Have you ever wondered what _Star Trek_ would look like if it had been shot in the cinerama wide screen format that we know and love today? I have. And so had artist Nick Acosta, and he did something about it. Using scenes from the show and waiting for the camera to pan and _then_ stitching the resulting images together he came up with these _absolutely incredible_ images. Seriously. They’re amazing. Hit the jump for some of my favourites and more.
First up, take a look again at that top image from _Arena_. Look at the drama! And then look at everything going on in this shot from _Amok Time_.
And everyone’s favourite Orion Slave Girl from _The Cage_!
Here’s a great shot from one of my personal favourite episodes, _The Balance of Terror_.
Look how amazing this scene of Kirk and con man Harry Mudd! Just look at it!
And because everyone loves this episode here’s Kirk in a pile of Tribbles from _The Trouble with Tribbles_.
There are plenty more where these came from. Acosta has stitched together images from lots of great episodes and you can [see them all on his website](http://cargocollective.com/nickacosta/Star-Trek-in-Cinerama). I highly recommend you go take a look.
