About the artist; Rick Sternbach:
In the late 1970s, accomplished space and science-fiction illustrator Rick Sternbach was selected to design graphic & set elements for the Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

Following the success of the Star Trek films, Sternbach was hired to further update the Trek universe for the second Star Trek television series, Star Trek: The Next Generation. Using the traditional tools of an artist: pencil, marker and pen, as well as computer aided design tools, he created new spacecraft, Tricorders, Phasers, and hundreds of other props and set pieces for the series. He continued in the mid-1990s designing new props for Deep Space Nine and Voyager. Mr. Sternbach also contributed graphic designs for Star Trek: Nemesis, including the new Romulan bird of prey and Senate chamber floor.

Signed lithographs of Mr. Sternbach's Star Trek work go for over $1000.00 on secondary markets. This is a one of a kind drawing!

The collection of Star Trek original art offered on WilliamShatner.com was conceived and hand-drawn by Sternbach during the production of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Many of these pieces have Mr. Sternbach's scene, episode and other notations describing the piece; some are also signed and dated at the lower right corner.
