I really only like the blue part.  How much to just cut that piece off and buy that?

very clever headline subby

Oh that.  Not impressed.

Subby here: yes, I know the painting in Data's quarters is "Tableau I" (seen here) and the canon is that Data painted it himself "in the style of Mondrian". It's still awesome.

Looks like some wallpaper you'd put in a Chucky Cheese.

Really, what's the difference between the two?  The perceived genius is in the design, not the execution.  I could probably duplicate the painting with some stencils.

Never mind the painting, how come Data's quarters didn't have a window.  I can understand that as an android he might have thought they were superfluous, but he was third in command of the vessel.

Actually, if you look at who among the senior staff doesn't get windows, it's the robot, the alien and the blind guy.

Mondrian did get a little more creative later on.  Here's his Broadway Boogie Woogie from 1943:

Bondith: how come Data's quarters didn't have a window


It was originally built as Captain Kirk's quarters in the aborted Star Trek: Phase II and was used as such in The Motion Picture (also doubling for Lt Ilia's quarters). It was then reused as Spock's quarters in The Wrath of Khan and The Search for Spock. For TNG it became Lt Data's quarters and doubled for both Lt Worf's quarters and Lt LaForge's quarters.

The film angles and set for Data implied he didn't have or need a bathroom, and the large computer console was explained as a "main" or "high-bandwidth" terminal connected to the main computer core.

Voyager used the same set for junior officer's individual quarters, and when used for enlisted quarters the idea of Voyager being a smaller ship was reinforced by them shown as sharing quarters.

That's a French painter, Jacques L'oreal.  He was coveted in the 80's, but now--tsk tsk.

You could have a nice print on canvas. Or, if you want something really professional. find a local artist to make an actual painted version on canvas for some real flair.

"shiat anyone can do in Photoshop in 30 seconds"  is somehow art. Must have been nice to be the first and make millions.
