Star Trek Cats is a 2017 book by American comics artist, fan artist and scientific illustrator Jenny Parks. It depicts Star Trek episodes via cats.

Background[edit]

Development[edit]

"We actually didn't even know what we were going to do at first. We just knew it was going to be something with cats," Parks said. "We played around with doing a compilation of different things. Then, the problem is getting all the different licensers on board with each one. So, we decided to stick with something specific. Since [Chronicle] already has a relationship with CBS, we decided to go with 'Star Trek.'"

 —Jenny Parks[1][2][3]

Star Trek Cats represents Parks' most prominent work since the success of Doctor Mew, where she depicted various incarnations of Doctor Who's the Doctor as cats.[1] Parks has a degree and a graduate degree in scientific illustration at University of California, Santa Cruz.[1] Her fan art career took off with a table at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con where she had Doctor Mew buttons and posters.[1][3] Publisher Chronicle Books had a table a few spaces away.[1] Talks with Chronicle Books began in late 2015 and work in February 2016 to July 2016.[1]

Growing up, Parks was always a fan of cats as well as watching Star Trek: The Next Generation with her mother.[1][2] Her brother and mom would also attend Star Trek conventions in the 1990s.[2]

Content[edit]

Star Trek Cats features scenes from 17 different episodes.[4][1]

Reception[edit]

GeekDad's Jenny Bristol exulted "I can’t recommend Star Trek Cats enough."[10] In a guest post for Cat Wisdom 101, Scottish black cat Clyde meowed the book had "picture purrfect illustrations."[5] The Conscious Cat staff declared it was "an astonishingly vivid homage to the original Star Trek series with an unexpected twist."[16] Reviewing Star Trek: The Next Generation Cats, ComicBook.com's Sean Fallon remarked "These books are absolutely delightful and would make a fine addition to your coffee table."[15] Addressing the audience, The Mary Sue's Keisha Hatchett called it "the book of your dreams."[17] TrekMovie.com's Kayla Iacovino praised the work with "The magic of Star Trek Cats is embodied in the sheer delight I felt upon witnessing the specific cats chosen to represent each iconic member of the NCC-1701 crew."[9]

The Daily Dot's Michelle Jaworski commended it with "beautifully illustrated while it perfectly captures the heart of the series."[18] TrekCore's Jim Moorhouse said "with confidence and panache, the books drawings are vibrant and detailed, with a surprising layer of screen-accurate authenticity."[4] Flavorwire's weekend editor Alison Nastasi received it favorably with "With all the craziness happening in the world right now, I am comforted by small things."[19] Petslady.com's Laurie Kay Olson cited Star Trek Cats as "these illustrations are purr-fect."[8] In a 30-year retrospective, GeekDad's Jules Sherred favored the book with "If you like things on the quirky and fun side, you’ll want this book."[20] Catster's Annie Butler Shirreffs decided it was "a vivid homage to the original Star Trek series with an irresistible twist"[21] Announcing Star Trek: The Next Generation Cats, StarTrek.com staff reflected Star Trek Cats was "wildly popular."[22] Wide Open Pets's Stacey Venzel noted "The crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise has never looked so… feline."[23] The Nerdist's Michael Walsh opined Jenny Parks "purrfectly replaced the human cast of the original Star Trek with a bunch of adorable kitties."[24]

Sequel[edit]

In 2017, Parks confirmed a Star Trek: The Next Generation cat book in the works for publication in 2018.[25][14][1][26][2] The Nerdist's Eric Diaz speculated there might be books for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager.[25]
