Donald Trump Unveils New Space Force Seal That Resembles Star Trek Insignia

President Donald Trump has officially unveiled the seal of America’s Space Force, with reactions among Star Trek fans calling attention to its familiarity. that’s because the graphic, which is inspired by an existing Air Force Command logo, bears a striking similarity to the “star trek” insignia.

The space force is a newly developed branch of the armed forces that prepares or conducts space warfare. in December 2019, the US congress authorized its creation, passing a $738 billion military bill that created the sixth branch of the military.

now the Air Force is responsible for branding, uniform design, and various other requirements of creating a new armed force. the service’s new uniform name strips were revealed last week, along with the general’s swearing-in. john W. raymond as chief of space operations, before the unveiling of the logo on Friday (January 25, 2019).

over the weekend, users (including former star trek cast member george takei) were quick to point out the new seal’s similarities to the “star trek” arrow insignia. um. we expect royalties from it,” he tweeted on Friday afternoon.

In 2018, the Trump Make America Great Again committee polled voters on their favorite space force logo. several of these options feature NASA-inspired iconography, but none resemble the final logo.

an official spokesperson said in a statement that the seal unveiled by Trump is, in fact, the new official seal: “The U.S. Space Force Seal honors the department’s proud Air Force history and long tradition of providing the world’s finest space-based capabilities,” it reads.

‘The delta symbol, the central design element of the seal, was first used as early as 1942 by the United States Army Air Forces; and was used in the first Air Force space organization emblems dating back to 1961. Since then, the delta symbol has been a prominent feature of military space community emblems.
