I originally intended this to be for Star Trek group members only, but I see no way to do that with an open group, so what the hell...

Vote away, people. Member or not.

However, if you're not a group member, but you like Star Trek, then why not pop on over to the group page and join?

A little trivia: the ST delta emblem is based on the non-cannon Star Trek book, Federation (1994), where Zefram Cochrine explains in a simplistic way of how warp drive works.

Was the explanation something like one side contracts, and the other expands?

How could it be based on something from 1994, though? The original crew wore it in the 60's.

Zefram came up with it before TOS, as part of the book describes past events with regards to Zefram's life. Some events in the book happen before Ze "disappears." The book does reference his appearance from TOS though and explains what happened after that episode.

He drew the familiar insignia shape as he was explaining light speed principles. Basically, starting from the bottom left point, he drew the left line up to the top point, saying as one nears light speed, the energy required to propel mass to light speed becomes infinite (the tip of the triangle). After that, the energy requirements to maintain light speed drop off considerably. That's demonstrated by the right side line from the top point to the lower right point. Now, using warp fields to create a "bubble" around a ship to effectively lessen it's mass, the energy required to reach light speed is vastly reduced, which is represented by the curved bottom line of the insignia connecting the bottom left & right points.

Thanks. I thought you were suggesting the emblem came from that book in 1994. Not the story of how it came to be inside the Star Trek universe, but the actual thing we saw Kirk wearing on his shirt in the 60's. Obviously, that wouldn't make sense.

ST First Contact contradicts some of the backstory presented in the book. Of course, FC is considered canon whereas the book is not. But the book does present an interesting account of Zeframs life before & after his appearance in TOS.

Good one!

I'd say which i picked but there are people here who would probably not vote for it simply because i did.

Lol I know it wasn't the one I voted for, since I'm the only one that's voted for it so far

Ha, great mimes think alike, lol.

I think 3 looks too much like an "easy button", jrSmiley_72_smiley_image.gif

10 looks like it was just hit by a phaser from behind jrSmiley_26_smiley_image.gif

which left me with 5.

Looks tactile, good shape, color and cut out on a great background with the universal ring of an orbit.

( I know, not all orbits are round ).

That made me chuckle. I hadn't thought of that. :)

I kind of like the stark, glowing contrast, though.

Never thought of that, to me it resembled that flash of light you see when a ship goes to warp

This is fun! I voted for my fave.

My choice is overly-adorned, but I swear if you tilt your head you get visual contrast.
