    Remind anyone of the Star Trek logo?

    Looks heavily influenced by….Pontiac motors.

  3. Brian says:

    Aim High! Fly! Fight!…Aliens!

    I almost vomited…..

  5. Compared to the first 6 batch which looked like an intern’s 1 hour attempt this is at least an upgrade.

  6. Iggy says:

    Looks like a glitzy rip off of the Chinese space agency logo.

    Oh good,I’m glad we’re addressing the important questions regarding Space Force… What does the logo look like? All the rest is just nuts and bolts.

      You mean, the important questions regarding re-flagging a long-standing COCOM as a separate service. At this point, most of the developmental effort likely IS properly placed on establishing the organizational culture; the big three of who we are, what we do, and the standards “I” (CSO) expect.

      I mean, it’s not like the nuts and bolts, as it were, haven’t been in practice since 1985 or so.

      • Steve says:

        Just to be a bit pedantic, COCOM refers to an authority, while CCMD refers to the organization called a Combatant Command.

    As others hav said. Bette rthan other desigsn presented so far, but it looks like the USS Pontiac of Starfleet. Well they can iterate a few times more. The logo is supposed to be used for some time in the future. Better get it right.

    But I like the motto for Space Force. Simple and on point. Works on several levels.

    For those unaware of the actual lineage of the Delta symbol utilized by NASA/USAF Space Command which the USSF symbol was derived from before this logo version. It’s been in play before Star Trek adopted a variant, this graphic shows where the elements were pulled from:

    As a former KS residnet I would have nominated “Ad Astra Per Aspera”

  12. G3Sm says:

    For those unaware, the Delta symbol for the USSF was taken from USAF Space Command and NASA elements before being also used in this logo version. Star Trek used a variant for the show based on US Gov usage (not vice versa). Here is a graphic that points out the elements of the official seal design:

  13. mike says:

    Uh, Star Trek “copied” NASA.

    The Delta in the Nasa seal/logo has been present since 1959.

    Always Above.

    But sometimes to the side a little too. So just watch it pal.

  15. Joe R. says:

    I voted for:

    “When you own Space, you own everything underneath it.”

  16. Gerard says:

    They also need music. I vote for the original Dr Who music

    • some other joe says:

      Only if we add cheesy lyrics the spacemen are required to sing, badly, at the conclusion of ceremonies. 😉

      • SGT Heintz says:

        CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! It couldn’t possibly be any worse than the Army song!

    “Always on top”. Sounds like an Thai hooker mission statement…
