Exclusive: Star Trek Concept Art
A look behind the scenes on Vulcan

12 November 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  

submit to reddit

One of the films of the year, and certainly one of its most surprising blockbusters, Star Trek convinced a whole generation that this franchise isn't just for geeks anymore. And now, thanks to the good people at Titan Books and their new book, The Art Of Star Trek (out next Tuesday, folks), here's a tiny peek behind the scenes at the creation of Vulcan.

The text on the page, in case you can't quite make it out, reads: "The idea of Vulcan culture was if you went there it would all make sense, because the thought process is paramount to their culture,” [Production Designer] Scott Chambliss reflected. “It’s not that they don’t have aesthetics, it’s that their consummate logic has a beauty all its own. That is opposed to the pure emotion and physicality of the Romulans. Though both came from the same [racial] antecedents.”

The Art of Star Trek, by Mark Cotta Vaz, is out on November 17 and the Star Trek DVD and Blu-ray come out on Monday November 16.

Advertising masquerading as content is 100% correct. At least 'pretend' not to be trying to sell something to us. More

ADVERTS MASQUERADING AS CONTENT
L: Revstar I cannot believe quite how blatant an advert this is. If you are going to run stories like this, at least have the decency to label them as advertising features, as you do in your magazine. That way I can avoid them, just as in the magazine. oes Empire know that helen o hara is moonlighting for titan books, whoring out their crappy books for them on this site? Which is worse? that they allow it to go on, or that they can't even control their own sites integrity? More
