Summary Edit

From the website
The second volume, by Ben Robinson and Marcus Riley, takes you behind the scenes to reveal the thinking – and the artwork – behind the design of dozens of STAR TREK starships, from the first doodles to the finished art sent to the modelmakers.
Volume One featured all seven Enterprises. Volume Two covers more than 30 ships including the USS Voyager, Delta Flyer, the Enterprise-J, the Phoenix, Klingon Bird-of-Prey, Romulan Warbird, Borg Sphere, V'Ger, and many more. The book is packed with original concept art, and includes work from legendary artists Syd Mead and Robert McCall.

Background information Edit

  • Noteworthy is the major overhaul the USS Voyager entry received for the book publication. The original magazine article in issue 8 of four pages was expanded to eighteen pages, with additional concept art from Rick Sternbach, Doug Drexler (with caption misidentification in the original publication corrected for the latter), and introducing concept art from Jim Martin, some of which already shared by author Robinson previously with his Twitter account followers. [1] [2]
  • The two V'ger chapters are entirely new, as no such source publication existed in, or was foreseen for, the collection at the time of the book's publication. Still, Robinson could draw upon material, previously written and illustrated for articles in a 2001 outing of his previous Fabbri Publishing (US) assignment, Star Trek: The Magazine Volume 2, Issue 8.
