I just love whimsical, even goofy stuff like this. 🙂
What seems to have escaped notice is a series of comic strips drawn and written by the figures’ creator, artist Mohammad Haque, with the familiar Trek characters rendered in the figures’ style:

Like the “QUOGS” style that was unleashed a few years ago, I think this version of the characters lends itself to fun projects like comics, kids books, greeting cards, and other fun stuff. Here’s hoping the style catches on and we see it used elsewhere.
Maybe then, I’ll be able to do one of my dream projects:
