Ken Christie was an artist based out of New York City in the late 1980s and early 1990s. He painted a number of novel covers for St. Martin's and other publishing companies during this period of time.

His only Star Trek work was the cover for the trade paperback release of The Mirror Universe Saga from DC Comics, published in early 1991.

As of the late 1980s, Christie was quite sick and reportedly died of AIDS. [1]
