What if Law & Order was a science fiction show?S

Comic shop and gallery Meltdown Comics is currently hosting the show "These are Their Stories," featuring art based on one-line descriptions of Law & Order episodes. And some of the artists' interpretations have been positively scifi.

Artist Brandon Bird — whose paintings feature everything form Christopher Walken to Magneto to Benjamin Sisko — curates the show. Each artist was invited to create a piece based on a Law & Order (any series) episode summary from the DirecTV program guide. Some of the artists went for a fairly straightforward or only slightly offbeat interpretation; but others really played with the possible meanings of their given lines.

You can see the full list at Bird's website.
