Designer/Illustrator Andrew Probert Joins Cawley Efforts

Well known Star Trek designer and illustrator Andrew Probert will be contributing his creative efforts to the Star Trek: Phase II and Buck Rogers in the 25th Century production teams. Probert will be contributing a design for a Klingon Fighter craft for the upcoming Star Trek: Phase II episode “Kitumba.” Versions of the K-Fighter can be seen on his website here:

A model kit of the K-Fighter will be available from Probert on his site in the future.

“I have been occasionally dropping in on the [Star Trek: Phase II] website to see what’s been going on. When it turned out that James and I were at the same convention ["The New England Fan Experience" in Cambridge - November 2008], and probably being the only person in Star Trek not involved in his projects, I couldn’t resist running over and introduce myself,” remarked Probert during a recent phone interview. “He [James] mentioned that he might need some Klingon designs for an upcoming episode, and since I was currently involved in producing a model of my Klingon fighter concept, with Federation Models, I thought James might want to use it for his show,” Probert continued.

“It will be great to have Andrew Probert designed elements in “Kitumba” – I’m really looking forward to seeing his work in this episode,” said Executive Producer James Cawley. “Andrew will also be joining the team for Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, although the extent of his involvement still needs to be worked out, his conceptual design experience will contribute significantly to the Buck Rogers production,” said Cawley. “As far as ‘joining the team’… I’m happy to do so and even happier to be a contributor to Buck Rogers,” commented Probert.
