Klingon Bird-of-Prey Shirt

A silly parody based on the Klingon Bird-of-Prey:

The Dirty Birdy Klingon Bar & Grill

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.

Klingon Bird of Prey Head & Mouth Detail

A frame showing details of the head, shoulders and mouth of the Klingon Bird of Prey. This frame has been enhanced to show color.

KBoP Side View

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.
