Starbase 11 Menagerie Version

    Newer Older

    A matte painting of Starbase 11 as shown in the beginning of the two part wrap around TOS episode The Menagerie. Another Albert Whitlock painting. This Starbase was mentioned in two episodes, The Menagerie and Court Marial, though the details shown and the sky are quite different in both treatments. They were later harmonized to some extent in the CGI remasters.

    See the live action set that the actors stood in front of here (which was basically only the wall and sculpture):

      Very true. Lots of kids could do better today with their computers and some $20 software, but, back in the day, Albert and artist like him were the only way to create exotic vistas without breaking the budget. And he gave us all some seriously amazing stuff!

      That annoying Lt. Piper always annoyed me. She's there to receive the landing party, but what the hell does she think she'll see, staring off into the sky like that. The Enterprise is in space, you cow!
