For Inktober, friend-of-this-Tumblr Bruce McCorkindale did a series of 31 sketchcards devoted to Star Trek. He then put them up for sale on eBay to help out The Hero Initiative.

Go, bid. Help the comics writers and artists that created so many of the characters and worlds you enjoy lead longer, better lives.

“Among my people, we carry many such words as this from many lands, many worlds. Many are equally good and are as well respected, but wherever we have gone, no words have said this thing of importance in quite this way. Look at these three words written larger than the rest, with a special pride never written before, or since, tall words proudly saying, ‘We the People.’ That which you call Ee’d Plebnista, was not written for the chiefs of kings, or the warriors or the rich or the powerful, but for ALL the people! Down the centuries, you have slurred the meaning of the words, ‘We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty, to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution.’ These words and the words that follow, were not written only for the Yangs, but for the Kohms as well! They must apply to everyone, or they mean nothing!”

TOS to AOS

If you think about it, the new Star Trek movies are actually a pretty good representation of The Original Series. Hear me out;

First, you have Star Trek (2009) which represents your average TOS episode. They are loved by many, but very rarely chosen as the favorite. (TOS “The Omega Glory”, “I, Mudd”)

Then, you have Into Darkness which is the downright confusing episodes that left you wondering what the writers are on to come up with this shit. (TOS “Spock’s Brain”, “The Savage Curtain”)

Finally, you have Beyond which is the ‘golden episodes’. The ones that are treasured and beloved by everyone, and received acclaims and recognition worldwide. The episodes that define the essence of Star Trek, and the message it sends. (TOS “City On the Edge of Forever”, “Journey to Babel”, “Mirror, Mirror”)
