Bombay's last stand by thefirstfleet Bombay's last stand by thefirstfleet
"Our Deaths are not ours, they are yours: They will mean what you make of them."





I rendered this image for David Mack, the author of the Star Trek: Vanguard novel series. He helped me with the Tholian ships' look, which I amended with what was seen in TOS-R: The Tholian Web.
This image took me a day to build. I hope the result is worthy of the time it consumed...

Yeah, nice image mate. I've literally just reached this battle in the book!

I'm glad you like it!

I have to admit, I left the series after the second book. It's not the Trek I grew up with...

Really? I'm getting to the end of the book now and really love it! My mind is firmly enthused with the TOS era at the moment (I go through phases of various eras) and I have to say that the book sat with me perfectly. I think the main difference between the book and the 'feel' of the Classic series is the strength of the female roles. They are much stronger and more 'modern' than any of the girls in the series ever were. Changing times I guess...I'm gonna get started on Book II asap and I'll let you know if it's worth a read.

The lesbian Vulcan was the point when I said oooookkkayyyyy... No, sorry, this is not what Roddenberry wanted.

Yeah I have to say, that Vulcan bird was easily the most annoying and dislikeable character in the book. Not a big fan of all the lesbottery either but at least there weren't pages and pages of smut.

It's amazing that only FOUR of those tiny things can take down a full-sized Vulcan cruiser. It goes to show how ridiculously overpowered the Tholians are.

Yupp, you just can't underestimate the small guys.

Do you still have the version without the annoying TOS:R ships? Beautiful, absolutely gorgeous render!
