A Tribute to Edith Keeler: Celebrating the Female Trailblazers of Star Trek


As an artist, it's always rewarding to pay tribute to those who have inspired us and helped shape the world we know today. One such group of trailblazers is the female guest stars from the original Star Trek series. They broke barriers and made the Enterprise a fascinating place to grow up watching. In honor of these strong women, I have taken up the project of digitally enhancing images of these iconic characters. My latest creation is a tribute to the unforgettable Edith Keeler, played by the legendary Joan Collins. I invite you to explore the rest of the collection at GoFigment.com.


Edith Keeler: The Character: Edith Keeler was pivotal in the Star Trek universe, featured in the iconic episode "The City on the Edge of Forever." As a social worker and pacifist, Keeler embodied the core values of compassion and understanding central to the Star Trek ethos. In addition, her tragic love story with Captain Kirk and her ultimate sacrifice for the greater good left a lasting impression on fans of the series.


Joan Collins: The Actress: Joan Collins, the actress who brilliantly portrayed Edith Keeler, is a powerhouse talent with a career spanning over six decades. From her early days as a leading lady in Hollywood to her iconic role as Alexis Carrington on the hit TV show Dynasty, Collins has always been a force to be reckoned with. Her performance as Edith Keeler showcased her incredible range and added depth to the Star Trek universe.


The Art Behind the Tribute: The process of digitally enhancing these images involves a careful balance of preserving the original essence of the character while adding modern touches to bring them to life in a new light. This tribute to Edith Keeler captures the elegance and grace of Joan Collins while also highlighting the strength and resilience of the character she portrayed. By enhancing these images, I aim to evoke the nostalgia of the original series while celebrating the groundbreaking achievements of these female guest stars.
