Random Trek Tuesday #12 – Singularity (ENT)

Do you think a cup holder’s too much?

The episode for this week’s random trek tuesday is the ninth episode of Enterprise season two –  Singularity.  Whilst I was really happy to see an Enterprise episode come up I was a little wary of a season two episode and I remembered a bunch of people being annoying in the story.

It was so unbelievably nice to sit and watch a standalone episode of Enterprise and just enjoy the little tangents each of the characters go down.

It’s a surprisingly strong solid episode that smacks of TOS and it was just a pleasure to watch.

I went to great lengths to get the chair right. 

This is part of the Random Trek Tuesday. I have gathered together EVERY episode of Star Trek, every season, every series and every film except for Star Trek Picard and put them into a big spreadsheet. Every week I let the randomiser pick one episode out which I’ll watch and then draw a scene from. You’ll find the original over on the Lee Draws Stuff shop immediately after publishing here on a Tuesday night (unless already sold).

124 of 366 – 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968): Dr David Bowman

Open the pod bay doors HAL.

Yeah I’ve definitely fallen behind on the 366 again though to be fair this was inked about a week ago and I only just got around to painting it today.

Random Trek Tuesday #11 – This Side of Paradise (TOS)

That one looks like a dragon. You see the tail and the dorsal spines?

The obvious scene to draw in this episode was of course Spock hanging upside down with a very angry James T Kirk frowning. But I did that a couple of years ago so I felt I wanted to do something different.

It’s a great episode that really intensifies the mystique around Spock as we discover that it’s his turn to have an old flame (well as close as Spock might come) show up.

Side note this episode has one of the only shots of the empty bridge which was a shot reused in the TNG episode Relics for the full bridge shot on the holodeck.

123 of 366 – Kill Bill: Volume 1 (2003): The Bride (code name Black Mamba)

 Those of you lucky enough to still have your lives, take them with you! But leave the limbs you have lost. They belong to me now. 

I was really excited when this one came up in the list and I spent ages trying to get the yellow I wanted as a base. I’m a big fan of the Kill Bill films, there’s bits and pieces I could do without but I love the fusion of cowboys and samurai and Tarantino.

It works.

Also the soundtrack is, as always with QT exceptional.

122 of 366: Big Hero 6 (2014): Baymax

Hairy baby! Hairy baaaabyyyy.

Big Hero 6 was such a breath of fresh air when it came out, a solid comic book movie with some heart and adorable characters.

I didn’t watch the series though and maybe one of these days I’ll check it out.

121 of 366 – Robocop 2 (1990): Officer Anne Lewis

That son of a bitch is getting away with it. We can’t even touch him.

I love Lewis, she’s a true arse kicker and a great character that really balances out the Robocop films.

She’s this non-nonsense bubblegum chewing officer who is probably Robocop’s truest friend.

I love how she’s leading the charge against Cain at the end of the film and has no doubts when distracting him as Robo gets ready to ambush him.

Just solid great character.

Random Trek Tuesday #10 – Lessons (TNG)

 Now perhaps you can tell me what was so important that it required depriving the Captain of his cup of Earl Grey?

After drawing hundreds (mmm I suppose it would be easily over a thousand now) of Star Trek scribbles you would think that such a simple exchange would have little appeal or interest but I really enjoyed drawing this one.

There’s a more obvious scene later in the episode where Picard and Lt. Commander Nella Daren play a duet in one of the turboshafts but I’ve only semi recently (in the last year) drawn that scene and I just really enjoyed the opening of this episode so I went with Picard and Daren’s meeting.

I never noticed until this episode that the pants with the jacket uniform are a bit reminiscent of the monster maroon uniforms from the films.

It’s a solid episode that gives us a hint at why Picard doesn’t pursue romantic relationships whilst in command.

Big damn heroes, sir. Firefly: Safe

Yeah, but she’s our witch.
(cocks gun)
So cut her the hell down.

This one was a long time coming as I worked out how I’d like to structure it and trying to work out how to have Jayne dangling from the sky.

LOL I couldn’t do it but I’m still very pleased with our big damn heroes.

The original for this is available on the Lee Draws Shop.

120 of 366 – Robocop (1987): ED-209

Please put down your weapon. You have 20 seconds to comply.

I love the ED-209.

From its Phil Tippett stop motion animation to its ridiculously aggressive design, the ED-209 has always been a favourite of mine and I don’t draw it enough for my liking.

Robocop is still one of my favourite films of all time, a perfect blend of cynical satire and the absolutely coolest designs.

119 of 366 – Moon (2009): Sam Bell

 I wanna go home.

We saw Moon at a film festival and it completely stole the whole festival. It is an exceptional film featuring an exceptional performance by Sam Rockwell.

The aesthetics of the film are beautiful and invoke 2001 A Space Odyssey as does GERTY the HAL stand-in but at no point does the film feel like a copy (excuse the irony).

There’s not a month that goes by that I don’t think about Moon.

(I sneaked a GERTY in because I can).
