    Keith Birdsong Star Trek: The Next Generation: Descent Paperback Novel Cover Painting Original Art (Pocket Books, 1993). Master painter Keith Birdsong provides the cover for this novelization of the two-part TV episode story of the same title. Part one was the season six cliff-hanger ending and part two was the first episode of season seven of this incredibly long-running and much beloved TV franchise. Birdsong's painting captures the characters of Data and Captain Picard perfectly and features a Borg as a bonus. It is signed just under the central image area. The painting is produced in acrylic and color pencils on 30" x 40" illustration board with a 24" x 38" Image area. There is damage on the board edges, but not near the image area at all and easily covered by a mat and frame. Overall in Excellent condition.
