    Keith Birdsong Star Trek: The Captain's Table Book #1-4 Paperback Novel Covers Painting Original Art (Pocket Books, 1998). A clever and ambitious project, this series of novels allowed the Captains of many different Star Trek franchises to gather at an interdimensional bar to swap stories. Birdsong cleverly designed this fantastic "At the Captain's Table" painting so that it is comprised of four sections, each of which was used as the cover for that Captain's tale. The four book titles were: "War Dragons" (featuring Captains Kirk and Sulu); "Dujonian's Hoard" (Captain Picard); "The Mist" (Captain Sisko); and "Fire Ship" (Captain Janeway). The Janeway novel was reissued with an updated cover featuring the same background... and speaking of the background... Check out Gene Roddenberry standing there just by her head! There are other "behind-the-scenes" people hidden in the background, so this piece has several Easter Eggs for you to find. (We don't know why there is a skink in front of Sisko, however.) Created in acrylic paint and color pencils on illustration board with a taped-off image area of 30" x 14". Signed and dated 1997 in the lower right. There is a slight abrasion in the upper left corner, and a very slight surface wear on the blacks of the uniforms; however, the image area is still in overall Excellent condition.
