I've been gradually building these up for a while now and I think I have just enough of them to justify a thread all of their own.

Borg
Breen (Fixed)
Cardassian
Ferengi
Klingon
Romulan
Tholian
Federation (2240-2269)
Federation (2270-2289)
Federation (2290)
Earth
Vulcan


These are for all you people out there who are sick of those tiny, low-res logos from the Omnipedia. Feel free to use them where you will.

The Tholian logo the Mandel used in the Star Charts is something of an in-joke, actually... he reused the emblem that he designed for the Chig aliens for Space: Above and Beyond.

Interestingly, your Breen logo is tinted green. The Star Charts has it as gold, and it appeared on the war maps on Cardassia as a sort of neon orange.

A couple of things: What about the multicolour Klingon logo? You know, with the yellow circle and red, green, and blue limbs? Also, how about the new Romulan logo?

*gasp* Those are beautiful, Kris! [Eek!]

Small request: could you do them on a plain background, and perhaps with an outline to prevent bleed-over for those who use bitmap editing? I'm thinking I could use some of those in my own maps, but they'd be a little difficult to work with because some of them have near-white colors on the edges (where they look "shiny") and the drop shadow, while good looking for the original examples, would also be difficult to edit.

Thanks, and great work!

I'm "stealing" your Federation 2270-2289 to use as a backdrop in the Okazaki's conference room.

Ack. This one is better.

What about it?

Name the ones you want and I'll e-mail them to you.

Steal away.
Although I do have a propper grey-blue/white version that'd probably look better.

You're correct.
For some reason it came out looking greenish on the scan and I didn't think to double check the original. I have now given it the red/orange/yellow-ish colour that it seamed to have on the war maps.


As for the Tholian logo; not being someone who has ever bothered with "Space: Above and Beyond" I didn't pick up on that reference.
Still I think it works well as the Tholian logo, with it's dark red tint and it's hard faceted edges it's certainly better than the old "two crystals on a grid" version.

I especially like the TUC Earth logo. Always wanted to have a clear picture of it.

The Breen, Klingon, Romulan, Vulcan, and the TNG Federation logos would be great, thank you. [Smile]

My e-mail is in my profile.

Very cool.

I've always wondered if the Ferengi logo is supposed to be a stylized version of their ears. Using a pseudo-sexual organ as an identifier for your species doesn't seem like a great idea... It's be like using a stylized boob to represent humanity...

Anyway... I've always wondered that...

Yeah, that's what the old TNG trading card set said about the Ferengi logo.

Are we sure about the supposed Tholian logo?? It was printed in the Star Charts as the Tholian logo, but that design appeared first in the Starship Spotter recolored as the Species 8472 logo. Which is it??

I was unaware Species 8472 had a logo...

I was unaware Species 8472 had a written language... I thought they were supposed to be very telepathic?
