Rick Sternbach was offered his (otherwise uncredited) illustrator position in the art department on ''Star Trek: The Motion Picture'' in April 1978. Working alongside such colleagues as [[Lee Cole]] and [[Mike Minor]], he designed control panel layouts and signage for the starship sets, and co-authored the updated internal document ''[["Enterprise" Flight Manual]]''. He also helped design the animated [[asteroid]] [[wormhole]] sequence and also helped to obtain source material from NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) that was used in the design of ''[[V'ger]]''. [http://www.trekplace.com/ricksternbach.html] A noticeable contribution Sternbach had made for the movie were the backlit transparencies, based on concept art by [[Matt Jefferies]], seen on the wall of the [[recreation deck]], showing [[Enterprise history|historical]] vessels named USS ''Enterprise''. (''[[Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection]]'', issue SP11, p. 8)

In May 2000, Rick Sternbach established on internet retail and auction site eBay his own webstore, appropriately called "'''[http://www.ebay.com/usr/intrep74656?_trksid=p2047675.l2559 intrep74656]'''" – a contraction of USS ''Voyager''{{'}}s class, and [[registry]] designations. Through his webstore, Sternbach intermittently sells commercialized reproduction editions of his (design) work as on-order-only publications, and which are not distributed to the general public through other channels. Most of his original design, and artwork, Sternbach has sold in various prior [[Profiles in History]] and [[Propworx]] [[Star Trek auctions|''Star Trek'' auctions]].
