This is a blog about Star Trek. In case you can't tell.
(My personal blog is here in case anyone wants to know.)

The cast showing off what books they were reading at the time. (If you look closely, it looks like some might have chosen their books for character research!)

This is AWESOME. Also, the sight of Robert Beltran smiling and holding a Carlos Fuentes book is about to send this former librarian right into orbit, thankyouverymuch.

Books and Trek. Now we just need a nice pot of tea!

This was a READ - for America’s Libraries poster! (Do they still do those? The 90s, man.) It would surprise me to learn that they were all actually reading those books, since they seem so especially chosen for their characters.

Reblogging again for the commentaries and info! Now that you mention it, I think you’re probably right about the books, the selection does seem a little too appropriate! (Still a great picture, though, regardless!)

Variations of what would be the new Andorian battle ship. The 4 versions covered a broad gammut of styles, and in the end the upper left idea was chosen and nicknamed the Andorlactica because of it’s Battlestar Galactica (1970′s) front end resemblance.

Rehearsing In Theory.

Here was a fun ship from the Suliban race, and it was seen in Enterprise episode #26 entitled “Shock Wave”.  The Suliban were a strange race and they were to be so prominent in the new series, but by season 2 they had pretty much faded away.  Amongst all the ships that had to be drawn for the series, the Suliban were the hardest to get concepts signed off…it still brings back a lot of dizziness just thinking about all the billions of drawings it took to get just a handful of ships through those narrow approval doors.  This one was one of the last ships to be drawn and the heat and tension had let up, so it went through on a single pass!!!!  WOOO HOOO!  And it was one of my favs as far as their ships went.

In addition, there had to be a hidden base and, looking at Monument Valley in Northern Arizona for inspiration, the base became a high offensive location atop a spire of rock overlooking the vast landscape.  Eden VFX work shined brightly on this episode, and as always the work Rob and the gang put out was beyond awesome.
