a story reason why Worf doesn’t have his sash?

Ant

I like how in the estlabishing shot of him in his ready room theres a little model of the Kelvin- or at least a ship that looks like it could be the Kelvin.

Captain Bill

People, must I remind you again that it’s the story that really matters and that the art is there to help it along, and also different people have different styles of drawing. NO TWO PEOPLE ARE GOING TO DRAW THE SAME CHARACTERS ALIKE. I’m getting tired of all the art bashing on this comic. So what if the art doesn’t live up to your oh so high and mighty standards! Live with it and enjoy the story! Accept that everyone is different and that we all draw different too.
The model in Picard’s ready room is of his first ship, the Stargazer. It’s been there since the very first TNG episode.

Eli

yeah, not impressed by the art. The Enterprise is a mess, the features of Picard’s ready room are all out of place and there’s even a reverse angle of his quarters in that one panel.

You’d think the artist could do 5 minutes of research on the sets before he started drawing…

Roger

Holy crapballs, Batman! I got vertigo looking at that first shot of the Ready Room. Was the “artist” taking his inspiration from M.C. Escher?

Kirk's girdle

Re: 4

Yeah, from that angle we should see Picard’s replicator and the door to the bridge.

Captain Rickover

# 7

This model is not the Stargazer. Stargazer had 4 warp drives, this one has just one. Stargazer had no red nacelle-caps, this one has.

It has to be the Kelvin. I think it’s a little tribute to the new movie.

Captain Bill

Captain Rickover the model IS the Stargazer. As has been stated before the artist probably didn’t do any research before he started drawing. So he drew a generic looking ship that is meant to be the Stargazer. Anyone who has watch TNG should know that the ship in Picard’s ready room is the Stargazer, the ship Picard served on before the Enterprise. He had very fond memories of that ship and that is why there is a model in his ready room. I hope this clears up any confusion people might have.
