Is there in truth no beauty?
Germain Lussier on io9/Gizmodo reports on one of the more intriguing commemorations for the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, the Star Trek: 50 Artists 50 Years exhibit, which is kicking its tour off at San Diego Comic-Con this week before hitting the road and visiting all the Usual Suspects (Las Vegas, Toronto, NYC, et al.).

I have dropped a selection of pieces below, and more can be found in Mr. Lussier’s article (above).
