It is indeed pretty epic, it was one of the proposals for the US Navy's NATF (Naval Advanced Tactical Fighter) program in the 1990s.

You look at this and think "Oh, nice photo of a pretty girl," right?

But this is not a photograph. This is a drawing... and it was drawn with ballpoint pens. And only eight different colours of ballpoint pen, at that. :shock:

I recently found a practical, working LCARS desktop interface, plus voice commands as well as a red alert and stardate function. It's actually pretty cool.

The white scribbling is whiting out possible ID information.
