By Zach Seemayer
To celebrate Star Trek's 50th anniversary, an art exhibit commemorating the iconic sci-fi series is set to make its world debut at San Diego Comic-Con later this year.
ET has an exclusive look at some of the epic pieces from amazing exhibit, Star Trek: 50 Artists. 50 Years, including this striking retro-futuristic portrait of the U.S.S. Enterprise by graphic designer and illustrator Tom Whalen.
After the exhibit debuts at SDCC in July, it will move on to the Star Trek Las Vegas convention in early August and continue to tour around the globe through 2017.
The Gene Roddenberry-created franchise celebrates its 50th
anniversary this year, originally debuting on Sept. 8, 1966. The first series
aired for three seasons and was followed by five beloved follow-ups along with a
string of successful films, including the popular 2009 reboot, helmed by J.J.
A new Star Trek TV series is currently being developed by CBS Television Studios and it set to launch in early 2017. But, before that hits your TV screens, the third rebooted Star Trek movie will be hitting big screens across the world.
In Star Trek Beyond, Zachary Quinto admirably assumes the mantle of the idolized Vulcan, Spock -- a role that actually required him to continually shave his eyebrows. However, the 38-year-old star says he's actually proud of the responsibility.
