a logo/sign of Star Control military forces
« on: January 01, 2009, 05:51:37 pm »

Does Star Control (the military wing of the United Nations' space forces) have a logo or a sign of some sort - one they would have painted on their ships?

If not, do you think it should have one? (time to get creative)

Semi relevant link. I can't recall any official Star Control logo though.

Although it is semi-relevant, sadly it is not useful.

I guess I'll have to draw the logo then.

Yeah, but since my artistic skills are extremely limited that's the best I could do.

I think that they don't have any logo and that green circle on
Hayes shirt is REALLY simple kind of that, if it is a logo or sign.

Of course we can do ourselves a logo for them.

A slave of the Ur-Quan would be wearing a Star Control logo?

I wanted to make just that point also .
In addition - such a logo would be blue , as this is the Human colour in most , if not all space media and the main UN color .


Something like -

Do you think this works?



*edit* made it into a .png

I guess it would be best as vector graphic, but I don't have the skills to do that.

The olive leaves indicate peace , so I am not sure that  the armed forces of the UN should have those as a main part of the badge .
Other than that I like the simplicity and balance of the logo .

The whole point of the first great war was to keep peace and freedom in the galaxy.  It's not like Star Control just decided to invade the Spathi.

Here's something. Much more intimidating, but not especially human.

Shiver's artistic vision gives me the impression that it could be the logo for the Syreen space patrol.

How about Earth's astronomical symbols? Either or , take your pick. Hmm, then again, the former looks like there's a crosshair on Earth, and the second looks like there's a giant tombstone on top of Earth... Who the hell picked those symbols?!

Oh well, I tried.
