The cover for issue 4 of the My Little Pony Movie Prequel comic from IDW Publishing! done in tribute to the iconic art of  Bob Peak's fantastic painting for the Star Trek:The Motion Picture poster. 

This was done with acrylics/airbrush, and colored pencil. i think my favorite part of this is Celestia and Luna! 

Prints available through Big Cartel andypriceart.bigcartel.com (UPDATED: Prints are sold out, this is no longer available)

They're boldly going where no pony has gone before.

Space: the final frontier. These are the continuing voyages of the starship "Enterprise". Her ongoing mission: to explore strange, new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilization, to boldly go where nopony has gone before.

Yeah, changing it to fit MLP isn't doing much. But if the Trekkies are still around, this may mean good things for the Bronies, even if the rumors about Season 9 are true...

I'm not really a MLP fan, but I LOVE this! Has a real 80s vibe to it. Great work!

It's actually a reference to the movie posted for the first ever Star Trek movie.

DevArt-Sticker You-Are-Awesome FINAL-IMG-02 by FilmmakerJ  I would not so easily expect a crossover like this. Star Trek the Motion Picture is my favorite Star Trek film.

Twilight Sparkle Ooooooo Emoticon. "Long-range scans indicate something of immense size and infinite power that feeds off of itself"!
Emoticon - Spike Reaction "Is it V'ger"?
Emoticon - Twilight Sparkle Hmmm "No, worse...it's Trixie's ego"!

Coming from a fellow long-time Trekkie, I will say that is one absolutely incredible cover. I so want to buy the original. And I bet I'm not nearly alone in that desire. Love

I went for your cover option on my pre-order sight-unseen because I knew it would be awesome, and I was right.
