Andrew Probert

Andrew Probert's artistic career spans over twenty years, ten of which were spent working on some of science-fiction fans' favorite Hollywood productions. His Hollywood career began on the small screen as a designer for Glen Larson's Battlestar: Galactica. He quickly moved to the big screen as a major contributor on Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

Probert's contributions to Star Trek: The Motion Picture include the Vulcan warpshuttle, numerous props such as the tricorder, and many external features of the USS Enterprise as seen in the first six movies.

In 1987 Probert was hired as senior illustrator for Star Trek: The Next Generation. In many ways, Andrew Probert was to the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation what Walter M. "Matt" Jefferies was to the original Star Trek television series. He designed the Enterprise exterior, the Enterprise bridge, and objects as diverse as the Romulan Warbird, the Tarellian plague ship, the Ferengi, and the half-models of Enterprises past and present that appeared in the Enterprise's conference lounge.

Probert's filmography includes:

  • Airwolf
  • Batteries Not Included
  • Battlestar Galactica
  • Flashdance
  • Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
