Star Trek The Next Generation

Star Trek the Next Generation backglass as described in the post

Star Trek the Next Generation, 1993, Williams.

More branded machines! More marketing!

Since it’s an illustration, everyone looks super young and quite fit. From left to right we’ve got Geordi LaForge, Deanna Troi, Jonathan Riker, Data, Beverly Crusher, Jean Luc Picard, and Worf who’s about to fire his phaser at someone. Wow I forgot that phasers were the size of boxy dildos back then.

Behind our heroes we see the Enterprise-D, a Romulan Bird-of-Prey, a Klingon battle cruiser, and the silhouette of a Borg, probably Hugh.

See, I do know some pop culture!

Star Trek (Pro, Stern, TOS reboot)

Star Trek (Pro), Stern, 2013. Heavily branded from the newer Star Trek original series movies. It’s meant to look gritty and dark and I’m not a fan, but I’ll take it over some of the more boobalicious backglasses that come out over the years. Uhura on the left, Kirk in the middle, Spock on the right, and two people I can’t quite make out at the bottom, possibly the bad guy and McCoy.

(Every time we try to watch the movie something bad happens so I’ve stopped trying.)

Anyway, a typical Hollywood backglass which means it’s boring as shit.

Star Trek (Bally, TOS)

Star Trek, Bally, 1978.

Y’all there are so many Star Trek pinball machines.

In this one, Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Uhura, and probably Chekov (in the background) are dressed in blue jumpsuits that, if they really were tight enough to show off every muscle group, would probably be cutting off everyone’s circulation.

Kirk has multiple rib lines / muffin tops across his right side.

Spock looks furious.

They are all running around on a yellow landscape with a yellow sky, so considering the year they could be in LA’s smog.

A planet and the ship both loom in the sky to the upper right, which I think indicates everything is about to be torn up by gravity… which does align with the pinball playing experience.
