I will feed him – A TNG Illustration

I will feed him.

It is potentially one of my all-time favourite Data and Worf interactions from the episode Phantasms:

WORF: Commander. I will have to confiscate your sidearm.
DATA: Of course. (hands over the phaser) May I ask a personal favour?
WORF: Yes.
DATA: Will you take care of Spot for me?
WORF: Your animal?
DATA: I am afraid if I have another waking dream, I might injure him.
WORF: Of course. Spot, come here.
DATA: Unlike a canine, Spot does not respond to verbal commands. (hands him to Worf who holds him at arms length) Goodbye, Spot. He will need to be fed once a day. He prefers feline supplement number twenty five.
WORF: I understand.
DATA: And he will require water. And you must provide him with a sand box. And you must talk to him. Tell him he is a pretty cat, and a good cat.
WORF: I will feed him.
DATA: Perhaps that will be enough.
(Worf leaves, sneezing)

One of the requests from the Star Trek commission pieces was for Picard, Riker and Data to be jamming together on board the Enterprise D.  It’s a nice idea and I really enjoyed drawing them, except I really dislike drawing musical instruments as I am the least musically gifted person on the planet LOL.

Overall I think this comes off really pleasant a little like the show itself, I find TNG really comforting to watch.

The Star Trek Commission Piece request was for a Commander Riker illustration as long as he had the beard. So I wanted to put him somewhere really alien and exploring instead of fighting.  There’s a line in Star Trek Insurrection that resonates with me from Picard, “Can anyone remember when we used to be explorers?“.

Occasionally I feel that’s been lost as Star Trek has struggled to find its way 50 years on.  Whilst I understand that external conflict provides story lines and plot progression sometimes I think the wonder is lost in the battle with the next bigger foe.  Of course Star Trek Insurrection attempted this to critical complaints so what do I know.
