STAR TREK: The Next Generation: Remembered One by Jerome-K-Moore STAR TREK: The Next Generation: Remembered One by Jerome-K-Moore
Comic Book Cover Art, DC Comics, STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION. Pencil, Ink, Brush, Pen, Opaque gouache, China marker, and a cheap airbrush. lol

One of the all-time favorite Trek guest-stars, Suzie Plakson played the ill-fated K'Ehleyr, the half-Klingon, half-human mate of Lt. Worf. She bore him a son (Alexander), and partially raised him in secret before meeting her tragic death. Plakson, like Mark Lenard before her and other actors since, returned to the Trek universe to portray a variety of interesting characters. Another notable one was the Vulcan, Dr. Selar. She also played a member of the Q Continuum.

Oh yeah, Whoopi Goldberg's Guinan was fun to draw here, too. The difficulty in rendering her is the lack of eyebrows.

I agree ogrebear. Would have loved to see where the storyline would go.

Such a shame they decided to off K'Ehleyr and not have her has a recurring character!

Great fanfic here about her not dying: [link]

So~~~~ amazing... Each of them are exactly spot-on, and the details are perfect. They couldn't look more like the actual characters if they were black and white photographs. :)

I loved that episode when they see each other again for the first time in the second season,
so passionate! And a little..ugly.
I thought for sure Worf was gonna sock her at any moment XD
Great job on this, and all your other works of Star Trek!

Thank you!

Yes, Suzie Plakson was wonderful, providing the character with just the right amount of humor, sass, and ferocity. No doubt, she's the hottest Klingon since Mara, Kang's wife in the original series.

Definitely :)
Ever notice how Klingons are all really ugly except for Worf and K'ehleyr? It's so funny!

I soooo love K'Ehleyr....
Suzie Plakson was one of the best guest stars in the show together with Majel Barrett and John de Lancie, but you're right, poor Worf really has bad luck when it comes to women doesn't he?! It would've been so cool to see him marry K'Ehleyr the way he married Dax though! Klingon weddings seem like heavy metal concerts to me lol!
And I can only imagine how hard it must've been to draw Guinan, what with the lack of eyebrows and all! You have to have the shadow and bump there but no actual hair... She looks good though, you did an amazing job! And Worf looks great as well, I was always a bit sad that Michael Dorn had to wear so much make up, he's such a gorgeous man! I loved him on that episode with his human brother in which he didn't have the ridges... "Homeward" I think it was called.
Anyway, amazing job as usual :D

Muchas gracias, Lola! :)

Along with your choices, I gotta toss in Michelle Forbes (Ensign Ro Laren) as one of THE best guest stars on Trek Next Gen. Too bad she couldn't be a regular or semi-regular cast member.

Yeah, poor Worf. I never paid much attention to DS9, or the other Trek spin-off series, but I felt the Worf/Jadzia/Dax union was awkward and forced. Inferior writing there. And weird. With Jadzia Dax being symbiotic, Worf must've felt like he was being watched on their honeymoon! LOL! But then, maybe heavy metal Klingons are kinky like that.

Plus, every marital spat winds up being two against one! :D
