Doomsday Machine In Perspective

The Planet Killer was seen in the episode “The Doomsday Machine” of the American classic Science Fiction TV show “STAR TREK”.It was found by the starship USS Constellation in the System L374. When the starship commanded by Commodore Decker arrived in the system, her crew saw this thing hovering over the planet, slicing out chunks of it with a force beam.The Constellation tried to fight against the machine, but it was defeated. The USS Enterprise found her and the Planet Killer later.The Planet Killer was essentially a robot. An automated weapon of immense size and power. Its apparent function was to smash planets to rubble and then digest the debris for fuel. It was, therefore, self-sustaining as long as there were planetary bodies for it to feed on.It attacked and destroyed planets with a force beam, pure anti-proton. Absolutely pure.It had no evidence of life and generated an incredibly high subspace interference.Evidently it was programmed to ignore anything as small as a ship beyond a certain radius.The object’s hull was solid neutronium. A single ship could not combat it.Mr. Sulu has computed the path of the machine using the destroyed solar systems as a base course. Projecting back on star charts, the Enterprisecrew found that it came from outside, from another galaxy.An alien race, apparently from another galaxy created the Doomsday Machine for an unknown war, long forgotten.As I already mentioned, “The Doomsday Machine” is one of my favorite episodes of Star Trek, so here goes another drawing based on this fantastic episode. I do hope you enjoy it.The Doomsday Machine was fully drawn in Catia V5. The environment lights were also created with the Catia V5.
