235 Star Trek characters in pixel form, all on one poster


John Martz says:

Trexels is a limited edition print from John Martz and Koyama Press featuring 235 of your favourite Star Trek characters (give or take a few Tribbles) in pixelated form. The print, an edition of 300, will debut at the MoCCA Festival in New York City, April 9th and 10th, 2011 (I'll only have 25 of them with me). Following the festival, the majority of the prints will be available for sale here on my site (with a few copies reserved for TCAF and SDCC).

  1. Digging Khan v.2’s pecs. Not sure i would have included the repeat Worfs, Siskos, Kirks, etc – but i am liking this. One thing though, do Trekkies really hate the recent movie so much? They’re missing.


    1. [cue comic book guy voice] Cleeeeearly they aren’t. First character on the seventh row is Shinzon, the previous character is his lieutenant-dude.

    2. What new movie? There hasn’t been a Star Trek movie since Nemisis in 2002. That’s my story, and I’m sticking with it.


      On a somewhat more serious note, I’m somewhat embarrassed at how many of those characters I recognized at a glance without even having to put any thought into it. I have no social life.

  2. Those are fantastic!

    They look ready to be dropped right in to a new Lucasfilm SCUMM interface Star Trek game.

  3. The right side of the sixth line from the top looks like it has a few characters from the TNG films. I see the Borg Queen, Zefram Cochrane, Lily, some dude from Insucktion, and Ron Perlman’s Reman Viceroy. I think the first character on the next line down is supposed to be Picard’s clone in Numbesis. Back on the sixth line; the Duras sisters were in the show primarily, but they also appeared in Generations. So that’s eight characters from four movies.

  4. Oh, I’m really REALLY disappointed that they didn’t include Kang, Koloth, and Kor from DS9. I’m betting that’s them as the first three characters on the second line from their appearances in TOS, but they should have been back with face ridges for their episodes on DS9 (Blood Oath is a fantastic episode and one of the best of pre-Dominion War DS9).

  5. I’m sorely missing the alien dog with a horn on its head from ‘The Enemy Within’, and any male officer wearing a ‘skant’ from the first few Next Generation episodes.

    1. Yep, I’m pretty sure that’s Ezri Dax (Nicole de Boer), rather than Jadzia Dax (Terry Farrell).

  6. I was pleased to see the characters from the animated series making it! One of them is the 3-legged dude in the top row, and also the cat girl next to him. STTAS has cheap animation, but good stories. It rocks!

  7. Oh, hey, that’s another addition from DS9 they needed. All the earlier Dax hosts (most of whom popped-up in the series in one fashion or another, if I remember correctly).

  8. So, when (and where) do we start the crowd-sourced annotation process to name all of these characters?

    Oh, I see there’s already a contest from the artist to name them all and win a free copy of the poster for the two people who guess the most characters correctly.

  9. Also, no sparkling glowing entities of any sort, and no Black and White Captain Pike from the original reference print of ‘The Cage’??

  10. I’m impressed. Such a variety of recognizable characters in such a limited set.

    I’m also glad no “Neo” star trek…

    1. According to IMDb, Kate Mulgrew is 5’5″ (1.65m). So, just eyeballing the image, her height looks about right to me. Of course, the fact that they’ve got her between two relatively tall characters makes her look short by comparison.

  11. Hopefully now that it’s been posted on BB, he’ll bring more to MoCCA; stuff like this sells out fast.

    How much is it anyway?

  12. Is that Yeoman Rand in the top row with the pony tail?
    This geek-love is unsettling.

  13. Well done. Took me a few moments to recognize the smoking remains immediately to the right of old Admiral McCoy. hah!

  14. Intruder Alert! Isn’t that robot on the second row from the bottom Satan’s Robot from “Commander Cody”? WTF is he doing here?

    1. That would be the robot from the ST:VOY ‘Captain Proton’ episodes. (I loved watching the old Flash Gordon serials on TVO as a kid, so I loved those eps, btw.)

      1. I hadn’t realised that they’d resurrected that Republic Serial robot for the TV show. Did they also have Commander Cody’s “Worst Ergonomics EVER!” jet pack with the “left-right”, “up-down”, “faster-slower” dials?

  15. Absolute favorite: L’woxanna Troi’s valet (name escapes me…my Trek-Fu is not what it once was). This is some serious geek catnip.

    1. This is chock-full of win.

      @ #36: Mr. Homn.

      As a “Trekkie,” I admit I fell asleep during the latest movie.

  16. OK, I’m not really a fan or anything but I think it’s stretching it on the “cat,” “dog” and “chinchilla,” and kind of ridiculous with the “pile of assorted cookies” and “hardening lava.”

  17. This just makes me amazed at the pattern recognition abilities of the brain. Very well done.

  18. I haven’t seen this answered before, so I’ll ask it here. Paramount owns the copyright to Star Trek and its characters. Would a work like this need to be licensed from Paramount or not?

  19. Nice, but I’m going to wait for the sequel to this poster, the one with 235 of the red shirted guys who got offed in various episodes of the original series. It’ll be even better if Dr. McCoy is saying “He’s dead, Jim” next to each one of them.

  20. #205 bald old man wearing purple I believe is probably the holographic EMH when he went to *insert planet name here* and lived out his “life” with the native inhabitants who never knew his true identity. He became a famous musician I believe….need more Voyager and DS9 re-runs!
