Hi All! Now that the Trek Core TOS gallery is back on line — I was able to finish my most recent poster — And the Children Shall Lead.
It wasn’t the greatest of episodes; the producers basically wanted to recreate the atmosphere of the the much better Miri, but Melvin Belli? Really?? Creating the poster my first thought was how to portray the little brats darlings and a deceptively angelic approach seemed appropriate. Note, the backdrop is actually the Friendly Angel’s robe. Meanwhile, Kirk and Sulu are freaking out, Uhura is devastated and Spock just wants to meditate himself out of there!
By the way kids, unfortunately, I am having difficulty getting the images I usually use from TrekCore to make these posters! I am so dissapointed! About two weeks ago the message came up in the TOS gallery that the gallery was ‘currently offline. please check back soon’. Alas, it is STILL not coming up today, and I hope it will be reinstated soon. It’s been my source for my Trek Posters and Trek Comics alike, and although I have many images saved on my computer, I really want to finish my poster series!!! (only 20 left!!!) Here’s hoping the TOS gallery will be back soon, (the other galleries seem to be working, naturally!)
Hey TrekCore, please fix this!!
As I finished this, I realized I had subconsciously made a couple of pyramids; or more accurately, teepees. The three Kirks here form a triangle, and Earth Mother Miramanee forms a loving triangle around her beloved Kirok.
Of course the great triangular obelisk lurks in the background; that must have cost a pretty penny for a big prop that would only be used once!
I think Sabina Scharf was gorgeous as Miramanee, even if her skirt was inaccurately short!
