Today (Nov 26) marks the 36th anniversary of the release of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. That's me in Starfleet Command with executive producer Ralph Winter, who took a chance on an inexperienced kid from Hawaii, and in the process, changed my life. In front of me is a keyboard, which was the first graphic I designed for Star Trek at Paramount. I'd already designed a lot of stuff while working from home in Honolulu, but that was the first thing I actually designed at the studio, at the request of production designer Jack Collis and associate producer Kirk Thatcher. Thanks again, Ralph! Photo by Bruce Birmelin.
