Why Every Awesome Fictional School Would Kill You

Name: Curie

Registry: S-394

Type: Shuttlecraft

Affiliation: Starfleet

Year: 2270

Background: Shuttlecraft assigned to Sol Sector, equipped with warp drive. Used by Kirk and Carol Marcus to visit the Enterprise while she was laid up at Utopia Planitia Shipyards. Later used by the newly promoted Admiral Kirk and Commander Scott to travel to Starbase 8 and visit the “skunkworks”. They witnessed the launch of the XP, a testbed starshipwith a new warp drive. The XP encountered an imbalance in the warp field they couldn’t stabilize and Kirk and Scotty beamed aboard the test crew to the Curie before the prototype exploded. 

Appeared in Star Trek #75, DC-V2


Represent the Federation in Starfleet Academy!

Another partnership with Quantum Mechanix, Inc., the Starfleet Academy Enlistment Campaign poster series was set in motion just after the 2009 Star Trek film debuted in theaters and inspired a whole new generation of fans to don their dress uniforms and descend into Geekdom with the rest of us. 

The four core tenants of Starfleet were represented by each illustration and meant to inspire recruits to sign up and serve the Federation.  While the series has not been produced, it was a rewarding experience to get to illustrate and design these WPA-style recruitment posters.
