Below are 77 Star Trek Facebook Timeline Cover Photos. They were made from my collection of Star Trek wallpapers for various monitor sizes, mostly involving star ships rather than characters.

It was a phenomenal experience which took about 1.5 hours, after which I roamed around the city in character with my friend Halley Davies, who was also my photographer and had a blast! The gallery below show the makeover process and a few modeling shots we got done.
