If I had the spare cash – I’d pay good money for that Star Trek II poster.

Me too. It’s the best piece there by some margin.

I have that one and the Spock one it was in a calendar last year where all of the pieces were pull outs and could be framed.

I have the Star Trek II poster from that calendar too; I wish it was a little larger but it looks great and lets everyone at work know who the Trekker is! A few of the other pull outs were worth framing and hanging around the house.

Pretty exciting. I’ve a piece in the show. ‘Risk Is Our Business’. Got to meet Nichelle at SDCC for the opening back in 2016. (Oh, and I’ve very affordable prints of it available too if anyone’s interested! Haha! Forgot about that bit.)

Paramount surely needs to beam up Calvin Ma to the art department.
