Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic!
Today’s picture isn’t large, unfortunately, but it is pretty epic. If my origins are correct, this comes from the photo collection of one original crew members and it’s a shot I’ve not seen before.
That doesn’t mean this is a brand new pic. I grew up a Star Wars kid and while I love TOS, TNG and a good handful of the movies I wouldn’t count myself as any sort of expert, so it’s possible this has been seen by the hardest of the hardcore.
What I love about this particular image, and the reason it’s my first Trek photo even though I’ve collected at least two dozen at this point, is it is a hero shot of the original Enterprise model. Look at how massive that thing is! You can also get a great sense of how they pulled off those model shots back in the day.
So, here’s the first of many Trek images to come. The original Enterprise in all its glory! Enjoy!
If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here.
Since today is Trek, let’s head back to Star Wars territory with the next Empire Strikes Back photo for tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes pic!
