Ian, it comes from the Frank R. Paul-painted cover of the October, 1953 issue of Science-Fiction Plus
, edited by Hugo Gernsback (the guy the Hugo Award is named after.)
I turned the image upside down, to make it all the more obvious that Roddenberry & Jefferies took inspiration from that illustration when designing the Starship Enterprise
I like knowing there's a link between Gernsback & Paul (editor & cover artist, respectively) of the first-ever science fiction (or "scientifiction") magazine -- Amazing Stories
-- and StarTrek
