(HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (TOP 50 REVIEWER)   
This review is from: "Star Trek TNG" Sketchbook: The Movies (Paperback)
Length:: 0:26 Mins

The sketches contained in this book are from the two Star Trek Movies, Generations and First Contact. There are two cover versions and the one I have isn't the blue one.

John Eaves is the main artist who walks through the ship concepts, explaining the design inspiration and consideration. He and the other artists contributed more than hundred pieces of mechanical drawings. There are both approved drawings as well as discarded ones, such as the ship that looked like a chicken from top.

In addition to the line art blueprints of the ships, there are also concept art sketches for weapons, props, sets, storyboards, the characters and multiple photos of sets and models. The mechanical drawings of the ships are incredibly detailed, going down to where the different types of rooms are located. The sculpted models are equally detailed and are used in the movies themselves.

This book is suited for model collectors and concept artists.

The ships included are:

* U.S.S. Enterprise-B
* Enterprise-B Sets
* Lakul
* Stellar Cartography Platform
* Amargosa Observatory
* Enterprise-E
* Enterprise-E Sets
* Phoenix pod
* Borg Sphere and Cube
* Vulcan Lander
* Quantum Torpedo Launcher
* Other minor props and sets

There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great if your interested, 22 May 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: "Star Trek TNG" Sketchbook: The Movies (Paperback)
This book provides loads of sketches, photos and diagrams from the first two Next Generation Movies.
While not the most cohesive of books, its great to flip through to find out how some ships could have looked. Particularly some of the original idea for the Enterprise E. It also includes details of how they made certain shots such as the Saucer crashing from Generations.
Unfortunately because of the wide variety of material some thigns are skipped over that could have been included.
Overall its a great book, but possibly with not enough detail for the avid fan.
