E is for Ear Worm (Ceti Eel)

E is for Earworm (Ceti Eel)Ok, this one is a little bit of a cheat. When I started planning my AlphaBeasts drawings I thought as far as E and knew I wanted to do this image – which is burned in my childhood memory – thinking in my mind that the famous creature from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan was just called an Ear Worm. That’s what I always thought of it as. But a simple Google search (or maybe being a Trekkie) would tell you that the proper species name is the Ceti Eel. I had already committed to placing this one in E though so I stuck with my improper naming, thus risking a torrent of internet outrage from Trek fans across the world.

So much for planning ahead, by the way. I ended up changing my plans on both C and D at the last minute and almost changed this one too. There are a lot of great beasts to choose from for the next few letters so I’m not even 100% sure what I’m doing next week for F.

    Nice uniform details there, to peg it to the appropriate moment in Trek “history,” and to distinguish your Ceti eel from any more useful ear canal symbiotes.
