Dan Curry is a Star Trek icon. Across The Next Generation, Voyager, Deep Space Nine, and Enterprise, he shaped the look of the strange new worlds, new life, and new civilizations our heroes boldly sought out week in and week out. He also helped put together some of the most iconic space battles and creature encounters in the franchise. A new book is taking a deep dive into his work, and we’ve got a look inside.
