- Monthly Meeting/Rick Sternbach
Rick Sternbach is probably best know for his film and television work on Star Trek where he created new spacecraft, tricorders, phasers, and hundreds of other props and set pieces for both DS9 and The Next Generation, but he has been a space and science fiction artist since the early 1970s with clients including NASA, Sky and Telescope, Smithsonian, Analog, Astronomy, and The Planetary Society. Rick received the Hugo award for best professional science fiction artist, in 1977 and 1978. He is a founding member and Fellow of the International Association of Astronomical Artists (IAAA), which was formed in 1981 and received an Emmy award for his visual effects work on the Cosmos miniseries in 1980. In 2004 Rick initiated Space Model Systems, an outgrowth of his space and science fiction art studio operation, which has been dedicated to providing unique model and art products to the space science educator, collector, or hobbyist. Most recently, Rick was included in the special committee advising the National Air & Space Museum on the restoration and conservation of the eleven foot Starship U.S.S. Enterprise filming miniature.
