Back when I posted the magazine version of Marvel Comics' Star Trek - The Motion Picture adaptation, one of you pointed out that the composition of Bob Larkin's cover painting was a homage to the original Star Trek series art by James Bama that was used in early promotional material and on the cover of Bantam Books' first collection of James Blish short story script adaptations. And damn - I don't know how I missed that before!
I haven't posted quite as much about Star Trek on this blog as I have other shows, because a.) although its actual popularity was at its highest in the 70's through extensive television syndication and it was tremendously influential on shaping my love of the genre, it was technically a 60's show, and b.) there's tons of Trek on the web already. But, as today is the 45th anniversary of the series, here are links to some of my previous Trek-related posts. Enjoy!
