AU Switcheroo Series: Captain Hoshi Sato, LCDR Trip Tucker, Dr. Malcolm Reed

#2 in AU Switcheroo Series


Captain Hoshi Sato stops by to check in with her Armory Officer and Chief Medical Officer.

In this Alternate Universe, Hoshi Sato is the captain of the NX-01. She wears yellow command stripes and her long hair in a bun. The uniform is almost identical to the "normal" universe, except I made it a two-piece. Trip Tucker is the one who's changed the least. Even though he's now the Armory Officer (instead of Malcolm), he's still wearing red stripes. Malcolm was the most challenging to draw because he was the one who changed the most in this AU. I gave him blue science stripes, a green lab coat, and the goatee he wore in the Twilight AU. Plus, he's a workaholic no matter which universe he's in.

I also borrowed the flag patch concept from Stargate Atlantis (since Earth is still in transition to a United Earth), so Hoshi wears the Rising Sun of Japan, Trip the Stars and Stripes and Malcolm, the Union Jack, on the right sleeve of their uniforms.

AU Switcheroo Series: Lieutenant T'Pol

#1 in AU Switcheroo Series


Here is a sketch of Lieutenant T'Pol, helmswoman of an alternate Enterprise NX-01. She is a character in my AU Switcheroo Series which is at the Delphic Expanse (see link). The series started as a writing challenge: write about an alternate NX-01 by switching the crew around so they're in a different ship position, but keep their personalities and/or relationships. In this AU, T'Pol is in Operations, so she's wearing yellow stripes and she also wears an IDIC medallion.

Why "Sarasvati"?

Why Sarasvati?

She is the Hindu patron goddess of the arts and music. I imagine her sitting among the stars, playing her sitar and sending inspiration to all artists, writer, musicians and other creatives. I thought it fitting to name this log after her.

Feel free to browse and enjoy the paintings, sketches and drawings here. Most are Star Trek Enterprise, though there are some from The Original Series, The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine. (No Voyager yet...working on it). If you are interested in joining the Sarasvati crew and displaying your own art here, drop me a comm at artistmum1@gmail.com

Thanks,
Captain A.
