The Cage Original Artwork by Matt Jefferies, for Star Trek episode The Menagerie

"Menagerie Star Trek 1". Walter Matthew Jefferies (August 12, 1921 - July 21, 2003)known as Matt Jefferies, was an American aviation and mechanical artist, set designer and writer, best known for designing the original Starship Enterprise for the Star Trek television series. Besides creating interiors and exterior of the Enterprise, Jefferies was responsible for designing props (including phasers), sets, the Klingon logo and D-7 battle cruiser. Years later, his concept sketches were revisited and used to design the starship Enterprise, the Olympic class U.S.S. Pasteur, the Daedalus-class and pre-Federation Vulcan ships. Within the Star Trek universe, Jefferies tubes and Captain Jefferies are named in his honor. According to Jefferies, the Enterprise was Starfleet's 17th starship design and it was the first in the series, therefore the ship had the number '1701.' This story is documented in one of his sketches.
