I had always felt the crew quarters aboard the TOS Enterprise
and the interiors in general to be somewhat sterile and sober given the lack of decoration with paintings and the like.
Then, "Is There In Truth No Beauty" came in Season Three, and suddenly the dining lounge featured four different space art paintings on the wall (vertical frames with several images)
and one in Miranda's quarters
I must say that these space art paintings (depicting alien artifacts?) look really superb and classy and are rich in atmosphere with a unique style of the artist.
Needless to add, I would like to give these a closer examination but have not been able to find these on the web.
Does anybody know what happened to these "props"? Who was the artist?
Or is it a piece of Star Trek history that got lost? I would really like to know...
