A silly parody based on the Klingon Bird-of-Prey:
Artwork detail (half actual size):
I’ve made a triangular pixel effect for the KBOP image itself, referencing Klingon graphics’ fondness for triangles.
And a word about the Klingon: the letters on my shirt are ‘real’ Klingon letters, taken from screencaps, but they do not spell anything, either in Klingon or English. They are simply arranged like text, meant to look pretty. Which is exactly how the ST art department did it anyway.
A frame showing details of the head, shoulders and mouth of the Klingon Bird of Prey. This frame has been enhanced to show color.
Close-up of the side of the neck and the back of the ‘head’ from the same scene as before. Note the fine detail work and painting.
Underside, under-wing and neck area view of the Bird of Prey, from ST:III. HD screen capture.
An underside view of the Klingon Bird of Prey, looming over the merchantman, from Star Trek III. This image has been lightened to show detail.
A side view of the Bird of Prey as she arcs above the merchantman, near the beginning of Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. Note the ‘missing’ ‘feather’ panel on the wing closest to the camera, near the wing root, and the apparent greenness of the ‘roll bar’ on the bridge.
A frame from ST:VI, if I recall correctly. HD screen capture. This shows at least a rough idea of the KBoP’s underbelly coloration.
Found via Google Image Search. A ‘beauty shot’ of the ‘hero’ (as opposed to ‘pyro’) filming miniature of the Klingon Bird-of-Prey from Star Trek III and later films. Note the clearly red ‘roll bar’ on the bridge, and the strong variations in panel colors. On screen, these almost disappear. Source unknown; appears to be a retouched scan of a printed image, possibly from a book.
