I really wanted to do a Star Trek version of Nighthawks by Edward Hopper. I've seen so many other parodies done, including several Star Wars versions. However, it was important to me that it wasn't just the cast of Star Trek thrown into the setting of the painting. I wanted to give it a somewhat "real" feel and thought about what it was like for the crew when the ship went in for the refit at the end of their 5 year mission. I wanted to work in some of that depressing feeling the original had.

It's not so much that I don't like Star Trek, I like it well enough, but I don't like a lot of Star Trek related fan art for some reason. It never quite reaches me like it should. But this thing you've made here just seems like such a perfect, charming little piece and shouldn't be so easily forgotten.

Very cool.  :)

I could be mistaken, but isn't that orange door used on eagles on Space: 1999 ... ?
