"Star Trek" is taking art into a whole new frontier at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con with a new exhibition that honors the 50th anniversary of the science fiction franchise.

The exhibition, called "Star Trek: 50 Artists. 50 Years," debuted at SDCC 2016 in the Michael J. Wolf Fine Arts and includes a stunning array of Trek-inspired art, including a piece by the late Leonard Nimoy — who originated the Spock role — entitled "Hand in Vulcan Gesture."

Here's a few examples of the Trek art in the exhibit:
