So, I bought a new book the other day:
The book without the dust cover is cool, as we see a yellow line version of Eaves’s concept for the Borg cube from First Contact.
Anyway, I’ve been a fan of John Eaves’s work for years, I have his old sketch book from the movies Generations and First Contact. Eaves’s Star Trek career spans over 30 years, as he started out in Greg Jein’s model shop for Star Trek V, and he also drew concept work for the Klingon disruptor cannon and the Starfleet shuttlecraft, though the shuttle concept wasn’t used. He moved out of the model shop and into the concept art department for TNG and DS9, continuing to the TNG movies and Enterprise, and has done concept work for the first two JJTrek movies and Discovery. He not only designs ships, but props as well, as everything in a Sci-Fi movie usually has to be made and needs concept work to visualize designs.
Anyway, good book. I’ve only read the Discovery part, though I skimmed over some of the rest. I wanted to know why certain things were done they way they are for Discovery, and this book answers some of that.
So, that’s what I have for now. Good book, especially if concept art fascinates you as it does me.
