I made this for a Star Trek swap.
The cover, seen when open:

On the top right, you can see the card I used as an inspiration for the Enterprise, it had just the right kind of lighting for my purpose.
The Bird of Prey going after the Enterprise scene is inspirated by a flyer I still have (kept it for the awesome Bird of Prey flight scenes Grin).
I am new to needlefelting, only having worked with it once, years ago. I must say it was very pleasant to work with. Fiddly, and the shrinkage gets some getting used to, but everything can be worked over so well, great for beginners.
I am not entirely happy with the Enterprise itself, but didn't know what to do about it as any color I tried to shadow in refused to look good. Maybe next time, I need to add the writing.

Here is a progress picture to see how I shaped the individual parts before layering them:


One insight: Next time, choose black for space.

That's pretty awesome.   Maybe a darker background would highlight the ship.  I think it's great.
