The Bayern was a research starship from the RPG "Traveller: 2300" (later renamed "2300 A.D."). This image was created for a piece about the ship published in GDW's Challenge magazine, circa '87. Though I wasn't consciously thinking of it at the time, my stylized starfield has since reminded me of van Gogh's "Starry Night" [link]
each time I've revisited it.
