So, have you ever heard of the television series Star Trek: Phase II? Me neither! Then again I am by no means a trekker or anything even close. I like the original series and I dig all of the movies, that’s about it. However, I felt that this little insight into the Star Trek series that never made it out of the concept phase is interesting. This is usually the behind the scenes stuff that we are normally not allowed to see.
Io9 released this concept art created by artist Mike Minor for the unrealized series. The series was eventually turned into the Star Trek motion picture and some of the scripts were used in The Next Generation.
It is fun to see the direction they were going with this show with concept art showing designs for the bridge, captain's quarters, engineering room, rec room, and what appears to be the cargo hold.
