Eye Candy on The Drex Files

Snurched from the LiveJournal of Dayton Ward

The regular updates on Doug Drexler’s blog continue to wow me. Among his latest posts are cool on-set photos from the set of Battlestar Galactica‘s combat information center, or CIC; and a high-definition CGI render of the classic Enterprise that he and his associates had prepared in the hope that it might be used in the new Star Trek film.

Alas, Doug’s vision of the Enterprise didn’t make it into the new feature film, but it makes a lovely wallpaper:

An “Inside Baseball” look at Vanguard station

Doug Drexler, an acclaimed and award-winning CGI artist who has lent his impressive talents to such series as Star Trek Enterprise and Battlestar Galactica, also has rendered the cover art for the first four Star Trek Vanguard novels.

In a recent post on his blog, Drex Files, Doug talks a little about working with designer Masao Okazaki’s original designs, and how they ended up inspiring part of the remastered version of the original-series episode “The Ultimate Computer.”

It’s fun reading, as is the rest of Doug’s blog. Give it a look!
