Doug Drexler, sometimes credited under the pseudonym Max Rem, is an artist and a writer who has filled multiple roles in Star Trek production.

Drexler edited one of the first Star Trek magazines ever, The Star Trek Poster Book, ran The Federation Trading Trek Trek store in NYC in the 1970s, and was an important part of the first Save Star Trek campaign in the 1960s. Drexler also wrote two Star Trek comics from Gold Key Comics' Star Trek series in the 1970s. After winning an Academy Award for the makeup in "Dick Tracy', he joined Star Trek: The Next Generation as a makeup artist, for which he was twice nominated for Emmys. In 1992, he joined Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as a designer, digital artist and effects artist, and continued in those roles for Star Trek: Voyager. In 2001 he joined Star Trek: Enterprise as an illustrator and CGI designer, where he was responsible for the design of the Enterprise (NX-01). He also contributed to all four of the TNG movies. After Enterprise, Drexler joined Trek Alum Gary Hutzel as CG supervisior on Ron Mooore's "Battlestar Galactica", where he won two Emmys.

Drexler's cover for Ships the Line which he co-edited and features many images by him

He has written and/or illustrated several Star Trek books and interactive software titles and has contributed images to the Ships of the Line calendars. In 2006 he co-edited the Ships of the Line book with Margaret Clark, which reprinted many of his earlier calendar images and featured new cover images also by him.

Drexler has also created artwork for covers of several Pocket Books novels, including Open Secrets, Precipice, To Brave the Storm, Plagues of Night and Raise the Dawn. In 2013, Drexler and Andrew Probert designed the new Deep Space 9 station for the cover of the Star Trek: The Fall novel Revelation and Dust.
