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.).  While all of the Trekiverse is open for business, it seems that most of the artists find inspiration in the Original Series, as befits the idea of celebrating its launch in 1966.  I have dropped a selection of pieces below, and more can be found in Mr. Lussier’s article (above).
