Is the Riker Sit another of the Easter eggs Ryan Thomas Riddle is talking about?
So much future space fabulousness
There’s a few Easter eggs in this space fab shot… can you spot them?
the guy sitting at the back is were the red Sleeveless jumpsuit from the scrap phase II project
Correct! A couple more!
The “set” seems to be based on the early STO concept art done by Probert, correct?
Yep! Wait until you see the bridge…!
So damn good.
I like the diversity you put in these stories. like the same sex couple in foreground of the first panel. it feel like star trek.
She seems to have the “Riker sit” perfected. Maybe that’s an XO thing.
maybe she knows Riker?
I’m guessing they’ve known each other… Biblically speaking?
My guess is that this story is some years before TNG and Riker’s probably not an XO yet…or even of consenting age.
This is 2357, so Riker would be 22. Though, I doubt they met. Delos Reyes pretty much is Riker, or at least what Riker could have been.
I dunno. Given Riker’s opinion in “Pen Pals” was literally the exact opposite to Reyes, I’d say Reyes as Riker is a hard sell.
Hence the “what Riker could have been” as the brash foil to Picard he was initially made out to be.
The characters and their relationships are based on conversations Mark and I had about Roddenberry’s “no conflict” policy, which we both believe the writers took too literarily.
Delos Reyes is what I always hoped Riker would’ve been in the series, as Mark describes it. Picard needed a character to push his sh*t in, much like McCoy and early Spock did for Kirk. It should’ve been Riker.
“Encounter at Farpoint” sets up this conflict in their first meeting, but the series never pays off on it. Riker becomes much more of a “yes man” than a foil.
Riker’s just about starting his career now, if we go by the various wikii. He’s still four years away from being Xeroxed at Nervala.
