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. I highly recommend you go take a look.
