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.

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).

Remember if you dig my stuff and wouldn’t mind seeing semi-daily journal entries which include sneak peeks, behind the scenes and first looks then head over to Patreon and subscribe for as little as $1 (US) a month.
