There’s no one measure of Majel Barrett’s contribution to Star Trek, whether Nurse Chapel, Lwaxana Troi or the omnipresence of computer voices in later seasons, but Star Trek: Discovery may pay more tribute to Barrett than its “Number One” lead. According to reports, Barrett’s digitized voice may also feature into the new series as well.
With the recent release of the third installment in the new Star Trek film series, Star Trek Beyond, the future of the past continues to zoom into the future of the present. Even as that future continues to change around us. And just as our present vision of the future changes, so too the exploits and adventures of the crew of the USS Enterprise have changed. And that makes sense, especially when you consider the fact that this new iteration of the franchise has revolved almost entirely around time travel and alternate timelines.
But if all this time talk has got your head spinning, there's a lot of great fan art by talented artists to enjoy, and we've compiled a small collection of some of the best. Gallery Viewer… Engage!
The poster for Star Trek: The Motion Picture is so dramatic.

That image promises excitement beyond imagination. Adventure! Passion! Every color under the rainbow!
