The sciences! In order (clockwise from upper left): Biology, Geology, Physics, and then Chemistry.
These are hopefully part of a larger project i’m doing, and these are done as lineart so that they’ll collage easily.
These have references galore. I’m not sure anyone will get them but myself.
Also, the concept is shamelessly ripped off of Alphonse Mucha and his The Arts series. But all the designs are mine.
Edit: I added Mathematics at the bottom.

"The exact moment when the Vulcans realized that they had found a planet full of some kinky-ass mofos… And they liked it"
one question i have about first contact.
so, the ship that made first contact with humans was a merchant ship right? and first contact was such a special thing that vulcans set up special protocal to handle it right?
so why would traders make first contact? why not send for a diplomat or something? or at least someone officially part of the vulcan government? why just let this private ship do it? especially when this is FIRST CONTACT BETWEEN TWO ENTIRE SPEICES/WORLDS
The ship that made first contact- at least in this movie, I’m not sure what any lore from TOS might have said- was a survey ship, not a trading ship. (Source)
ah! thats right! for some reason i thought it was a trading ship. I guess a survey ship would make slightly more sense. you would think this is something the crew is trained for. but still, why not send diplomats?
Probably because they’d spent enough time surveying Earth and its inhabitants to know what level of diplomatic training would be necessary to make first contact, I would guess. They probably swung by periodically to check in, knowing that the planet was soon going to be emergent in warp technology.
I would further postulate that whoever was on that ship had the requisite amount of Earth knowledge and diplomacy, without having to drag along a seasoned diplomat. It’s illogical to be unprepared in that event, as much as it is illogical to waste a Vulcan diplomat’s time on a known quantity.
